The Second Life Bar Association (SLBA) held its first large-scale organizational meeting yesterday at the Capitol Hill North public meeting space in Second Life.
The meeting was attended by about 25 avatars, most of whom identified themselves as attorneys, law students, or law librarians.
Discussion focused on the SLBA’s plans for projects for 2007, which include a voluntary credential verification service for in-world attorneys, a pro bono resource center, exploration of in-world justice/dispute resolution systems, and practice support options for attorney members. The organization also voted to impose dues of L$500 ($2.06 US) per year for membership.
The SLBA currently has over 140 members, including over 110 members who have logged in to Second Life within the past 30 days.
Note: Benjamin Duranske, as Second Life avatar ‘Benjamin Noble,’ founded the SLBA and is currently the organization’s President.
