"If a man sets out to study all the laws, he will have no time left to transgress them."

- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

My goal is simple, make the law a lot more accessible.

There can be no justice without law, and if a growing number of people do not understand the law that is unjust. 

Keep up to date with the latest posts and join my mailing list, that way you'll never miss a post. Don't worry, I won't spam you- ever.

Why should anyone care?

The law touches absolutely everything you do.  The rule of law is what prevents us from being ruled by power. 

The rule of law only works at its best when it is understood by as many people as possible.  So, my aim is to help you understand the law.

Who is this blog for?

Whether you're a law student, a new lawyer or just plain nerdy and want to know a little bit more about something else you'll find something for you here.  If you want to suggest a topic or you have a question you want me to cover then contact me below.

If your name is David, who is Salazar?

I named this site after a fellow countryman Salvador Efrain Salazar Arrue (Salarrue) a celebrated Salvadoran poet and intellectual. I don't kid myself that i'm his next incarnation or anything; consider this a doff of the cap.

Where are you based?

I'm in Melbourne, Australia.  I was trained in Victoria, so I'm better at Victorian law than say, the law in the Northern Territory; but hey I'm always open to learning something new with you all.

How do I get in contact with you?

Drop me an email- let's chat.  Also, the reason why I am where I am today is because I had amazing mentors.  If you want someone to talk things through, or you need help with your crim homework hit me up! Seriously, don't be shy.

I'm a proudly unapologetic brown man with Mayan blood running through my veins.  Defying all odds I graduated from law school and am now out there in the world trying to change it.

I often have no idea what I'm doing and if you're honest, neither do you.

Now that the official part is over...

I am admitted to practice law in Victoria as an Australian lawyer.

I am a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer! If you need a lawyer contact one, don't rely on this website as any substitute for proper legal advice. (Come on, were you not expecting a disclaimer? I'm a lawyer for God's sake)

I hold a Juris Doctor degree from RMIT University, a Bachelor of Arts from La Trobe University and a Graduate Diploma from the Australian National University.

I've differed a Master of Laws at the Australian National University, because: reasons.
