A Quick Look at Wex
Wex is a collaboratively-edited legal dictionary and encyclopedia. It is intended for the general public and law students. The site is sponsored and hosted by LII at Cornell Law School. Much of the material that appears in Wex was originally developed for the LII's "Law about..." pages. See Wex's FAQ.
At first glance one thinks "wiki" but unlike, the usual wiki, Wex requires qualified contributors. If you are interested in contributing to Wex, see editorial contributions.
Kudos to the folks at LII. This is a fantastic venture and with almost 300 pages of content online, Wex is off to a great start. Over time, I'm confident Wex will be one of the premier web destinations for general legal information. See a list of existing pages.
