Legal Dictionary/Legal Encyclopedia
If you or anyone you know needs any assistance with legal terms, Cornell University Law School’s Legal Information Institute maintains Wex, a freely available legal dictionary and legal encyclopedia.
Users can browse all entries alphabetically or search for a specific term. In order to search, however, you will need to create a free account.
In its FAQ section Wex describes its targeted group as a “broad audience of people we refer to as “law novices — which at one time or another describes practically everyone, even law students and lawyers entering new areas of law.”
Wex is open to contributions from legal experts- editing/authoring guidelines can be found here.
