Whether in a modern legal case or a Hollywood courtroom drama, the successful practice of law rests heavily on incisive, pithy, and often witty language. This collection of more than 3,000 thematically arranged quotations includes pronouncements from leading judges and legal commentators, as well as hundreds of quotations from literature, the movies, and popular song. Here Oliver Wendell Holmes, Clarence Darrow, and Abraham Lincoln share the pages with Mark Twain, Will Rogers, Kurt Vonnegut, Woody Allen, and Bob Dylan. The most scholarly and complete reference work of its kind, it also includes extensive author and keyword indexes, and is a must for lawyers, students, and anyone interested in the legal system.
