Quote by Jeremy Bentham on lawyers

A quote by Jeremy Bentham on lawyers is the topic of this blog post.

“Lawyers are the only persons in whom ignorance of the law is not punished.” Jeremy Bentham

“Having worked in the legal field since 1995 I agree completely with this quote by Jeremy Bentham.  Considering that Jeremy Bentham made this quote at least 180 years ago that just shows how long lawyers have controlled and dominated the legal profession.  I have known some good honest and ethical attorneys in my many years working in litigation. This quote is sad but true as I can state from my own life situations I have seen where the average layperson was told that ignorance of the law is no excuse just before they were punished in some way while I know of few if any lawyers who suffered the same fate.  That may not be fair but that is the truth.”  Stan Burman
