Margaret Hagan is a lawyer who came up with the idea for Law Dojo back when she was a law student at Stanford. She built the first live version during her third year of law school, as a one-woman operation. Now, that rough-and-ready first version of the app is getting cleaned up and lots of new features, and the team has grown to make that happen.
Margaret started out drawing out all her law school notes into comic flowcharts and cartoon illustrations — and then in the summer of her 2L year, she started coding little law quizzes for herself, to study for her classes better.
After she published a few law school-specific quizzes, Margaret started building law games for all the non-law students in the world who also find law fascinating, bizarre & empowering. No matter how text-heavy, jargony & cold law can be, there are surprising numbers of secret Law Aficionados out there — who like a good logic challenge & want to build their legal muscles.
The philosophy of Law Dojo starts from there:
Law can be fun. Everyone can build legal muscles. This will be great.
