The Law is the Law

Mulla Nasrudin studied law under a tutor.
Since he had no money to pay for his lessons, the arrangement was that he would pay his fees as soon as he won a case.
But Nasrudin did not practice as an advocate.
The Tutor took the Mulla to court.
Nasrudin said, when the complaint had been heard:
‘Your honour. If I win the case, claiming that my tutor need not be paid- he will not get his money.
‘If, on the other hand, I lose, I shall not have to pay him, because I will not have won a case yet: he will not get his money.’
‘What other result is possible?’ asked the confused judge.
‘Case dismissed,’ said Mulla Nasrudin.

    And that is how law works, so people need to know what the contract is that they enter into.
