Property helps when you're buying a house. Con Law helps ensure that a routine traffic stop ends with you being arrested.

Cops really like it when you try and show off your knowledge of the law in whatever situation may arise that has you talking to them.

Don't underestimate the level of interest that bouncers have for drunken legal threats when they're throwing you out of the club. Oh, and make sure you talk about how you bill in an hour what they make in a week. They love this!

"am i free to leave?"

i think this one is more practical than ridic. esp if you wander around intoxicated a lot.

im 0L but i heard that from a lawyer once. happened to be from a lawyer who got prosecuted for assaulting seven (7) police officers. at a police station. so im not certain about his judgment.

To be fair, assault is a police synonym for 'didn't do exactly what I wanted'.
