Law[edit]

To be manually checked, then deleted if done or moved to article's talk page:

  • legal ethics. This article barely scratches the surface of legal ethics. No examples are given, and the subject is not explored in any detail beyond definition and a brief explanation of who regulates legal ethics. Minaker 16:06, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
  • capital punishment debate. The talk page is full of complaints about bias in favor of one side, an issue that should probably be addressed by someone in Wikipedia authority at this point; the debate on whether the article is biased has gone out of control. There is also a question of whether the article even belongs on Wikipedia, as it has become more of a sounding board for debaters rather than a balanced encyclopedic entry on a topic.

  • Legal drinking age. There seems to be confusion about the definition of the term; it is not that simple as one might think. More on article's talk page. SGJ 21:18, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
  • court This page is rather simplistic, it describes the interior of a US courtroom, followed by someone's reply with the interior of English courtrooms. Some history and discussion of the social institution of a law court would be good here, perhaps a discussion of the court systems of various countries.
    • To facilitate this discussion, I've separated out courtroom into its own article. -- 8^D BD2412gab 23:07, 2005 Apr 19 (UTC)
  • RAVE Act - need major POV fix. The author spent so much time saying why this law would be the greatest injustice since the Leo Frank case (my words, not his), he never actually says what the law is Plantagenet Palliser 20:50, 29 Dec 2004 (UTC)
  • USL v. BSDi - needs review/factchecking, especially by anyone with a background in law or with knowledge of the events. Also, a new source has become available (referenced from the page), from which the article could be finished and factchecked. IMHO, this page is only just valuable enough to not be deleted outright, and I wrote a good deal of it. jhf 05:42, 30 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Affirmative action - Please give a hand, this article needs a lot of work, and a lot of help from as many editors as possible. Big POV/personality conflict problems, as well as some vandalism and a lot of reverting. Sam [Spade] 18:25, 21 Aug 2004 (UTC)
  • School choice - reads like a pamphlet from the Pioneer Institute. It needs heavy attribution to replace "critics say", "advocates want", etc., with actual, real examples.
  • Worker safety and health - This seems to be a summary of some American legislation with which I am not familiar. I am no more knowledgeable about the subject after reading the article than before! If someone actually knows anything about the subject, maybe they could the article some attention? (I was actually expecting it to be a more general article about workplace health and safety, maybe detailing relevant legislation in different countries. Tjwood 18:39, 16 Jun 2004 (UTC)
I just did a total rewrite, with considerabel expansion, although more non-us contet would be useful. DES 22:34, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)
