Today in VoxPopuLII, Staffan Malmgren takes on the topic of crowdsourcing legal commentary. As more and more primary materials become available for free, attention is turning from making law available to making law truly accessible and understandable. This is a problem that the LII began addressing in 1994, with the creation of its "Law about..." pages (now the WEX legal dictionary and encyclopedia) and with its LIIBULLETIN analyses of Supreme Court cases. Staffan's project is a fascinating one, and we are thinking about how to apply its lessons to some things we are planning for the near future. Stay tuned.
