Lawyers are members of the public.

Much of the work of the High Court Laws involves the definitions/meaning of words in a social context.

And, because they are hearing adversarial cases with competing arguments, you will find the word "opinion" showing up frequently
in the judgements of courts such as SCOTUS and Australia’s High Court.
