|CWSL has contracted with Mindjet to give members of the CWSL community *free* personal copies of MindManager Mind-Mapping software. New versions of the software have just been released. (Current users scroll down to links below to get a copy; new users, read on for more information.)
What is a mind-map? A mind-map is a visual representation of relationships between concepts, words and ideas (the graphic below is an example). Attorneys can use them in a number of ways, as can law students. One of the most useful applications for law students is in creating visual outlines of complex legal concepts that are covered in classes. For more information, see the link on the CWSL Student Lab Website. This link will direct you to tutorials on Mindjet, as well as templates and sample maps.
Want to try the program before downloading? MindManager is installed on computers in the 290 building student lab, and will be in the 350 building lab later this term.
Will training be offered at CWSL? We plan to offer on campus training for students during October. Watch your email and this blog for details.
How do I get a copy of the latest version of MindManager?
