Wex - quick, reliable, legal reference

Many of us have done a quick search on Wikipedia to get a fact, date or rough idea on a topic. Wex, a similar new website provided by our friends at the Legal Information Institute, is

"A collaboratively built, freely available legal dictionary and encyclopedia. Much of the material that appears in Wex was originally developed for the LII's 'Law about...' pages, to which Wex is the successor. "

Like Wikipedia, Wex has multiple contributors, although there is a selection process in order to maintain quality and prevent vandalism.
