Shakespeare para citar en juicio


Margaret Graham Tebo,
Shakespeare for lawyers: a practical guide to quoting the bard
American Bar Association, Chicago, 2010, xi+155 pp.
ISBN: 9781604428360


Shakespeare for Lawyers: A Practical Guide to Quoting the Bard reveals the practice of law is more than a job to those who do it. Once you learn that peculiar blend of Latin "spin" and double-speak known as legalese, you never look at anything quite the same again. Just ask anyone who is not a lawyer for confirmation that lawyers are indeed a different species of neighbors, friends, parents and coworkers
According to author Meg Tebo, the camaraderie of having survived law school and the bar exam imbues the profession with a sort of "Hotel California" quality: You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave. Or in other words, once a lawyer, always a lawyer. "Shakespeare for Lawyers" commiserates with and celebrates that fact.

Description
Shakespeare for Lawyers contains more than 100 funny, sharp, witty, sad, and instructional quotes pulled from Shakespeare's plays and sonnets by a lawyer, for lawyers, and includes instructions on how they might be used in a courtroom, mediation, or elsewhere. And of course, the book features an extra section exploring what the Bard had to say about the law and those who practice it.
