‘A hilariously accurate canard on m’learned friends. The perfect gift for the legal eagle in your life’
The Independent on Sunday
‘A very likeable companion… the ideal book for the smallest room in the house.’
In Brief Monthly
The very best of Steuart and Francis's Queen's Counsel. Everything you wanted to know about the law but didn't want to pay GBP300 an hour to find out! Lawyers affect the lives of us all, whether through buying a house, getting a divorce, making a will -- or being forced to sit next to one at a dinner party. This book is for everyone who wants to get their own back. Queen's Counsel is the successful strip cartoon which appears every Tuesday in the law pages of The Times. Its good-natured satire on lawyers and the legal system has made it compulsory reading among members of the legal profession. The Best of Queen's Counsel brings together the funniest and most popular moments of Steuart and Francis's continuing saga of life among the tennants of 4 Lawn Buildings: head of chambers Sir Geoffrey Bentwood; aspiring head of chambers Edward Longwind; idealistic, downtrodden pupil barrister Helena; and solicitor Richard Loophole.See all Product description

It's closer in format to the New Yorker's book of lawyer cartoons.
Anyone interested in legal humor, or in giving a lawyer a book of legal humor (as a way of saying, "Don't try pulling any of that 'dignified lawyer' stuff on me), should definitely have this book around.
It's not cheap, but neither are lawyers. I would note that this isn't lawyer-bashing humor. It takes shots at lawyers (okay, barristers and so on), but the shots are good-natured and clearly the product of an insider to the profession.
