Law Songs For The Law Classroom

This video is one of a series from a company called "Manpower." The company apparently does consulting work in Human Resources. What I like about their approach (and how it relates to law) is that they adopt the attitude that getting sued (or suing) is undesirable. I tell my students that the most important principle that they can learn in a Business Law class is how to avoid conflicts in court. Too many students (and businesspeople) have been indoctrinated into thinking that court is a place to go to obtain a just resolution of a dispute. Therefore, they become sloppy and imprecise in their business dealings thinking that the court will bail them out in a serious dispute. Then after encountering the expense, stress and imperfection of the court system, they rail against "the lawyers." Once again, legal legitimacy takes a hit.

This song is just a fun way to remind students that there is value in conducting business so as to avoid litigation. For some other songs that may be helpful in the classroom see my "Law Lessongs."
