What will one need to be a lawyer in SL?

Hi David9,

Are you talking about perhaps RP as a lawyer or are you a lawyer in RL wanting to offer your services in SL? If the latter I'm not sure there is any need for lawyers, as PeeWee said Linden Labs makes the rules.

Well I do know of the attempted lawsuit/legal issues between Ozimals and Amaretto horses but I believe they hired lawyers in RL as far as I am aware.

I guess if all the parties agreed to abide by the decision and it was conducted like a RL courtcase, it is possible, but it is still within the bounds of Roleplay because if anyone decides later not to stick to the agreement there is no one that can enforce it.

You will need:

  1. A good suit
  2. Nice hair
  3. To marry the judge's daughter.  Or possibly furry, this is SL after all.
  4. Gulible clients

So, pretty much like RL :-)

There is no law in SL, as you're discussing in comments.  There are probably many courthouses around SL but they have no official standing.

If you are a lawyer in real life, and want to open an office or communicate with people in Second Life, please consider joining the SL Bar Association.  http://slbarassn.ning.com/

If you are not a lawyer in real life, I suggest pursuing a legal career outside of SL and then joining the SLBA as a law student.

Hope that helps,

Contrary to Mr. Legal Writer's suggestion, there are no lawyers in Second Life...because there are no laws, only Linden Lab policies.

There are people who CALL themselves lawyers.  You can be one if you like, all you need to do is say "I am an SL lawyer".  If you wish, you can provide all the window dressing you want...a nice suit, a suite of offices, a comely young secretary.  You can advertise, and find (or build) a courtroom in which to "try cases" with other like-minded folks.

You may or may not be a lawyer in Real Life...this has no bearing whatsoever on being a pretend lawyer in SL.
