Lawyer and legal cartoonist Paul Brennan has created the world's first legal cartoon application for iPhones and iPads.

Available in about two week's time, Brennan has spent the last two months creating an application which will enable users to download and share comic cartoons he created which appear in his blog "101 reasons to kill all the lawyers". Having started drawing cartoons back in 1987, Brennan's work has appeared in Lawyers Weekly, the Australian Financial Review and the Queensland Law Society magazine, Proctor.

"[There will be] 24 different cartoons you can share via email and MMS and also upload onto Facebook," Brennan explained.

The legal cartoonist described how there are so many different types of lawyers and that he hopes to make more applications representing each type of lawyer within each sector of the legal industry.

"You can imagine how many lawyers there are in the world and a lot of lawyers now days are specialised, for example, they see themselves as property lawyers," he said.

Explaining how his legal cartoons will translate worldwide, Brennan said: "Lawyers have the same jokes, their issues are the same and lawyers make the same mistakes."

"This [first application] is going to be like the classic app, then I want to do apps of 24 cartoons at a time for each different sector, so there will be a property app, a litigation lawyer app..."

Brennan said the application will cost $1.19 but he will offer it for free, temporarily, after it debuts on iTunes.
