A Legal Evolution

You know there are more people in law school right now than there are lawyers on the entire planet? Think about that. [St. Elmo's Fire (1985)]

He fareth best who loveth best
All fees both great and small
For the Bench declare that etiquette
Of the Bar is "pocket All".
[Punch, 1847]

There is a general prejudice to the effect that lawyers are more honourable then politicians but less honourable than prostitutes. That is an exaggeration. [King, Alexander, Rich Man, Poor Man, Freud and Fruit: Advice to Amorous Ladies, (1965)]
