material for the 1994-95 musical was Damn Yankees, so
of course it had to be called Damn Lawyers. The plot
centered around one Joe Hardy, a half-witted Kwik-Mart employee
who has taken the LSAT six times and still can't score higher
than his diminutive wife's weight. In his desperation to get into
law school he makes a deal with the devil to make him the ideal
law school student in exchange for his soul. The devil has an
arrangement with a certain law school – Chicago, of course.
The subplot involves Dean Douglas Baird trying to find new and
exciting ways to boost the school's US News rankings – and
a student like Joe will just do the trick.
