Today's Coffee Break idea comes from listener Matt, who writes: "On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, hundreds of law grads in Minnesota and across the U.S. will suffer through the Bar Exam, myself included. I would love a legal-themed coffee break."

As Matt goes on to describe in his email, there are a lot of songs that mention the law, lawyers and the justice system (e.g. judges, jail).

Best of luck to Matt and to all recent law-school graduates who are sitting their Bar Exams this week. And for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear that mention some aspect of the legal system? Send us your requests.
