Law and Legal Advice

StackExchange has a Law community. But I want to include legal advice too, like https://old.reddit.com/r/legaladvice/, https://old.reddit.com/r/legaladvicecanada, https://old.reddit.com/r/AusLegal, https://old.reddit.com/r/LegalAdviceUK, https://old.reddit.com/r/legaladviceireland, https://old.reddit.com/r/LegalAdviceEurope.

Too many links, too little content here, -1. The description of what you are proposing should be self-contained in the question here. Nobody should have to follow links to get pertinent information to the proposal. Olin Lathrop‭ about 1 month ago

I'm declining this one. Allowing unqualified armchair lawyers to purport to give legal advice is a recipe for a legal migraine, which is not something we're able or willing to deal with at least until we have a legal team, and possibly not even then.

Sorry, but this one just isn't workable.

A community about law would be fine, just like one about medicine would be fine, but we can't take on the, err, legal liabilities of giving professional advice in either area. Monica Cellio‭ about 1 month ago

@MonicaCellio Please go ahead and edit my post accordingly. Out of curiosity, why doesn't ArtOfCode's solicitudes apply to Reddit? Chgg Clou‭ about 1 month ago

Asking for legal advice from random people on the internet is a bad idea. Many lawyers are willing to consult for free over legal matters, and it is often a better idea to do so. It is overall a bad idea to have such a thing on any online platform, where basically any unqualified person can provide dubious advice on matters that could mean life or death. Reddit has legal resources, and allows anyone to make communities and post whatever they want, so it exists. Razetime‭ about 1 month ago
