Assault and Flattery (A&F) is one of the largest student organizations at the law school and its productions have been a UT tradition for close to 50 years. Each spring, A&F presents the school's annual musical comedy revue as part of Law Week. Usually based on a popular film or Broadway musical, the show embraces and satirizes all aspects of the legal professions--students, faculty members, and the law itself. The production is written, directed, designed, and choreographed by law students and features live performances by student and faculty actors, singers, dancers, and musicians.
