This proposal is not meant to be US-Centric. It should be like Travel for example; it should be used to ask questions about all law systems worldwide.
However, probably the initial audience will come mostly from the US. How do we prevent US-centrism that could lead to unfriendliness to visitors from other countries?
I don't mean you shouldn't ask too many questions about the US. In fact, you should ask as many questions as you like, as long as they are good quality and provide added value to the side. What I mean is how can we prevent making the site as a whole US-centric, which is observed on, for example, Academia, and to lesser extent on Workplace. The negative symptoms I observe there:
- not tagging US-specific questions as [US]
- assuming that the circumstances are obvious, while they are US-Specific (specific labour law, regulations about academia, financing public services etc.)
- using cryptic language (very specific terms without explanation, X-words that nobody outside understand etc.)
- downvoting questions that apply to the circumstances other than meant but not specified by the OP (because the AP is outside US)
