Legal education pedagogy is transforming rapidly. These simulations bring traditional torts casebooks alive in challenging and empowering ways; bring greater clarity and mastery to tort law concepts; and bridge the study of law into the dynamic practice of law. Using modern simulations representing clients in core “bread and butter” lawyering tasks, students apply their casebook rules to conduct discovery, advise clients, correspond with counsel, draft pleadings, calculate damages, and argue motions. Students move beyond the repetition of appellate cases, incorporating statutes and using secondary sources and practitioner tools to save valuable time and resources. While emphasizing substantive tort law mastery, the simulations further demonstrate how law practice seamlessly connects procedure, substance, and skills.
