Outside law

The section "Outside the law", is where we'd like to share what we do apart from the everyday law business. The name is symbolic - we;d like to stress the point that "not the law alone, lets a lawyer live". Even if the additional activities are to a lesser or greater extent tied to knowldeg of the law. The deciding criterion, for why certain information is under the "Outside the law" heading, is the results it had. In each case, this consisted of help in solving problems of particular people or entire groups.
