Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Antitrust Comics

with one comment

It is a well-known fact that competition lawyers increasingly compete in court with economists (at least in the US).

But they may now have to compete with comics artists.

Some background: earlier in 2012, the DoJ filed suit against Apple and 5 e-books publishers for alleged violations of Section 1 of the Sherman Act.

Later in 2012, three publishers got off the hook, settling the case with the DoJ.

But the feud goes on between Apple, two publishers and the DoJ.

In this context, Bob Kohn, a media expert, has refiled a 25 pages request to participate as amicus curiae in the form of a comics. See link hereafter: 104906877-Kohn-Amicus (2)

The result is amazing, and possibly more convincing that the initial submission.  Kohn even managed to quote judicial precedents.

So here goes the question: besides mock trial sessions, should law schools introduce drawing courses in their curriculums?

PS: the above pic is taken from the last strips I read. The Boys is dark, violent and very politically incorrect. A must read.

PS2: thanks to David Mamane (Schellenberg Wittmer) for the pointer.
