How Do I Find And Apply To Intern At A Law Firm?
I'M A Junior In High School And Live In The Los Angeles Area. Becoming A Lawyer Is What I Aspire To Do And I'Ve Been Thinking About Interning At A Law Office Since My Sophomore Year But Sports Took Up Most Of My Time. Although, Now I Feel Ready To Find An Internship To Help Me Gain Experience But I Have No Clue Where To Start.
As far as I know . . . . law firms do not have interns.
They only hire top law school graduates who have passed their bar exams and are ready to go to work and know what they are supposed to do,.
Lawyers have to be very strict with their time (EVERY MINUTE) so that they can have billable hours to charge their clients. They keep a time sheet on their desk and every minute has to be accounted for. They do not even take coffee breaks. Without billable hours to charge their clients, they don't make any money. And they don't have time to train any new lawyers or interns.
Should I Become A Divorce Lawyer?
I'M So Interested In This Career
I Just Want To Ask: How Many Years Will It Take In College?
And Can U Give Me A Brief Explanation On How This Job Works?
Ex...Will I Talk To Couples? Will I Be Their Judge? Will I Have To Talk To
I Need Advice Please!
Becoming a lawyer means that you will spend four years in college, and then another three years in law school, assuming you go full-time. Then you need to take the Bar exam for the state in which you will be working.
No, you won't be working with couples. Since the couple is getting divorced, each person gets his/her own lawyer to work with him/her, and they basically fight against each other, much of the time. It is your job to represent your client against his/her former spouse and to get as much for him or her as possible. The same is true of the lawyer working for the other side. So you will be working for (and with) your client, and will also meet with the lawyer for the other spouse, since that person has representation and cannot be approached directly.
You will not be the judge (unless you are eventually appointed to the bench as a family court judge). You and the other lawyer will take adversarial positions, and there will be a judge who will decide after hearing both of your positions.
You will usually NOT talk to the kids. Child custody will be one of the issues which will need to be decided, but that decision is usually made by the judge. As far as what is in the best interests of the children, you wouldn't be considered a fair judge of that, so while you will usually make recommendations as to what your client wants, those things are determined by testimony from third parties (child protective services, therapists, etc.) and decided by the judge.

How To Get Into Yale Law School?
Hi Everyone, I Want To Know What Is Required To Attend Yale Law School. I Know You Have To Be Smart, So Please Do Not Write That, I Would Like Serious Answers. What I Need To Know Are What Classes I Should Take While Attending College, Pre- Requisites That Are Required, Internship Ideas, Lsat Scores Etc. Thanks So Much For Your Help.
There isn't a specific formula for getting into Yale Law. People come from many different paths and walks of life at YLS; there isn't a specific class you should take, or a major you should have. What you need to possess is a stellar academic record (and I mean stellar--student admitted to YLS typically have GPAs of 3.8 or above), an exceptional LSAT score (172+, preferably 175+), excellent recommendations, and a résumé that shows involvement (no specific type of internship is preferred over another--what you should focus on is demonstrating commitment to and leadership in two or three specific causes over a number of years, rather than sporadic participation in 10+ activities).
You will also have to devote some serious time and thought to the "softs" in your application: Your personal statement, résumé, addenda, and letters of recommendation. Of particular importance will be the personal statement and LORs. When you are competing for admission into the top echelons, where everyone has GPAs of 3.9+ and LSATs in the 172+ range, it's the softs that set you apart and make you memorable.
However, even with all that, admission will not be a definite thing. You will still face some tough competition if you're looking for admission into Yale, because competition for law schools of that caliber is intense for anyone, regardless of their credentials. Yale has the lowest admissions percentage of all ABA-approved law schools (just over 7%) for a reason.
Focus on doing the following during your academic years in order to create a solid applicant profile that will put you at an advantage in the law school application process:
1. Pick a college major that will require a lot of reading- and research-intensive classes (for example: political science, history, economics, or sociology). This will not only prepare you for law classes (which themselves are incredibly research- and reading-heavy), but it will also demonstrate to law schools, when you apply, that you can handle the academic load of law school.
2. Keep an upward grade trend throughout college. This means that your grades either get stronger as you go through school, or start off strong and remain there for all 4 years of college. Most law schools will want to see GPAs of 3.5 or above (the closer you can get to a 4.0, the better). If you get a B during your freshman year, it's not a deal-breaker; your focus should be to keep your grades as high as you can get them.
3. Take a challenging class load: Intro classes are okay for freshman and (maybe) sophomore year of college, but once you get to junior and senior year, your focus should be on upper-level classes and seminars that allow you to really hone in and focus on your specific interests within the major. And, as always, keep your grades up throughout.
4. Establish rapport with your professors (particularly during your junior and senior years of college). You can do this by attending office hours, working for them as a research assistant, and talking to them after class. They will be the ones writing your letters of recommendation, and will only be able to write effective, overwhelmingly positive ones is if they have specific, anecdotal knowledge of you and can favorably compare you to other students in your class.
5. Work on your extracurriculars. Don't worry about being a part of 30 student groups; instead, focus on 2 or 3. Become a part and get involved during your freshman and sophomore years, and then obtain leadership positions in them during your junior and senior years.
6. Take the LSAT either the summer after junior year or the fall of your senior year of college. This will allow you to get the LSAT out of the way and apply as early in the admissions cycle as possible, which is incredibly beneficial to your overall chances.
I would also not focus exclusively on YLS as your only law school choice. Branch out a little. Research law schools and become familiar with their LSAT and GPA requirements, as well as their acceptance percentages. A great place to start is the LSAC Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools: http://officialguide.lsac.org
I know I gave you a lot of info--I hope some of it helps! Feel free to PM me if you have any additional questions--I'm glad to help!

I Have A ? About Child Support / Visitation?
Ok So Im Planning On Putting My Babys Dad On Child Support Because Obviously He Dosnt Know How To Step Up To The Plate And Be A Responsible Father But Anyways. Hes Not Working... So How Would That Work? Dont They Base It Off Of What He Makes? Well How Can They Do That If Hes Not Working? Or When He Did Work He Only Worked 10 Hrs A Week? Is There Such Thing As A Minimum That I Can Get? And Also.. My Friend Was Talking To Me And Said That If I Sign Him Up For Child Support I Have To Give Him Visitation Not That Thats A Problem I Just Wanted To Know If We Could Do It Like That Or Go To Court? Any Advice Would Be Helpfull Thanks
Here's an education on it first hand:
1. Visitation is separate from child support. The court does not entertain both at the same time. So you go ahead and sign up with the clerk of court with birth certificate in hand showing he's the dad. You get it set up. A court day is set for him to show up. He will. The judge you and him will meet. The judge will give him this choice:
You pay child support or go to jail. Or he can sign off on the child and turn him/her over to you with no support. But he will have no say so from that point on. The judge will tell him he must get a job or risk jail for non-payment. If he doesn't the judge will issue his order of child support soon after according to minimum wage meaning it will be roughly $425. per mo. for him.
My son had this done so I know the score on this one.
2. Now on his visitation. You do not have to hand over the child to him. Not until he pays a lawyer to set up his visitation schedule through the court system. He will be paying you child support and he will think 'hey I'm paying for this kid I want to see him' well the proper and legal way is HE has to set up visitation. Once he pays to do this legally then you must hand over the child to him during the visitation court ordered schedule. But up until he does this NO you do not have to hand over the kid to him.
Now once the baby is born you are very fertile. Do Not have sexual intercourse until you get yourself on some form of birth control. Birth control can be had for as little as $20. per month. Ask your doctor for a precription. It's much cheaper to avoid having another baby to add to your stress and financial worries if you avoid it by taking something. Be responsible.
He could run and the courts not find him. Yes you could end up paying for the baby all by yourself for now on. But you choose to go this route in life and didn't prepare yourself with birth control. Obviously he didn't either. So this is the low down on your question.
