You Too Can Check Out Quimbee

July 30th, 2018 / By

Since I posted about Quimbee, several colleagues have asked if there are ways to check out this new study aid. That’s easy: just sign up for a free 7-day trial. The trial really is free. You don’t need to enter credit card information; nor will Quimbee hound you to purchase the service when the week ends. I signed up for a free trial before writing my blog post and, other than a polite email noting that my trial was about to expire, Quimbee did nothing to pressure me for money. Nor have I gotten spam since my trial ended. So, if you wonder what your students are reading on Quimbee, go ahead and check the site out.

    Here is a way to make them avoid Quimbee. In my legal reasoning book, I suggest that teachers ask students what type(s) of legal reasoning a judge is using in a case–rule-based reasoning (deductive reasoning), reasoning by analogy, distinguishing cases and arguments, synthesis (inductive reasoning), and policy-based reasoning. Canned briefs, including Quimbee, don’t include this information so students will have to read the cases.
