Teaching property law in Second Life

Fizzy's Second Life

Last semester, Seattle U. Professor of Law Elizabeth Townsend-Gard taught a 1L property class that included a Second Life component, in which students explored virtual property as a way to gain insight into real property. I find this pedagogical tool of using virtual worlds as a cognitive foil for the real one a fascinating way to make use of virtual worlds, and hope to make use of that approach in my soon-to-be-announced class this fall.
