RES IPSA LOQUITUR -- Latin: the thing speaks for itself.

The purpose of the "RES IPSA LOQUITUR" page is to recognize good "things" from the arts that are related to the law:  books, music, movies, and even lawyer jokes.  These are some of Attorney Mogren's favorites.  If you have any suggestions for the list, please e-mail them to Attorney Mogren.
