Cartoon Contracts: Episode I

Inspired by this, I’ve decided to supplement my teaching in Contracts this semester by making a series of cartoons about the class, about the Socratic method, and about law school in general.  Xtranormal (free) makes it pretty easy to make such movies badly – I’m hoping that I will gain technical sophistication over time, and perhaps even make cartoons that move.  In any event, you might find it interesting, especially if you use the Barnett casebook, which the videos are geared to.  Here’s the first one. It’s about public policy, Fuller and Perdue, and the purposes of socratic teaching.  I’ll post more as they come online:

  1. Cool. I especially like the use of “assumpsit.”

    My advice is to embrace the seemingly “bad” features of Xtranormal. Doctors, for example, have created some hilarious videos about drug-seeking patients. For some reason, the flat affect of the Xtranormal voices makes the histrionic complaints of severe pain all the funnier.

    Fun stuff! And the website actually isn’t difficult to use at all. Since I also use the Barnett book, maybe we could collaborate on coming up with some scripts. Cheers, Miriam
