Absurdities of English law are illustrated in 66 satirical essays that are thought-provoking and amusing. Some of the cases presented, no matter how ridiculous, are still studied today. There is the famous case of Albert Haddock, who wrote out a check to the Collector of Taxes on a cow. Then there is the case of Mr. and Mrs. Pratt, who, although happily married, got divorced in order to pay less income tax. This book will teach more about legal proceedings than most lawyers know, provided the reader can stop laughing long enough to learn.
