At-Large Participant Project Pages
CyberOne At-Large (and growing!)
CyberOne: Law in the Court of Public Opinion is a pathbreaking class offered in the Fall Semester of 2006 through Harvard Law School. At Large participants are non-enrolled students who are participating in the course in many ways: watching the videos, doing the readings, meeting informally in Second Life, and organizing project groups on our own and with enrolled students.
Here's a list of current At-Large Participants. If you are an At-Large participant and are not listed, please add yourself to the list and provide a bit of information about yourself.
If you are interested in connecting with other at-large participants please join the CyberOne at-large participants mailing list.
There are also two SL groups that have formed in order to facilitate increased cooperation among At-Large members. Contact members of the group to get involved! The two groups are:
At-Large Participants' Meetings

Law And Society Conference Folks, the annual Law and Society Association conference has announced a Call for Papers for the 2007 Conference in Berlin. The theme of this year's conference is: "Law and Society in the 21st Century: Transformations, Resistances, Futures." Is anyone interested in possibly jointly authoring a paper on topics of interest to the CyberOne community? Law and Society Conference
To make the experience more fulfilling--and to prove the power of this new rhetorical space--At-Large participants are working to create diverse projects. Check out some of the current projects and new ideas for projects! Also take a look at the In-Class Projects.
How to Start a Project
You can start a project simply by adding a description of it to the list below. Whether you intend to do the project by yourself or with collaborators, it is good to have a clear plan for your project so that you know where you're going and what you have to do to get there. The Harvard Extension School students are doing this by using a Project Proposal Template to develop their projects. If you find it helpful, you should copy this template to a new page that you link from the list below and fill it out with the information about your project.
It is definitely possible to do a project by yourself, but it will probably be more fun and more rewarding if you can attract others to it. The best way to do that is to make your project description as clear as possible and also to explicitly state how others can get involved.
How to Join a Project
Browse through the list of projects below until you find one that you'd like to work on. You can get in touch with the person who set up the project or just get started by editing some of your ideas about how to do the project right into the wiki. Don't worry that you'll be stepping on someone's toes, because they can always undo your changes. You may want to look on the discussion page of the project to see if participants are already discussing how to proceed.
