Practical Teaching in 3D: Virtual Mock Trials


This article describes the results of implementing metaverses as teaching tools in the academic field of law. It is based upon a pedagogical activity that was made possible by the use of a virtual reality court session developed in Second Life. Our approach to virtual law practice combined the following set of activities: (1) legal analysis through discussion forums, as a required pre-trial activity. This initial task was implemented trough the asynchronous learning platform Moodle (Aula Judicial); (2) collaborative work through Google Docs as to prepare all the relevant legal paperwork (claim, statement of defense, judicial proceedings); (3) synchronous inmersion in a Second Life trial experience.
