The Lawtunes: Live At Blackacre

Brought to you by the band that gave us the classic albums "Merry Lexmas From The Lawtunes," "Legal Holidaze," and "The Lawyer's Holiday Humor Album," the new LawTunes CD is a broader take on the law, lawyers, and legal practice through ten original rock-and-roll tunes in an album not limited by content or style to any particular season. It even includes a few "love songs," although expressed in the language of an attorney.


Premised as a "live" concert at "Blackacre," the legendary parcel of land so often referenced in eternally-painful law school examination questions and scholarly legal treatises/articles, the new album includes:


"(She's An) Electronic Discovery”

There's probably no "hotter" topic in the law today than the review and production in litigation of e-mail and other electronic documents. But that context and its developing terminology (including data accessibility, preservation, spoliation, retention policies,

metadata, embedded images, the recent Federal Rules of Civil Procedure amendments, and the leading Zubulake line of cases) are appropriated with gusto to tell the tale of a lawyer falling in virtual love.


"Lawyers' Blood Is Typo"

A lawyer is called upon after-hours (assuming there is such a thing anymore) to provide guidance to a "client" seeking a reliable life partner, and explains why he is qualified to do so.


"Della Street"

A tribute to the most famous of legal secretaries, in a style appropriate to when "Perry Mason" first aired.



A hard-pounding and blunt explanation of exactly what it is that lawyers do.


"Orderin' In"

The pleasures of working late and eating at your desk. To the extent there are any, this song extols them.


"Cadillac Cab"

The big-city law firm/corporate perk with double-edges, as detailed herein.


"Little Bluebook"

A lawyer frustrated in love desperately seeks guidance from the legal citation style manual, invoking a generous helping of the jargon of that treatise.


"Livin' Life In Six Minutes"

A new acoustic version of a popular Lawtunes song lamenting the reduction of legal practice (and life) to billing increments of tenths of an hour.


"Everywhere There Is A Client"

As close to an anthem for lawyers as there is, explaining some of why lawyers do what they do.


"Santa's G.C."

Well, old habits die hard. The album concludes with this whimsical tale about a lawyer who goes in-house to become General Counsel at Santa, Inc.
