What’s How to Legal?

How to Legal

How to Legal is about using the good side of the Internet to combat the dark side in this era of fake news, misinformation and/or defamation. It’s about becoming informed, should you choose to become informed.

How to Legal is about knowing where to look so you can verify facts, news, and information about the justice system so you won’t be duped or led astray by fake news, bad actors, oath breaking lawyers, or judges, or by politicians who will say anything to feed their voter base even if they know it’s BS.
