High School Law Firm/Office Internship?
I'M A Sophomore In High School And It'D Be Awesome If Some Could Tell Me How I Could Go About Getting An Internship At A Law Firm/Office In The Local Area. Should I Write A Letter To The Different Places? E-Mail? Call? I'M Really Now Sure How To Go About Doing This. Also, What Type Of Things Would I Be Doing? Would I Learn Lots Of Things? Any Advice Would Be Fantastic. Thanks!
If the law office is a regular for-profit law office, then they would probably not be able to have you work as a volunteer there. This is due to the minimum wage law. If you are being paid zero, you are not earning the minimum wage. There are some ways of getting around this issue, but it is hard to imagine a law office being willing to go through all that. It is also hard to imagine a law office being willing to pay you because there would be so little that you could do there.
Nonprofit legal organizations, however, might be able to use volunteers. However, as mentioned by a previous answerer, your tasks would be quite limited.
Affordable Legal Aid For Child Custody Modifcation?
I Have An Existing Court Order With The Ex, It Is A 50/50 Arrangement, Both Physical And Legal. I Want To Get This Changed To Full Legal And Physical Custody As I Have Evidence He Is Using Drugs.
Is A Modification Slightly More Expensive Than The Original Agreement? I Am Needing Legal Aid, Or I Might Try To Do This Myself.
Thanks For Your Advice
The price of it depends a lot on how much he decides to fight you. It could simply be a couple hundred dollars if an attorney writes up a petition, files it with the court and your ex doesn't fight it. But if he decides to fight it, you could be in and out of court for months and it could get very expensive.
What is he like? Some men will sign over custody without a court battle if they know they will lose. Others will fight with everything they can. If he is the fighting type, you need an attorney.
If you are low income, you may qualify for free legal aid from the state. You should be able to contact any state agency and get a list of resources for low income families. They won't fight as hard for you as a paid attorney, but they could help get all of the paperwork filed. But if your ex decides to fight it, I'd recommend getting another attorney.
My advice would be to meet with a couple of attornies. They will usually do a consultation with you for free and let you know how solid your case is and let you know what the price range will be. Go to a few different lawyers and decide which one will fight the hardest for your children. I found out the hard way that you often get what you pay for - and I had to spend more with a different attorney to try to fix the mistakes of my first one. Sometimes spending more money upfront can save you a lot of money in the long run.
I'm wishing you the best of luck!
What Are The Service Dog Laws In Tennessee?
I'm Going To Tennessee In January With My Medical Alert Dog. I'm Told They Have Slightly Different Laws There And I Haven't Been Able To Find Them.
Btw-There Is A Web Address That Looks Like An Ip Address That Supposedly Leads You To The Laws, But It Does Not Work.
Hello My name is GeorgeAnna L. Bell
I am a Nationally Certified Dog Obedience Instructor Training Service Dogs for a living. All the laws are Federally Mandated. State just makes laws better. If you have questions about the laws in TENN contact the Attorney Generals Office

Laws that protect the rights of people with disabilities
who have trained service animals
The federal civil rights law, the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title III, 28 CFR Sec 36.104, defines a service animal as any animal that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for a person with a disability (the disability might not be visible). By law, a service animal is not considered a pet. Most service animals are dogs; they can be any breed or size, and are not legally required to wear special equipment or tags. The ADA does not require proof or “certification ”of the service dog’s training. Service animals are trained to do specific tasks for the benefit of people with physical or mental impairments.
Federal (e.g., 28 CFR Sec 36.302) and state laws protect the rights of individuals with disabilities to be accompanied by their trained service animals in taxis, buses, trains, stores, restaurants, doctors’ offices, schools, parks, hotels and other public places. Federal laws which protect individuals with disabilities include the ADA; the Fair Housing Amendments Act (1988); Sect. 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (1973); The Air Carrier Access Act (1986), and other regulations.
State and local laws* which protect the rights of individuals who have disabilities to be accompanied by their service animals are (fill in the code numbers of the laws that apply):
*NOTE: If federal and state or local law conflict, the law that provides greater protection for the individual with the disability will prevail. For example, if state law grants access only by service dogs that do guide work, and the service dog in question performs work other than guide work, federal law will apply. The person with the disability must be permitted access with the service dog.
The person who is accompanied by the service animal is responsible for its stewardship (behavior, care and well-being), must obey animal welfare laws (such as leash, cruelty or other similar regulations), and is liable for any damage done by the service animal.

Question About Law School?
If I Want To Pursue International Criminal Law, Do I Study Criminal Law Or International Law?
Also, Where Do International Criminal Lawyer Work? (The Government, The Un, A Law Firm, All Of The Above...?)
Thanks For The Info!
There really is no such thing as "international criminal law".
While there are some international criminal court cases at The Hague in Amsterdam, they are very rare (like 1 every few years....if that). And those cases are handled usually by European lawyers with decades of litigation experience. If this is something you really want to pursue you will NEED to graduate from a top 10 law school (Harvard, Yale, Columbia, etc) near the top of your class, secure an elite job, do that for 30 years, and MAYBE you might be able to work on one international criminal case at some point in your career.
And when you are in law school, you don;t have a major, you don't pick a single area of law to study. You will need a well rounded legal education, and you will learn a bit about all aspects of law. Your school will probably have only one class in "international law", and 80 % of the material will deal with international business deals and contracts, with a small part of the class focusing on treaties.
