THE BEST LEGAL CHRISTMAS MUSIC 2017 CONTEST: RAISING MONEY FOR THE BILLABLE HOUR

The Legal Christmas Music Contest is back this year. Bigger and better.  This year the scope for entries is much wider.  This year the aim is to make money for the Billable Hour Appeal.

THE CONTEST

Simply post on Twitter*, or on the comments section of this blog, or otherwise send to me, the best Christmas music idea for lawyers.

  • Song titles.
  • Adapted Christmas songs or carols.
  • Your own legal Christmas song or carol.
  • Extracts from your own singing/playing (if I can put them on the blog I will ).

Use as much space as you want. You can even use more than 140 characters on Twitter – or spread it across several tweets.

(* remember to use the hashtag #LEXMAS2017)

HOW TO ENTER

Make a donation to the Billable Hour appeal here (mentioning #LEXMAS2017)

Tweet your idea using the #LEXMAS2017 hashtag or put it on the comments section of this blog.

If it involves video, or tape recording, I will try to find a way to put it up. In any event it will be passed on to our highly trained and carefully selected judging panel.

There are no entry criteria. You don’t have to be a lawyer to enter. You don’t have to be in the UK.

You can enter as an individual, as a group or even as a firm. (Bear in mind there is only one T shirt, but I will get  a little trophy made).

 

THE JUDGING CRITERIA

There are no objective criteria (so far as I can tell).  No form of entry has preference over another. All bets are off (or on). There is everything to play for.

I’m hoping to pass off the job of judging to a real live judge and some specialist assistants. They will have to remain anonymous to avoid any risk of lobbying, unnecessary skeleton arguments etc.

THE WINNER – GETS THE T-SHIRT AND THE TROPHY…

The winner will get a specially designed T-Short “Legal Christmas Song Winner 2017” – with the winning title emblazoned on the front. Plus (and this is new for this year) a trophy…

   

 

 

THE CLOSING DATE:  22nd DECEMBER 2017 4.pm (NO RELIEF FROM SANCTIONS AVAILABLE FOR LATE ENTRIES)

As soon as possible after the 22nd December.  This means that the T shirt will arrive early next year. (Not guaranteed to arrive in time for Christmas).

 

IN THE EVENT OF A TIE

I will get two T shirts made.

 

LEGAL DISCLAIMER

The judges’ decision will be final. No system of appeal exists.  If you lose you can (and indeed must) complain on Twitter (or in the comments section below) that you were robbed. That will be your sole legal remedy.
