'The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.'
Henry VI, Part 2, William Shakespeare

Quotations about lawyers - for lawyers - by lawyers ... and others.

In this literary reflection of every aspect of the law, John Reay-Smith calls as witnesses eminent lawyers and writers from many ages. Here is wisdom from the ancient world and wit from the most incisive minds of more modern times.

Quotations range from the serious to the purely amusing and sublimely ridiculous. Judges, barristers, solicitors, police officers and prisoners are brought before the majesty of the law in over three hundred pithy and memorable quotations.
