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 the CWSL Student Lab Website, and the ‘maps for that’ website.


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.
