There are law books about constructive trusts, the Perpetuities and Accumulations Act 1964, and the rule in Foss v Harbottle. This law book is not one of them. Writer David Pannick has always been much more interested in unpersuasive advocates and injudicious judges. In this entertaining and sometimes shocking collection of his fortnightly columns from The Times (London), Pannick passes judgement on advocates who tell judges that their closing submissions to the jury will not take long because "I would like to move my car before 5 o'clock." Pannick also sentences judges who claim to have invisible dwarf friends sitting with them on the Bench, who order the parties to "stay loose - as a goose," and who signal their rejection of an advocate's argument by flushing a miniature toilet on the bench. Pannick will entertain and inform the reader about judges, lawyers, legal culture, and law reform. I Have to Move My Car is an ideal gift for all those who appreciate the lighter side to court life.
