[edit] Abstract

Law students are footnoting the publicly authored, online resource known as Wikipedia in their term papers. Courts have cited to Wikipedia in authoritative judicial opinions. Law professors are doing so in their journal articles. Yet some members ofthe legal and academic communities are up in arms. decrying the use of an encyclopedia that anyone can write and edit. To allow students to rely on an online resource that might contain mistakes encourages laziness and risks undermining the legitimacy of legal authority and professionalism.
