Wiki Laws

Nowadays laws are usually written by a certain limited number of people. Participation in law-making is very demanding and time consuming.

Can we design a system based on wiki technology where Laws can be written or edited by all the experts available in the population?

Those laws can surely be improved if more poeple are allowed to participate for obvious reasons, unbiased expertise and a lot of man-hours. In this way, a Law editor can invest seconds, hours or days and all it takes is the will to improve the society he lives in.

This can allow a lot of people that are not involved in politics, real experts in their fileds, to contribute in writing new Laws or improving the existing ones.
