Schools of the Zakeem are everywhere in Terub, administered by the bureaucracy to instruct their pupils in the labyrinthine laws and ordinances of imperial justice called ‘Zakiya.’ Those who satisfy its bewildering requirements become members of the Zakeem, the elite lawyer class of the empire who serve in its law courts as judges and barristers and in its bureaucracies as magistrates. The Zakiya was developed by the sorcerer emperors and the aristocrats over the past six centuries and has become the basis of imperial law throughout the empire where Terub has direct administration.
