Michigan law is constantly changing. Every month new laws are introduced, discussed and debated, and passed. But not all laws introduced are passed. And some laws get a lot of media attention, while others slip by under the radar with no one any the wiser. All in all, it can be very difficult to keep up with what’s legal and what isn’t. Especially when it’s something you’ve been doing (or not doing) for decades, and suddenly you find out that the laws have changed.
This year has been a busy year for the legislature.
So far this year, before the legislature broke for the summer, 150 new laws had already been passed. And that’s not including the laws that were passed last year and only went into effect this year. That includes Michigan’s new genital mutilation laws, the “job-hopping cops” laws, and the law protecting athletes by requiring new training for high school coaches. As for laws passed this year that will go into effect later, there are many, including the one where drivers will have to give bicyclists at least three feet of space while passing.

Go even one year without reading the news, and you’ll miss a whole host of legal changes here in Michigan. So when you stop to consider how that must affect the lives of people who can’t afford to have internet connections, or daily newspaper subscriptions. Imagine how challenging it must be for people who knew the law to be a certain way with regards to a specific subject, to suddenly discover that something they’ve been doing throughout their life is against the law!
“Ignorance of the law is no excuse!”
You’ve probably heard the well-known saying “Ignorantia juris non excusat or ignorantia legis neminem excusat” which in Latin translates to “Ignorance of the law excuses no one!” However, that’s where a skilled defense attorney comes in. There are certain, limited situations where that proverb may not apply, but only an experienced defense attorney would know exactly where this type of defense could be used, and where it couldn’t.
