Law firms in Second Life

Posted by K Krasnow Waterman on Fri, Nov 09, 2007 @ 11:11 AM
A few weeks ago, I wrote about the ability to conduct business in a virtual environment.  Yesterday, the American Bar Association reported that a few law firms have set up shop in Second Life.  One firm discussed the ability to work with clients who can't or don't want to come in to the office.  While this will create significant challenges for US lawyers -- what state are you practicing in when you meet in Second Life? what bar do you need to be admitted to?  whose ethical rules are you bound by? -- I think the clients are going to love it!
