Depending on your age bracket, this is either the coolest ever legal accoutrement or a sure sign that the profession is in steep decline. It's a new video game called "Objection!" that, according to this review in PC World, is a fun way for anyone and everyone - "professionals, law students, or anyone interested in the law" - to sharpen their courtroom skills. The kicker is that you may qualify for CLE credit in several states by claiming that playing this game - which is based on a mock murder trial - counts as "home study."
I wonder if a court will take into consideration your high score in "Objection!" when it rules on the ineffective assistance of counsel claim brought by your now-sitting-on-death-row former client?
