Innovation: The Path to Becoming a Better Lawyer (Part II)

Posted by Library Blog on 10/09/2015 at 08:36 AM

On Friday, October 2, the RWU Law Library hosted the Law Librarians of New England (LLNE) Fall Meeting. The theme was Successfully Supporting & Igniting Innovation and the meeting was a great success. We gathered with law librarians all over New England and discussed innovations in law, in libraries, in legal education, in legal practice, and in organizational culture.

The event’s plenary speaker was Stanford’s Margaret Hagan who dazzled us with her insights about promoting and supporting innovation. In preparing for the event, one of the librarians downloaded and tried out one of Hagan’s apps, Law Dojo.

Law Dojo is a family of legal games to help you learn law:

  • Open Dojo is a free general law trivia game.
  • Know Your Rights is a free game which helps users learn their rights when dealing with the police, FBI, and immigration agents.
  • Supreme Court Dojo is also free and is one of the more difficult games. It tests players on famous SCOTUS cases.

In addition to the free content, there are several games for purchase which may be particularly useful to law students. For example, there are:

  • Criminal Law Dojo
  • Civ Pro Dojo
  • Income Tax Law Dojo
  • MPRE Dojo.

If you like learning the law in game form, also check out Lexis’ Think Like a Lawyer or Cali’s Supreme Court Justice Game.
