Our colleague, Scott Chamberlain has developed ANU Legal Role Play Software (ANULRP) , which is now in the pilot stage and ready for people to trial in their courses.

The software allows teachers to turn legal matters into automated simulations for their students. It makes the tasks more realistic and engaging, while significantly reducing course administration and assessment commitments.

Scott will demonstrate:

  • how simulations can be created without any programming knowledge;
  • how the simulations can be used for single student exercises to step students through a simulated legal process, like bankruptcy or conveyancing;
  • how the simulations can be used in multi-player games where students are lawyers representing clients on opposite sides of a matter, like unfair dismissals or business sales.
  • how the simulations can be used to embed ethical issues and choices into the simulations.

All welcome, lunch will be served from 12.45pm.
