LEGAL CHRISTMAS SONG CONTEST: THE ENTRIES

Entries closed at 4.00 pm (a traditional time for civil lawyers).  Before I send the entries off for the rigorous judging process can everyone who entered make sure they are here.

Some people did not use the #lawsongs hashtag and some entries simply disappeared. So please check.  The prize is, of course, invaluable (as are the entry certificates). image1-2

A WHOLE VERSE FROM MARCUS

Marcus Weatherby writes

While Rupert watch’d claimant costs by night,
And did a full review,
The angel of insurers came down,
And savings shone around.
“Fear not,” said he, for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds;
“Glad tidings of great joy I bring
fixed costs for all mankind.”
