Law is a fascinating field to study because it’s all about the day to day problems people face, and how those problems are resolved within the legal system. Legal systems are essentially about dispute resolution, and studying the weird and wacky range of disputes that come before the courts is always intriguing. What are these people fighting about? Why? What’s at stake? What outcome do they hope to achieve? What would a good solution to this problem look like? How much is all this going to cost, and who’s going to pay?
99% of working people in Tanzania are employed in the 'informal economy'. You might think that an economy which engages 99% of a country's workers should simply be called 'the economy', but the term 'informal' is used by development artists to distinguish the type of economy you find in Tanzania from the type of economy you find in, say, the UK. Undeveloped economies are 'informal' because they operate outside any formal legal framework, whereas in an advanced economy like the UK you can't really do anything, can you, without first consulting your expensive lawyers and having them brief you on a whole bunch of government rules and regulations.
