THE LEGAL CHRISTMAS MUSIC CONTEST 2018: ENTRIES
The Legal Christmas Music contest has now closed. The entries have been on a high standard, we are awaiting a reserved judgment from the experienced judging panel.
THE CONTEST: A REMINDER
This year we were looking for the best title for a band (orchestra, choir, or musical ensemble of any kind) made up of lawyers. If you can get a Christmas theme in as well, all the better.
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 …
The winner will get a specially designed T-Short “Legal Christmas Song Winner 2018” – with the winning title emblazoned on the front.
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.
The Flaming LIPs
My entry is *Magna Carta* because no group of lawyers would be daft enough to use that as part of a legal case.
