The Wikiversity Law Review is a freely-licensed series of journal-style articles on the law. You can post any scholarly article, case note, or brief that you have written and it will be reviewed (although there is no timescale for this) and feedback provided. In the interim this series will be informal but the long-term aim is to transform it into a more formal peer-reviewed WikiJournal of Law in association with the WikiJournal project.

Legal scholarship can be completely objective, but commonly requires at least a conclusion which expresses an opinion. Please limit any editing of articles that you did not write, to general fixes and correcting gramatical errors because these articles are scholarly in nature, and many will contain some bias.
