Keeping up with legal news and building subject area expertise are challenging for librarians, attorneys, professors, and students. ModioLegal works to make this easier. ModioLegal records legal news and provides access via a high-quality, proprietary platform that can be played back on devices such car audio systems, mobile or home devices. This service allows users to multitask by listening to current awareness content while commuting, traveling, exercising, or even grabbing lunch.
News content is recorded by law school students in a natural speaking voice to provide a higher level of comprehension than a computer-generated narration. Students also gain legal verbal communication practice and possible name recognition (student narrators provide their name, school and year of graduation at the beginning of each recording).
ModioLegal is currently negotiating agreements to add additional content and plans to expand its presence in academia by providing discounted access to law schools.
