Legal Information Is Not Legal Advice: This site provides information about the law designed to help students cope with their own legal needs.

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.
