Description of Service

LawStar provides a platform to provide law students, law firms, and companies an automated software solution for preparing legal citations. When you set up your account, you are enrolling in a free trial. If you do not cancel within the trial period, you will automatically be enrolled in your chosen subscription at the end of the trial.

Autorenewal: Your subscription renews automatically on a rolling monthly or yearly basis depending on your selected preferences. You consent to LawStar automatically charging the payment method on file the subscription cost plus applicable tax per month or per year until you cancel your subscription. To the extent permitted by law, subscription fees are not refundable. You will receive a notice between 15 and 45 days before your subscription automatically renews. 

Cancellation: You can cancel your subscription at any time by visiting our support page and completing the steps to cancel or by emailing Cancellations will take effect at the next billing period. Following cancellation, you will continue to have access to your subscription until the end of your current billing period.

No Legal Advice Provided

At no time do we review your citations for legal sufficiency, draw legal conclusions, provide legal advice, opinions or recommendations about your legal rights, remedies, defenses, options, selection of forms, or strategies, or apply the law to the facts of your particular situation. LawStar is not a law firm and may not perform services performed by an attorney. LawStar and its Services are not substitutes for the advice or services of an attorney. If you need legal advice for your specific problem, or if your specific problem is too complex to be addressed by our tools, you should consult a licensed attorney in your area.

When you open an account to use or access certain portions of the Site, Applications, or the Services, you must provide complete and accurate information as requested on the registration form. You will also be asked to sign up through your university email. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account. You may not use a third party’s account at any time. You agree to notify LawStar immediately of any unauthorized use of your account. LawStar shall not be liable for any losses you incur as a result of someone else’s use of your account, either with or without your knowledge. You may be held liable for any losses incurred by LawStar, our affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents and representatives due to someone else’s use of your account.

The Site, Applications, and all materials, documents or forms provided on or through your use of the Site or Applications are provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis. To the fullest extent permitted by law, LawStar expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement.

LawStar makes no warranty that:

Limitation of Liability 

Except as prohibited by law, you will hold LawStar and its officers, directors, employees, and agents harmless for any indirect, punitive, special, incidental, or consequential damage, however it arises (including attorneys' fees and all related costs and expenses of litigation and arbitration, or at trial or on appeal, if any, whether or not litigation or arbitration is instituted), whether in an action of contract, negligence, or other tortious action, or arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, including without limitation any claim for personal injury or property damage, arising from this Agreement and any violation by you of any federal, state, or local laws, statutes, rules, or regulations, even if LawStar has been previously advised of the possibility of such damage.

Except as prohibited by law, if there is liability found on the part of LawStar, it will be limited to the amount paid for the products and/or services, and under no circumstances will there be consequential or punitive damages. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of punitive, incidental or consequential damages, so the prior limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
