Do Graduates From Top Law Schools Ever Go To Work For Smaller Law Firms?
And Represent People Instead Of Corporations? Or Do Almost All Graduates Go To Work For Huge Law Firms And Represent Corporations?
Many graduates of top law schools go into academia, public interest, and government work. Some work for prestigious, but tiny firms. Others just can't get into biglaw, or won't, and opt for smaller firms instead, even with the diminished pay. Obviously, a lot want to go into biglaw because the entry-level salaries are amazing.
Unless you make partner, you're not going to stay in biglaw forever. Most will do it for 5 to 10 years, just long enough to pay off or make a serious dent in their student loans, and then leave for something with fewer hours.
I don't know many law school students who want to always be in biglaw. Instead they see it as a way to pay back debt while gaining valuable experience at a prestigious firm that will allow them to do what they want later.
More to the point, though: yes, the top schools send a lot of graduates to top firms. They don't all do corporate law, of course, but they're big and cover many practice areas. See the NLJ250, a listing of the 250 biggest firms in the US. The economy is sluggish, but you'll notice how many go into these types of jobs.
Comparison Of Lawson Vs. Peoplesoft?
Looking To Implement An Erp System For Gl, Ap, Fa, Projects Etc. Midsized Retailer. Looking For Users Who Have Used Both To Give Their Viewpoint On Strengths And Weaknesses Of Both Financial Tools. Particular Interests In Drill Around Functionality, Workflow And Reporting Tools. Also, Any Opinions On Supporting The Retail Method Of Accounting In Either Package. Neither Appear To Have A Specific &Quot;Stockledger&Quot; Package. Just Looking For Opinions, Likes And Dislikes Etc. From The User Perspective. Thx!
Lawson is great for a mid size company, in certain industries. It was designed mainly around pharmacetical companies. Like many companies, it took that idea and tried to make it sound like a universal software. If you manufacture and need to have sharp cost accounting by unit, then Lawson is OK. I t leads a little to be desired in other industries (like retailing).
PS is a much better overall product. Many more value added features and modules are available. Since Oracle bought PS & JD Edwards, the word is that they are taking the best of all packages and creating a blended product (code named "Fusion").
PS is the hands down winner in this case. But, it is much more costly.
For mid size business, check out Infinium Software. Better price point and better functionality than Lawson for Retail.
How Do You Find A Good Lawyer In Florida That Specializes In The Following?
Wills, Trusts, And Estate Planning? How Do You Separate The Average From The Best?
A place I've found to be a good source is: http://www.localfloridaattorneys.com/Cat...
They have ratings and reviews for lawyers in all fields of law. In general it's a good place to know about, because you have access to a lawyer if you should need their legal services.
If you're seeking a lawyer for any of the above topics you listed. I personally would call a few in your local area, and get a feel for the office. Speaking with the administrative assistant is a good start, it'll tell you alot about their practice. Are they pleasant, abrasive, inpatient? The best thing to do is seek a consultation, you'll get a real good idea of whether you'll want them to represent you or not.

My Company Has A Tuition Reimbursement Program That Is Discriminatory. I Like To Get Serious Opinion And Help On This Subject. I Am A Manager With The Company I Completed All The Requirements Indicated In Section 5.0 Through 5.2.
The Section I Feel Is Discriminatory Are 5.21 And 5.3. Based On My Location Of Employments There Are No Senior Vice Presidents Therefore I Would Not Have Enough Interaction With Them To Gain A Nomination. There Is No Nomination Criteria? In Section 5.3 How Will I Be Able To Complete &Quot;Certification As To Deductibility Of Education Expense By Employee&Quot; If Senior Vice Presidents Are Not In Our Building.
All Our Senior Vice Presidents Are In Our Corporate Office Which Is Located In Another State. In My 5 Years With The Company I Can Count In One Hand The Times I Seen A Senior Vice President Let Along Have The Time To Ask One To Nominate Me For A Executive Graduate Level Program.
I Perceive This As A Way To Limit And Hold Down Employees That Would Like To Pursue An Executive Level Programs. Its A Form Or Segregation Only The Selected Few Can Rise To The Top. This Is Not Fair Or Its Not Providing An Equal Playing Field.

you obviously don't have a clue about what is and is NOT discrimination....
the policy is what it is, you need to speak with your supervisor and HR they will be able to assist you. IF your supervisor and HR believe you are a possible candidate they will contact the appropriate VP......
If you felt I was rude I apologize, the fact is many users claim discrimination and they don't have a clue as to what discrimination is. In your original question and the added details YOU stated:
"My company has a tuition reimbursement program that is discriminatory"
since you had already made up YOUR mind that they were discriminating against you I found it prudent to provide a link for you to learn what is and is NOT discrimination...
I was NOT rude..... Sorry if you felt that way...
I find it hard to believe that the HR department does not know their own policies; these are just the type of issues that they are to deal with....
IF you have proof that the SOLE reason you have been treated different is based on race file a complaint with HR, then if they fail to deal with it contact the EEOC.... from the statements have made so far there is nothing to show you have been treated differently based on race, your primary complaint is that you are not considered for this program due to your physical location not being in the same offices as the VP..... That is NOT discrimination...
Question On Legal Cases... Who Is The Law Firm Representing?
Hi, No Knowledge Here Of Legal Info. Really A Simple Question. I Have An Article From The Daily Deal And I Have To Figure Out Weil, Gotshal And Manges Is The Debtor Counsel For Who... Aleris International?
Daily Deal, Pe Backed Aleris Rolls Into Ch 11
A Steep Drop In Demand For Its Products And Liquidity Constraints Have Flattened Aleris International Inc., Which On Thursday, Feb. 12, Became The Largest Private Equity-Owned Company This Year To Tumble Into Bankruptcy.
The Beachwood, Ohio, Producer Of Rolled And Extruded Aluminum Products Filed For Chapter 11 Protection With 42 Affiliates In The U.S. Bankruptcy Court For The District Of Delaware In Wilmington And Will Have A $1.08 Billion Debtor-In-Possession Financing At Its Disposal.
With $4.85 Billion In Assets, Tpg Capital-Backed Aleris Is The Fifth-Largest Debtor By Assets To File In The U.S. In 2009.
&Quot;We Have Moved Aggressively To Reduce Our Costs And Eliminate Capacity To Offset The Negative Effects Of The Global Economic Slowdown,&Quot; Said Aleris Chairman And Ceo Steven J. Demetriou In A Statement. &Quot;However, Given The Unpredictability Of The Speed And Severity Of The Downturn Over The Last Few Months, These Actions Were Not Sufficient To Counter The Combination Of Challenges Aleris Faces, Including A Sharp Deterioration In Demand For Our Products By The Automotive, Housing, And General Industrial Products Sectors And An Unprecedented Decline In Aluminum Prices Which Limited Our Borrowing Ability.&Quot;
Aleris Will Fund Its Operations During The Bankruptcy With A Dip That Includes A $500 Million Term Loan Led By Prepetition Lender Deutsche Bank Ag And Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. And A $575 Million Revolving Credit Facility From The Deutsche Bank Entities, Bank Of America Na, Banc Of America Securities Llc And General Electric Capital Corp.
Court Documents Show Apollo Als Holdings Lp And Funds Managed By Oaktree Capital Management Lp Are Also Lenders On The Term Loan, Which Is Priced At Libor Plus 1,000 Basis Points For Dollar Loans And Euribor Plus 600 Basis Points For Euro Loans. Both Libor And Euribor Have A 3% Floor....
Stephen Karotkin Of Weil, Gotshal & Manges Llp Is Debtor Counsel. Paul Heath Of Richards, Layton & Finger Pa Is Debtor Co-Counsel. Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson Llp Is Special Financing, Corporate, Tax And Litigation Counsel.
You are correct. The "debtor" is the company that filed for bankruptcy, in this case Aleris International Inc. "Debtor counsel" is the law firm that represents the debtor in the Bankruptcy Court.
If Your Pastor Or Priest Were Running A Drug/Numbers Operation Would You Notify The Elders Or Law Enforcement?
For Example If You Thought Your Pastor Or Clergy Was Involved With A Drugs Or Numbers Racket Would Or Should One First Go To The Church Elders Or To The Proper Authorities In Law Enforcement? Or Would You Just Leave Well Enough Alone And Say Nothing?
If I only thought he was, I would notify the elders. If I knew he was, I would notify both the elders and the police.
