In 2010, the University of Western Australia assisted the University of Western Sydney in their study of the use of virtual moot courts in virtual worlds. Paul Rogers, Senior Lecturer at the University of Western Sydney has kindly allowed us to reproduce part of the journal paper he co-authored with Jennifer Ireland & Michelle Sanson titled "Virtual Moot Court: A Pilot Study" that was published in the Journal of the Australasian Law teachers Association.
Page 2 details the assistance provided by Professor William Ford, then UWA's Dean of the Faculty of Law and Jay Jay Jegathesan, founder of the UWA SL presence. On page 4 Nyx Breen's involvement is described as he was the main architect for the spaces used to conduct the moot court activities, while Raphaella Nightfire is referenced on Page 5 as she helped design the legal attire that was used. Nyx & Raphaella were of course mainstays of the 1st year of art and architecture challenges at UWA.
