  Pass Law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pass laws in South Africa were designed to segregate the population and were one of the dominant features of the country's apartheid system.
The pass also documented permission requested and denied or granted to be in a certain region and the reason for seeking such permission.
The resistance to the Pass Law led to many thousands of arrests and was the spark that ignited the Sharpeville massacre on 21 March 1960, and led to the arrest of Robert Sobukwe on that same date.

 Pass your bar exam!   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
What our law firms looking for in a resume, well they're looking for paralegals to do all the work and it is best to have little if any ethics if you wish to get hired, all they want is loyalty, not ethics.
Law firms in my opinion are also looking for people who will help them double bill and triple bill clients for work that was never completed without saying anything.
Law firms are looking for people who will look the other way and do as they are told and smile and wear nice clothes and act professional even though they are screwing over every man, woman and child in the United States of America and destroying our nation.

 Law.com - New York's New Bar Exam Requirement Affects Law School Pass Rates
Although the downward trend in bar pass rates was numerically obvious, a handful of campuses -- notably New York Law School and the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, each of which increased their pass rates by six points -- posted surprising gains for 2005.
Still, the release of the statistics upset anew law school officials across the state who called the law board's insistence on the new cut score unjustified and said it is damaging the career hopes of hundreds of would-be attorneys.
For two years, the deans of the state's 15 laws schools, along with the heads of all the state's mainstream and special-interest bar associations, have expressed objection to the score increase.

 Wired News: Europe to Pass E-Trash Law
Under the law, manufacturers would have to pay the cost of collecting and recycling old electronic goods which people want to throw away, this may include arranging door-to-door collections for waste goods or paying for someone else to do so.
In both cases, the laws require careful removal of toxic chemicals from scrap before it can be shredded, dumped or burned, adding to the cost of recycling and encouraging firms to phase them out, or banning them altogether.
Once parliament has voted on Wednesday, the draft law will require the approval of EU governments and will probably be subject to final negotiations between EU states and parliament to hammer out details on deadlines, recycling quotas and the exact rules on financing recycling schemes.

This is because California passed legislation nearly 30 years ago that, with the best of intentions, had the unintended consequence of making it almost impossible for a judge, family member or physician to order a mentally ill person to accept treatment and medication, even on an outpatient basis.

We strongly urge members of the Judiciary Committee to restore and pass AB1421 as it was proposed by Assemblywoman Thomson.

 Senate likely to pass law shielding gun manufacturers - The Superhero Hype! Boards   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Gun manufacturers have pressed for years for such a law, arguing that it is needed to protect them from lawsuits filed by municipalities or individuals that the industry says could bankrupt it.
The House passed a similar measure last year and is expected to pass this bill, if the Senate adopts it.
In such events, we just have to look to the legislative branch to write laws that are as retard proof as possible, but that's usually an evoloutionary process where the law will continue to have to be modified to remove all of these loopholes and such that those who pursue frivolous lawsuits depend on.
