Description:
Discussion group for law-related issues
This is a community dedicated to people who have questions about legal matters of any nature, in any country. Non-members are free to comment.

Related Communities:
lawquestions_au is a sister community to law_questions formed specifically for issues specific to Australians.

tax_prep focuses specifically on the U.S. Federal income tax.

Rules:
Be respectful to the OP and each other. Joking, sarcasm or snark is not necessarily disrespectful, but keep in mind what is okay with you may be offensive to another person. Do not bait.

Try to stay on topic to the post at hand. Grudges, complaints, drama, etc. from past posts, other communities, etc. should not be brought into or carried on in the comments here.

Try to be accurate as to the substance of the legal or factual issues raised.

Rude or obnoxious comments may be deleted or frozen.

Racist, sexist, hateful or grossly inaccurate comments will be deleted and the user making such a comment will be banned.

No one but the moderator should delete comments. A poster deleting someone else's comment may be banned.

Original posters are free to delete their entire posts as they see fit.

Rather than assuming the moderator will see a problem that you see, if you perceive an issue arise that you think needs moderator attention, please message or email
speciesofspaces, particularly if you feel you are being harassed or mocked.

Violation of any of these rules may result in losing the ability to post or comment in this community.

Disclaimer:
Members should attempt to provide accurate information. However, the accuracy of the information is the sole responsibility of the person responding, and not of the community moderators.

Use of Real Names:

While not an inviolable rule, for reasons of privacy, decency, potential liability, and protection of those presumed innocent, as well as the assurance of unbiased advice (we are not your attorney, remember?) the use of real names in submitted questions should be avoided when at all possible.

This is a public forum where you are asking street-corner advice from people who are assumed not to be professionals or have any special knowledge. Anyone can read what you say here... Including the person or entity you are talking about, or their lawyers. Not naming names is almost always in your best interest.

If you want a guideline, imagine yourself coming back to ask a second question: "I'm being threatened with a lawsuit by someone who says I libeled them on the internet. What should I do?"

This is an entirely public community. No privilege should be assumed to exist or be attached to any information posted herein.

New members should look at the memories section. All defined memories are of importance, and you are expected to know and adhere to the guidelines stated in these posts.

If you have any questions, comments, or complaints, you can contact the community moderator.
