Welcome to I've Got a Hit!

A wiki describing video clips, songs and print illustrations from pop culture that can be used in class to demonstrate research techniques or legal concepts

 

What? Why? What?

Three excellent questions, to paraphrase Buffy. When preparing for class, we've all occasionally found ourselves wanting to throw in a little something which illustrates that lecture's core concept -- a brief example that will stick in the students' minds or relieve the monotony of a 75-minute lecture. But trying to find the right one isn't always easy. Then again, our own law professors did it; our colleagues do it from time to time too. Why not harness the hive mind and ask everyone to contribute ideas?

 

So, here we are. I've Got a Hit! is a place to collect all these examples together. If you're looking for a good illustration, visit the wiki, read through the descriptions given and voila! You've got a song to play or a clip or comic to show in class. This wiki was started by a law librarian, so the main focus here is pieces illustrating general or legal research techniques, but feel free to add scenes showing other legal concepts as well.

 

This wiki is starting out small, so if you know of examples you think should be added to the site, please feel free to do so. Just request editing access and get started. If you have any questions, contact administrator Deborah Schander.

 

P.S. Wondering about the site's title? Wonder no more.

Has anyone come across the video of elmo testifying before congress? Try as I might to find it, I am having no luck.
