There's so much to see and do here at the #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. There may be a quiz. We hope you enjoy our inner sanctum and take a moment, if you like, and drop us a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dean of the bountiful #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) Gregarious Gus orchestrates the everyday activities at the #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.). Why does he do this? Because he IS the one and only #BarnyardLawyer himself.
Associate Dean Miss Penny Lane is the student advocate at the prestigious #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.). She functions as the sounding board for Dean Gus when the Still in his office is down for maintenance.
Co-Administrators Maverick & Angel Charlie, those Top Gun Kitties, keep things running around the stratospheric #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.). Using their engineering skills and vast experience as hotshot flyers they ensure the Still in Dean Gus' office is always in good working order. They also run things when Dean Gus is not around, and sometimes when he is.
Senior Professor Emeritus Angel Bella Basset is the top institutional instructor at the fabled #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.). Students beware - Angel Bella does not grade on a curve. She does, however, make her classes extremely interesting and instructive. If you happen to fall asleep during one of Angel Bella's classes, there will be consequences.
Chief of Security Sergeant Bakon maintains Law and Order, with apologies to Briscoe and Greene. Sgt. Bakon keeps track of demerit slips and oversees detention hall. His main responsibilities seem to be keeping those two @TopGunKItties out of mischief. Good luck with that.
Chief of Investigative Services Angel Kohori is one of the most versatile staff members at the palatial #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.). Code Name: Horus, Angel Kohori seeks out and obtains the answers before anyone even knows what the questions may be. She is every bit the equal of those storied doggie detectives Asta (companion to Nick and Nora Charles) and Scooby Doo himself.
The #BarnyardLawyer himself and The Lawyer Lady herself.
School of Imitation Law Royalty.
The #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) Professor of Video Journalism Rosie is a seasoned professional. She is the ace field reporter for #AnimalMusings. When Rosie is not writing children's books, she is also the on-screen host of The Rosie Show, televised worldwide on The Animal Musings YouTube Channel,
In her spare time, Rosie is the proprietor of Rosie's Coffee Bar, the campus hangout when students are not in class or even when they are supposed to be in class.
Rosie resides with Miss Keil, who is also known far and wide as the Lawyer Lady.
The #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) Professor of Elocution Angel Honor is a relative newcomer to the field.
Angel Honor, however, does have a fabulous background. It only took reading two of Angel Honor's eloquent essays for the S.O.I.L. Board of Regents to select Honor to fill this exalted position.
Coincidentally, Angel Honor resided with Miss Keil, known as the Lawyer Lady.
The #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) Professor of Equine Etiquette Angel Red is the senior statesman of the group. Angel Red has many years of experience riding herd on his pasture mates and having them hoof the line. As a retired champion racehorse, Angel Red is well aware of the various traditions and protocols.
Also, coincidentally, Angel Red resides with Miss Keil aka the Lawyer Lady.
Footnote from @TopGunKitties: Coincidence our collective arse.
The #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) Professor of Cultural Affairs, the esteemed and Honorable Lord Winston, is of royal lineage, having ties to the illustrious gone but not forgotten Toddy Furington.
And did we mention that the Honorable Lord Winston is in residence with - wait for it - the Lawyer Lady herself. Geez, the @TopGunKitties are going to have a field day with this one. Let's not tell them.
The #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) Moot Court Training Director Tater Tot has been selected from a plethora of applicants.
One of the items that put him over the top in the interview was the fact that he does NOT reside with Miss Keil aka the Lawyer Lady.
The #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) welcomes Lexa, our first Intern.
Lexa has an excellent pedigree, one which you be hearing about in the near future.
Note to Sgt. Bakon. It is up to you to keep young Lexa away from those two @TopGunKitties and the Still that is NOT in the office of Dean Gus.
Here you will find an excellent overview of Faber College, oops, of course we actually meant the extremely prestigious #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law.
As can be seen, the Student Union is where most everything happens, whether we want it to or not. We are proud to share that the Student Union has not been investigated by the Health Department in a number of weeks. Quite an accomplishment, all things considered.
SCHOOL MOTTO: "We make Faber College look like Harvard"
SCHOOL FIGHT SONG: "Send in the Clowns"
SCHOOL CHANT: "To-o-ga" "To-o-o-ga" "T-O-O-O-GA"
NOTE: We rip off none but the best, as you can plainly see.
Rosie's Coffee Bar is the inspiration for Rick's Cafe Americain, which was featured in the stage play Everyone Comes To Rick's. The play, in turn, was the instrument on which the cult favorite movie Casablanca was based. Here's looking at you kid.
Much more about Rosie in The Rosie Show on The Animal Musings YouTube Channel.
The Scott "Scribe" Blystone Memorial Reference Library at the #BarnyardLaw School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) is dedicated to Miss Olivia's Dad @oliviackcs. The library is modeled very closely after the George Peabody Library, which is part of Johns Hopkins University. There, that should take care of the copyright paranoia of one of our staffers. They do mean well.
FINALLY, IT IS HERE!
By popular demand, Gus's new book, ‘The Barnyard Lawyer’, is out. Meet new friends Angelina, Bucanan, General Jackie, Pony Boy, and Zsa Zsa. Plus the bombastic Barn Cats. The Lawyer Lady may also appear.

Gregarious Gus, Dean of The #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.), has a full complement of competent assistants, when he can remember exactly who they are and exactly where they are on campus. Assuming of course that they actually are on campus.
Every once in a while, our students can pull themselves away from their outside activities. Then Dean Gus is actually able to conduct a class or two. He does try to set the, sometimes, high standard for our Adjunct Professors
The promo to the left gives an overview as to what you can expect at the #Barnyard Lawyer School of Imitation Law.
The #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law School (S.O.I.L.) strives to be as orderly and organized as possible. To give our students the best experience possible, we maintain a state of the art seating chart, which is scientifically programmed for maximum efficiency.
All seating positions are final unless the seating monitor, Sergeant Bakon, receives enough incentive from the plaintiff to warrant his efforts to adjust. Then maybe he will think about it. So do not delay - make Sergeant Bakon an offer today. Well, what are you waiting for? NOTE: The seating chart is in the process of being updated. We are so very behind with this project.
It was a full house when Dean Gus was conducting the very first Moot Court of the semester, under the close supervision of our Moot Court Training Director Tater Tot, of course.
Ever wonder how we test the Senior Classes' powers of observation? Well wonder no more.
View the exalted graduates of The #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law, Just to the left.
The #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) uses the very finest textbooks that are available. Of course, sometimes our choices are limited, actually extremely limited, as you can see..
The students at the #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) are among the best and the brightest. This is due to them constantly being challenged with intellectual Midweek Mystery Melodramas such as this one to the right. One of the classic, i.e. most convoluted, and most discussed of the #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) Case Studies. A true student body favorite.
The students at the #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) are equal to the challenge, almost always. As can be seen from the Midweek Mystery Melodrama solution to the left, there are answers and then there are answers.
Two of our more ambitious former students (those rambunctious @TopGunKitties Maverick and Charlie, but who is keeping track) took it upon themselves to use their engineering skills to construct a working and very productive Still in Dean Gus's office at the #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.). Now THAT is a project worth mentioning. TRY TO TOP THIS. Go ahead, give it a try if you are that bored.
As talented as the #BarnyardLawyer is, he cannot do it all on his own. Occasionally he must call upon one or more of his colleagues for assistance on special projects. One example is when he needs an aerial survey of the #BarnyardLawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.). In that instance he will call upon the services of those hotshot flyers, the @TopGunKitties. Yes, the Still builders themselves. Sometimes he cannot be picky.
Running the #Barnyard Lawyer School of Imitation Law (S.O.I.L.) is a complicated and strenuous task indeed. Occasionally the Board of Regents will vote to award Dean Gus a bonus or two, such as the items shown to the left. To which Gus usually replies "Wrap it up and don't drop it".
This is where THE #BARNYARDLAWYER SCHOOL OF IMITATION LAW S.O.I.L. INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED GLEE CLUB puts together their various musical routines and then practices until they are absolutely perfect. The building is totally soundproof for the protection of the rest of the Campus.
Sung to the tune of HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN
There is a Barn in Ocala Town, they call The Setting Sun
And it has been the ruin of many a poor mini, I know as I am one
Now mares, don’t let your young ones do as I have done
Spend their life in fun and frolicking in the Barn of The Setting Sun
Sung to the tune of WHISTLE WHILE YOU WORK
Hi Ho, Hi Ho
It’s off to class I go
With a bushel of oats
And lots of hopes
Hi Ho, Hi Ho
Sung to the tune of MARY LOU, if you have not guessed that by now
Hello Mary Lou, goodbye hay
She grabbed the bale and rode off on the Bay
I knew Mary Lou, I loved my hay
So hello Mary Lou, goodbye hay
Sung to the tune of SUMMER IN THE CITY, ditto
Hot time, Summer in the city
Back of my mane getting dirty & gritty
Big Boys feeling really kind of frisky,
Getting to be we are downright giddy
Sung to the tune of WHITE RABBIT
Some hay makes you larger
Some hay makes you small
The oats that they'd rather give you
Don't do anything at all
Just ask me, when I'm 10 hands tall
Sung to tune of CAMPTOWN RACES
Well, I came down there with my briefcase full, doodah, doodah
Oh I'll go back home knowing lots of bull, oh doo-dah day
Going to sue all night, going to sue all day
I'll spend my money on a bag of oats, somebody pass me the hay
Well, the #BarnYardLaywer sings this song, doodah, doodah
Ah the Chitown Courthouse's five blocks long oh doodah day
Going to sue all night, going to sue all day
I'll spend my money on a bag of oats, somebody pass me the hay
Sung to the tune of - this time YOU figure it out
Zippidee do dah, Zippidee ay
My oh my what a great Saturday
Plenty of sunshine coming my way
Some would rather have it made
But not me, I'll be in the shade
Dean Gus has not yet moved into his new digs as we are still putting in the finishing touches.
Although we do not have a 360 view of the office suit, there is a conference room off through the left side of the desk. In fact, the door to it is right behind where the photographer was standing.
Note that the long rumored Still is deliberately out of camera range.
