Lowering the Bar: Lawyer Jokes and Legal Culture
Book Cover, Preview and Reviews
Marc Galanter, the author, is the John and Rylla Bosshard Professor of Law and South Asian Studies at the University of Wisconsin - Madison and LSE Centennial Professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Professor Gallanter makes an important point in this book, similar to what Sigmund Freud wrote in his classic study entitled Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious. The serious side of humor is usually the essence of a lawyer joke. Lawyers are widely mistrusted by non-lawyers. The victims of lawyers sometimes do not know that their rights have been violated at the time of occurrence; they usually do not know of any effective legal remedy for recourse to protect their rights; and they are often afraid to speak out because of fear of retaliation. Yet their need to vent is so great that they resort to humor to express their outrage, and the humor serves as a safe cover. If questioned about their meaning, the joke-teller can always say, "I was just joking!" 
Top searched lawyer psychological abuse terms: honest lawyer, good lawyer, bad lawyer, psychological abuse, psychological assault, coercion, tyranny, power, control, manipulation, exploitation, PTSD, bar association, ethics rules, grievance, criminal defense, family law, divorce, personal injury.
