I reached that part of my life where there's a growing urgency to follow the treads of Dr. Bucephalus and retreat to study the books of law. However, while RnRSes are beautifully written documents that are a pleasure to read, most other formal documents that I have came across are better described as an amalgam of underspecified statements and paradoxical contradictions. Since I have never received proper education in this matter and my online research ended fruitless, I am now turning to you for your wisdom and guidance. Is there a method to this madness? How are we to study formal documents?
