Legal Poetry

There is poetry to the law.  For example, there are several cases that are written in verse.  Enterprising judges will either rewrite famous poems or even invent there own rhymes for cases.  The page on judicial humor at the Gallagher Law Library collects cases in verse, and a lot of other funny legal cases.  You might also want to look at the ContractsProf Blog, which offers a weekly limerick on a big business associations case. And finally, we offer an original limerick, just for you:

                               Welcome back, gentle students of Maurer,

                               As you study from hour to hour,

                               And have many class sessions,

                               Tax to Legal Professions,

                               We hope that you have time to shower!

Enjoy your last weekend!
