Core Articles listing
I have taken the liberty of rearranging the core articles page Law section, provisionally, to try to see what are the really major gaps. The articles listed tend to be a bit US-centric, so I have added one or two extras there. I shifted most to column two, but they should really be in column one in hierarchical order.
One comment, as a social scientist with some legal background, is that we do need articles which can guide the intelligent layman easily. This means that technical info about important caselaw, for example, should be minimized. I suppose the Editors here will want the articles to be useful for law students as well, but please remember that this is a general encyclopedia.
Apologies for interfering from my multidisciplinary background: I won't do it too often:-) --Martin Baldwin-Edwards 21:05, 5 October 2007 (CDT)
