More lawyer-magicians: Bill Evans, current President of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, and David Cohen of Reed Smith. Check out Mr. Cohen's videos: he uses magic to explain some discovery issues and other interesting issues that arise in legal practice today.
We could say that Mr. Cohen's use of magic to illustrate his points is just so much eye candy. But I think what he does here is first to get our attention, which is immensely valuable, and second, make his comments memorable, whie is even more valuable. Third, his illusions actually relate to his message. Using the red sponge bolls in the Key Discovery video to tie the message to the notion of RED (records and e-discovery) is clever, and it makes people remember the service. Makig the red sponge balls appear in his lovely assistant's hand and saying that it's like having two lawyers for the price of one brings home the idea that e-discovery is a valuable service (and worth the extra money). Clever and convincing for the client. i like it!
