Transactional Simulation Website Expanded with Free Online Courses

IAALS Intern

LawMeets, a website that provides law students with free transactional simulations, is now offering free transactional law courses which can be used by individual students or incorporated into law school classes.  These online courses will combine lectures and simulations to teach law students the nuts-and-bolts of business transactions.

LawMeets' two week inaugural class, Basics of Acquisition Agreements, is scheduled to begin October 23 and will be taught by Karl Okamoto, founder of LawMeets and Drexel University Earle Mack School of Law professor; DLA Piper partner Jay Finkelstein; University of California, Davis School of Law professor Afra Afsharipour; and Cornell Law School professor Charles Whitehead. Though sixty participates from around the world have already signed up, LawMeets' online platform has the capacity to support thousands of users.
