How Could One Go On To Be A Criminal Lawyer Following A Chemistry Degree?
Are There Any Requirements For A Law Degree? Obviously I'Ll Have A Plethora Of Scientific Qualifications And A Degree... I Have Been Assured It'S Possible To Go On To Be A Criminal Lawyer, But How???
In the USA, to become a Lawyer, IF you go to school full-time:
1) Bachelor's degree - four years from a traditional college/university.
2) Study for LSAT. Take LSAT.
3) Law school - three MORE years.
4) Study for Bar Exam. Take Bar Exam in the state where you want to practice.
5) Pass the Character and Fitness Evaluation. Then you can practice Law.
6) You still have to take additional classes/seminars/legal training etc. each year to obtain CEUs to keep your license to practice Law. (You aren't done with school!!)
7) In many states there are even laws requiring a certain percentage of your legal work to be "pro bono" (free of charge) for some charitable purpose.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! And, 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 STILL IN A WORLD-WIDE RECESSION. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
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!!!<<
The competition to get into law school is intense. Applicants to most law schools greatly exceed the number that can be admitted.
Even if you do finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), 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. And the competition is fierce in TODAY's job market!
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 already have too many law schools. We are STILL 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.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites:
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
**Talk to recent law graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities.<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are MANY issues of working in the vocational field of Law. My answer is an attempt to give you a realistic way of looking at this career, and I have told you things that most will not tell you about the profession - at first. Be careful, do your research, and have your eyes open wide.

Home Insurance In Case Of Lawsuit?
This Occurred In Canada. I'M Now 22, But When I Was 15, Was In A Altercation At A House Party At Another Individuals House. Now, I Am Being Sued By The Other Person In A Personal Injury Suit. I Have 0 Assets And Very Little Savings (Couple Hundred). If It Makes Any Difference, It Was A Two Sided Altercation, Not Just Me Fighting. I Was The One Ultimately Charged And Found Guilty As A Minor.
What Are My Options In This Case? Bankruptcy? I'Ve Read That My Parents Home Insurance May Cover Some Legal Fees, But I Am Not Completely Sure Of This. Advice Please?
Go visit a lawyer for a few hours and they'll get able to get rid of it fairly quickly.
First, at 15 you are a minor. You can't be sued. You can't be held liable. If they wish to sure your parents... fine. I'm assuming that the other party was also under 18 at the time. Again, they can't sue... the lawsuit would have to be against your parents. Your lawyer will merely send the court a letter stating that you were a minor at the time and that any lawsuit would need to be filed against you parents.
Second, in most provinces there is a statue of limitations on civil lawsuits. This is typically two years after discovery -- although there are a lot of exceptions. It will be extremely difficult for them to proof that they only discovered the injury.
Third, liability is extremely limited in Canada. They can't sue for medical expenses... as this is typically covered by their provincial health care plans. Liability for pain and suffering is limited in Canada by statue and again, that should be obvious five years ago when it happened. Lose of income/wages is about the only thing left, but any injury likely to prevent work would also be readily apparent back then.
Forth, there is no point in suing you. You don't have any money. If they want to spend tens of thousands of dollars on lawyers... knowing full well even if found guilty that you would file for bankruptcy and they would get nothing but a pile of bills. If they are suing you in small claims... then you just say that you were a minor at the time and can not be held legally liable for acts prior to turning 18. They need to sue your parents.
Home insurance won't pay for personal injuries resulting from criminal acts, nor would it pay after the statue of limitations has expired.

How Long Can The Divorce Form Be Served In California?
The Petition Filed The Divorce In California?
But Half Want To Continue The Case, Half Want To Withdraw.
The Ealiest Case To Be Finalized In California Is 6 Months & 1 Day After The Form Is Served To The Respondent.
To Have Little More Time To Think About It, Can He Hold On The Form, Not Give It To The Third Party To Serve The Form Yet.
How Long Is The Deadline For A Divorce Form Should Be Served?
The normal time to serve the divorce case is within 60 days of when its filed. That being said, you are allowed to change your mind and never serve it. California courts do not push people to get divorced, they want people to think long and hard about it. That's why you have to wait 6 months from service to even get it finalized. You could wait a year to serve it and I doubt anyone from the court would complain and if they did you could just tell them that you were thinking about it.
Free Divorce Attorney In Fort Worth Texas?
Need Help To Get A Divorce,But I Have No Money And 3 Boys.Any Help Or Info Would Be Great!!Thank You
First, in Texas he can ask for a jury trial. Too many women on the jury and he will get custody.
Start by not being a failure to your children and yourself. Regardless of what you feel, your children deserve to have an intact family. Over 80% of children develop behavioral problems as a result of divorce. That means that at least two of your children will suffer from your failure.
If you have to get a divorce, see a mediator and go for bird nest custody.
It’s a form of access or custody where the children stay in the former family residence and it is the parents who rotate in and out separately and on a negotiated schedule.
The children simply live at "home" and the separated or divorced parents take turns living with them there, but never at the same time.
The core element of this arrangement is that each parent maintains a separate residence where they live when it is not their turn at the "bird's nest". When one parent arrives for his/her designated time, the other vacates right away, so as to minimize or eliminate the presence of both at the same time.
At times, bird's nest access can be coupled with specified access with the other parent say, for example, for dinner one night a week.
Sometimes, this form of access or custody will end when the youngest child reaches the age of majority at which time, one parent either buys the other out of their interest, if any, in the former family residence, or it is sold and the proceeds divided pursuant to the matrimonial property regime or separation agreement.
The arrangement can be expensive as it generally requires that three separate residences be maintained, the "nest" and a separate residence for each parent.
The concept is somewhat novel and appears to have as its origin a Virginia case Lamont v Lamont.
In Canada, Greenough v Greenough was a ground-breaker case in that the Court implemented a bird's nest custody order even though it had not been asked for by either party. Justice Quinn, in Greenough stated:
"In Lamont ... the court made a bird’s nest custody arrangement in which the children (aged 3 and 5 years) remained in the home, with the mother staying in the home during the week and the father on the weekend. I think that the benefits of a bird’s nest order are best achieved where the children are able to stay in the matrimonial home, particularly if it has been the only residence that they have known....
"Time and time again I have seen cases (and this is one) where the children are being treated as Frisbees. In general, parents do not seem to appreciate the gross disruption to which children are subjected where one of the parents has frequent access. In this regard, I do not believe there must be evidence that the children are suffering before the court is free to act. To me, it is a matter of common sense. At the risk of falling prey to simplistic generalities, I am of the view that, given a choice, I do not see why anyone would select a living arrangement which involved so much movement from house to house."
