Lawyer Joke of the Week: JDs in the Jurassic Era

Last update





Print Friendly, PDF & Email
Wanted: your best lawyer jokes. Go ahead. Make us laugh.

Q: What do honest lawyers and dinosaurs have in common? A: They’re both extinct.

Relax, it’s only a joke.

Here at Alta Pro we know practicing law is no joke. But we also think it helps to maintain a sense of humor. Not only that, but lightening things up in the law office is good for business. Studies show humor boosts morale and retention while reducing turnover and office stress.

Got a good lawyer joke? Send it to us. If it makes us laugh, chortle, giggle or chuckle, we’ll publish it so others can share in the mirth.

When you’re a member of Alta Pro Lawyers RPG, you get the Pro Practice Playbook, discounts on CLIO software and TASC products, free webinars, 24/7 risk management help and more. Learn how to join here.

Making the Case for a Wisecrack

Here are nine other business benefits of humor, courtesy of Jacquelyn Smith and Forbes.

  1. People will enjoy working with you.
  2. It’s a potent stress buster.
  3. It’s humanizing.
  4. It puts others at ease.
  5. It stimulates creative thinking.
  6. It helps build trust.
  7. It makes you more approachable.
  8. It can help your firm stand out.
  9. It can increase productivity by creating an upbeat atmosphere, promoting interaction, and encouraging thinking outside the box.

A final note: How many lawyers does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: Three. One to climb the ladder. One to shake it. And one to sue the ladder company.

Got a better one? Send it now! We’re waiting.
