How can you get a world as similar to our own as possible, but in which there are no lawyers. I mean, a world in which each person has to defend personally in Court if accused of a crime or if involved in a civil matter? Is a Pod in the Roman era absolutely neccesary, or would a much later Pod be enough? How would a modern world without lawyers look like? Would this world be completely unrecognizable? I started this threat after readings that tha Aztecs had Courts, but no lawyers. Apparently, many Ancient civilizations, including the Greeks, did quite well without them. But, on the other hand, all these where Ancient civilizations. Could a modern democratic do without lawyers.
