Why do we care about the distinction between legal info or legal advice?  When you end up giving legal advice, you can put your organization at risk and you can also cause the client serious problems. For example, your organization may risk:

  • Damage to its reputation
  • Potential legal liability
  • Being fined by the Law Society

You can also cause  the client serious problems if they do not get the legal help they need to solve their problems. For example, they can end up incurring additional time, costs and emotional/psychological distress in dealing with their problems.
