About About WikiProject LawEdit

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 ScopeEdit

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.

As a foundation for this effort, 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:

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 lawEdit

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:

Here are some tasks you can do for WikiProject Law:
  • Factual verification needed
    • The Doctrine of the General Talking Pictures Case - please check this new article for conformity to Wikipedia style
    • Doug Anthony All Stars. This article makes reference to two bans, of a book and an album by this comedy / variety group, in the UK circa 1989-1990, with both resulting in court cases. Are there any UK lawyers out there who might locate citations for these court cases, and perhaps include key quotes from judgements in the WP article? hamiltonstone (talk) 22:39, 15 February 2009 (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.
