The law is normally no laughing matter. But when one looks more closely it teems with humour. This entertaining compendium contains many witty and sometimes profound observations, sayings and anecdotes about the law, lawyers, courts, justice, crime and punishment, libel and wills.

Illustrated with both historical and recent sketches, it will interest and entertain not only lawyers but all who have ever marvelled at the mysterious workings of the law.

Ronald Irving read law at Wadham College, Oxford and spent his working life as a practising solicitor in the London courts. He is co-author with Charles Anthony of the classic Know Your Rights and has written extensively on legal subjects for The Times.
