What’s so funny? Competition - Prizeman (sic) wins prize

If nothing funny has happened to you in your legal career, you may not be doing it properly.

Here is a winning entry in a Competition by the Queensland Law Society. What is the funniest thing that has happened so far in your legal career? Tell us in 150 words or less to be in the running  to win a copy of "I'll Have the Law on You". 


The funniest thing that has happened so far in my legal career occurred when the prosecution called on a surprise mention of a matter in the Magistrates Court. I was not in possession of my jacket, so I impressed upon the Duty Lawyer the situation and relieved him of his jacket. Only after appearing in my mismatched suit did the Magistrate not only grant me leave to appear without a jacket, but also commented on my improvised dress sense.
Winning entry by William Prizeman, Criminal Lawyer, Legal Aid Queensland, Rockhampton
