Legal wikis

From Lawlibrary

There aren't many legal wikis, yet. Those that I have found include:

WikiCrimeLine WikiCrimeLine is a project, set up as part of the CrimeLine family of free updating materials. This is your unique opportunity to share your knowledge of the criminal justice system with others, for the greater public good. Everyone is welcome to contribute. The challenge to start a project like this was laid down by Professor Susskindin a speech given to The Society for Computers and Law, reported in The Gazette- I am sure that we can rise to it!
