    Student video drawing national attention from legal community

    When third-year law student Andrew Black decided to make a video that provided tongue-in-cheek job interview tips for his peers entering the law firm recruitment process, he didn’t anticipate just how hot a commodity he had on his hands.

    Now a video of his song , "Tell Them They're Your 1st Choice (even if they're not)," is gaining attention from Canada's legal community. A plug in the Legal Post blog for the
    Financial Post has led to the video being posted on the Maclean's magazine Web site and an interview for Canadian Lawyer.

    "The response has been overwhelmingly positive," Black says. "We didn't anticipate it would be this big."

    He produced the video with help from some friends, including a number of Windsor Law students. The music and post-production was all done on a laptop, but in
    his Legal Post shout-out, Mitch Kowalski calls it "slick, professional, funny and informative."

    Dean of Law Bruce Elman noted that while the law school counsels students not to misrepresent their level of interest in a firm, this project is entertaining, not instructional.

    "I found it to be quite creative," he said.
