I'm a researcher in economics. For a project I am working on, I've realized I need a better understanding of NYC Real Estate law. I've realized in this pursuit that there is no easily accessible resources available that will teach someone the law they are ruled by.
As a citizen bound by law, I feel like I am in some way entitled to resources to help me understand that law if I choose to pursue it. I can scroll through Wikipedia articles for hours on just about anything I want, I should be able to do the same for the law.
What forces are stopping such a resource from being available? It seems like it would be a valuable use of government resources.
