DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - Aug 13, 2012) - Is It Legal To, an online legal forum, recently surpassed 30,000 online members. The website was originally founded as an online law resource for internet users, and contains specific forums dedicated to each US state as well as an international law forum that contains a section for international laws. The forum, which offers free registration and full access, has over 35,000 unique posts in sections ranging from legal articles to discussions about the law. In order to keep things user friendly, the majority of the posts are written in layman's terms.
While many users who come to the site are seeking legal counsel and advice, many visitors are simply curious on the legality of a certain course of action, strange laws, or even visit just to look up a legal term that they don't understand the meaning of. In order to better accommodate these users, IsItLegalTo.com recently updated their online dictionary. The dictionary contains hundreds of definitions and explanations of legal terminology. It is hosted on the website in an effort to help individuals better understand the terms of a legal contract or legal definitions in general.
The administrator of the legal forum says, "IsItLegalTo.com is an effort to help educate community members on the status of the legal world and legal news. A large portion of our 30,000 members and even larger number of visitors are not legal professionals, and for many of them it is the best free legal resource at their disposal. It is paramount for people to understand the legal systems in which they reside and with thousands of new laws introduced each year it is more important than ever to stay up to date on the latest legal happenings. The fact of the matter is that most people will need to hire a lawyer at some point in their life. While we stress that our website is not a substitute for a competent lawyer, we do hope that it can help guide individuals in the right direction."
The site is also a useful resource for individuals whom have careers in the field of law. The site's administrators post multiple legal news topics daily. In order to avoid bias, the topics often stem from a collection of different news sources and outlets.
Is It Legal To also keeps an up-to-date list of contact information for reputable and trustworthy lawyers and legal counsel. Agencies can feel free to e-mail the legal forum (contact information is available via their website) in order to have their agency information listed on the site.
IsItLegalTo.com has been a leading online resource and legal forum for legal news and information since its inception in 2008. The legal forum and its resources can be found at www.IsItLegalTo.com.
