Cornell's Legal Information Institute continues to be a leader in the delivery of web-based legal material. The newest offering is Wex, "a collaboratively-created, public-access law dictionary and encyclopedia."

Wex replaces and improves upon LII"s "Law About" category. Wex consists of a legal dictionary and a legal encyclopedia. Both sources are in a fledging state. The dictionary contains 143 items and the encyclopedia contains 126 items.

Qualified experts are invited to contribute to these resources For more information, see the Editorial Contributions page, http://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/index.php/Editorial_contributions.

To find additional legal dictionaries, see our guide on Legal and General Writing Resources.
