In Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” he gives many concrete well- thought out reasons behind how he ended up in the Birmingham city jail and why his actions were justified. A portion of the letter that I would like to play the role of the devil’s advocate for is the difference between just and unjust laws. The two main differences stated between just and unjust laws are that just law are in accordance with moral laws and and imposed evenly upon all majority and minority groups, while unjust laws are not. In theory, the statement that an unjust law is one that is in opposition of moral laws seems equitable but who is to say one person’s morals are more correct than another person’s morals? Yes, most people have similar common beliefs concerning what is acceptable but who are we to push aside the minority that says they believe otherwise.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
