Business Studies To Become A Lawyer?
Umm, Well I Want To Become A Lawyer, And I Said I Wanted To Do Business Studies For My Gcse. My Sister Said It Was Important To Be A Lawyer, And Almost Every Person That Didn'T Take Business Studies Wish They Did It... Is It That Important?! =O
Business is a good major for any field, legal or otherwise. If you don't have a business major, at least a business minor would be a big help.
Most people I know who go to law school were either business or history majors.
Are Lawyers In Canada Subject To Regular Drug Testings?
I'M Looking To Become A Lawyer But I Smoke Marijuana And I Was Wondering If Lawyers In Canada Have To Go Through Regular Drug Screenings.
And If They Do, How Often?
No. There's no required drug screening. It is conceivable that, if you ended up in disciplinary proceedings, conditions on continued practice could include drug screenings (specifics would vary by Province), but this is not the default scenario - essentially, until somebody has a reason to believe that you're on drugs and they're causing a problem, there would not be any such tests.
About the other answerer saying that a Court can order it for no reason...no. Firstly, Courts don't typically concern themselves overly with disciplining lawyers. That isn't to say that a judge won't call out a lawyer who isn't all there - most often it's alcohol-related - but the judge will do so without feeling the need to order a test. It would be arguable as to whether or not a Canadian judge has the power to order such a test even with reasonable and probable grounds, but even if it could be ordered - by a judge or by the Provincial Law Society - it would most certainly not be something that could be ordered with "no reason". That would raise serious Charter issues.
In the employment context, it's a little different. Employers can, under certain circumstances, require employees to undergo drug testing. But that's contractual in nature; an employee is entitled to refuse, though - in the situations where the employer is so entitled - that would be just cause for dismissal. A judicial order to undergo a test is not something that can be declined (thus, there would be tests to be satisfied under the Charter before such an order could be made), and there's no proviso in any Provincial Law Society's regulations that I've seen for administrative random drug testing as a condition of maintaining one's license. I could envision a Law Society making it a condition of continued practice that lawyers submit for random drug testing (this avoids the Charter concerns by offering a way out)...but such a provision simply isn't there, and if it weren't truly random, then a duty of fairness would apply in the decision-making process leading up to the testing, which is why "no reason" is absolutely out.
Frankly, you wouldn't be the only one. Alcohol does tend to be a lawyer's demon of choice, but when I was in law school I played on a softball team with other law students, several of whom would periodically vanish during at-bats and come back with a rather distinct scent on them...suffice it to say we weren't a highly competitive team.

Is It Legal For Insurance To Require A Monthly Drug Test?
Friend Got Tested For Mono And Somehow They Found Thc In Her System. They Should Have Never Checked For Thc In Her System In The First Place, Then After That Her Doctor Called Her Dad And Notified Him Of This Information. This Is Against Her Hipaa Right? She Is 20. Somehow Her Insurance Found Out And Is Requiring Her To Do A Monthly Drug Test. Does Anyone Else See A Massive Problem Within This Story?
I Guess My Real Questions I Want Answered Are Is Her Doctor Allowed To Divulge Information About Drug Testings To Insurance Companies?
How Would They Find Thc Content While Doing A Mono Test?
And Can An Insurance Company Legally Require Someone To Do A Monthly Drug Test?
Try and understand what an Insurance company is and what they do?? They assure you that if you fall sick/accident they'll help you by giving you a lump money. Provided you do not drug yourself to become sick or commit suicidal attempts in the first place. Because that would mean you are wrongfully taking the money from the companies .. So yes if you are into drugs and all and if the companies ascertain that the insured person has too much risk and her chances of getting sick/accident/DYING is high then the will impose all kinds of regulations to keep you healthy.
From my personal point of view NO DOCTOR should hide any illness that can be transmitted to the mass population by any means (this involves having sex / kiss / drug injections). You cannot demand privacy when you are jeopardizing the health of other people.
Legal Consent Laws In Washington State?
I Am 17 And The Person I'M Interested In Dating Just Turned 23. The Only Thing That'S Stopping Me From Pursuing The Interest Is Legal Consent Laws. I Really Don'T Want To Get Him In Trouble. I'Ve Researched Washington'S Legal Consent Laws And Have Only Found That The Legal Consent Age Is 16. Sooo, Does That Mean We Should Be Safe?
You should be fine since you are 17 but the law is not written in your favor. The legal age of consent is 18, not 16.
The age of consent in Oregon is 18. Sexual offenses are defined under the Oregon Revised Statutes Chapter 163. With regards to age only, the following offenses are defined.
18 - Consent for all laws.
Under 18 - Defined as Sexual Abuse 3 (Class A Misdemeanor)
Under 16 - Defined as Rape 3 / Sodomy 3 (Class C Felony) (ORS 163.245)
Under 14 - Defined as Rape 2 / Sodomy 2 (Class B Felony)
Under 12 - Defined as Rape 1 / Sodomy 1 (Class A Felony)
Additionally, Oregon has a 3 year rule defined under ORS 163.345. However, this does not apply to Rape 1, or Sodomy 1, effectively limiting the age to 12. However, a person can still be charged with Sexual Misconduct (Class C Misdemeanor) under ORS 163.445, if the victim was under 15 years old.
163.315 Incapacity to consent; effect of lack of resistance.
(1) A person is considered incapable of consenting to a sexual act if the person is:
(a) Under 18 years of age;
(b) Mentally defective;
(c) Mentally incapacitated; or
(d) Physically helpless.
(2) A lack of verbal or physical resistance does not, by itself, constitute consent but may be considered by the trier of fact along with all other relevant evidence.
163.435 Contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor.
(1) A person 18 years of age or older commits the crime of contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor if:
(a) Being a male, he engages in sexual intercourse with a female under 18 years of age; or
(b) Being a female, she engages in sexual intercourse with a male under 18 years of age; or
(c) The person engages in deviate sexual intercourse with another person under 18 years of age or causes that person to engage in deviate sexual intercourse.
(2) Contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor is a Class A misdemeanor.
163.445 Sexual misconduct.
(1) A person commits the crime of sexual misconduct if the person engages in sexual intercourse or deviate sexual intercourse with an unmarried person under 18 years of age.
(2) Sexual misconduct is a Class C misdemeanor.
163.345 Age as a defense in certain cases.
(1) In any prosecution under ORS 163.355, 163.365, 163.385, 163.395, 163.415, 163.425, 163.427 or 163.435 in which the victim’s lack of consent was due solely to incapacity to consent by reason of being less than a specified age, it is a defense that the actor was less than three years older than the victim at the time of the alleged offense.
(2) In any prosecution under ORS 163.408, when the object used to commit the unlawful sexual penetration was the hand or any part thereof of the actor and in which the victim’s lack of consent was due solely to incapacity to consent by reason of being less than a specified age, it is a defense that the actor was less than three years older than the victim at the time of the alleged offense.
(3) In any prosecution under ORS 163.445 in which the victim’s lack of consent was due solely to incapacity to consent by reason of being less than a specified age, it is a defense that the actor was less than three years older than the victim at the time of the alleged offense if the victim was at least 15 years of age at the time of the alleged offense.
There is an affirmative defense but that only works if he is minimum 3 years older than you. It is a risk having sex with him at this age but it is highly doubtful anyone would report him or you.

Who Wd B The Best Person 2 Ask 4 An Attorney Recommendation?
A Docor? A Cop? Who? I Need 2 Talk 2 A Lawyer About Sumthin But I Dont Just Wanna Pick A Random 1 Out Of The Fone Book. No Wat I Mean?
Lawyers know other lawyers. They know who is good and who is not. I agree that calling from a phone book is not necessarily a good starting place.
I am a lawyer myself and I know how hard it is for people to find good lawyers.
Here is what I would do if I were you. Look in one of the attorney directories (martindale-hubbell or superlawyers, etc.). However, call a lawyer who does something different than what you need. For example, if you need a criminal defense lawyer, call a family lawyer or a tax lawyer and ask for a few names of good criminal defense lawyers. If you need a divorce attorney, call a criminal lawyer or a tax lawyer. By calling someone who does NOT do what you need, you will guarantee that he or she will not try to take your case, but will be willing to give you a few names of attorneys he or she knows who are good.
Also, lawyers LOVE to refer things to other lawyers. This is because they hope that they other lawyers will refer people back to them. After all, lawyers make money from clients and the more they get, the more they make.
Good luck. If you have a specific need for a lawyer and want some more detailed thoughts, let me know.
