I’m an avid fan of the online virtual world Second Life®. Once in a while I will write a blog about something happening in Second Life because I consider it an amazing resource. I am the vice-president of finance of the SL Bar Association. The SL Bar Association is a group of attorneys, scholars, and law students who meet to discuss isues of virtual law as well as to informally network with one another. We have approximately 100 members from around the world. Recently one of our members, Kate Fitz, became an accredited provider of continuing legal education credit for attorneys. Through her provider status, the SL Bar Association has helped to sponsor many informative seminars.
Kate Fitz will be teaching the next seminar on “Legal Research on the (Free) Internet.” Kate (known in SL as Cat Galileo) is a reference librarian with the Sacramento County Public Law Library. She will be focusing her talk on resources for primary law, reports and secondary sources. The seminar will take place at the SL Bar Association office on Second Life on October 11, 2008 at 11:30 a.m.
The seminar is offered for free, but you will need to join Second Life and create an account to participate. Attorneys in California may earn 1 hour of CLE.
