New Student Ambassador ProgramWe have started a LegalED student ambassador program. This initiative is aimed towards partnering with law students to help provide feedback on our video collections. The students will help advertise our content through their study groups and social media. In exchange for working with us the students will be able to be a part of the growing community to improve legal education.



They will be invited to join our Linkedin group, have their names & pictures shared on the website as well as have an opportunity to apply to speak at our Igniting Law Conference.  If you know of law students who would be interested please pass along the application.


New YouTube Channel:

We have created a YouTube Channel to help share the videos from our Igniting Law Conference and partnership with FWD. Having the videos on YouTube as well as our website will help us share to a wider audience. If you have a YouTube account we encourage you to like our channel, comment on the videos and continuing sharing our links.

Video of the Month:

We will now start including the video of the month in our newsletter. The video will be chosen based on the amount of views and shares.

The video of the month will also be featured on the front page of our website.

This month’s winner is Jeremiah Ho, University of Mass. School of Law: “Not Your Father’s Case Method: Bringing Skills into Doctrinal Course”

Seeking Curators for Other Subject Areas:  We would like to continue curating video collections in other subject areas and are looking for teams of curators (think book editors) to form for other subject areas.  If you are interested in curating a collection of videos in your subject area, please let us know!
