Estate Administration[edit]

You'll see that I've changed Estate Administration to become a redirect to Administration of an estate on death. As a general principle, Wikipedia doesn't like to have two articles on the same topic. (There is a proper merge procedure for established articles). You will also see that "Administration of an estate on death", despite its worldwide title, is tagged as not general. It would be great if you would amplify it with US law, or at least NY law. --John Maynard Friedman 13:42, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. Appreciate that note. Yes, I will amplify the Administration of Estate on Death page with US/NY law. I did note the change and figured it had to do with world view. Administration of estate on death has a distinctly British note rolling off my tongue.

The current long title is to make it generic. The specific for each country can then use their local term.
By the way, it is conventional to reply to other editors' comment on their talk pages, not your own. Though of course if the discussion becomes significant, transfer the whole thing to the talk page of the article. Not also my use of the ':' markup to indent my replt. Keep editing, we all learn by correcting our mistakes! --John Maynard Friedman 14:09, 8 November 2007 (UTC)


This page is going to keep track of links for me. I have so many now that I'd like to organize them SOMEWHERE!

You might want to include {{Wills&Trusts}} as in the Probate article. (I've written this in your 'reserved' space, so feel free to delete it!). --John Maynard Friedman 14:13, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Unfair prejudice[edit]

You've made a bit of a mess of this! Could you create a proper disambiguation page - and a main page for this US evidence doctrine for me? Cheers. Wikidea 18:07, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

WP:Hornbook -- a new WP:Law task force for the J.D. curriculum[edit]

Hi Colobikeguy,

I'm asking Wikipedians who are interested in United States legal articles to take a look at WP:Hornbook, the new "JD curriculum task force".

Our mission is to assimilate into Wikipedia all the insights of an American law school education, by reducing hornbooks to footnotes.

  • Over the course of a semester, each subpage will shift its focus to track the unfolding curriculum(s) for classes using that casebook around the country.
  • It will also feature an extensive, hyperlinked "index" or "outline" to that casebook, pointing to pages, headers, or {{anchors}} in Wikipedia (example).
  • Individual law schools can freely adapt our casebook outlines to the idiosyncratic curriculum devised by each individual professor.
  • I'm encouraging law students around the country to create local chapters of the club I'm starting at my own law school, "Student WP:Hornbook Editors". Using WP:Hornbook as our headquarters, we're hoping to create a study group so inclusive that nobody will dare not join.

What you can do now:

1. Add WP:Hornbook to your watchlist, {{User Hornbook}} to your userpage, and ~~~~ to Wikipedia:Hornbook/participants.
2. If you're a law student,
(You don't have to start the club, or even be involved in it; just help direct me to someone who might.)
3. Introduce yourself to me. Law editors on Wikipedia are a scarce commodity. Do knock on my talk page if there's an article you'd like help on.
