Pocket Law Firm is an iDevice app that is free. It comes to us from Sandra Day O’Connor’s iCivics program, which has a wonderful website that I have featured on this site. Pocket Law Firm is a game designed to teach about the Constitution. In the game, the user is in charge of a law firm, and must “match” the clients to the lawyers who can best fight for their rights. By earning points, the user can hire more lawyers, and buy ads and furniture for the firm. As lawyers win trials, they develop more experience, and can help with additional constitutional rights.
If you have a student who is interested in the law, or wants to learn more about our Constitution, this simulation will satisfy his or her quest for knowledge.
