In America the law has been a great source of civic education. Law as litigation, law as case and controversy, law as dynamic local process between contending parties where obligations are made clear and conflicts are defined by lawyers and judges, law advancing by successive approximations has made our society aware of its problems. Individual citizens learned their political responsibilities from laws and. in obeying statutes, came to believe in their provisions.
