Quoting from online exchanges with his students, the author explains and illustrates how he uses case-related limericks to supplement classroom instruction in his first-year Contracts course. His TWEN discussion forum, dubbed “Poetic Justice,” encourages students to get turned on to the poetic side of contract law as they attempt to formulate legal rules derived from leading cases.
