About WikiProject Law

Some s have formed a to better organize information in articles related to Law. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other WorldHeritagens. If you would like to help, please inquire on the and see the below.

Scope

This is aimed at creating a greater consistency among the law related articles. Key areas of concern include consistency in defining concepts across multiple jurisdictions and proper categorization of articles.

As a foundation for this effort, it is vital that we create a comprehensive explanation of the common law, which is shared by most English-speaking countries. The common law is clearly divisible into a number of key areas, each of which should be tackled and developed in turn. These areas are:

Each of these areas contains a wide array of long-established but nuanced doctrines, and each has a complex and ultimately fascinating history - making this a particularly worthy project for WorldHeritage to conquer!

The Philosophy of law

A joint effort that can be undertaken between this project and is to improve the quality of articles concerned with the philosophical questions about law itself. Key components of the philosophy of law include:
