Insights, whether legal or otherwise, seldom meet one head-on. Meaningful insight is the result of engagement with a multitude of people and ideas. One should endeavour to engage with as varied a cross-section of people and ideas as they can, even if this means challenging one’s preconceived notions. Doing so allows one to identify and face challenges collaboratively and comprehensively.
