TIMOTHY FOSTER:
THE
BOOK
OF
HUMOROUS
LEGAL
ANECDOTES.
Published by Springwood Books Ltd., Price £7.95 hardback.
More than sixty practitioners from the Bench, Bar and
Law
Society
contribute to this hilarious collection
of
good stories offered purely for
amusement. The witty drawings by
'Bec'
and
'Tak'
serveonly to enhance
the humour factor.
This 'anthology' confirms the level
of
wit and good humour that
exists among those who practise within our judicial system and reveals
that some, a small number of course, have no mean ability as fiction
writers.
It should be noted that the author wishes his royalties to be donated
to worthy causes, which should increase the sales. SWR

spill over into the civil law ,material on forfeiture, seizure and condemnation
is added.
