The Law Library Staff prepares "Research Frequently Asked Questions" (FAQs) for the convenience of our users to provide access to a variety of sources addressing particular points of law. These are general legal information sources, and are not to be construed as a substitute for personal legal advice from an attorney. Please seek legal counsel to help you determine the applicability of any of the information in these resources to your specific situation. The Law Library makes no recommendation as to whether you should purchase any services offered by the websites contained in this FAQ.

This website contains information on obtaining your credit report, motor vehicle lemon laws, home buying and home ownership, consumer tips for investors in securities and commodities, consumer credit, and other consumer law topics. Our FAQ on Consumer Credit Law also has materials in this area.
