LAW 501-001 – Foundations of Law I

Necessity


Most jurisdictions do not recognize necessity as a defense to a crime.

  • John 15:13
    Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
  • Proverbs 6:30–31
    Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;
    31 But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.
