From the Hartford Courant:

[L]egal aid lawyers in Connecticut and NuLawLab of Boston’s Northeastern University School of Law hope creating a video law game that puts litigants before a virtual judge will help the increasing numbers of people representing themselves in civil legal proceedings throughout the state and nation.

Seems worth a try, actually. It’s easy to give someone a script, but it’s really hard to teach them how to respond to questions. A simulation might do a better job of preparing pro se parties to stand in front of a judge.
