Lawspot LogoSecond Life’s ‘Cat Galileo,’ a real life and Second Life law librarian, has put together two resources with in-world and web-based components that should prove really interesting to regular readers. The first is “Lawspot” which is both a law library in Second Life (here’s a SLURL, you can find it in the Bell Library on the 5th Floor on Info Island I, in the southeast corner) and a web-based resource for virtual law. It contains links to everything from lists of blogs like VB, to real-world litigation listings, to pointers to books related to virtual worlds and law.

From the Lawspot description:

The Lawspot Library’s primary goal is to gather resources and links related to the law of virtual worlds, both Second Life and others. The Library also contains links and resources related to U.S.A. primary law and secondary sources.

‘Galileo’ also manages the Galileo Law Directory, available in-world at the Lawspot library, and also on the web, which is a comprehensive, frequently updated listing of in-world Second Life legal content. Some of what you will find here may surprise you. For example, she currently lists forty lawyers with offices in Second Life. She also has sections for ADR, Facilities, Associations, Business Groups, Educational Resources, Governance, and Roleplay. Both sites are well worth bookmarking.

    The law directory is a very worthwhile resource, and I recommend it to anyone.

    Thank you for the mention! very kind of you.

    There is a new version of the in-world directory due out as soon as the current bugginess around no-copy items is resolved (I use the THINC press and it’s not currently working). The new version will include landmarks for all of the businesses I could locate, which I hope will increase the directory’s usefulness.

    I’d like to see this go international as well.
