Brad Bannon on Supreme Court back in session

Scott interviews Washington DC political strategist Brad Bannon

(Huffington Post)

First Amendment cases top the Supreme Court’s docket as it begins a new term with a new justice and three women on the bench for the first time.

The court will look at provocative anti-gay protests at military funerals and a California law banning the sale of violent video games to children. These cases worry free speech advocates, who fear the court could limit First Amendment freedoms.

The funeral protest lawsuit, over signs praising American war deaths, “is one of those cases that tests our commitment to the First Amendment,” said Steven Shapiro, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Another case involves a different aspect of the First Amendment, the government’s relationship to religion. The justices will decide whether Arizona’s income tax credit scholarship program, in essence, directs state money to religious schools in violation of the constitutional separation of church and state.

Am I giving legal advice when I use www.LawCentral.com.au?

QUESTION: Am I giving legal advice when I use www.LawCentral.com.au?

ANSWER: The author of all legal documents at LawCentral is the lawyer that puts the document up at LawCentral. The lawyer keeps copyright in the document. No one else is legally the author. The lawyer has the sole control and ownership of that document.

Therefore, the answer to your question is usually no. It is the lawyer that provides the document on the website. It is the lawyer that has created the logic flow and set up the questions. It is the lawyer that has written all the hints to explain how the document works.

The lawyer puts the document up at LawCentral so that a locked PDF document is created. That document is locked so that it can not be altered. That gives the lawyer confidence that the client can NOT alter the document. An altered document may destroy the effect of the document.

Law firms can only put their documents up at LawCentral if they provide a minimum of $1.5m worth of the law firm’s Professional Indemnity insurance on each and every legal document created at LawCentral.

The person that puts in the answers to the questions on the web site is just a mere scribe. If you are only a mere scribe – i.e. filing in forms and questions – then generally you are not giving legal advice.

“… the court held that work of the mere clerical kind, such as filling out of skeletal blanks … should be generally regarded as the legitimate right of any layman because it involves nothing more or less than the clerical operations of the now almost obsolete scrivener.” cited in Computer Accounting & Tax Pty Ltd [2007] WASC 184 (13 August 2007).
However, you need to be careful that you do not interpret a question or explain one of LawCentral’s hints. If you do then you may be giving legal advice if you are producing a legal document that only lawyers are allowed to prepare.

There seems to be some latitude when it comes to setting up Unit Trusts, Family Trusts and Self Managed Superannuation Funds. Most are set up by accountants and advisers on behalf of their clients. LawCentral prepares over 1,000 Division 7A Loan Agreements most of those are prepared by Accountants on behalf of their clients. Provided you are only acting as a mere scribe you generally are not giving legal advice.

However, if you prefer, stick the client in front of your computer to answer the questions.
