The library provides general information about the law which is designed only to help users of the library learn more about their own legal needs. But general legal information is not the same as legal advice - true legal advice is the application of local and federal law to an individual's specific circumstances, and true legal advice can only be given by a lawyer. Library users are responsible for obtaining such advice from their own legal counsel.
