This special interactive course for law students will be held inside Second Life in April and September of 2007. Second Life is the immensely popular 3-D online world in which users, known as 'residents,' build and own their own content online. Students will receive custom tutoring so they can do more than survive law school -- they can succeed.

Law students from all over the United States will be able to create a membership in Second Life ( Students will be able to enter the BARWINNERS' virtual classroom where Shari Karney, ESQ. will provide personalized training on the secrets of law school success. Each student will have their own avatar and be given 5,000 "Lindens" to purchase study aids and clothing to personalize their own avatar. The Linden Dollar is an "in-world" currency used by Second Life buyers and sellers to provide goods and services.

The course is entitled "The Secrets of Law School Success - How to be in the top 10% of your class so you can land a top law firm job." This virtual course will show law students how to make their hard work pay off and how to spend less time to receive better results. The top law firms only hire the top 10%. By using Second Life as the technology and teaching platform for the course we will be offering a very realistic course interaction between Shari Karney and her students.

The course will feature topics like how to write a top law school essay exam, how to wow your law school professor and how to beat out the competition. Students will also learn tips to scoring high on multiple-choice exams.

Second Life currently boasts over 4,000,000 residents, with an average of 30,000 members online at any given time.
