    I don't quite agree with the statement. Not everyone is knowledgeable in the laws but life carries on.
    I would say legal knowledge has a bearing on our daily lives.

    I agree with Ted. That's why we want to know the source and author of the quoted sentence, entytse.

    I agree, but ignorance is no defence, meaning not a complete defence.
