Dweck 1 Abraham Dweck Professor Swanson EN102/ Essay 2 30 March 2009 Justice: Does it ever prevail? One of the more complex definitions in the dictionary belongs to the word justice. In its simplest form it means to be just or fair, however each person has their own meaning of what fair is in this world. In A Time to Kill by Schumacher, Jake’s former law professor tells him that justice will prevail whether he wins or loses the case (Schumacher 1996). The real question is does justice ever prevail? Does killing Carl Lee for taking out his revenge on the two boys constitute justice or does setting him free due to circumstantial evidence, justice? In A Time to Kill , whichever way the pendulum swings, justice will prevail. If it swings in favor of Carl Lee, and he is prove innocent, then it means that instead of looking at the color of his skin, he is judged like the rest of the men in the courtroom. On the other hand, if he is proven guilty then justice prevails since he is a murderer who took the law into his own hands. In my eyes, he is as guilty as any other person in the world

    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.
