How To Become An Employment Lawyer?
Hey, I Want To Become An Employment Lawyer But I Dont Know How To Go About It. What Courses Do I Take In Law School? And How Do I Get Jobs After I Finish? What Is The Nature Of Work Like?
During law school, you should intern at a firm that does the kind of work you're interested in learning about. You need to gain experience in the field. It may sound strange, but law school doesn't really teach you how to be a lawyer. You can take classes that deal with employment law issues, but the truth is that employers are most impressed with work experience. So your internships will be vitally important if you're going to be competitive for jobs in that area when you graduate.
Here's what I suggest. Keep your GPA up in college. Then do well on the LSAT and get into the best law school you can. During your first year of law school, focus all of your time and energy on studying. First year grades are incredibly important so keep focused. If at all possible, do not work during your first year. Just study. During your first summer break, intern at a law firm that handles employment law issues. During your second year, you may consider working part time at a firm. You may think that working during the school year is difficult, but I promise that you can handle it. Then during your second summer break, you can build up your experience by interning at another firm. If you're lucky, by the time you're in your last year of law school, one of the firms you worked for may make an offer. Even if nothing pans out, you'll have valuable experience in the area of law you want to eventually practice in. Plus, you'll have valuable contacts who can provide references for you in any future job search.
I interned at a small litigation firm during law school, and my experience with employment law is limited mainly to sexual harassment type cases. I found this type of work to be really interesting. However, you have to be very organized and on top of things. Details are everything. The opposing counsel is waiting to pounce on any error you make.
If you do as I suggested above, you'll see for yourself whether or not the work is something you'll enjoy. Good luck.

But This Was None Of My Weed Or Stuff, I Shouldent Get Charged.. Do I Have Any Rites? Or Anything Anyone Can Tell Me To Help Me Out Abit. I Was Talking To A Laywer And They Just Told Me To Not Say Anything.. Anything Would Help
It's serious stuff, and you really need to seek legal advice with a lawyer. If you're still at home with your parents, you may have to bring up with them, cause it'll be worse later. If they're supportive of you (they will be angry with you about this), however, as parents, they are always concerned about their kids, and they'll want to help out by finding solutions.
(Just a thought: Through your lawyer, you can negotiate some plea, if you testify against your boyfriend [you may consider doing this before your BF finds his own attorney, and uses it against you....there's always a chance that something like this can happen against you]....one lb. is alot of weed!)
Nope, not true! The fact that you were in the same car, both of you will or can be charged!
(Examples: You're in a group, one commits murder, you're all charged.......you're in a group, one commits a robbery, you all leave together, you're all charged with the same crime!....one more serious than the other)
So, this "I don't know...it wasn't mine", don't cut it when it comes to the law, court and defense, etc.............GET THAT LAWYER A.S.A.P.. You're involved in a serious matter involving narcotics. Pure & Simple!. A good criminal lawyer (or public defender) should be able to work out a defense FOR YOU. He needs the time to work out a defense or work on getting this dropped.......Unless you're able handle this on your own (I think not). You need your mom to help you out too. So, get out of Yahoo Answers, and get busy!

Divorce And Custody Question?
My Husband And I Are Considering Divorce. We Have Twin 3 Year Olds. He Plans To Request Joint Custody. I Wouldn'T Have A Problem With That If He Spent Time With His Children Now. He Is Scheduled To Keep The Kids While I Work One Day A Week, But He Usually Says He Can'T Because He'S Tired, Or Plans Something Else. This Year They'Ve Went To Daycare On His Day More Than He Has Kept Them. He Hardly Ever Sees Them. I Get Them Up Everyday, Take Them To Daycare On Their Scheduled Days, I Spend The Evenings With Them, Cook Dinner, Give Them Their Baths And Put Them To Bed. My Children Are Very Attached To Me And I Know They Couldn'T Handle Overnight Stays Without Me. I Am Their Routine. Will These Things Be Taken Into Consideration? I Don'T Mind Him Seeing Them, But I Worry About How Traumatic It Will Be At This Age. I Think They Could Handle It Better If They Were A Little Older.
The divorce alone will be a change for the kids, so their routine is going to change regardless of what their father does. What matters most is whether their father will live up to the obligations set by the court and why he's asking for joint custody. Is it because joint custody would mean lower or no child support? or because he genuinely wants to spend time with his kids? It's definitely something to bring up with the court and your lawyer. Make sure that anyone involved knows that it's not a matter of you not wanting him to see his kids, but that he isn't a "parent" as he should be and that you don't believe he has proven that he will actually live up to those obligations to his kids. The court may order to review the situation for a while and keep track of his visitation and the arrangements, but generally if you live close to each other, joint custody is very common.
Do Lawyers Work Hard ?
I Mean When They Dnt Have Cases To Handle What Do They Do ?
And Also Is It That Hard To Prepare A Case ?
Last Question : Do They Improvise In Court ? Or Everything Is Prepared ?
Lawyers work very hard. Most lawyers don't have "cases" per se (or at least the type of cases you see on TV). The truth is, most lawyers never see the inside of a courtroom. Those jobs are reserved for a specific set of lawyers called "Litigators" or part of a "Litigation Team".
It is extremely difficult to litigate a case. Many lawyers will work 14-16 hours per day preparing to go to court for as long as it takes them to be ready. When you go into litigation, you don't only care about what you are doing, you need to care about what the opposing counsel is doing. So, in essence, you prepare and break down the case you are working on from both sides of the issue.
Being a lawyer is really hard work from a mental standpoint...you need to critically assess issues and present them in a way that will help your side win. And, if you lose, the person you are representing is usually standing to lose something important. In criminal law, it would be freedom. In business law, it would be money. In family law, it could be custody of your kids.
I guess that's a really long way of saying yes, lawyers work hard.
And closed circuit to YNOT, there is a reason things are called movies....because they are a fantasy version of the truth.
