U.K. Answers Only Please As Other Countries Have A Very Different System. Many Thanks,
I'm not in the UK but seeing that you don't have any other answers, I might be able to help. I live in US and would begin by checking the Yellow Pages under Attorneys, there should be a listing for Legal Aid. Or you could probably call any attorney, and they will give you a telephone number to call. Schedule an appointment, they will let you know if you are eligible. Depending on your situation, you may even be able to file for a no fault (uncontested) divorce with minimal costs.
Who Nows Whats Better, Lawyers Or Doctors?
I Don'T Know Now What I Should Do. I Like Both Jobs And Was Wondering What The People Might Think. Which Ever One Wins With The Vote Ill Do.
Either Say Lawyer Or Doctor. Thanks.
Though I agree, it primarily depends on where your personal interests lie, if you are still uncertain, you might think about the purely financial standards. For example, the medical field has been deemed one of the five "recession proof" fields. When times get tough, doctors will still be in demand, while more people will try to settle disputes between themselves and sign contracts, etc. without the help of lawyers. Or, if they decide they are in need of a professional opinion, they will be willing to pay less for it. Many might even hit you up for free legal advice (my neighbor is a lawyer, and he claims that if he charged his friends and acquaintances for the legal advice he provides, he could retire five years early).
Ultimately it is your decision--if you were really leaning towards lawyer you will probably love it and be a great lawyer with a solid foundation--so think hard before you choose. And you don't really need to choose until after you get to college. A good idea is to do what you like in high school, join the clubs you like and do as you will, then look at back at the end of your junior year of high school. Did you do better in biology or other science classes? Did you have fun in clubs like science olympiads or forensic club? Or, did you do better in classes like global history and english? Did you have the best time in mock-trial club or newspaper club? It all depends, but if you try hard and really love it, you will be successful in either career. Good luck!
I'M A Contract Attorney And I Have Just Been Offered A Permanent Position With The Place I'M Working?
So, I'Ve Been Working At A Contract Attorney Position For A Large Firm In Palo Alto For About 6 Months. Finally, The Law Firm Where I Am Working Wants To Offer Me A Position. What, If Any, Are My Obligations To The Agency That Placed Me There? Am I (Legally) Obligated To Tell The Agency? Must The Law Firm Pay The Agency Some Sort Of Commission Or Signing Bonus To The Agency?
I'M Asking All These Questions Because I Get The Impression That The Law Firm Will Not Hire Me If They Have To Pay A Fee To The Agency....
I Would Be Really Happy To Hear What My Rights Are.
I would check if you have any type of contractual agreement with the agency.
Read over all contracts w/ a fine-toothed-come, or get one of your friends to (hey, you're a lawyer after all . . . you guys write these things up!)
If you don't, and it looks like you can take the job no-strings-attached, DO IT. I am one of the unemployed people these days and would do anything for a job in my field.

Maryland Child Labor Laws?
I Work At Tgi Fridays.. In Maryland It Says That As A 17 Year Old, 16 When I Got The Job, I Can'T Work For More Then 12 Hours A Day Including School And Work. Like Tonight I Went From School Til 825-245 And Then Work From 5-1130 Totaling More Then 12 Hours. They Over Work Me All The Time And Like Tonight I Got A 15 Minute Break Which Isn'T The Required 30 Minute Break For Working 5 Straight Hours. Is There Something I Can Do To Get Them In Trouble For This? The Only Thing Is That When I Got The Job I Remember Signing A Paper That Said I Wouldn'T Sue Them For Anything.
Restaurants are notorious labor violators, and Maryland in particular in my experience. And you are correct in that your employer is violating the rules because your combined school and work time is 12.8 hours, and yes they must give you 30 minute breaks, not 15.
And it doesn't matter what you signed: Your under 18 and therefore you cannot legally sign a binding document, rendering any such document worthless. Besides, there are rules that prevent employers from tricking or forcing employees into signing their labor rights away. Labor laws stand regardless of anything they make you sign.
First thing to do is point out this problem to your supervisor, and ask if they can trim your hours so it will comply with the rules. If they don't listen, try to move up to next level. If you get nowhere trying to assert your rights, report them to the MD Division of Labor and Industry (see link for contact info). The department rep will give you a summary of what they can do and how to it will affect you. Also note that "at-will" employment in Maryland has it's limits: They cannot fire you for asserting your legal rights according to the regulations.
While you could sue too, there may not be that much money you would be entitled to collect from them.
