Lawyers Play Football - Film at 11

What are some good t-shirt ideas for a football team full of law students?

Every year, the staffs of the law reviews at my school play a grudge football match against each other - the Geek Bowl. It's totally for fun, not very serious at all, but a tradition nonetheless.

We'd love to do a witty t-shirt design or slogan for our team's uniforms, but are drawing a blank on ideas. Help us, creative MeFites!

Pertinent information:
- we're the defending Geek Bowl champions
- our journal deals with international law, so bonus points for incorporating international themes, a foreign language, or the word "global"
- lawyer jokes are fair game
- no profanity, please

Tortfeasors is always popular for this kind of thing.

Bad News Barristers is another good one.

Pigskin Plaintiffs?

Gridiron Global?

Maybe a joke about conversion.

One of our 1L football teams was called Ferae Naturae (sp?) -- "Wild Animals." I always liked that one.

Or maybe World of Hurt?

Something about how the Geneva Convention doesn't apply on the field.

You walking on this field = consent for us to commit an intentional tort.

The ICC doesn't have jurisdiction over the war crimes that are about to occur on this field. (that one not in the best taste admittedly, but I spent too much time researching the jurisdiction of various international courts not to throw it in)

We are going to breach your defenses like the US breach international customary law when it supported and armed the Contra guerrillas in their war against the Nicaraguan government and by mining Nicaragua's harbors. See Military and Paramilitary Activities in and against Nicaragua, 1984 ICJ REP. 392 June 27, 1986.
