Through technology and the direct application of legal skills, we are educating the next generation of lawyers.
New challenges mean new approaches, many of which involve technology.
The Center for Legal Innovation is dedicated to helping create a future where innovation and entrepreneurial energy redefine legal education, the practice of law, and law itself. Through the collaborative efforts of faculty, students, practitioners and industry experts, our current projects include researching ways to standardize contracts, transform legal education through distance learning, and create transparency in financial transactions. We provide both a scholarly and practical environment for an exploration of what law is and a platform to influence what law will be.
GAME ON! Educational Games for Law Students
JeannETTe Eicks, CLI CO-Director
"Evidence Challenge" is an educational game published by Jeannette Eicks and LexisNexis in 2014. The program is an interactive web-based exam prep and assessment tool that helps law students prepare for exams by providing a simulated courtroom experience. Jeannette recently presented a TEDx style talk on educational games for students at the LegalED conference on Igniting Law Teaching.
