Where Can I Find A Legal Aid Lawyer? I Live In Brooklyn New York?
Contact the bar association in NYC or NY State. There might even be a Brooklyn Bar Association. They should have a legal aid referral service.
Why don't you also contact the law schools in NYC? They usually have clinics that provide legal assistance. Brooklyn College of Law (do I have that right?) would be a good place to start.
How Precedents And Acts Are Capable Of Becoming Sources Of Commercial Law?
Because precedent means case law and that is new law every time. Statutes also evolve over time, and create new commercial laws relating to hire purchase agreements, negotiable instruments and sale of goods and thus become sources of commercial law
What Type Of Lawyer Should I Be?
I'M 13 Years Old And I Have Been Wanting To Be A Lawyer Since I Was 7 Years Old. Now I Really Want Some Advice On What Type Of Lawyer I Should Be. I Want To Make A Good Amount Of Money, I'M Not Looking For Anything Like Crazy Over 6 Figures, But I Want At Most A 100K Paying Job. Something That I Can Live Very Comfortable Off Of. Can Someone Also Explain How Many Years Of School I Have To Go Through. One Of The Options I Was Considering Is Litigation, Real Estate, Bankruptcy, And My Dad Has Recommended A Tax Type Of Lawyer. I Really Would Love To Deal With Real Estate, But I Also Want To Do Something Like Litigation. Please Help Me Out. Thanks!
P.S. I'M A Boy Also, I'M Just On My Mom'S Account.
Yeah, money doesn't follow doing what you love. Biggest pile of horsecrap to ever come out of the '60s. Money comes from doing something that's in demand and hard to learn. Happiness comes from doing something you enjoy and can square with your values system. A great job combines those two.
Specializing in law can be controlled to a certain measure by on your college degree and the courses you take in law school, but even then, some firms will stick you where they need you regardless of your formal education. Your total education will take at least 7 years, but some specialties like tax prefer their candidates to have LLMs, which is basically a master's degree for lawyers. That is an additional year.
Bankruptcy is a dying industry, thanks to laws passed to protect banks and lenders back in 2005. Real estate isn't in big demand, though every lawyer needs to know the basics of it. It gets tied into a lot of other branches of practice. Litigation is a general term for courtroom practice, and it can encompass everything from standard-issue car wreck cases to multi-million dollar pharmaceutical class action lawsuits. Speaking as a tax accountant and lawyer, tax is a good challenge, and you're much more likely to find reasonable employment, either in an accounting firm, law firm, or business.
Things might change by the time you're ready to go to law school, but right now finding a job is rather hard for most new law school grads. Do well in every phase of school, as the better your grades are, the better school you can get into. That will affect your employment prospects substantially. Also, don't waste your college education on a useless degree like political science or English. There is no pre-law degree, so choose something that is independently useful. I strongly suggest accounting or finance if you're leaning toward a business-oriented practice, but engineering is another great choice. Just try to take electives that help with critical thinking and writing.
Can An &Quot;Inexperienced&Quot; Lawyer Start A Law Firm By Himself?
My Brother Has An Undergraduate Degree In Accounting And Went To Law School And Of Course Passed The Bar. He Is Planning On Starting His Own Law Firm (It Will Be Specialized In &Quot;Debt Relief&Quot;, But General Practice As Well). Will He Have A Hard Time?
Yes, he'll have a hard time. First, he'll need to learn the material necessary to practice that type of law - and that's not something he learned in either law school or bar review.
Second, he'll need to bring in clients - and that can be an almost full time job on its own.
Third, he'll have to service those clients - something that's not easy for any lawyer practicing solo.
Finally, he should learn that in some states use of the word "specialized" is prohibited unless he actually has some form of certification as a specialist.
Have A Question About Juvenile Law?
I Have A Friend That Has A Daughter That Has Two Charges On Her Record (Larceny And Breaking And Entering). Some One Told Her That She Can Get It Cleared When She Turns 18. Is This True?
Depends where you live. You are able to clear your record in Canada if you are convicted as a juvenile. It also depends how old she is now, because you can apply for a pardon as well, I think 5 years after the conviction.
What Work Or Community Involvement Experience Does Aperson Need To Be A Lawyer???
Perhaps the information you have received about possible community work/involvement necessary to become a lawyer versus my experiences are worlds and/or planets apart.
Becoming a lawyer has nothing whatsover to do with community involvment/ work until after, if at all, you do become a lawyer. Once, you become a lawyer, choose/select your city, county, state and go from there. If you work for the city you will need to know the political scene and economic scene. People who become good lawyers work their ..........tails off for 5 years and from there..its competitive as hell to obtain the right positions, land as a lawyer for the quality companies, etc. If you are an independent lawyer, etc, perhaps you need to get involved with the community. Criminal prosecuting and defense lawyers need to work with the city. Corporate lawyers could give a damn about community or civic involvement. Private lawyers for big firms wouldnt know the difference between a community and a back rub.
