John DeBruyn reports on the innovative work he is doing, with the help of German lawyer Rainer Langenhan and others, to build a bridge between European lawyers and U.S. lawyers who participate in the Network-Lawyers discussion group. Visiting Langenhan’s German-language blawg, Handakte WebLAWg, DeBruyn found a link to the German legal wiki JuraWiki. He then created an English-language page at JuraWiki about the Network-Lawyers discussion group. And to help English-speaking lawyers navigate the JuraWiki site, he used the Google translation tool to build an English-language tour of JuraWiki.
