The law is no laughing matter. But when one looks more closely it teems with humor. 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 Ronald Irving, containing insights and anecdotes about the law. The book is illustrated throughout with cartoons and sketches, and will interest and entertain lawyers and all who have ever marveled at the mysterious workings of the law.
