The ABA had published this book, Shakespeare for Lawyers, so you can find the perfect quote for your next appellate brief or legislative committee hearing. If you're an ABA member, you get a discount on the price. And just for the record, Shakespeare is popularly misunderstood on his "first kill all the lawyers" line. The full line explains that if we want anarchy to reign, the first thing to do is to kill all the lawyers. Shakespeare frequently expressed appreciation for the rule of law (quite understandable given the religious strife of his time) and many of his quotable lines to that effect are in this book.
