The LawMeets website has begun to offer law students simulated online opportunities to act as transactional attorneys and receive feedback on their efforts.
According to an article in the National Law Journal, students can participate in a series of "mini-meets" at no cost. Each of these online competitions involves a business scenario in which a client needs advice. Students watch client interview videos online, then submit videos of themselves advising the client. After the videos are posted on the site, students review the other submissions and vote on which they think are best. Those are critiqued by a panel of experts, who offer comments and advice. A new scenario is posted every 2 weeks.
The site is still in the pilot phase and is being funded through a grant from the National Science Foundation.
