"The Big Dzienkowski" is about an unpaid TLF pledge that leads to the confusion of two men, both named John Dzienkowski: one, the Dude, a lazy 4L, the other, the John S. Redditt Professor of State and Local Government. When TLF loansharks look to collect the pledge from the wrong Dzienkowski, the Dude is forced to survive a feminist vixen, his worthless friends, goose-stepping rhinelanders, a Gunner empowered by a stolen holy hornbook, and a library investigator hot on the trail of the selfsame book. In the end, it might all just make sense.

Assault & Flattery (A&F) is one of the largest student organizations at the Law School and its productions are a UT tradition. Each spring, A&F presents the school's annual musical comedy revue. 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.
