[prMac.com] Philadelphia, PA - Aspen Publishers, part of Wolters Kluwer Law & Business and the leader in legal education study supplements, has partnered with Modality, the premier developer of learning and reference content for the Apple iPhone(R) and iPod touch(R), to transform the popular Law in a Flash study series into digital study resources for course and bar review.
"The typical law school workload leaves many students feeling they don't have time to study the material they have just read before moving onto the next topic," according to Steve Errick, Managing Director for Aspen Publishers Legal Education. "The new Law in a Flash mobile applications make it even easier for our customers to carry these trusted reference tools with them on-the-go, equipping them for anywhere, anytime review."
Each Law in a Flash subject series includes hundreds of cards designed for efficient review of numerous legal topics. Using the intuitive iPhone interface, the traditional flash card model has been reinvented to allow users to review questions or hypothetical situations on the front of each card then tap the screen to flip the card over, revealing additional details. Personal study notes may be entered for each card via the touch-screen keyboard. A "study set" feature enables students to bookmark and save cards requiring further review.
"Our iPhone and iPod touch applications give time-starved students an edge," said S. Mark Williams, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Modality. "We have heard from students in a variety of fields that the ability to carry trusted learning content on their favorite personal media devices has streamlined their study habits tremendously. We are excited to bring these same benefits to the legal education arena in partnership with Aspen Publishers."
Law in a Flash iPhone and iPod touch applications are now available for:
* Criminal Law
* Criminal Procedure
* Federal Income Tax
* Professional Responsibility
* Wills & Trusts
Additional titles in the series will be available by early 2009. Each Law in a Flash application retails for $39.99 (USD) to $59.99 in the Apple App Store. All of Modality's educational and professional reference products can be found on iTunes or by selecting the App Store button on an iPhone or iPod touch and searching for "Modality, Inc."
