About About WikiProject Law

Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to Law. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

Namespace Wikipedia.svg Scope

This Wikiproject is aimed at creating a greater consistency among the law related articles. Key areas of concern include consistency in defining concepts across multiple jurisdictions and proper categorization of articles.

The common law

It is vital that we create a comprehensive explanation of the common law, which is shared by most English-speaking countries. The common law is clearly divisible into a number of key areas, each of which should be tackled and developed in turn. These areas are:

Institutional System of the Roman jurist Gaius:

Pandectist System:

Each of these areas contains a wide array of long-established but nuanced doctrines, and each has a complex and ultimately fascinating history - making this a particularly worthy project for Wikipedia to conquer!

The Philosophy of law

A joint effort that can be undertaken between this project and WikiProject Philosophy is to improve the quality of articles concerned with the philosophical questions about law itself. Key components of the philosophy of law include:

To do list

  • Mandatory sentencing

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Consent search needs to be developed
  • Terry stop needs to be fixed...multiple warnings
  • Pretextual stop needs a page...is currently redirecting to "Driving while Black"
  • Can Traffic stop be added and fixed? Or separate page called "Traffic stop law"
  • Should Fish v. Kobach be renamed Fish v. Schwab? Document 573 in this case in the US District Court for the District of Kansas filed 01/18/19 says, "Plaintiffs sued Defendant Kris W. Kobach in his official capacity as Secretary of State for the State of Kansas. Kobach served in that capacity until noon on January 14, 2019. At that time, his successor, Scott Schwab, was sworn in as Kansas Secretary of State. By operation of law, Secretary Schwab “is automatically substituted as a party.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 25(d)." The final rulings were issued June 18 and 19, 2018, but the case was appealed. I suspect that people with Wikipedia:WikiProject Law may have standard procedures for dealing with situations like this. Thanks, DavidMCEddy (talk) 04:12, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Tasks

This list is transcluded from the tasks page, to edit it click here.

Here are some tasks you can do for WikiProject Law:


Page reorganization in progress

We are currently seeking to impose a better organizational scheme to this page. Please see the Talk page for more information and to discuss. Also feel to jump right in and help with this project.

  • See the top of an article's Talk page to determine its importance to WP:LAW.
  • Articles listed on this "Tasks" page should have one or more cleanup tags (for the entire article or for sections). Cleanup tags are also known as "template messages", which are applied to a page using a cleanup template affixed to the top of the article. See a description of the cleanup process and a list of cleanup templates, also known as "template messages".

Cleanup needed: Top-importance articles

Articles in this section have been rated "Top-class" (also known as "Top-importance") on the WikiProject Law Importance scale.

  • Case law
  • Murder - needs cites, could become a GA with a bit of work. Would it be worthwhile to take the knotty legal issues out of this article and instead try to deal with them more clearly (and accurately) in separate articles by jurisdiction? There is significant chat on the talk page but I'm not sure how active it is. Would be willing to help as best I can but need guidance Shayday~enwiki (talk) 03:17, 10 June 2016 (UTC) SH

Cleanup needed: High-importance articles

Articles in this section have been rated "High-class" (also known as "High-importance") on the WikiProject Law Importance scale.

Cleanup needed: Mid-importance articles

Articles in this section have been rated "Mid-class" (also known as "Mid-importance") on the WikiProject Law Importance scale.

Cleanup needed: Low-importance articles

Articles in this section have been rated "Low-class" (also known as "Low-importance") on the WikiProject Law Importance scale.

  • Merger guidelines - See "multiple issues" cleanup tag at the top of the article. (cleanup tag added on 2 Jun 2019)
  • Pendent party jurisdiction - Incomplete, confusing article. Should be deleted if not improved. (2 Jun 2019)

Cleanup needed: Unknown-importance articles

Articles in this section have been rated "Unknown-class" (also known as "Unknown-importance") on the WikiProject Law Importance scale.

Articles added to Tasks page, but do not contain any Cleanup tags

These articles were placed on this Tasks page at some time in the past. They might require cleanup of some kind, but since they do not contain any cleanup tags their status is unclear. See a description of the cleanup process and a list of cleanup templates. (Cleanup tags are also known as "cleanup messages" or "template messages").

In process

The articles below have not yet been reviewed to determine their proper placement in the new organizational scheme. You can help by determining the article's importance to WikiProject Law and then moving it to the appropriate section above. (2 Jun 2019)

    • Toibb v. Radloff – court case – recently failed WP:GAN – needs a lot of work.
    • Corporate law - the article has little coherence, and seems to suffer from a lack of defined purpose.
    • Alford plea - The current page is extremely weak and lacks nuance. Most significantly, as discussed on its talk page, the definition section is repetitive and nigh unreadable and the commentary section reads more like a set of book jacket reviews than a critical discussion. I don't have the legal knowhow to really fix the page up, but I figure someone here does. Gazeboist (talk) 07:34, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Current law articles on peer review
  • Reopened assessment department
    • The assessment department has been defunct but now has been reopened with various glitches fixed. There are still a few minor improvements needed and are discussed on the talk page of the assessment department.
    • Input on the assessment scheme from members of this WikiProject are needed to reach a consensus on whether to adopt C-class or not - currently, there is no consensus.
  • Answer requests for comments

These are the current projects that the WikiProject Law is working on:
  • Wikisource: If you're so inclined, please help with the importation of United States Supreme Court cases on our sister project, Wikisource. A bot is currently in the process of importing every Supreme Court decision from bulk.resource.org's collection of the United States Reports. The project is in need of people to assist in proofreading, editing, and disambiguating decisions added by the bot. WikiProject U.S. Supreme Court cases on Wikisource has information about formatting and other guidelines, as well as a to do list.
