Judgepedia works to create better citizenship through the free and open sharing of information. It's a nonpartisan interactive encyclopedia about United States federal courts and state courts, the selection of judges, and judicial philosophy. Being a wiki means anyone can improve it... even you! By adding your knowledge and fixing mistakes, the quality and depth of Judgepedia's information improves over time.
Why volunteer on Judgepedia?
|Judgepedia is a leading source for information on the American judiciary. The work you create on Judgepedia is read by thousands of specialist and lay readers every day, giving you an audience for your writing. Instead of building one from scratch, the audience built into our wiki welcomes you.|
|We don't have block parties or a PTA, but Judgepedia is an active and friendly community. We come together for the purpose of spreading information about American democracy, and we're passionate about what we do. We help each other in reaching our collective goals.|
|Our promise to fellow volunteers is to immediately join your efforts, refining and improving any content you contribute. We might add entirely new sections to your article, add links, or bring the text in-line with our community standards. In the spirit of support, we also have a Wiki 101 webinar training video to help you get started.|
|Along with the support and community we offer, we promise to protect your contributions. Your article is yours, and though others may add to it or improve it, we ensure it's kept safe. We vigilantly guard against vandalism—we read every change made on Judgepedia—to make sure your additions will be here for years to come.|
|A wiki is different from blogs and other online media because it presents comprehensive information on a subject on one page, forever. That means an article you create can become the definitive resource on the topic. And since Judgepedia hosts the data, you can rest easy knowing your contributions will last as long as the internet. And that's a long time.|
