Australian Law Made Simple

An Australian law firm, WildeLegal, has posted a very original way to promote itself through some videos they call shenanigans which present basic legal concepts of Australian law. They do this in a very Australian way, using sporting backdrops (rock climbing, sailing, cross-country biking) as the members of the firm explain, for instance, the Australian court system, how to begin a lawsuit and how to respond to one. They have also posted examples of legal documents that correspond to what they describe in the videos (a statement of claim, a cross-claim...).
