I've persuaded my husband to go see the latest Harry Potter movie with me this afternoon, so pardon me for having Harry on the brain (and no, I haven't read the last book yet; I was traveling all summer, so I had my copy mailed to my son and daughter-in-law; I won't get it until I drive to Chicago to visit them next month). But I know a lot of you have thought about ways to bring a little wizardry into your classes this fall. Here are a couple of things you might enjoy:
U. of Memphis Professor Andrew McClurg's website of legal humor, which is presently displaying a column he wrote for the ABA Journal a few years ago: Hogwarts Torts (hurry to read this one, as he rotates the content every month).
Rugers's Prof. Ruth Anne Robbins' article, Harry Potter, Ruby Slippers and Merlin: Telling the Client's Story Using the Characters and Paradigm of the Archetypal Hero's Journey, 29 Seattle U. L. Rev. 767 (2006).
