Wiki-Law, the legal resource anyone can edit. Initially stylised as Wikilaw, its goal was to build the largest open content legal resource in the world. It was subsequently modified: "Wiki-Law's mission is to be a resource to the US legal community". Please contribute to the Wiki-Treatises, Wiki-Motions, Wiki-Law-Dictionary, Wiki-Law-Articles, and Democracy 2.0.

Wiki-Treatises are collaborative documents created by the Wiki-Law community on various different aspects of the law.

Wiki-Law-Dictionary seeks to collaboratively produce a comprehensive law dictionary that is free for anyone to consult.

Wiki-Law Case Briefs seeks to collaboratively produce case briefs of cases in all areas of law.

Wiki-Law-Review is the first collaborative law review.

Wiki-Motions seeks to aid practitioners in drafting memos to support their motions.

Wiki Democracy

Wiki Democracy (previously 'Democracy 2.0') is a Wikilaw experiment that hypothesizes that a wide range of individuals, not just politicians and special interest groups, can contribute to the creation of our nation's laws. All laws listed in this section are the collaborative effort of the Wiki Democracy community. The site aggregates the viewpoints of all users, after a large number of edits, to reach a consensus on what laws society should impose on us. Wiki Democracy hyopthesizes that collaboration through a wiki will filter social norms, transform these social norms into legislation, which in turn will produce superior laws to govern society.

When initially created, Wiki-Law was originally licensed under a dual license, namely the GNU Free Documentation License (GNU FDL, or GFDL), and the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 License (CC-BY-SA 2.5).[1] The license was later changed to the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial 2.5 (CC-BY-NC 2.5).[2]

The wiki became spammed, and was subsequently taken offline early 2007.
