Volunteer In A Law Office?
Hello, I'M Currently Interested In Law But I'M Not A Law Student. Do You Think A Law Office Would Allow Me To Volunteer As An Office Assistant, Or Is That Just Plain Silly.
I would like to make a suggestion: DON'T invest your time in the vocational field of Law.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions. Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest TIME and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Regarding being a Paralegal: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with Bachelors degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................

Automobile Accident Lawsuit?
I Was In An Automobile Accident 2 Years Ago, I Was Found At Fault.I Have Full Coverage Auto Insurance And The Other Party Was Compensated. They Are Now Trying To Sue Me Personally For Additional Personal Injuries Such As Stress And Neck Injury. What Should I Do???
You need to contact your insurance company and have them assist you in handling the lawsuit. IF the other party was compensated for bodily injury by your insurance company they would have signed a Release, thus barring them from further recovery. If they didn't sign a Release, they do have a right to sue you for damages. They CANNOT sue your insurance company (or list them on the lawsuit) because your insurance company was not a party in the accident - HOWEVER your insurance provisions do provide a defense, so CONTACT YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY. Also, your insurance company will determine if the lawsuit was filed within the statute of limitations that your state has, if the suit was filed outside of the statute, then the lawsuit is not valid, and the other party will barred from recovery as well.
Good luck - AND CALL YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY immediately. Generally they have 30 days from the date of service to file an answer. If you were served recently, they need that documentation immediately. DO NOT file an answer yourself, allow your insurance company to earn their premium and handle the situation.

Neck Injury Settlement ? Serious Answers Only Please :-)?
I Hurt My Neck At Work About 6 Months Ago. Because It Happened At Work, It Was A Workmans Comp Case. I Herniated A Disc In My Neck, And The Insurance Company Paid For The Surgery To Fix It A Few Months Ago. Didn'T Hear Anything For A Long Time, Then Got A Letter In The Mail Telling Me I Had To Visit Another Dr For A &Quot;Permanency Evalution&Quot;. I Originally Thought It Was Spam, But Then The Insurance Company Called Me And Said That I Needed To Confirm The Appointment And Show Up. So I Explained To The Woman That I Was Low On Vacation Time With Work And Needed It For Something More Important. She Told Me Not To Worry About It, I'D Be Getting A Lump Sum Check In The Mail And Probably Subsequent Bi-Weekly Checks. Does Anyone Out There Know What This Is About, Or How Much They Settle Something Like This For? I'M In Nj If That Helps. By The Way, I Work For A Family Member. Suing Was Never An Option, I Was Ok With Them Just Paying For The Surgery. However, Because It'S My Neck, This Is Unfortunately Something That Will Be With Me For The Rest Of My Life. I Think Maybe The Insurance Company Is Doing This To Avoid A Lawsuit Perhaps? I'M Just Wondering Because I Have Had Debts Pile Up And Other Financial Hardships, And Would Just Like To Know If This Is Something That Will (Finally) Get Resolved Now
Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated :-)
With workers comp, there's no "pain and suffering". But once you start surgery on your neck/back, it tends to cascade.
Sounds like they want to determine if you have any permanent disability from the injury/surgery. If you do, you'd be "entitled" to loss of future wages, or future medical bills, if the insurance company wants to close out the claim.
So, they have to have someone evaluate you, to see how you are NOW. They'll determine your percentage of permanent disability, then go to the charts for NJ, and calculate how much they need to pay you for the injury.
It's not about avoiding a lawsuit. Workers comp benefits are strictly defined by each state. Things can't "settle" until you've done whatever you need to do (surgery, physical therapy, etc) and have given it a chance to heal. Once you're fully healed, THEN they can evaluate it.
Here is the schedule of benefits for injuries that occurred in 2010, for NJ: http://lwd.dol.state.nj.us/labor/forms_p...
Is It Legal For A Law Firm To Check Your Credit Report?
Just Wondering If It Is Legal For A Law Firm To Check Your Credit Report Without Your Knowledge Or Your Permission?
I Just Found Out That The Law Firm Of Someone Trying To Sue Me For Money Checked My Credit Report. I Did Not Give Them Permission, Nor Was It Them That Let Me Know They Did It.
To Me It Just Doesn't Seem Right, But I'm Not Sure.
I'm In Ontario Canada If That Makes A Difference.
It is legal for anyone to check anyone else's credit report if it is used to verify the likelihood of someone being able to come up with money to pay a bill or a lawsuit, etc. The requester simply pays a fee to a credit reporting agency, verifies that they have a legitimate reason for asking, and that's it. When you buy something on credit you will often see the letters 'O.A.C.' in the ad. That means 'On Approved Credit' and involves a credit check. Apply for a credit card or a loan and it happens as well. The lawyer is simply doing what he is paid to do and making sure that you will be able to pay the amount they are suing you for. Good luck!!
