This review stems from another post I’m writing that may or may not involve law school apps, and a certain search term, “law school,” in Google Play.
A law quiz game for the law student that lives in everyone. Hundreds of multiple choice questions to learn legal doctrine, vocabulary, and procedure, along with random legal trivia. The quicker you answer correctly, the more points you earn — and then compare yourself to others in the Dojo to see how you did. It is perfect for incoming 1Ls, to get a jump on all the law to learn.
Work smarter not harder!
Whether the app will help incoming 1Ls prep for law school, I don’t know, since many of the questions will be over any first year’s head. I must admit though, as a practicing attorney, this is a pretty fun quiz game. The app might even help some bar preppers quickly flash through terse terms and facts.
The splash screen shows a “lawyer ninja” (and you know I love ninjas) who will pose the questions. Swiping the screen will start your law knowledge challenge.
Suddenly, you’re thrown on the burner like a 1L in Civil Procedure trying to understand Pennoyer. The questions come hard and fast – okay, some aren’t so hard and you have a limited time to answer – and making a mistake makes you feel like a moron, especially on the “easy” ones.
You get 3 lives, then…
I don’t know how many questions there are, and there’s no single element of organization for the questions you are given. I can also guarantee you’re not going to be able to pass the bar exam with this app, nor any particular law school course, but if you want to challenge yourself, you’ll probably going to have some fun with this, at least for a little while.
