The March ABA Journal has an article (linked below) about lawyers in Second Life, in which I am quoted. Unfortunately,
the article incorrectly identifies the in-world bar association I started, the Second Life Bar Association, as the “Linden Bar Association,” [the article initially misidentified the in-world bar association I started -- the Second Life Bar Association -- as the "Linden Bar Association," but after I contacted the author about the problem, the online article was corrected, and a print correction will run in a future edition], and largely focuses on the now somewhat dated dust-up at the Confederation of Democratic Simulators over an attempt to create a formal code of justice.
It’s worth a visit anyway, if you are interested in virtual law. If nothing else, it’s nice to see the mainstream legal press paying a little attention to virtual worlds.
