In this book, editors Jarvis, Baker, and McClurg have selected 25 of the funniest law review articles from the past 50 years and arranged them in five categories: law students, law professors, lawyers, judges, and legal scholarship. Also included is a comprehensive bibliography, which is an invaluable research tool. The book’s jacket features an original cartoon by the noted artist Alan Gerson.

“The compilers . . . have put together a book full of witty articles that make good-natured fun of the legal world. . . . At a mere $25, it is an economical choice for a quality addition to any library’s humor collection.” — The Law Library Journal
 
“This book would be a nice addition to a law library in order to show a face of legal scholarship not  frequently represented in library collections. Moreover, it would make a nice gift for oneself, a colleague, or a friend studying in law school for those moments when a dose of humor might lessen the pressures of attending to more serious legal matters.” — New York Law Journal
