Law gives you the solution, Philosophy the insights
A problem has been brought to your attention, it is up to you to fix it. That is, to find possible legal solutions. Many of these solutions have their basis in law but there are always a few aspects that might make you question your well found and sometimes (necessarily) cunning solution. Everything is done within the legal borders, and loopholes. You present your solution without any second thoughts, awaiting the gratification you so deserve, not thinking about any internal implications of your solution. You are a legal professional, come what may, but sometimes you can’t help but wonder: I know I am right, but is it right? Philosophy forces you to reflect upon your decisions, to not only question what is legal, but also what is (morally) right.
