What Is A Typical Day Like For A Non-Litigation Lawyer?
It Seems Like They Must Be Doing A Lot Of Paperwork. Filing Motions And Stuff.. But I Hear They Have Paralegals Ect To Do That For Them. So What Does A Real Estate Atorney Or Enviromental Lawyer Do All Day?
Im Considering A Career Change, But I Want To Feel Like My Time Is Spent Doing Things That Are Productive And Important. Right Now Im A Software Developer, But 90% Of My Time Is Spent On Nonsense: Going To Unnecessary Meetings, Filling Out Request Forms, Writing Documentation That Will Never Be Read.. I Need Something More Worthwhile To Do With My Life.
So basically what you're saying is, what do lawyers do if they aren't in court I assume. There can be a lot of litigation in real estate and environmental law. Real estate lawyers can spend a lot of their time reviewing and/or drawing up complicated land sale contracts and transactions (e.g. dotting i's and adding magical legalese like "time is of the essence"). But they can also spend a great deal of time litigating if there is a land or contract dispute. (The majority of cases I have to read in my contracts class involve some type of land dispute.) Many times, real estate agents draw up land sales contracts so the only time they will need a lawyer is if things get sticky and something might need to be litigated or there is a complicated land contract that needs to be made specifically for the clients needs like the sales of skyscrapers, hotels, large tracts of land, etc.
Environmental lawyers might spend a lot of time writing up drafts of bills that they would like their state representative to submit to the legislature. They also might spend a lot of time researching and dealing with tort claims arising out of environmental problems (like in the movies, "Erin Brokovich," and "A Civil Action").
Other things that lawyers do other than litigation is meeting with clients, drawing up complaints and petitions, discussing settlement deals with the other parties, writing demand letters, research, preparing memos and briefs, doing depositions, etc.
Which Career Have Better Working Conditions:Law Or Civil Engineering???
Yes,I Mean Work In Office With Air Conditioning,Well Dressed Etc...I Have To Decide Which One I Go To Study...
Ok. It's a novel way to choose your career. I would have normally suggested doing some voluntary work at a law firm then an engineering firm just to get some idea of what it will be like. Usually a month is enough. Be clear to your employer about your aim. If you are a diligent enough worker, then you'd usually be remembered when you graduate. Talk to your university entry co-ordinator/admin about delaying your entry until you make up your mind. It's your life and your money, so don't be pushed into doing something you won't like. They'll understand, they were young once too.
Working conditions vary according to the employer. Some law firms prefer that their partners go out and do their own pre-trial work and pro-bono work (eg. giving free advice to elderly folk about their wills). This gives them more exposure and a better handle on people. Some law firms will concentrate on corporate tax or real estate instead, which means more desk work. It really depends on what the law firm's overall aim for clientele are.
As for Civil Engineering, there is no such thing as a permanent desk job. Eventually you just have to visit the site because the guys working the site will have hundreds of questions for you. You usually want to inspect the quality of work for yourself anyway. Also, the guys working the site will usually have lots of clever ideas on how to make the work go smoother.
Good luck. Go out. Be observant, both outwards and inwards.
Can Anyone Tell Me The Difference Among≫ Lawyer ≫ Attorney ≫ Counselor≫? I'M Brazilian And Hear These Names To?
Refer To Someone With The Same Profession.
I'D Also Want To Know What Is The Meaning Of Some Capital Letters, That Come After Someone'S Name In The Movies, For Instance, Michael Jones, A.C.D. What Does Is It Mean?
I'M Grateful To Whom Help Me.
Sorry For My English Mistakes.
The lawyer, attorney, counselor thing, is because for some odd reason the English language has a lot of words for one thing. Someone told me that English is the hardest language to learn. Lawyer and attorney are the same thing, and they're only used for that profession. Counselor on the other hand has other professions it's used to refer to. Counselor can also be the name of a person who helps you and talks to you, like a therapist. I don't know about your other question though. I've wondered about that too, but I have no idea. Sorry! Hope this helped some!
Pa Custody/Visitation Laws?
Can Anyone Tell Me, Or Provide A Link To, Detailed Information On The Way Pa Deals With Custody And Visitation, And What Helps Them Determine Who May Gain Custody, And What Limits Would Exist With Visitation?
what makes a judge determine who gets custody of a child, would be who could provide the better home, in most cases it is in the mothers favor, however everything is taken into factor, like does the mother have a job to support her family that she is wanting to take care of,does the mother have adequate living for the child,does the mother do drugs?etc etc.
if you are wanting to gain custody you need to prove all these things plus more also including why the mother should not have custody.
however if you make more money than the mother , a more stable place to live , lets say you make more than her , and you have lived where you have for quite some time , that can be taken in consideration as a more"stable place", save every recipt to prove you have made an effort for this child , so that when she says you don't you can prove that you do.
and if you cannot get custody , make sure you get joint!!
call a lawyer in your arrea , most of the time they give a free consultation , you will need one !!
Do Top Law Firms Do Irs Records Checks For Paralegal Job Applicants?
I'm Near To Graduating From Paralegal School In Atlanta W/ Excellent Grades. I Have A B. A. In English From A Top School. However, Due To Injuries From When I Was A Cocktail Waitress, I Have Had To Support My Self As An Exotic Entertainer, As This Was The Only Job That Would Let Me Take Off If My Injuries Flared Up. (I Had Been A Successful Sales Rep Prior To This, But Was Burned Out On That Job.}
If The Top, Better-Paying Firms Require An Irs Background Check, It Will Definitely Come Up That I've Been An Entertainer For The Past Eight Years, And I'm Afraid They Won't Accept Or Care About My Reasons For Doing It.
Do Top, Large Firms Do This Irs Job Record Search? If So, Will My Legitimate Reasons For Dancing Count Or Am I Forever Prevented From Working At The Big Atlanta Law Firms?
NO THEY DO NOT.
Some do credit checks but that stuff does not appear.
The only companies that do these big background checks are for those people that need top security clearance.
Ga Labor Laws: Where Can I Get A Hard Copy Of Ga Labor Laws?
I'm Looking For A Hard Copy --A Manual, Etc.-- Of Labor And Employment Laws For The State Of Georgia. I've Looked On The Dept. Of Labor Website, But I Can't Seem To Find Any Links. Help Please!
I would suggest going to the Georgia State Senate page and looking for a law index and then going to the website.
My second suggestion, would be to go to a labor attorney and ask him/her where they order there books from and then do the same.
Last suggestion is the Library of Congress.
