Legal hopeful offers the general public an opportunity to “dazzle your friends” and “astonish your work colleagues” for as little as £1 as he bids to fund his lawyer dream.


“Carefully written in a striking shade of black, all three letters stand boldly upon a genuine piece of white card measuring 76mm x 127mm…” The item’s description makes for entertaining reading.


Pictured: a piece of the law. All proceeds from its sale will go to “a genuine British law student seriously struggling to get by”.


“Your Own Piece of British Law” appeared on eBay on Wednesday, with bidding to close this Saturday. The seller, dlongman88, is based in Manchester. Coincidentally, the sale comes on the one year anniversary of the appearance of the ‘UK Criminal Justice System‘ on the auction site.
