Introduction

Law is life; it cross cut our day to day lives, the life of human being is organized, structured and systematized with law. Despite the fact that law promotes the respect of human life in the society it however plays a significant and substantial role in almost all spheres and scopes of modern life. After getting a bachelor of laws one may wish to enter into the legal profession or join a wide variety of other careers for instance banking, insurance, commerce and management and few to mention. Consequently law has two diverse characters. It is an academic discipline worthy of study on its own right as well as a necessary preliminary for entry into the Tanzanian legal profession.
