Sticky Tricky Law
Bite-size learning takes on a new dimension here. What could be the smallest unit of teaching material that still retains powerful learning and memorising capabilities? Perhaps it's the humble Post-It™ note.
StickyTrickyLaw is an online legal education project, published on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. It aims to make complex legal concepts associated with Brexit, UK and EU law accessible to a wide audience through cartoons drawn on sticky notes, accompanied by simple explanations of the law.
Dr Joelle Grogan leads the StickyTrickyLaw project. An advocate for access to education and creative teaching, the project began with her doodling an explanation of the Article 50 Miller decision for friends with a pack of post-it notes.
Guest explanations are now written by experts in the field, who often enjoy the unexpectedly great challenge of explaining their life’s work in 50 (simple) words or fewer.
StickyTrickyLaw has explained a wide area of topics from the EU Single Market and Trade Barriers, to the European Arrest Warrant, Human Rights, and the UK-EU Withdrawal Agreement - with many more to come!
The cartoons are hand-drawn on 3”x3” yellow notes and a trusty 0.05mm pen (or – for really big lines – 0.3mm!) and inspired by cases and the latest developments in the law. Once created, the sticky notes are then photographed and cross-posted online.
The StickyTrickyLaw team warmly welcome guest contributors, or suggestions for what to explain next – you can contact them on social media or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
