TRU Law Students Put Coursework Online with Wikis

Written on Friday, July 18th, 2014

Thompson Rivers University law students are sharing the fruit of their academic labour in a novel way: by creating simple, collaboratively-built websites called wikis.

According to an article on TRU's website, Where Education Meets the Internet, faculty are encouraged to "create course projects that put student work online, outside the boundaries of web-based learning management systems like Blackboard or Moodle, accessible to anyone with an Internet connection."

Law prof Margaret Hall has built her Legal Perspectives course around this concept. Students "work online in group to analyze a legal case from the perspective of each of the legal philosophies she covers in the course. Working on a wiki—a collaborative, easily edited and structured website—means all students can view one another’s work as well as the contributions of past students."

Check out wikis on some well-known SCC cases originating from BC, created by TRU law students as part of the Legal Perspectives course:

Supreme Court Invites Comments on Audio Recording of IMEs

Written on Monday, July 14th, 2014

The Supreme Court of BC's Rules Revision Committee invites members of the profession to comment on a proposed change related to independent medical examinations.

The Trial Lawyers Association of BC has proposed amending Rule 7-6 to allow medical examinations under this section to be audio recorded. 

The TLABC asserts that "the primary reason for allowing the recording of IME’s is substantive –
it enhances the court’s access to the truth. The more that is known about the IME process, the better able the trier of fact is to assess the expert’s opinion."

See the invitation to comment, along with the TLABC's submission, at the Supreme Court website. The deadline for comments is October 31, 2014.
