The National Law Journal reports that the South Carolina Supreme Court has disbarred an attorney who, while suspended from practicing law, posed as another attorney. We at Comedians at Law completely understand a lawyer wanting to pretend to be someone other than himself or herself.  But a lawyer pretending to be a lawyer?  Why would you want to pretend to be that?  If you're gonna bother to pretend and make-believe, why not pretend to be someone or something cool.  Like a dragon, or a rockstar, ...

With the Republican National Convention in full swing, there have been rumblings in Tampa that some GOP member are so disgusted with their own party's rhetoric that they are considering starting an official third party. This is an unfair statement because there are tons of other parties out there, just no one takes them seriously. Probably because they are typically based around one central issue that only a small cross section of people find important - like the rights of the white tailed muskrat. ...

Comedians at Law pulled this report of Yahoo a short while ago. A Yahoo News' Washington bureau chief David Chalian was fired today after a hot-mic incident during an online broadcast from the GOP convention in Tampa. During the broadcast, Chalian can be heard saying that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife Ann were "not concerned at all" and "happy to have a party with black people drowning." Chalian seemed to be referring to the simultaneous occurrence of the GOP convention ... [click here to read more]

As everyone knows by now, Apple just won a billion dollar verdict against Samsung for patent violations.  Samsung, of course, vigorously denied that the Schmypad was an exact copy of the iPad, but the jury was unconvinced and awarded Apple a billion dollars (a sum, which to Apple -- the richest company in the World -- is like loose change under the sofa cushion). But, lost in all the articles analyzing the trial was the good part -- the part that all us lawyers care about.  That's right our ... [click here to read more]

The National Law Journal reports that "University researchers using magnetic resonance imaging have found that intensive LSAT study alters the brain reinforcing circuits, helping to bridge the gap between hemispheres and increasing connectivity between parts of the brain associated with reasoning and thinking." In essence, making you smarter. And, then, you use all that newly created, new-found intelligence to disregard the advice of every other attorney in the world, who is waving his or her ...

Yep, you heard it right.  There’s law school porn.  Who knew?  And, why didn’t anyone tell any of us while we were in law school. Oh, wait, according to Law.com “law school porn” isn’t all that pornographic. It’s just the various promotional materials “that schools use to tout their achievements in hopes of boosting their U.S. News & World Report rankings.” Yawn. That’s not prurient.  That’s not titillating.  That’s not enough to make a teenage boy hack a parental ... [click here to read more]
If you're a 1L, you are probably almost finishing your first week of law school.  I'm sure you're already wondering, "WTF did I get myself into?"  We wondered the same thing, hell, we're still trying to figure it out.  One of my biggest problems at law school was all the jargon and ethereal concepts.  The first one i struggled with was "consideration."  Yup, you know  that any enforceable contract has three components: offer, acceptance and consideration. Offer and acceptance were easy. But ... [click here to read more]
All this brouhaha over Romney's refusal to show us the money could apparently be solved by Harry Reid. Essentially, their is a rule that says some members of Congress have this right. Should they use it? According to Huffpo, "although Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney refuses to release his tax returns from the years prior to 2010, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, President Barack Obama and key members of Congress could all view any tax document that Romney has filed. Under ... [click here to read more]
