"The Office" Teaches Employment Law Lessons

Julie Elgar, of Atlanta's Ford & Harrison, has found a good way to may a blog about employment law more fun: she ties it to "The Office." Each Friday morning, "that's what she said" uses the previous night's episode as a starting point for a discussion of legal issues. A neat tag assigns a "Litigation Value" to the episode's central event -- e.g., estimating that Oscar's potential claim for sexual orientation discrimination might be worth $450,000.

For more about the blog's backstory -- why the firm thinks it's a good idea and how it used it as a marketing tool -- see Must-Sue TV Show Breeds Must-See Blawg, Marketing the Law Firm Newsletter (, April 11, 2007.
