Innovative or Insulting, the Anime Torts Casebook
The ABA Journal is reporting that California Western law prof and assistant dean James Cooper wants to produce an animated casebook "to help make the law more accessible," explaining "I'd take the top 15 cases of tort law--famous cases in history--animate them and get them on the Web--YouTube."
Is this a new low in the perceived academic qualifications of Google generation law school students or an innovative use of digital publishing for law school education? According to the article, Cooper sketched his idea at a comic book convention. Perhaps he should check out using GoAnimate to cartoon 1L tort law doctrine. Could be fun. [JH]

if he does this, it would be like a non-fiction detective conan manga. its a very good idea as far as i think. teenagers would be more interested with this rather than reading cases word by word.

Hmm... That sounds interesting. But hey, if its anime, I'll watch it and it could help all anime watchers with learning stuff about laws and such. Keep us informed about this!?
