How did we make Wex – our free, community-built legal dictionary/encyclopedia – even more comprehensive and easy to understand? By teaming with the smart folks over at Nolo and building their Plain English Legal Dictionary definitions right into each Wex entry. Have a look at the Wex entry for the term “common law” for a live example of the photo above, and here’s an alphabetical list of Wex entries if you want more.
We think adding Nolo’s definitions to Wex will help you understand the entries in Wex better; sometimes it’s nice to hear things explained in different ways, isn’t it? Plus it makes it easier for you to compare the community-built, editable Wex entry with a static definition.
Thanks again to the people at Nolo for partnering up with us on this one. Here’s the official press release announcement. This is the first of what we hope will be a number of collaborative projects with Nolo. They’re long-time leaders at making law accessible to the public, and it’s a privilege to work with them.
