ResearchBuzz: Wikilaw -- Open Content Legal Resource

ResearchBuzz: Wikilaw -- Open Content Legal Resource: "Hmm. There are Wikis for practically everything else, so why not legal information? At the same time, do I want to go to an open-edit site for information for which I normally pay a zillion dollars an hour to a lawyer? This is a decision all of us can make when we visit http://wiki-law.org/mwiki/index.php?title=Main_Page.

The information here is grouped into several sites, including a law dictionary, case reviews, and a law review site. It doesn't seem that a lot is happening yet; I went to Wiki-Treatise: Ethics, and chose the only entry, Model Rules of Professional Conduct. While there was an extensive outline here, there wasn't any commentary. Same for the dictionary; most of the words I looked at did not yet have definitions."
