We've made it easy to link Wex articles to a rich collection of
legal resources outside of Wex itself. Here are instructions for a
number of commonly-used outside collections and resources. If you know
of other, stable collections of legal information on the Web that you
think Wex authors might be interested in, please let us know.
WEX is a collaboratively-edited legal dictionary and encyclopedia. It is intended for a broad audience of people we refer to as "law novices" -- which at one time or another describes practically everyone, even law students and lawyers entering new areas of law. No doubt purists will be quick to point out the differences between a dictionary and an encyclopedia. We deliberately blur the distinction, as we are interested in providing objective, useful material in a range of formats. (See Why bother?.)
