Erin Barrett and Jack Mingo score again with a collection of over 500 fascinating facts and trivia bits about lawyers, organized into topics such as Judge Not, Unless Ye Be a Judge, I Fought the Law and the Law Won, Fightin' Words, and Money Grubbing. Among the tidbits contained here:
-- One-time lawyers who went on to other jobs include John Cleese, Mahatma Gandhi, Julio Iglesias, and Geraldo Rivera.
-- Two-thirds of U.S. presidents have been lawyers, but not Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, or Harry Truman -- they dropped out of law school.
-- The number of lawyers in the U.S. doubled between 1970 and 1985; now more than 65 percent of the world's lawyers are in the U.S.

The golden oldies -- Fightin' words -- Yo-ho, yo-ho, a lawyer's life for me -- Don't know much about history -- Skirting the law -- Barnyard briefs -- It's the law! -- Larger than life -- Judge not, unless ye be judged -- Courtside seats -- Law speak -- Breaking up is hard to do -- I fought the law and the law won -- Justice, injustice, and everything in between -- The root of all evil -- Law by the numbers -- Life outside the law -- Take it from me--
