Professor Rains provides a humorous collection of modern-day fables based on actual law cases. These tales are for everyone: not just lawyers, but people too. The fables and their accompanying morals offer us ironic views of the illusive quest for justice in the American legal system.

As noted by Justice Eakin in his Foreword, these stories all have value, if only as examples of what not to do. The professor’s reporting makes them come alive, giving us a collection reflecting the wide range of predicaments created by the human species and other nonrational creatures. We throw our self-made problems into the judicial cauldron, which often just mixes them up and throws them right back at us.

These follies of the legal system, and of those who use and abuse it, are cleverly illustrated by the charming drawings of the creative team of E.A. Jacobsen.
