Is A Career As A Psychiatrist Or A Criminal Lawyer More Beneficial?
I Know Both Take A Lot Of Schooling But It Seems Like Its Worth It In The Long Run, I Would Love To Be A Criminal Lawyer And Defend People But I'M Not Sure How Secure The Job Is And A Psychiatrist Is A Lot Of School But I Would Really Love To Help People And It Seems Like A Job That Will Always Be Needed. What Do You Reccomend? Any Answers Or Info Will Be Helpful Please!
Neither one. You'd be wasting your time and your money.
A psychiatrist is a medical doctor with a specialty in psychiatry. That would take you about 10 years in college and medical school and you would run up a debt of about $250,000.00. And psychiatrists are very few and far between. You would have to create your own business as they are generally not employed by clinics or hospitals. So, you would be on your own.
As far as being a lawyer, perhaps you are not up to date about the legal field. The legal field is a total glut and has been for several years. That means lawyers are a dime a dozen. Law schools are turning out new lawyers by the thousands every year and there are no jobs for them,.
First, you go to law school and graduate. All law students in all law schools study the same thing. They all learn the basics of all the law, so trying to specialize in something like criminal defense would be almost impossible. Then you try to get a job with a law firm as education without several years of practical experience is worthless. Here's a clue: LAW FIRMS ARE NOT HIRING! It is virtually impossible for new law graduates to get a job. About the only thing they can get is doing contract research at minimum wage.
There are many law graduates now suing their law schools because of the promises of jobs and now they find it impossible to get one.
A recent news story on TV showed a top graduate of a New York Law School was suing them because he could not get hired by anybody in the city of New York. He was working as a waiter in a pizza shop making minimum wage. His debt from law school was $230,000.00. He will be 65 by the time he gets that paid off. If that's what you want to do, ENJOY!
Do Canadian Lawyers Sue A Lot For Medical Malpractice?
Serious Question Given That It Is A Single-Payer Country. Is Medical Malpractice Suits In Canada, Where The Government Is The Defendant, As Rampant As Medical Malpractice Suits Are Here In The States?
After Obesity And Smoking, The Biggest Medical Expense In The Us Is Due To Tort Law.
There are several for this...
1. Loser-pays. Canada has a loser-pays legal system. If you sue someone and loose, a judge may declare the case 'without merit' and order the plaintiff to pay the defendants legal and/or the court costs. It avoids 'blackmail' lawsuits which you get in the US where the doctors/insurance settles merely to avoid the cost of a lawsuit.
2. No medical damages. Because of universal health care, you typically can't sue for any medical costs to correct the issue since they would be covered. Any medical costs you suffer as a result are automatically covered. Also, since you are covered, you don't need to sue immediately in order to get money for care.
3. Liability limits. In Canada there are absolute liability limits on non-deliberate damages for pain and suffering. This is based on inflation and sits around $330,000. Loss of work damages are not so limited, but typically costs issue maximums of around $1M -- the general reason being that if you were in a profession which could earn much more than this... you'd carry your own insurance.
4. Better regulation/certification. Canadian doctors are better monitored and because the province owns all the hospitals and there are a limited number of provinces... you typically don't get incompetent doctors moving around. Doctor rating sites, licensing agencies (college of physicians), etc. make it much easier to deal with a problem doctor.
5. Arbitration. Most provinces require malpractice claims to go through an arbitration process of some sort. The province usually wants to settle (since it will be paying the medical costs anyway) and the lawyers usually want to settle (since they are capped in awards anyway). Most judges are unlikely to award much more than the arbitrator decides anyway. Usually in these cases, fault is fairly obvious and there is little reason to draw things out in court.

Question About Immigration Lawyers?
Let'S Say I Live In The Us But I Want To Move To Canada. I Wanted To Use An Immigration Lawyer To Help Me With The Process. Should I Contact An Immigration In Canada? Or An Immigration Lawyer In The Us?
Also, If I Have To Contact A Canadian Immigration Lawyer, Does The Lawyer Need To Be Located In The City Where I Want To Move? Let'S Say I Want To Move To Vancouver Bc But My Immigration Lawyer Operates In Toronto?
You can contact an immigration lawyer in either country. Obviously there are more immigration lawyers who specialize in immigrating to Canada who live in Canada, but there are a few Canadian lawyers who go to other countries to serve local populations (one of my old immigration law professors practiced in South Korea for five years). The harder part is tracking them down in the particular city you live in.
If you contact an immigration lawyer in Canada, they do not need to be located in the city where you want to move. The vast majority of paths to immigration to Canada are controlled by the federal government and are identical no matter where you go. However, there has lately been a shift to beefing up a program called the "Provincial Nominee Program," wherein individual provinces can make requests for people with specific job backgrounds. Therefore, a lawyer in Toronto, for example, would likely know more about Ontario's Provincial Nominee Program than a lawyer in Vancouver.
