Hi! Welcome to Explaining the Law!
I’ve been a lawyer for more than 25 years (see my CV here), and between my law practice, and teaching as a law professor, I’ve become pretty good at providing clear, easy-to-understand, plain English explanations of law, legal decisions, and other legally-related things.
I’ve been asked if there will be a specific topic, or practice area, on which we will focus here, and the answer is ‘no’. My areas of expertise are Internet and tech law and policy, and family law with an emphasis on the rights of children to have an ongoing relationship with both parents after the disuniting of the family (also known as ‘fathers’ rights’), however my background in legislative authoring and construction also provides me with an ability to tackle breaking down most anything from the legal realm into digestible, bite-sized chunks.
So pull up a chair and let’s get started!
Anne P. Mitchell,
Attorney at Law
