More than 500 Law Review Articles Cite Wikipedia

Last week I blogged about judicial rulings that
cite Wikipedia. Apparently, law faculty love the
online reference tool, too!

According to Paul Caron at the TaxProf Blog
(2/5/2007), "545 law review articles cite Wikipedia
and an additional 125 articles mention Wikipedia
but do not cite it as authority." Caron's research
assistant used Westlaw's JLR database as
his source for the data.
