Law Video Games Introduce Students to the Courts

John McClusky, Review of Two CD-ROM’s: Murder One and Drug Bust, 3(5) J. Crime Just. & Popular Culture 127, 127–28 (1995).

Law video games, such as Murder One and Drug Bust, are intended to introduce the player to the criminal courts.  These games may be helpful when used in an introductory law school course.   In Murder One, the player must present a case to a grand jury for an indictment. If the indictment is handed down, the player establishes a witness list and defends evidence against various pretrial motions made by the defense attorney.
