Veritas CXVI

Today's Truth:  Legal advice is a generic term that covers the need for knowledge on legal matters. It entails using knowledge of the law to determine courses of legal action for those seeking such advice. In essence, telling another person what legal path they should take or even assisting them in drawing up legal documents. If legal advice is dispensed without the necessary attorney's license, it counts as the crime of unauthorized practice of law and is a criminal offense.
