NEW YORK, Aug. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Practising Law Institute (PLI) received the Award for Outstanding Achievement in Technology at this week's Association for Continuing Legal Education (ACLEA) meeting in Seattle. Dr. JC Kinnamon, Director of the Office of Research and Development at PLI, accepted the award at the ACLEA award ceremony on August 2nd. This is the second consecutive year that PLI has earned the top technology award.
The award was given in recognition of PLI's Internal Investigation Game, an immersive online experience that challenges attorneys to plan and conduct an internal investigation as members of a fictional law firm. Developed in a partnership with &ranj, a Dutch serious gaming company, the Internal Investigation Game challenges players to perfect a variety of legal skills, including planning and conducting witness interviews, fact gathering and reporting findings to company management.
The Internal Investigation Game is now available free On-Demand as part of PLI's Interactive Learning Center, a growing library of online interactive courses. PLI is working on a follow-up game that helps lawyers work with financial statements and is slated for release later in 2016.
