What we can learn from the evolution of common law, besides the law?

If you attended law school in a common law jurisdiction, it wouldn’t have take long before you were introduced to the often-repeated story about the evolution of the common law. In the beginning, there were some steadfast principles. However, with time, the pressures of unsatisfied constituents, and the sheer diversity of reality; these principles changed and evolved at the hands of masterful and at times, comical judges. The genius of the common law is its capacity to grow and adapt to meet the needs of changing times. The flexibility and evolutionary nature of the law is a quality that any lawyer facing a possible career change ought to consider adopting.
