Out of Print

From judge to jurist, counsel to clerk, everyone in the legal world - and anyone who has tangled with it - will find much to laugh at in this entertain¬ing anthology which humorously ex¬plores the people, myths and jargon of this most venerable profession.

Here will be found gems to delight anyone who enjoys witty writing. Bernard Levin defends the lawyer's public image in The Letter of the Law; John Mortimer gives us the notorious Rumpole; Groucho Marx writes Letters to the Warner Brothers and A A Milne looks at barristers and solicitors.

There are classics from Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, Samuel Butler and Jerome K Jerome and Art Buchwald, SJ Perelman and O Henry are among those who show us that lawyers are much the same on both sides of the Atlantic.

Included also are snippets of parody and satire, small ironies and great nonsenses, fables and fantastic cases, light verse, scintillating cartoons and one real judicial decision - all bound over in one hugely enjoyable volume.
