Choosing and Working with a Lawyer
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.
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!"
