First published as An omnibus of AP Herbertís Misleading Cases, Uncommon Law is a quite brilliant collection of AP Herbertís satirical 'law reports' or 'judgments' on various aspects of the British legal and judicial system. These reports, although entirely fictional, were on several occasions mistakenly reported as factual by the British press. The reports often had a sharp political point beneath their satire, and tied into Herbertís personal crusades against obsolescent legislation.

As Lord Falconer of Thoroton points out in his foreword, 'There is hardly a work in English literature which captures more accurately and entertainingly the attitudes and approach of the English courts with their vanity, their humour and their strength.'
Sir Alan Patrick Herbert - Sir Alan Patrick Herbert was an English humorist, novelist, playwright and law reform activist. He was an independent MP for Oxford University for 15 years, five of which he combined with service in the Royal Navy. He was born in 1890 and died in 1971.

Lord Falconer - Charles Leslie Falconer, Baron Falconer of Thoroton, became Lord Chancellor and the first Secretary of State for Constitutional Affairs under Tony Blair in 2003. In 2007 he became the first Secretary of State for Justice.
