The LSG Openlaw Project

"None of us is as smart as all of us."
- Ken Blanchard

The shallow, practical version of the project: We want to build a wikipedia (or wiki-law)-like resource where law students can stash, revise, and retrieve stuff to make their lives easier: notes, reviewers, digests, that obscure municipal ordinance only their professor cares about.

The deep, philosophical version: We want to harness the power of smart people working together. To transform the way the law is learned and imagined: as a conversation rather than a lecture. To make sure that there is no space for fear, uncertainty, and doubt in the way we study and review the law. To trade in hierarchies for hyperlinks.

To do this, we need your help. Any contribution will be welcome: Materials, skills, your time and effort. We have no grade, year-level, or height requirement. We will teach you how to use the tools you need.

To join the Openlaw Project, simply write your name and contact info on one of the sign-up sheets on the LSG Board, or write: lsg_openlaw[that-ubiquitous-at-sign]

(Oh, and please help spread the word - through your blogs and egroups. We'll need all the help we can get)

Please bring your Form 5 to the OCS to claim the refund.
