kill all the lawyers?

Originally published at Faith Seeking Understanding. You can comment here or there.

This is pretty awesome. A contract lawyer does an analysis of Bilbo’s contract with Thorin + Co. to be their burglar. He uses American and British common law so it probably wouldn’t hold up in any court in the Shire (or Rivendell, as he actually suggests would be a good venue for litigation).

BILBO BAGGINS V. THORIN OAKENSHIELD, ET. AL.: IS THE HOBBIT’S CONTRACT ENFORCEABLE?

Minor spoilers, but for the book rather than the movie.

Ha ha, that's awesome! Philosophers write philosophical analyses of their fannish loves, lawyers write contract analyses of same.
