Using Pop Culture References to Enliven Training

A Lawyerist article reports on judges who are using Star Trek references to make their decisions more accessible:

Justice Don Willett of the Supreme Court of Texas once observed: “A lot of legal writing, including judicial writing, is clunky and soul-crushingly dull. In my view, legal humor is not an oxymoron. The law, in fact, sometimes can be fun.”

Ethics training can also be fun. Further, fun training can be better training. We’ll be elaborating on this theme in future posts.
