Product Description

This dictionary of legal terms looks to the plain-English meaning of all the words lawyers, judges and anyone else involved in our legal system feel compelled to use. It provides a humorous resource into this archaic and convoluted language and is sure to make anyone you know in the legal profession laugh out loud at its accurate absurdity. In The Dictionary of Legal Bullshit, you will find the definition of such words as: Bankrupt. The state of being that one attains when the government sticks your creditors with the bill for your extravagant expenditures. Jail. Exclusive public housing with lousy neighbors, no view, poor facilities and one of the highest cost per square foot of any living space ever built; but with slightly less violence and fewer drug dealers than the public housing that is available to the populous at large. Plus, find key Latin translations, like: Res ipsa loquitor. Duh. Res judicata. You lost, get over it. Respondeat superior. Sue the one with the most money.

a fun read 21 Aug 2007
By bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this book filled with clever wit and tongue in cheek definitions. The taxonomy of lawyer in the appendix is appliciable to almost all professions. A totally fun read!

not all that funny 20 Aug 2007
By J. Andrew Howe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Given the subject matter, and title of this book, I was expecting something hilarious. The only problem I anticipated was not being able to stop flipping pages, or proceeding from one definition to the other. In reality, this book is very disappointing. I've found the actual humor to be very dispersed, and not really worth searching out.
