    I'm thinking about it, but don't tell anyone. I'm sure they'll be all over me for free advice.

    Let me know if you have any specific questions. I've been a practising lawyer for 10 years in Sydney, Australia. I'm also a C5 complete quad.

    Australia, like the USA, is a common law country so the systems are very similar. However, the USA's case law / precedent have diverged more from Great Britain than Australia has (we're younger and have a much smaller population, therefore fewer cases).

    Except for Louisiana, where I went to school. They have the Civil Code much like Europe and South America. Left over from Spanish and French rule.
