Law in transit

Law everywhere during my Amtrak commute yesterday.
Tucked into the seat pouch in front of me, the flashcard at left, with these handwritten notations:
Article 3 courts
Civilan ct.
Not long after, was delayed 1/2 an hour at a raised drawbridge, waiting for a ship to pass through the Carquinez Strait. Maritime law, the conductor explained, gives vessels the right of way over trains.
Felt like I was living out International Law: 100 Ways It Shapes Our Lives, a personal favorite among the many publications by the American Society of International Law.
