We got off to a great start. David is every bit as coherent and easy to listen to in person as his YouTube presentations. (Some other speakers aren't as smooth in the free-flow of live audience presentations-- but David delivered a 100%).
This first morning session covered a lot of introductory information --including one of the simplest guidelines to different kinds of law I have ever seen, and also a very useful way for people to function well and in proper jurisdiction. I will try to describe this very briefly:
L and = Common Law = Law of Property, Equity and Rights
A ir = Ecclesiastical and Canon Law = Law of Trusts
W ater = Admiralty and Maritime = Contract Law
This is basic to understanding the jurisdictions and kinds of law and what we are talking about as opposed to "venue".
A venue is a place or level where a jurisdiction is being exercised. For example, right now we have State, county, and Municipal courts all functioning under Contract Law. These are different venues with different contracts but they are all functioning under the jurisdiction of Admiralty / Maritime law.
Another vital point I found to be useful to everyone is that each jurisdiction has its own language and that invoking and holding your jurisdiction involves first and foremost using the language of that jurisdiction.
I have, of course, known this for a long time just as a matter of practical head bumping and reading law, but never encountered just a simple yet correct explanation of it.
Gold nuggets aplenty besides this, but in terms of great and supremely useful insights that help everyone understand things better, this is a sample.
