As a law student and as a member of the legal profession are you tired of bringing your codals with you?
Did you ever wish you could have quick access to what the law says verbatim ?
All of the Codals stacked up together is more than a feet thick. The solution is simple put it in electronic form and place it in your mobile phone which is less than an inch thick. That way you have your codals with you, always.
But how do you do that? People have been asking me to install codals (Code provisions of the law) since I was in law school and I did not even charge for it. I consider it as service to my fellow students and to my future colleagues in the legal profession. In this article, I will be discussing with you the details on how to put codals in your Cellphone or PDA in order that you could do it yourself. You could also inform your fellow student or other lawyers about this article in order that they may also experience this benefit.
