Hi Creative Lawyers! I hope you keep up with the sessions of the LCL. I am personally stuck with Scratch. I guess that it is not easy to be creative :) Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers!

Hi, I'm Jeremy from Christchurch, New Zealand. I graduated law school a few years back, got admitted to the bar but have never really used it. Am currently studying programming part time, and working part time doing nothing too serious. I enjoy learning, and like any opportunity to become a better learner. 

Hi ! I am Cat, I used to be a lawyer (before the kids, in a previous life) specialised in agriculture, in France. I now live in the UK and home educate my 3 boys. Nice to meet you !

Hi everyone, I'm not in law school but I formed a group dedicated to public policy since that's what I plan to study in grad school. Some of you may be interested: https://plus.google.com/communities/106265214217040475399 Hope I'm not coming across as a spammer :)

+Priscila Murara de Carvalho  would you mind setting everyone as a moderator in this group? So that we could amend the group (add categories, etc.). That would be great.

MIND MAPPING THE LAW

I happened to use Freemind (http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page) to organize my lessons while in Law School. Obviously I was not the only one! Do you create mind maps too? Do you think one could create a super-map that could contain everything, like a giant practical case? It could be a great way for people who did not attend Law School to know what does law say about a particular concern they may have.

IMAGINING LAW

According to Mitchel Resnick (http://web.media.mit.edu/~mres/papers/CC2007-handout.pdf), this graph shows the 'kindergarten approach to learning'. Do you think such a method could be used to learn/teach/practise law?

Hey all, my name is Ernesto Ballesteros.

I'm currently satisfying my final 9 hours of my 1L year in law school (St. Mary's University - San Antonio, Texas) but also have a BS and MS in Information Systems and Information Security (Cyber Security). Additionally, I am a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) and Security+ professional.

Professionally, I've been a professor, auditor and information security officer for San Antonio's 3rd largest bank. Currently, I am the CEO & Founder of Top-Down Security Solutions, LLC (www.topdownsecurity.com), where I primarily provide professional information security consulting services for small-large private and public enterprises.

I was invited to participate in MIT's learning experiment, but have had a hard time following the instructions due to my time constraints. Someone suggested that I join the Law Group, so I'm glad to be around like-minded people.

I hate to ask, but can anyone clue me in on what we're supposed to be doing? I've been so swamped with work and school that I'm a little lost.

Thanks :)
