Chevron Two-Step

Printer Friendly Version

Some people study using note cards and outlines. Lewie Briggs ’15 uses song and dance. While a 1L in Professor Adam Cox’s course on Legislation and the Regulatory State, Briggs came up with a rap song about Chevron’s two-step analysis, based on the Supreme Court’s 1984 decision in Chevron USA v. Natural Resources Defense Council. The lyrics, Briggs notes, were actually helpful in studying for exams. This year Briggs developed a dance for the song and recruited fellow students to film a music video. The result? A viral video that earned praise from Above the Law and administrative law professors at NYU and beyond.
