Ed Tuttle, Associate Justice - Jay Wexler

E-mail Print PDF

Would you let Jay Wexler teach constitutional law?

Come on, just look at the guy. How can you possibly expect to take someone seriously who'd have his picture taken with the bathroom door open in the background? So unprofessional.

When it comes to taking a break from the drudgery of assigned readings for class though, this Boston University law professor's latest book, The Adventures of Ed Tuttle Associate Justice and Other Stories, might just do the trick. Come to think of it, maybe Wexler's assigned readings are just a ploy to drive up demand for his book.


Wexler's stories are absurdist humor, held together by a thread of legal-esque logical analysis. A zoo for only black and white animals, an associate justice of the Supreme Court looking for a little wink and tickle during the off season, off season baseball players looking to give the nod to a prospective associate justice of the Supreme Court, and a sit com with the always hilarious setting of death row.

Paperback edition available from Amazon for $16.99, or you can get the Kindle edition for just $5.99. What else are you going to do with six bucks? Hire a Big Law first year for 72 seconds? Just get the book, you'll enjoy it.

And while you're at it, you should also take a look at his article The First Ever (Maybe) Original Jurisdiction Standings in the Journal of Legal Metrics. Who'd have thought Minnesota would have the best win percentage?

You can also listen to my interview with Professor Wexler in the latest episode of Law Blah Blah, available by clicking right here on this link, or by using the media player dohicky on the left side there.
