New Office for the SL Bar Association

I am pleased to announce that the SL Bar Association has a new office location. After careful consideration of various locations within Second Life®, and a period of construction, the Association found a permanent home. This month’s meeting of the Association will take place on the Association’s own land and in its own building. The meeting time is 10 AM, Saturday, May 8, 2010, and the new office location is Nimue 34, 148, 60 in Second Life®.
The Association, according to its strategic plan, is “an informal association of lawyers, law students, and those interested in virtual worlds legal topics to explore the legal issues stemming from virtual worlds, and Second Life® in particular.” It “also explores the management of law practices in virtual worlds, such as Second Life®.”

The Association continues to serve as a focal point for the study of virtual worlds law and interacts with other association groups, such as virtual worlds committees within the American Bar Association Section of Science & Technology Law and the ABA IP Law Section. The Association offers regular continuing legal education within Second Life®, and I anticipate that the new building will offer a terrific forum for people to meet and learn about virtual worlds legal issues.
