Legal sceptical opening posts

Every sentient being seems to have a blog of late. I am interested in how sceptical thought and the legal system interact. This is on a jurisprudential level as well as a humours level.

One main area is in the realm of consumer protection legislation. How do we protect the public from scammers and charlatans?

Do the laws covering the fields of quackery and alternative medicines operate to legitimise rather than to protect the public?

These are important questions that I hope to address. I have no delusions that I will be capable of forming an answer as the size of these ultimate questions is beyond the scope of this writer.
