28413874-939A-4729-BE40-28F5FB0E2ED7.jpgMost of us have heard the phrase "ignorance of the law is no excuse" (any moderately adventurous junior-high-schooler has probably heard it more than once). It was first recognized in the seventeenth century (it is often attributed to Coke), but probably had its origins a lot earlier than that. Many -- including us -- have interpreted it as a mandate for legal publishing. After all, if we're going to be expected to know this stuff, there should be a place where we can read it, right?

Today's question is a little different take on this old bromide. Surely this saying conjures up a picture in your mind. Who is that ignorant person? What part of the law don't they know? What can be done about it?

Answers in the comments, please....
