Law Songs


Below is a list of law related songs that can be used to enhance your teaching and add some fun to lessons. I use them in a number of ways - either as a background accompaniment to activities like the gallery (you can even build in a bonus mark for anyone identifying the tracks - although don't let this become the main focus of the activity), or as background music to some of the other student centered activities like Learning on Behalf of Others (LOBO) etc. 

I have a set of these tracks on CD and on ITunes on my work PC - both work.
