Moot This Mock That: Law Students Share Courtroom Simulations via Live Academic Webcasts

by Nicole Wise on July 9, 2012

Students in Ag Business Law at North Carolina State University are turning their mock trials into something akin to “Judge Judy.” And thanks to academic webcasting with Mediasite, the public can watch their dramatic courtroom productions about fictitious cases. 

The webcasts they’re making are not only educational but pretty darn entertaining, too. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Browse through the course’s webcast catalog. How can you not be intrigued by “The Case of the Cheatin’ Chocolatier” about a sales clerk accused of embezzling chocolate from a candy store? 

The school is using live academic webcasting to share what its students are doing with the world, while at the same time providing them a fun way to learn the law and critique their courtroom performances. 

North Carolina University is just one example of a school using Mediasite to stream mock trials and moot courts. These are some of the schools we’ve seen using Mediasite webcasting services to stream courtroom simulations or legal discussion to the public.
