Users involved in illegal activities will be banned immediately. Do not post derogatory photos, videos and other media in the main feed. NO trolling is permitted.

Our goal is to always work to improve our services and develop new features to make our services and resources beneficial to you and our circle. This may result in updating our Terms and Policies at times. We will inform you of any changes before they go into effect. Once any updated Terms and Policies are in effect, you will be bound by them if you continue to access the ParalegalCircle website.
We also invite you to make suggestions on how we can improve our website, services, etc. This circle was created with you in mind with hopes of making our lives as Paralegals just a wee bit easier. However, we are under no obligation to compensate you, and we are under no obligation to keep the suggestions confidential.

Our aggregate liability arising out of or relating to these Terms and Polices or ParalegalCircle’s services or resources, will not exceed the greater of $100.
We try to provide clear rules so that we can limit or hopefully avoid disputes between you and ParalegalCircle. If a dispute does arise, however, it's useful to know up front where it can be resolved and what laws will apply. For any claim, cause of action, or dispute you have against ParalegalCircle, they must be brought in the Northern District of Texas and be governed by Texas law.
If any portion of these Terms and Policies are found to be unenforceable, the remaining portion will remain in full force and effect. If we fail to enforce any of these Terms and Policies, it will not be considered a waiver. Any amendment to or waiver of these Terms and Policies must be made in writing and signed by us. All of our rights and obligations under these Terms and Policies are freely assignable by us in connection with a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, or by operation of law or otherwise.
We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you. Indemnification. If anyone brings a claim, cause of action, or dispute against ParalegalCircle related to your services, actions, content or information on the ParalegalCircle website, you agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from and against all damages, losses, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable legal fees and costs) related to any such claim, cause of action, or dispute.
