Book Review: The Bramble Bush: Some Lectures on Law and Its Study, 31 Columbia Law Review 515 (1931)

Abstract

There are those to whom the law is sad and serious-too serious for such

phrases as "bramble bush," "anticipatory jawing," "legal germicidal soap," "gutlessness

of second-year classes," "the Bull Roarer comes," "be an aspiring

vegetable," "wisecracking over the Yahoos in the sticks." It must be approached

with dignity. And as for approaching it with a poem-an original poem-what

is the world coming to! To introduce ambitious and hopeful young men to our

Lady of the Common Law by quoting in full Sandberg's verses saying that "a

hearse horse snickers hauling a lawyer's bones"-surely this is near-sacrilege and

complete self-debasement!
