A large white poodle sits in a red chair with one paw on an open book, besides which is a pot of ink and a quill. To the left of the poodle is a Yorkshire Terrier.

This is a copy of the principal figure in 'Laying down the Law', otherwise known as 'Trial by Jury', exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1840 and now in the Devonshire Collection at Chatsworth, Derbyshire. The painting was a satire on the workings of the Court of Chancery.
