Welcome to Legallypedia, which will hopefully become an encyclopedic resource to help Indian lawyers and law students research jobs and careers, law schools and anything remotely legal.
The first major Legallypedia project will be to create a list and contact details for all major moots in India and abroad in preparation for the 2010-11 edition of Legally India's Mooting Premier League.
How to use the Legallypedia wiki
Using Legallypedia is simple. It uses the same collaborative software as the excellent Wikipedia.
Like Wikipedia, Legallypedia can not exist without your honest help and support. Legallypedia relies on reader contributions that are accurate, unbiased and verifiable - just like a proper paper dictionary or directory.
The idea is for articles on Legallypedia to help current and future generations of law students and lawyers by sharing collective knowledge and contributing towards transparency.
How to use a wiki
In a very small nutshell, you can edit any article on Legallypedia and create as many new articles as you like on legal topics.
- Just click the "Edit" button above any article and you can change the text, which will be instantly published.
- To create a new article, just type the title of the article in the white search box to the top-right and click "Go". If an article on the topic or a similar topic exist, click on it from the search results. Otherwise, click the red link and you can create a new article.
- Any red links within an article mean that no article exists yet. You can click the red link and create a new article on the topic.
- To create a link in any article to a new or existing article, simply type:
Here is a link to the wiki page of [[Legally India]]. When saved, it looks like this: Here is a link to the wiki page of Legally India.
