Abstract:     
A single action of an individual is highly influenced not only by personal interests and desires, but also by a complex network of social influences. Because of this vast outside social pressure within society, the legal ramifications of individual action must also be studied in a multidimensional way to incorporate these social values. One effective means to do so is to begin linking the socioeconomic paradigm into traditional legal study through the use of teaching simulations. This article brings forth a new method involving hand-on simulations and outlines its necessity within the legal sphere. Through these simulations, students are able to have an active and experiential concept of the way in which personal and social values influence reasonable action.
