Legal humor cartoons have been a part of the cartoon and humor culture as long back as the profession of law started to take hold in the society. The occurrence of legal humor cartoons was meant to be a way to vent out the many grudges and prejudices that had taken hold of the public in general. Lawyers are generally not so well spoken of among laymen circles and thus cartoons resonating with negativity and satire are often seen circulating the many mediums of print and publishing. Being a lawyer although is regarded in general a respectable profession yet the very nature of the profession revolving around punishing, convicting, depriving and in many other forms has become a harsh reality and thus reflects harshly upon those who practice it. At the same time legal humor cartoons do not leave out the very lawyers who are good at finding the many loopholes and flaws in the structure of an agreement or a contract and use it to their advantage. The legal humor cartoons also look deeply into the many forms a lawyer can take and crack jokes on it which are mostly based on reality and simply depict a harsh truth or fact.
