Fizzy's Second Life is a series of screencasts by a property law course at Seattle University that looks at property concepts within Second Life. Very clever.

This is probably old hat to librarians, but Ernie points out a nifty site that lets you feel like you have a voice on pending legislations: Keeping up with legislation, cyberstyle.

This is something I'll be keeping an eye on:Law School Innovation: A notable journal-blog cooperative. Providing a source for feedback and follow up to published law review articles sounds very Web 2.0ish.

The ABA's The Legal Research Jumpstation has a wealth of online legal research links. For you Second Life law library folks, this whole site would make a great notecard.

For those using the exam software on their laptops, an FAQ page has been posted on the library’s website:

http://law.ubalt.edu/compsupp/examfaq.html


We expect the usage of the library’s conference rooms to increase during the study and exam periods, and would like to reiterate the policy governing those rooms: They are for groups of law students, and cannot be reserved or held for a study group that is not currently using the room. The library does not have individual study rooms. Anyone using a conference room as an individual study room can be asked by a group to vacate the room. If the request is refused, library staff may be asked to enforce the rule, but the policy is enforced in the first instance by the group seeking to use the room.


Electronic copies of old exams are on the network S drive, which can be accessed via the MyUB Portal (sign on at http://myub.ubalt.edu). Look for the Law Library folder, then the Exams subfolder.


Good luck!
