The page history is also known as the revision history of a page. It is viewed by clicking on Timeless Skin - Clock-grey.pngHistory.

All editable pages on Wiki Law School have a viewable page history. Each page history includes links to old versions of the raw wikitext as well as a record of the date and time of every edit, the username or IP address of the user who wrote it, and their edit summary.

Once in the revision history of a page, one can then select any two revisions and click Compare selected revisions to view the "diff". The diff is a side-by-side comparison of two revisions, showing which lines were deleted from the old revision, which lines were added to the new revision, and which lines were changed between the two revisions.
