I'm an universitary Law student. At my home University we don't follow a system based on cases or reflexion; on the contrary, we are an enciclopedist Faculty: you have a Civil Code, you have a bunch of laws and numbers and you have to spit them out when you take your tests. Is it a good system? No. But it's what we have and I want to be able to memorize as much as I can to be good at.
