The Legal Information Institute (Cornell University) has started WEX as the first collaboratively edited legal encyclopedia and dictionary on the Web, aimed specifically at law novices according to an article in the New York State Bar News, Vol. 47, Nov./Dec. 2005 at 31.
WEX is written on the wiki platform, but unlike its famous predecessor, the entries will not be open for anyone to write and edit. WEX does, however, welcome collaboration and contribution. For more details, e-mail Barbara Beauchamp. firstname.lastname@example.org
