TheFirstYear, putting 1L online & interactive

TheFirstYear is an online platform with 1L law content. Anyone can sign up to access it — watch the videos, and take quizzes once they are made available. The platform is sponsored by Univ. of Utah’s College of Law.

There are online classes for the standard law topics taught around the US in the first year of the law school. A few of them are populated now with content.

Within a topic, the user can watch a lecture & slideshow on specific topics. There is the option for quizzes & check-ins to be integrated later.

Many of the video slideshows have lots of visualizations, and simple designs, rather than text-heavy or outline-based visuals.

It’s great to see this project happening, and imagining how law could be learned in a more decentralized, interactive, & visual way. I can’t wait to see how this platform develops.
