How To Be Proactive In My Studying For The Lsat, Exactly What Needs To Happen With The Lsat To Actually Get In To Law School... I'M Clueless
I Would Love Some Help
Are you near a law school? If so get a tour, sit down w/admissions counselor about their requisites and see if (in the fall, of course) you can sit in on a first year class.
The ABSOLUTE first thing you MUST do is register (free) at www.lsac.org They have a slew of resources regarding law school, LSAT prep and finding the right school.
As far as being proactive on the LSAT you need to practice... there are tons of books with practice exams and even free online courses.
You can take your LSAT nearly any time really, but take it within a year of applying (your last semester of your undergrad if you plan on going right into law school).
Being an English major - you should be used to all the reading, reading, reading... It's a good major for law school. You may also be able to take some "pre law" electives during your undergrad - those may give you some exposure as to what law school profs want.
Just food for thought: WHY do you want to go to law school? WHAT do you want to do with your law degree- practice? be a legal analyst for a TV/Radio/News outlet? Look for a school that has a program that can concentrate your studies on the area you're interested in.

But It Would Be Much Easier If I Could Take All My Law School Classes On Line.
Instead Of Having To Travel To School Or Sleep In A Nearby Dormitory.
Getting the education does ot make you a lawyer no matter where you go to school.
Each state has a Bar association which administers the license to practice law. Contact your state's group and find out what the requirements for a license are. That will tell you what education is necessary and what examinations are required (the Bar Exam) prior to any license.
THEN find out if the school you want to attend has classes that will be accepted toward that license.

You need to work with your treatment providers and whatever social organizations you can find to make the best of the life that you're now facing.
New York State Criminal Law; Assualt In The Second Degree?
Hi, I Have A Few Questions About Criminal Law In New York State.
My Father Was Recently Charged With Assault In The Second.
An Individual Showed Up To His Home And Initated An Altercation With My Father.
My Father Remained In Doors And Allowed His Girlfriend To Tell The Individual To Leave.
To Make This More Understandble The Individual Is The Ex Husband Of My Fathers Girlfriend.
So After Getting Him To Leave And Telling Him He Was Not Welcome Back. Things Seemed To Calm Down.
Now His Girlfriend Left With A Friend. Then The Subject Showed Back Up To The House With A &Quot;Weapon, In The Nature Of A &Quot;Dangerous Instrument&Quot; Which Was A Heavy Walking Stick, Like You Could Buy.
Now My Father Came Out To Tell Him To Leave Ect And They Got Into An Arguement And The Subject Attacked My Father And My Father Swong Back With His &Quot; Walking Cane&Quot; Now They'Re Charging My Father With Assault In The Second Degree. While The Other Individual That Showed Up To His Property Is Getting Off Scott Free. Now The Individual Finally Left, And Then Later &Quot;Went To The Hospital&Quot; He Was Kept Over Night For Two Nights, And Treated For Minor Injuries That Were Not Found Sufficent No Stiches, Breaks Ect.. He Was Kept For Liver And Kidney Problems Associated With His &Quot;Heavy Drinking And Drug Use.
Can They Charge My Father For Fighting Back On His Own Property When The Individual Was Told He Wasn'T Allowed On The Property And Then Returned An Started A Fight. Now Also My Father And His Girlfriend Do Not Use A House Phone They Share A Cell Phone, Which The Girlfriend Had With Her At The Time So He Couldn'T Call For Help From The Police.
Can They Charge Him With Assault?
He Defended Himself And His Home From An Individual Who Was Not Welcomed.
How Is That Grounds For A Fellony Charge For Assault?
Any Help With This Matter Would Be Greatly Apreciated!
I'M Taking &Quot;The Case&Quot; I Prepare, To The Public Defender On His Behalf.
Your father needs a good criminal attorney, not a public defender. Although you have an absolute right to defend yourself, authority figures probably have no idea of the facts of the case. If your post is accurate, it looks as if there are several mitigating factors to get the case, not filed by the prosecutor, or if filed, reduced and even dismissed by a judge/jury. Yes, he can be charged as he inflicted injuries on another, however, he is entitled to his day in court to explain that he was threatened/attacked and simply defended himself. I believe facts that will help his case are: (1) the other fellow came to your father's house, (2) the other fellow initiated the altercation, (3) initially, your father showed restraint in not going outside, (4) the other fellow was told to leave and not come back, (5) the other fellow trespassed and returned with a weapon, (6) your father ask him to leave a second time, (7) your father was attacked and defended himself at his home. I believe that once a prosecutor hears ALL the facts of the case, he/she will elect not to go forward with the case or if so a judge/jury will find that sufficient mitigating factors exist to reduce charges or dismiss the case altogether.
People With Knowledge Of Cali Dui Laws....?
My Roommate Just Got A Dui Last Night And I Had To Experience The Chilling 3Am Phone Call.... Anyway, She'S Ok And They Let Me Pick Her Up From The Police Station Instead Of Making Her Spend The Night In Jail. The Thing Is, When She Was 17 Or 18 She Got A Wet & Reckless (She'S 22 Now), She Can'T Remember If She Was A Minor Or Not When She Got It. I'M Thinking If She Was 17 When It Happened It Would Be Wiped Off Her Record & This Will Be Her First & Only Offense, But If Its Still On Her Record, Does Anyone Know The Consequences She Will Face? Will This Count As Her 2Nd Dui? Any Jail Time? She'S Never Been In Trouble With The Law Before Besides Those 2 Times. ...... Please No Rude Comments, I Am Merely Trying To Get Some More Information For Her Until Her Court Date Next Month. Thanks Guys!
Even if she was a minor it is NOT off her record. The idea that your juvenile record disappears all on it's own once you turn 18 is a myth (at least in California). While juvenile records are confidential, unless she petitioned the court to have the record sealed once she turned 18, the record is still there and is still accessible by the prosecutor's office & law enforcement. So yes, anything in her juvenile record can be used as a prior.
However, if she really was charged with a wet & reckless (as opposed to an actual DUI), then it won't count as a prior for DUI purposes. For a first time DUI she will likely be placed on informal probation for a period of 5 years, be sentenced to around 5 days in jail (she can do work alternative instead of actual jail time), and various fines, costs, etc. totaling around $1500-$2000 (plus attorney fees if she hires a private attorney). Depending on what her blood-alcohol level was, this may increase.
Help With Constitutional Law Case!!?
Okay, So I'M In Con Law And For This Oral Thing I Have Been Assigned A Case And Have To Defend It Against Seven Other Students Who Are The &Quot;Court&Quot; All I Front Of The Class. I'M Very Nervous About It Bc I Tend To Be Horrible At Presenting And Gets Easily Nervous.
The Case I Was Assigned Is: Billy Wants To Wear A Shirt With The Confederate Flag On It To School. Should He Be Aloud?
I'M Defending Billy'S Rights So Here'S What I Got.
1.) First Of It Passes The Tinker Test:
-Doesn'T Disrupt Learning.
-Doesn'T Go Against The School Mission. (The School Mission Is Success For Every Student.)
2.) Also I'M Going To Try To Compare It To Another Case Where Students Won The Right To Wear &Quot;Be Happy Not Gay&Quot; Shirts In Response To Day Of Silence. (Some Might Argue That They'Re Total Different Cases, So I'M Worried About That)
3.) It'S The First Amendment. Freedom Of Speech. No Matter How Offensive, It'S Not &Quot;Fighting&Quot; Words, Meaning No Reasonable Average Person Would Go Up To Billy And Be Violent.
So All In All, Do I Have Everything? What Are Your Opinions? Anything That'S Not Bullet Proof And You Can Counter? Any Suggestions? I'M Really Nervous For This Because The Teacher Will Be Part Of The Court And I Have To Be Able To Fight Off His Questions And Defend Billy'S Right. Also, I Can You Suggest Any Similar Cases And What Are You'Re Thoughts?
I take it you are NOT in law school, since you don't know the difference between allowed and aloud.
What makes you think it doesn't disrupt learning? You think a minority kid at that school is going to feel comfortable with a confederate flag? A symbol of the fight for slavery and these days a racist symbol? You think that doesn't go against the school mission? If you are going to defend Billy, you have to respond to those arguments. It is fighting words and free speech in school is not absolute. Or anywhere else for that matter. You can try to argue that it's just a symbol of the south, historical. But you will have to counter that it's often a symbol of racism.
Doing legal work means figuring out the arguments of the other side and coming up with response to those arguments. That's thinking like a lawyer.
