Any Advice For An Aspiring Attorney In Community College? (I'Ve Already Been Accepted To A State School, Just Finishing One Semester)

How To Be Proactive In My Studying For The Lsat, Exactly What Needs To Happen With The Lsat To Actually Get In To Law School... I'M Clueless
I Would Love Some Help
Are you near a law school? If so get a tour, sit down w/admissions counselor about their requisites and see if (in the fall, of course) you can sit in on a first year class.
The ABSOLUTE first thing you MUST do is register (free) at www.lsac.org They have a slew of resources regarding law school, LSAT prep and finding the right school.
As far as being proactive on the LSAT you need to practice... there are tons of books with practice exams and even free online courses.
You can take your LSAT nearly any time really, but take it within a year of applying (your last semester of your undergrad if you plan on going right into law school).
Being an English major - you should be used to all the reading, reading, reading... It's a good major for law school. You may also be able to take some "pre law" electives during your undergrad - those may give you some exposure as to what law school profs want.
Just food for thought: WHY do you want to go to law school? WHAT do you want to do with your law degree- practice? be a legal analyst for a TV/Radio/News outlet? Look for a school that has a program that can concentrate your studies on the area you're interested in.
Is It Possible To Go To Law School To Become A Lawyer With An On Line School?
I Want To Go To Law School And Become A Lawyer In The U.S.A.
But It Would Be Much Easier If I Could Take All My Law School Classes On Line.
Instead Of Having To Travel To School Or Sleep In A Nearby Dormitory.
Getting the education does ot make you a lawyer no matter where you go to school.
Each state has a Bar association which administers the license to practice law. Contact your state's group and find out what the requirements for a license are. That will tell you what education is necessary and what examinations are required (the Bar Exam) prior to any license.
THEN find out if the school you want to attend has classes that will be accepted toward that license.
Please Someone I Need A Competent Personnal Injury Attorney, Who I Can Speak To W/O 5 Transfers?
I Want To Fire My Present Law Firm. I Became Enraged Over Lack Of Competence, Said A Few Enflamed Words Only To Have Pacific Law, My Own Representation, Take My Words Totally Out Of Context! Then Take And Register A Complaint With San Diego Police! Help1
I'm assuming you are probably talking to the paralegals more than the attorney? Furthermore, you are probably talking the attorneys voicemail more than speaking directly to the attorney. Typically the reason is there is no updates to your case, but still that is no reason why they can't return calls or at least take your calls etc. I am assuming that you are working with a large PI firm and probably your particular case is not a huge PI case for the firm. My recommendation would be to start calling around to sole practitioners or smaller firms. The best way to make sure this doesn't happen again is to interview several firms prior to making a decision on who you will hire.
If you are looking for a personal injury attorney in Cali, I have attached a pretty good link of a lawyer search engine. I would search for "California personal injury lawyer" gather about 5 names and start calling. Good luck....
If I Study To Be A Paralegal, Does That Make Me Qualified To Get A Job At Any Type Of Law Firm. I Specifically Would Like To Work For And Immigration Firm?
Ummmmm This is not a law & legal question. So wrong forum. Secondly, why immigration law? Ugh!
What Kinds Of Jobs Could I Get As A Corporate Lawyer In Either Federal, State, Or Local Government?
I'M A Partner At A Law Firm And Have Been Practicing Corporate Law For Ten Years.
I'm going to disagree with one of the previous answers, based on the fact you're a corporate lawyer. Unless you're using that phrase in some manner with which I'm entirely unacquainted, that means you are *not* a litigator. That - plus your relatively advanced seniority - will make it unlikely that you can get a job in a prosecutor's office.
The most likely job in your field would be doing business-type things (contracting, etc.), which might be in the state attorney general's office, maybe a city attorney or perhaps a federal agency. The problem with these jobs is that they're fairly "civil-service-ish," which means they don't pay very well, and they're going to consider you hugely over-qualified.
The best course for finding something commensurate with your experience and level of expertise would be to use (or make) the political connections necessary for a higher-level political appointment. It still won't pay all that well, but it would at least use your skills, be somewhat interesting, and has the potential to move your career forward instead of backward.
How Legal Aid Works In Canada?
Recently Friday Night I Was Just Going To Bars With My Boyfriend Having A Couple Drinks, Not Even Getting Drunk And We Went To This One Bar To Meet His Brother And Friends. So We Had To Wait In Line For A Bit And The Bouncer Let Them In And Stopped At Us. So We Waited Patiently And Asked Him If We Could Just Go In And He Said No, Its A Hours Wait Being A Jerk. I Was Just Playing With The Little Chain He Had Across Holding The Line Cause I Was Bored And He All A Sudden Got Mad And Told Me Im Not Getting In..Then My Boyfriend And I Left And I See A Hot Dog Stand So I Grabbed A Thing On Bbq Sauce And Squirted His Shirt A Little, Its Not Like I Unleashed The Whole Bottle On Him And Ran. I Know I Was Wrong To Do That, But It Was One Of Those Moments If You'Re Going To Be A Jerk, Then So Am I. Later On That Night After Him And Me Went To Another Bar We Were Randomly Walking Not Even On The Bars Property, The Bouncer And Some Random Guy Came Up To Me And Tried To Grab Me Then Drag Me Towards The Bar. I Was Resisting And They Started Dragging Me On The Sidewalk And I Was Wearing A Skirt So My Legs Are Cut Up Mainly On My Knees Plus Random People Around Us Could See My Underwear, Embarassing. His Friend Who I Did Nothing To Punched Me In The Lip And It Was Bleeding And They Just Man Handled Me Pretty Much. My Boyfriend Pushed Them Away And Was Huddled Over Me Protecting Me. After His Friend Went And Got The Cops And Watched The Video Tape. I Got Arrested Just For Squirting Bbq Sauce, I Guess Thats Assult. Then Taken To A Holding Cell, Then Jail For A Bit. I Got Finger Printed, Picture Taken And All My Information Taken In, I Was There For About 12 Hours. So This Coming Friday I Have Court And Have To Find A Legal Aid( Free Lawyer In Canada )
Sorry For The Long Story, But My Question Is What Happens In Court? Do Legal Aids Come Right To Court With You? Would I Beable To Press Any Charges Towards The Other Guy That Punched Me In The Face Or The Bouncer For Beating The Crap Out Of Me? And If Anyone Knows What Might Happen To Me?
Yes you can file charges on them.I would contact legal aid immediately.Explain to legal aid when your court date is.If you cannot get an app before court then when you arrive,ask to speak with duty council & they will help you or have your case remanded so you may obtain a lawyer.
