Courtship, wannabe lawyer-style

This ‘Writ of Summons’ was issued on Friday by a law student at Queen Mary University of London to ask one of his coursemates to their law and bar society’s Christmas ball.


We’re not sure that the student’s threat to invoke the law against the subject of his affections (if she rejects him) is a healthy basis on which to build a relationship.

Still, full marks for creativity — and, more importantly, concise drafting.
