Everyone knows about Wikipedia, the collaborative online encyclopedia. But there are legal wikis that focus on legal issues and information. Two of the better known are JurisPedia and Wex (from the folks at Cornell’s Legal Information Institute, one of the best legal information sites). There is a new entry from FindLaw, it’s called LawBrain. Here’s how they describe themselves:
The brain in LawBrain is you. As you browse and search content, share your knowledge by adding to and editing new and existing pages.
Wikis are often a good place to start with an unfamiliar topic but, particularly with legal information, always verify. See what you think.
