Game Groups > Theme: Law practice
Games focusing on the legal professions (attorneys, judges, etc.) with varying degrees of realism. A substantial portion of gameplay should take place within the scope of procedural law (e.g. a courtroom, with the player taking the role of the state by prosecuting criminals or acting as private legal representation), including legal proceedings not related to procedural law/courtroom proceedings (e.g. legal mediator between two or more parties).
The player may be identified as a practitioner of law (or directly connected with one) or a legal entity dealing with legal representation (e.g. law firm). Either which, the process of preparing a case should be clearly identifiable as well as procedures commonly identified in case preparation (e.g. case briefs, evidence gathering, etc.)
Not to be confused with the Law Enforcement game group, though the game may still qualify.
Certain games may include courtroom sessions during gameplay. However, if the player is not identifiable as a practitioner of law nor the process of case preparation clearly evident as an integral part of the gameplay, these games (such as Neverwinter Nights 2) should be excluded from this game group.
