If you wish to add "Did you know" facts for rotation within this portal, please note the following:

  • DYKs at this list must have successfully already appeared at Template:Did you know
  • Add the hooks to a subpage of this portal, such as Portal:Law of England and Wales/Did you know/#, replacing the "#" with the number above the current highest. For example, if 30 sets of hooks are in rotation, you would make the number of the page you are creating 31.
  • Hooks should be in groups of five. Aim for variety within the groups, and move hooks between the groups if necessary. Find an image to use with the first of the hooks. The following layout is used in the existing sets, and consistency would be a good idea:

{{*mp}} ... that ...?

  • When a set is complete, increase the "max=" number in the DYK section on the main Portal
  • Update this list accordingly.
