Eventually sometime is going to take a tool set like this and figure out how to build a game that simulates at least some of the American legal system. A simulated world with lots of property, contacts, torts, and legal issues and the courts to resolve the issues. Law students would engage each other at different levels to identify and pursue legal issues. Non-player characters would appear as judges, potential clients, and senior attorneys. It would be interesting.
