Call For Participation: A Survey on Uses of Popular Culture In Legal Education

Professor Cynthia Bond of the John Marshall Law School (Chicago) is conducting a survey of legal educators to determine uses of popular culture in the law school classroom. She's requesting assistance; here's her message to you. Something interesting and different to do among all those bouts of research in the library, revisions of syllabi, and trips to the faculty lounge for coffee!

Greetings Law Prof. Colleagues:

I hope your semester is winding down well.

I am working on an article this summer on uses of popular culture in the law school classroom.  I am defining popular culture broadly to include mass culture texts like movies, TV shows, popular music, images which circulate on the internet, etc, and also any current events that you may reference in the classroom which are not purely legal in nature (i.e. not simply a recent court decision).

To support this article, I am doing a very unscientific survey to get a sense of what law professors are doing in this area.  If you are a law professor and you use popular culture in your class, I would be most grateful if you could answer this quick, anonymous survey I have put together:

Thanks in advance for your time and have a wonderful summer!
