On occasions too numerous to link here, I have suggested the beneficial pedagogical use of song in the legal studies classroom. Perhaps the broadest support is included here. Or click on the tabs for law lessongs, law songs or music videos in the index on the left. Clearly, I am not the only educator thinking this way. Contracts professor Mark Petit at BU Law School has been a national news story for using songs in his class. ALSB colleague Robert Emerson at U of Florida uses costumes and theater to reach his students.
The Friday Law Music Video posts for the next several weeks will feature other examples of college professors making pedagogical use of songs in their classrooms. Perhaps, you will find encouragement to experiment with non-traditional but effective teaching methods.
