Real life zombie attacks seem to be happening everywherenowadays, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is finally taking notice. It has begun developing its Preparedness and Response plan for the inevitable outbreak of the undead.
Legal scholars are finally taking notice as well, and beginning to address the myriad of complications that will accompany the rise of the zombies. Take, for example, how the estate and income tax laws would apply to zombies; this issue is addressed is the forthcoming publication Death and Taxes and Zombies (Iowa Law Review). Understandably, this foray into the legal ramifications has generated quite a bit of buzz on the web, like on lawandthemultiverse, io9, and nerdcore.
What’s next for zombies on the legal landscape? If you’re looking for an interesting ALWR topic, maybe you can be the one to answer that question!
Thanks to McClurg’s Legal Humor (Lawhaha) for bringing this one to the light of day. You can read his post about it, but you really have to read it in all its handwritten glory (complete with illustrations) to appreciate it.
Don’t worry, it’s only 8 pages long handwritten, and with the illustrations probably only a page worth of actual text. While it definitely is not an example of the professionalism or civility that an attorney should exhibit, it’s good for a laugh and a smile. Enjoy!

Though it can be difficult to believe at times, there is actually humor to be found in the law. And thanks to the internet and blogs, it is far easier to stay amused. One blog that does a particularly good job of combing laughter and law is Lowering the Bar.
Over the past seven years, since January 2005, blogger Kevin Underhill has offered legal humor based on things happening all around the world. A partner at Shook, Hardy & Bacon, L.L.P. in San Francisco, Underhill nevertheless finds time to post at least a few times a week.
While humor is always present, Underhill will often include some legal analysis as well (though he is careful to point out in his “Comical Yet Binding Disclaimer“ that the site provides no legal advice).
