I am British and live in London. My main interests are history, law and physics. And, for that matter, Wikipedia! I have written quite a few pages.

I really think that Wikipedia will, given 10 years, become for law students a superior learning material to most casebooks, and the first point of call when students do not understand what they've read for class. If you look at how many US Supreme Court judgments are already up, it must be clear that this is the tip of the iceberg. My view is that the most important thing on the law pages is good structure - e.g. headings should always link to main articles - and good references. I've reformatted the law template, and the law portal (and apart from their reordering, giving them their current glossy red/gold). And then I've done loads of other little things, like most Wikipedians do. It's just for fun, and hopefully it's useful.

All comments are welcome.

p.s. have a look at Professor Wikipedia for a good laugh.
p.p.s. here is an interesting new tool; a webpage which shows you how many hits each article gets here.

Interesting pages from Britannica 1911[edit]

And very useful is Category:United States case law by topic
