However, should you follow the following it will be possible to limit your research to the correct one in very little time. Step one is to create a list of the lawyers that are listed in your area that specialize in your needs.

Can A High School Student Get A Part-Time Job At A Law Office ?
This Summer I Want To Get A Part Time Job In A Law Office; I Know You Need Schooling To Become A Lawyer, But Are There Any Other Jobs In A Law Office That A High School Student Is Eligible For? I'M Also Looking For An Internship At A Law Office, Are There Any Opportunities For Me To Serve As An Intern In A Law Office?

If you have a "mommy" or a "daddy" or other relative that is already employed at a law office, then you may have a chance at getting in.

You need basic schooling to work at a law office even if it is simply working as a Receptionist - there are basic things that legal professionals need to know so their employer doesn't get into trouble. For example, you cannot give advice without a license as an attorney or you can get prosecuted for "Unauthorized Practice of Law". There are other basic rules that all legal professionals need to know before they work in a legal environment.

Without an important contact, and/or without some basic training as to working in a legal environment, then -no- you probably won't be offered any opportunities.

My suggestion is to try to get into any type of an office environment for now as a high-school student.

I hope you are not entertaining the thought of law school in your future.

Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.

The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in absolute CRISIS!!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed DRAMATICALLY! Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....

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)

Sites like have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.

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, if becoming an attorney is your "true" ultimate goal.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

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.

>>>>>I cannot warn you about this enough!!>>>You especially have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools!!!*****<<<<<

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..................

In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability! and scholarships!

Good luck.

Will The Family Law Courts Look At This?
The Mother Of My Child Lives With Her Parents And Is Not Allowed To Make Any Decisions About Our Child. Her Mother Is In Charge Of Everything Because Her Mother Says She Can'T Make The Right Decisions. Her Mother Has Already Said That Even After Court I Am Not Going To See Our Child. I Told My Ex Then She With Be The One Being Charged With Contempt Of Court And Not Her Mother. She Says She Knows But There Is Nothing She Can Do About It. Will The Courts Take Into Consideration That My Ex'S Own Mother Says She Can'T Make Good Decisions?

I'm somewhat confused about whose mother we're talking about sometimes. The child's mother or the child's mother mother?

Is it the child's mother mother that says you won't see the child and also say's that the child's mother is not capable of making decisions?

Anyways, she will have to be willing to testify. Are you sure you want to call a witness who is not on your side? They could easily turn this around and just say that your ex has the responsible support of her family to provide a stable home environment.

And this sounds very expensive when you start calling witnesses and dragging things out. I'm not sure just this bit of testimony alone would be worth bringing your ex's mother into this. It is far more important to focus on your ex and yourself.

Courts of course favor the parent that is more open to visitation with the other parent. Its not a good thing if the child is in the custody of a household that restricts this. Just write it down in a diary you should be keeping regarding everything about the child and your ex.

I Have A Question For An Injury Lawyer......?
I Was The Passenger In A Car Accident In Febuary And Ended Up With A Fractured Hip And Dislocated It Also. I Had To Have Emergency Surgery And Have Pins And Plates Put In. I Am An Army Reservist And I Also Had A Civilian Job. The Doctor Is Says I Pretty Much Cant Do Anything And Now I Have To Have A Full Hip Replacement. I Havent Been Able To Work Since Febuary And The Insurance Company Of The Person At Fault Said They Can Only Offer 250000 Dollars To Cover The First Surgery And The First Surgery Was A Little Over 68000. Im Not Being Compinsated In Any Way Shape Or Form And Its Been Over 2 Months. Im Even Having To Pay Out Of My Own Pocket For The Monthly Doctor Visits. And The Insurance Company Said I Have To Find My Own Sources For The Second Surgery. Im Currently Not Insured. Because Of This Accident I Might Very Well Be Getting A Military Discharge Also. I Havent Had Any Source Of Income Since The Accident Or Anything. Is There More That I Should Be Entitled Too Other Than What The Insurance Company Said They Could Cover? Or Am I Pretty Much Screwed? There Were No Other Cars Involved. The Person At Fault Was The Driver And He Lost Control On The Interstate And Hit Head On Into The Concrete Median..

Ask your lawyer. No insurance company will offer you more than what their paper says, but a lawyer will get that number increased. Of course, the lawyer will also take a substantial chunk of any settlement made, from 30-40% of the total. So if he can't at least double the money, it isn't worth the effort.

Do Disability Lawyers Like To Use Their Own Doctors Or Do They Have To Use A Social Security Doctor?
I Am Getting Help From A Large Firm Lawyer To Get My Social Security Disability And They Are Sending Me To A Doctor Where I Have To Pay $500.00 Up Front. Do You Think They Are Using Their Own Doctors Or Is It A Social Security Doctor? They Said I Have To Pay Cash Up Front To The Doctor.

What you have to remember for disability is this. Have as much documentation from YOUR Dr's I do not know what your disability is but I know with mine I had so much documentation from all the Dr's I went to.

I got every report every film I had op reports physical therapy reports.

The next step was I was to see a Social Security Dr. 2 days before the appointment my lawyers called and said Social Security received all your reports and just issued me Social Security Disability without their Dr looking at me. that is how much documentation I had.

I do not like the idea that your lawyer has a Dr for you to go to for Social Security, but that is just me.

Like I said earlier I do not know what happened toy you but get as much documentation as possible. You are entitled to any and all reports from Dr's you went to EXCEPT a workers comp Dr. But your lawyer can get those and you should ask for a copy of them also.

Hope this helped.

Are There Any Laws Made For Lawyers?
If There Are, Please List Them. What Happens If Lawyers Goes Against The Laws?

You have got to be kidding The laws that regulate lawyers probably take up a couple of law books alone. If a lawyer does something illegal, he can be prosecuted and/or disbarred, which means he cannot function as a lawyer.

Are There Any Lawyers On This Site?
Just Curious To Know, Because We May Need Your Servises! Lol

Call the local lawyer referral service. You can find them in the phone book.

Lawyers, and I'm sure there's a few on the boards, don't give advice for free. Why not?

1. Because legal advice requires a full understanding of the situation - and that isn't going to happen on a website.

2. Because good advice takes time and no one works for free, at least not very often.

3. Because any professional has a fiduciary responsibility to know the client and their situation so the advice is really the right advice. That's just not possible here.

Fiduciary means legal.

4. You could still sue a lawyer (or financial advisor for that matter) for the advice given if it was wrong advice, EVEN if you didn't pay for it. Why take that risk without getting paid?
