5. Lawyers Lawyers are an essential—if unloved—feature of every developed legal system. They are vilified, mocked, and disparaged. The humour of a multitude of lawyer jokes springs from their assault on lawyers’ venality, dishonesty, and insensitivity. One jibe asks: ‘How can you tell when a lawyer is lying?’ The answer: ‘His lips are moving’.
