A quick definition of legal action:

Legal action means taking a problem to court or to a legal authority to get help. It's like asking a teacher or parent to help solve a problem, but instead, you ask a judge or lawyer to help you. Legal action can be used to protect your rights or to get something you deserve. It can also mean any action taken before the law.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: Legal action refers to the act of bringing a lawsuit, prosecution, or judicial proceeding to obtain a legal remedy or to protect a legal right.

For example, if someone is injured in a car accident and wants to sue the other driver for damages, they would need to take legal action by filing a lawsuit in court. Similarly, if a company believes that a competitor has infringed on their patent, they may take legal action by filing a lawsuit to protect their intellectual property rights.

Legal action can also refer to any action taken before the law, such as filing a complaint with a government agency or seeking an injunction to stop someone from engaging in harmful behavior.

Overall, legal action is a formal process that involves using the legal system to resolve disputes and protect legal rights.

@georgiapeach88: I actually remember you from some of the first times I was on this site
Just out of curiosity: Do we think it's fair to say that the percentage of users of those site who continue to use it after their 1L starts, for those users who actually went or go to law school, is <1%?

@Zenaida-Macroura: there’s no reason to worry ☮️ ❤️ but I/we get it! For me I’m super worried about not having any money coming in for a while plus no sugar mommy/daddy (yet!) to take care of me!

I always think back to when I was anxious waiting for my lsat results one take. I went to the park and a parent let me play with their kid. I fixed his truck and he was hyped! He told me to “have a good time!” when I left haha. He’s our spirit animal!
