The Law is a Ass : An Illustrated Collection of Legal Quotations Hardback


The law is no laughing matter. But when one looks more closely it teems with humour.

This compendium contains many witty and sometimes profound observations and sayings, arranged in sections covering justice, the law, lawyers, courts, libel, crime and punishment, and wills.

Each section begins with a preface by the author, containing insights and anecdotes about the law.

The book is illustrated throughout with cartoons and sketches, and will interest and entertain not only lawyers but all who have ever marvelled at the mysterious workings of the law.
