Legal disputes can be both comical and bizarre. Indeed the facts of a number of famous law cases almost beg to be set to words and music and celebrated in a comical book. This is just such a book and the reader (or singer) will find inside a large number of leading decisions of the courts (plus a few not quite so leading) presented as songs, with every one set to a different tune taken from the Gilbert and Sullivan operas. They are all based on decisions which in one way or another are entertaining or diverting and/or which raise particularly interesting questions for the law to resolve. Readers will discover entirely new ways of appreciating Donoghue v Stevenson, Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball Co, R v Brown and many others.
Judges, lawyers and law students alike may find understanding of such areas of law as negligence, defamation, privacy and harassment will be immeasurably enhanced; Gil- bert and Sullivan fans will discover familiar arias in new settings; and anyone who likes reading, singing, performing or listening to amusing songs will undoubtedly enjoy this unique contribution to legal learning and literature.
The songs are illustrated by quirky and beautifully drawn cartoons. And the musical score for every song is provided at the back of the book.

“Professor Todd, author or co-author of some of New Zealand’s leading legal texts, has produced a thoroughly entertaining collection of songs based on well-known cases and set to tunes from Gilbert and Sullivan operas.”
