Criminal Defense Wiki
International Bridges to Justice believes that increased access to legal resources is a prerequisite for the implementation of the rule of law. In recent years, new approaches to communication and information management have profoundly altered the way institutions function. Many lawyers in developed countries take instantaneous access to legal resources for granted. However, lawyers in developing countries still cannot find even the most basic resources such as penal and procedural codes. It is essential that those seeking to bring about systemic change are aware of current treaties, international human rights norms, local laws and the creative approaches to criminal defense.
IBJ’s Criminal Defense Wiki brings, codes, treaties, case law and other resources to lawyers throughout the world. The website is based on the same software as Wikipedia, and joins criminal defense practitioners, other lawyers and legal professionals, law students, and professors together from around the world to conduct research and develop cases with the most up to date resource materials possible.
