This presentation, submitted to GDC Europe 2014, conveys the idea that lawyers can add to game design by doing three things. First, by 'lawyering' itself (consulting, litigaition, patent checks). Second, by identifying new opportunities for game design at intersection of real and virtual world. Third, by helping to see an essential similarity between rules of a game and legal rules, by drawing more inspiration by analogy.
