Over the past 20 years in which videotape technology has been commercially available, considerable literature has offered encouragement and advice concerning its general educational applications. More recently, a developing body of literature, materials, and practices has brought videotape to the attention of legal educators. One of the chief impediments to realization of the full potential of videotape in legal education, however, is the lack of an adequate description of the necessary facilities and electronic equipment. This comment will discuss the basic uses of videotape in legal education and the physical facilities and equipment (including types, arrangement, and costs) that might be prepared to accommodate these uses. The comment will conclude with an illustrative description of the specific videotape system that has been developed for the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University.
