Legal Information Is Not Legal Advice: This site provides information about the law designed to help students cope with their own legal needs. But legal information is not the same as legal advice — the application of law to an individual’s specific circumstances. Although we try to make sure our information is accurate and useful, we recommend you consult a lawyer if you want professional assurance that our information, and your interpretation of it, is appropriate to your particular situation.
