The LawMeets platform offers online courses to anyone, and they can be adopted in whole or modeled by professors. A recent program on mergers and acquisitions drew 800 students from 75 different law schools, plus associates at two BigLaw firms and others from the Law Library of Congress. Mystyc Metrik, a 3L at Cornell Law School, found the M&A class she took “really excellent.” “Law school is a very individualized setting where you are rarely privy to the work of others,” Metrik says, “so getting the chance to actually see some of your peers’ work is really beneficial.” So far, 38 faculty members across the country have used LawMeets exercises, and profs at 48 schools asked to test some after Okamoto presented the model to the Association of American Law Schools last year.
