LEGAL CHRISTMAS SONG CONTEST: THE ENTRIES
Entries closed at 4.00 pm (a traditional time for civil lawyers). Before I send the entries off for the rigorous judging process can everyone who entered make sure they are here.
Some people did not use the #lawsongs hashtag and some entries simply disappeared. So please check. The prize is, of course, invaluable (as are the entry certificates).
and I want to avoid litigation…
