The appeal of this wonderful collection is not limited to lawyers. It is for anyone who delights in our ability to laugh at ourselves and takes pleasure in the wit, ingenuity and daring that has created sayings that deserve to be recorded and enjoyed. The practice of law may be mocked but the laughter never demeans the cause of justice.

This collection is compiled from a vast range of sources that include: William Shakespeare, Winston Churchill, Woody Allen, Lord Denning, Ronald Reagan, Oscar Wilde, Sir John Mortimer, FE Smith, John Buchan, Charles Dickens, John Cleese, Benjamin Franklin and many others on topics as diverse as adultery, death, money, law, taxes and even wigs!

  • A remarkable anthology whose wit and humour is truly timeless.
  • A collection that should become a permanent feature of any humour shelf.
  • This anthology can be read and re-read to reveal its pleasures.
  • Foreword by the former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales
