Project description
What is the project purpose? What will be its scope? How would it benefit to be part of Wikimedia?
Laws are all mostly already in public domain. The court cases and decisions are in public domain too. But its all text, not fit for machines. It should be organised and broken down in wikidata like structure to make it machine readable. Required for research in legal field using advanced computing solutions.
How many wikis?
Will there be many language versions or just on one multilingual wiki?
One multilingual wiki like wikidata.
How many languages?
Is the project going to be in one language or in many?
Multilingual
