TeachLegal.com was founded on the principle of “purposeful and meaningful education”.

Shawn Smith, the founder of TeachLegal.com, a university lecturer and attorney, realized that the perfect platform to reach the most people outside of traditional classrooms was to use the internet and other electronic platforms as mechanisms to teach and inform.  With that in mind TeachLegal.com was born as a means of educating  people on issues relating to consumer protection, credit rehabilitation, fair debt collection and bankruptcy. TeachLegal.com seeks to empower all Americans with the information and knowledge to be in a position of strength when making legal decisions.
