    encyclopedia of academic law in many languages, [2] currently available in

    German , Spanish and Dutch . It was started in October 2004, inspired in part by Wikipedia and the Enciclopedia Libre (University of Seville). JurisPedia runs on the MediaWiki software, but it is not a Wikimedia Foundation project.

    JurisPedia was developed on the initiative of the African Legal Information Institute, the Faculty of law of the Can Tho University (Vietnam ), the team of JURIS (Université du Québec à Montréal, Canada ), the

    Institut für Rechtsinformatik of

    Saarland University (Germany ), the

    Institut de Recherche et d'Études en Droit de l'Information et de la Communication (IREDIC) of the Paul Cézanne University .[3]

    The site, one of the largest legal encyclopedias and online legal references , won the Dieter Meurer Prize for Legal Informatics for 2009. [4]


    Since 2012, JurisPedia is member of the Free Access to Law Movement.[6]

    On March 10, 2014, the French version of Jurispedia and the Bar Association of Paris have signed an agreement to take part in the creation of the «Great Library of Law » [7]
