The University of Westminster in Britain is teaching its law students about cases by immersing them in the scenario. But while typical law schools immerse students in cases with copious amounts of readings, the University of Westminster has taken a more futuristic approach by teaching case studies through the use of a VR experience.

Entitled 'REal and Virtual Reality Law,' or REVRLaw, the program creates VR experiences for one of the university's classic case studies through the VR Unity engine. In the case, two brothers who are shooting a film encounter financial difficulties, and one of the brothers ends up dead. The goal of the virtual case study is to decide whether or not the surviving brother is guilty of murder under the law.
