Building off information gathered from a RIPS sponsored program at the 2009 Annual Meeting, Sallie Smith, cataloging/systems librarian at the University of Pittsburgh Barco Law Library, put together this terrific illustration of non-traditional instruction. Below are pictures of her library display, along with her descriptions of two individual sections.

Using Comics and Graphic Literature to Illustrate Legal Concepts

“Ownership Rights – shows the Captain Marvel and Superman copyright battle in National Comics Publications v. Fawcett Publications (191 F.2d 594), and Judge Posner’s description of Spawn in Gaiman v. McFarlane (360 F.3d 644).”

“The Court System – displays the Justice Case Files graphic novel series from The National Center for State Courts, demonstrating that comics are gaining credibility in education as people turn a more critical eye the messages they convey.”
