lawyers’ Wit

• Q: What’s the difference between a lawyer and an angry rhinoceros?
A: The lawyer charges more.

• Despite his best efforts, the lawyer’s client was convicted of murder and sentenced to die in the electric chair. On the eve of his execution, the convict called his attorney for last-minute advice. He was told, “Don’t sit down.”


We educated, privileged lawyers have a professional and moral duty to represent the underrepresented in our society, to ensure that justice exists for all, both legal and economic justice.

Sonia Sotomayor
