You Can't Handle the Truth: Using Pop Culture to Teach Legal ResearchInstitute For Law Teaching & Learning (2011)
AbstractI’m Just a Bill. Marcia Clark being schooled during the OJ trial for not Shepardizing. Pop culture is full of examples of legal research. Speakers will provide examples and demonstrate best practices for integrating video clips, songs, comics and other pop culture references into your legal research lesson. This session will address how using pop culture and humor can humanize teachers to students, encourage student participation in what many see as a “boring” class, foster collaboration among instructors and be an effective tool for peer instruction. Speakers will also discuss avoiding dangers of using this technique in the classroom.
