Are you a lawyer, or a "jailhouse lawyer"? ;)  The ridiculously
over-zealous punitive nature of the legal system, at least in America,
always has a massive bias against the individual. Essentially, you don't
have any rights in America, and memorizing a bunch of random
proscriptions might put you in a slightly better position than someone
ignorant of the law, but then again it probably won't matter. 

Of course, if you have enough money, that's always a good way to get
"justice".. ;)
