@Regran_ed from @afvropolitan - I was sandwiched by men who make things look easy. Spectators watch as they ignore the sweat.
Over a while I've learnt a few starter tips, anyone approaching the court could use.
1. Always have a flexible plan. When you set to work, think of different possibilities, it creates various options for you. The choices you make, helps you streamline whichever alternative you choose. Your plans must be clear.
2. Document all your thoughts, premises, assertions, opinions, etc on a note. However ridiculous you think they could be.
3. As you work hard, work smart. Don't say "Damn! Law is hectic", and use it as an excuse to do dumb labour.
3. Never ever go to court without adequate preparation. Whether you are a witness or a counsel, you should be thorough on whatever you have to do. Preparation may sometimes mean a shift in mindset, or an addition of an extra/spare material, and not necessarily the extra labour. Expecting uncertainties is a basic form of preparation!
4. While in court, you could actually think before, and while you speak. You are neither #AliciaFlorick nor #HarveySpector , but it's fair, since they had already rehearsed their reflexes. Get at it with your own flow.
5. It is okay to be nervous, kind of the usual actually, because it shows sensitivity. Just don't be overwhelmed by it. You will hardly be overwhelmed when you are prepared, and expect uncertainties.
Fun and some extra miles sometimes require the same energy rate. Don't be uptight, have fun!! - Enyinnaya. A

Man Who Spiked Drink to Induce Miscarriage Learns His Fate~thefederalistpapers.com
A man who spiked his girlfriend’s drink with an abortion inducing drug, just learned his fate. It’s BAD:
Wisconsin man has been sentenced to 22 years in prison after being convicted of spiking his pregnant girlfriend’s drink with an abortion-inducing drug.
Forty-five-year-old Manishkumar Patel was convicted in August of attempted first-degree intentional homicide of an unborn child.
His girlfriend never drank the spiked beverage, but miscarried weeks later.
Patel was sentenced Tuesday in Outagamie County.
The former Kaukauna man had been on the run since he was charged in 2007 and forfeited a $750,000 bond.
He was arrested in January 2017 in New York.
What a piece of human garbage.
During his sentencing hearing Patel tried to explain his actions:
Patel spoke during the sentencing, which lasted more than two hours, and expressed remorse.“I have had plenty of time to think about what I did,” he said. “I have no excuse or explanation for my actions.” Patel admitted to obtaining the drug and giving it to his girlfriend when she was pregnant. At the time, Patel said, he justified his actions because their other child had a lifelong medical condition. “I was convinced my unborn child would suffer the same fate,” he said. “This did not excuse what I did.” He also sought to explain why he fled the U.S. for India after he was charged. His father’s health seemed to be failing, Patel said, and he felt he needed to see him for what he thought would be the last time.
He claimed he came back because he wanted to resolve the matter before the court.
22 years in prison seems to short for this kind of crime.
Mr. Patel will have a lot of time to carefully consider his actions.
Judge Determines Rick Ross Can Rap All Over 50 Cent's "In Da Club" If He Wants~hiphopdx.com A federal judge has dismissed 50 Cent‘s lawsuit against Rick Ross over his use of the 2003 hit “In Da Club” for his Renzel Remixes mixtape, TMZ reports.
According to Ross’ attorney Leron Rogers, 50 doesn’t own the copyright or master recordings for the platinum-selling number. In fact, Shady/Aftermath Records are the true owners of the song. https://youtu.be/otbCHLwgXpQ 50 dragged Rozay to court in 2015 over the song in the midst of a public feud, which resulted in the G-Unit boss forking over $7 million for posting a sex tape of his nemesis’ baby mama, Lastonia Leviston.
The Power executive was not pleased by Rozay’s use of the song as a way to promote his forthcoming album at the time, Black Market, and allegedly used the lawsuit as a form of retaliation.
