Event Details

The first Edit-a-thon will be held Friday, April 14th, from 10AM-2PM in the Student Lounge. Light refreshments will be available and pizza will be provided during the noon lunch hour.

About the Initiative

One component of access to justice is that legal information is freely and readily available to the general public. Although volunteers mean well, the accuracy of Wikipedia articles may often be lacking. This initiative is designed to improve the content and quality of Wikipedia articles related to the legal field, while providing students the opportunity to earn pro bono hours in the process. More information about this initiative and the process can be found in the "Earning Pro Bono Hours" tab.
