Although officially the module introducing the study of law only began on Saturday, the course materials arrived a few weeks ago. This has meant that it has been possible to get ahead of the study timetable as outlined in the materials. Some ideas that have come up already include questions surrounding the definitions and applications of rules, social customs, and laws.
