Firstly, television series such as Boston Legal and the Practice are great for exposing oneself to lawyer terms and law related questions and situations. However, our recommendation is to watch Suits, because they not only show the viewer how to answer law questions but answer them with style, which should be your ultimate aim.
Then there are the various terms one can use in different situations and on different questions. ‘Objection!’ or ‘I object’ are two popular answers to law questions. This not only shows your assertion but gives the impression that there is something wrong with the question or statement itself. It also makes you look and sound professional as well.
‘Sue me!’ or ‘I’ll sue you’ are two other popular answers to law questions as well. As opposed to the usual ‘bite me’ or ‘kiss my ***’, these terms express the same meaning but in a more law friendly way.
‘Permission to approach the bench’ can be used in a multiple of law related questions. Firstly, this can allow you some time to think up an answer. It can also be used to court a member of the opposite gender by seeking permission to approach the other person in a law friendly way.
The final way to answer a law question is to shout, at the top of one’s voice, ‘I am the law!’ This is a ‘shut up’ call to the other person and should end the need of answering the question there and then.
