This is a proposed site "for experts in law [and others]". However, seems like experts are not that interested: https://www.reddit.com/r/law/comments/2qxnpq/any_interest_in_stackexchanges_area_51_proposal/
They've even identified a bunch of the example questions here as being legal advice, despite our claim that "the site is not for specific legal advice."
I see no value for lawyers to participate...
The whole idea is incompatible with "No legal advice."
Seems like the vast majority of example questions are straight-up legal advice.
I wouldn't spend the time answering any of these questions. It would take too long to do properly.
To get substantial participation in a forum like this from lawyers, you'd have to go to every one of the 51 regulators of legal practice in the US to issue some kind of guidance approving the scheme. Short of that, most aren't going to risk their license to participate, and the ones that will aren't necessarily the ones you want.
If I want to know what statutes and cases are relevant to a particular issue, I've already got better resources for that.
These sites already exist.
I am worried that we may not be able to attract experts.
