best lawyer jokes

It’s no secret that the role of an attorney or paralegal can be stressful at times. Occasionally, it’s important to take a step back, breathe, and partake in activities that support one’s own health and wellness.

Today on International Joke Day, people from across the globe are doing exactly this. We thought we’d share a few we came across.

In today’s digital age, many legal jokes are found and shared across social media. Here are a few these rib-ticklers:

#1. Be classy with the emails
