Question For Lawyers And Law Students!?
I Am Thinking Of Going Into Law Because I Am Fascinated With Human Rights And International Affairs, But Am Wondering, Is Law School And The Profession In General As Cutthroat And Stressful As Portrayed By The Media? How Do You Like Working In Law, And How Intensely Intelligent Are Most Law Students... So To Say, If I Am In The Top 10% Of My High School But Not Necessarily The Top 1%, Will I Be In Over My Head?
I am currently in law school and enjoying it. Yes it is very competitive and difficult. As for cutthroat I will say that it is anything but cutthroat. Students are willing to help each other do well. As for the students most are your regular students that you grew up with. Hopefully if you are at a good law school there is a different atmosphere that the students have then during undergrad or high school. But for the most part no student is so intelligent and out there that you feel intimidated. If there is someone who intimidates you on your first day they do not tend to last that long or rank that high. The really intelligent ones are in med school anyways.
As for how you will do. That is all up to you. I have seen people who are at the top of their class up until law school and could not handle it and had to drop. Law school is more about you and hard or easy you want to make it. If you are smart you can get by in the middle of your class fairly easy and get into public interest law like you seem to want to be in.
If nothing else go for if that is what you want. I was not in the top 10% of my high school class but the top 25% in college and feel that I am suceeding in law school. Good Luck
Is It Normal For A Criminal Appellate Attorney To Charge $6000 For An Appeal On A Criminal Case?
Do Criminal Appellate Attorney'S Charge Only $6000? Is This Normal For Them To Charge This Low Price? Do They Only Charge Such A Low Price If They Feel That They Cannot Win The Case For The Client?
It depends on the issue in the appeal and how much work is involved in writing the appellate brief. That is not an unusual fee in my area of the country. I frequently charge a flat fee for appeals rather than an hourly fee. The price has nothing to do with whether the attorney thinks they can win or not.
Have You Completed Law School?
I Am Wondering What The Job Market Is Like For New Grads. What Is The Coursework Like? I Have A B.S With A 3.9 Gpa So Getting In To Law School Should Not Be A Problem, I Think The Problem Is Deciding If It'S Worth Getting Into. I Asked A Similar Question Like This Yesterday, And This Guy Gave Me A Very Interesting Answer, But I Only Got 1 Answer, So I Need More Back-Up Answers To Compare. Thanks-
I am in law school. Your 3.9 is good but is nothing without a good LSAT. I graduated with a GPA around that and did poorly on the LSAT and my law school options were very limited. GPA is only half of the equation, and at some schools they weigh the LSAT heavier.
The coursework is like nothing you have seen before. The reading is brutal (300-400 pages a week), it is hard reading, it takes about an hour to read 10 pages at first. You read cases (opinions that judges have written) and statutes. For the cases you must know the facts, the holding, the legal rule and the reasonign for the rule and holding. Casebooks are not like textbooks, they do not simply say here is the law. You have to read the cases and figure out what the judges are saying and more importantly why they are ruling as they are.
You are graded on one final exam at the end of the semester. It is not like exams you have ever taken. There will be essay portions where it is a 4 page fact pattern and you are expected to find all of the legal issues (anywhere from 8-20) and analyze them all. Issue spotting is the most difficult part. The multiple choicce is also very different from what you have seen, as they will lay out tons of facts and then have choices from A-E. Questions on law school exams are not like, "what is the definition of X" they are much more difficult.
Class is taught using the Socratic Method which entails the professor calling on random students (not voluntary participation) and drilling them on a case that was assigned. If you are not prepared (ie, you did not do the reading or read it thourghly enough) the prof will give you a pass. This counts as an absence. The ABA (american bar association) mandates that a student be present at 85% of regularly scheduled classes to even take the exam. This means, roughly speaking, you get about four absences a semester anything over that and you are automatically withdrawn from the class.
Success in undergrad does not always equal success in law school. Law school is graded on a strict curve (at my school it is 25% A, 30% B, and 40% C). This means that the majority of students will get C's. Furthermore, in undergrad you have a lot of slackers in your class, that changes in law school. Everyone there has had acedemic success and most students are used to getting straight A's, which is close to impossible in law school (you must really work hard).
As for job market, you will get mixed answers. If you go to a good school or graduate near the top of your class you have excellent chances of landing a good job.
Good luck, I would reccomend a prep course for the LSAT, maybe Kaplan.

In Washington State Child Custody Visitation Question!?
My Sons Dads (&Quot;Bob&Quot;) Visitation Schedule Is Sunday 9Am Until Tuesday 6Pm. On Saturday Nights &Quot;Bob&Quot; Usually Calls Me To Arrange The Details And Plans For Sunday. This Saturday I Did Not Get A Call, He Did Not Show Up At 9Am. But Called At 8Pm That Night. Around 730Pm His Mom Called Me Saying Bob Wants Her To Pick Up &Quot;Bob Jr.&Quot; I Asked Her To Have Him Call Me. That'S When He Called At 8Pm While I Was At My Neighbor'S House And My Cousin Gave Me The Message After 10Pm Which Was To Late To Return His Call. &Quot;Bob&Quot; Has Claimed The Reason Its So Difficult To Call Me Is Because His G/F Doesn'T Like It. On This Wednesday I Saw &Quot;Bob&Quot; Who Happen To Be With His G/F Since I Knew This Would Be The Only Time I Would See Him Until Sunday When He Picks Up &Quot;Bob Jr&Quot; I Asked Him If He Could Please Call Me It Was Important Regarding Our Child! Which He Never Did Until 8Pm Sunday Night! So Basically What I Was Wondering Was Do I Still Have To Let &Quot;Bob&Quot; Have His Visitation And Cancel The Plans I Unexpectedly Had To Make For &Quot;Bob Jr&Quot; Since His Dad Did Not Show Up? Or Is It Ok To Wait Until Next Week For &Quot;Bob&Quot; To Continue Regular Visitation? What Do You Think/Or What Would A Judge Say, Can He Get Me For Contempt, Or Not?
Frankly speaking, Bob needs to grow up and take responsibility for the child he made with you. It is grossly unfair that Bob would leave both you and his child on the hook right up to the time (or even after) as to whether or not he is going to exercise his visitation. You have the right to know if he is picking up his child so you can schedule accordingly and your child should not be left on tenderhooks as to if he is going to see his father that week!
And if Bob was old enough to make a baby with you, he is old enough to talk to you about his visitation arrangements without asking for his girlfriend's permission. He needs to put on his big boy pants and put his gf in her place...letting her know that his kid was on the scene before she was and until or unless he marries her, his number one responsibility is to his kid, and NOT her. And if she can't accept the fact that he has to communicate with you for the best interest of his child, he needs to give HER the boot!
Now as to visitation. The visitation is with your ex, not his mother, his gf, his best friend, etc. He needs to communicate with you directly or, if he refuses to do that, he needs to go back to his lawyer and set up a document (signed, dated, and witnessed) authorizing someone else to communicate with you on his behalf. Otherwise, you have the legal right to ignore any unofficial communication coming from anyone else but your ex as they have no rights in this matter. In other words, do not let anyone pick up your son in place of Bob unless you have a document authorizing it. Otherwise, Bob could say later that you didn't make the child available to him (yes, parents play games like that) as the person who called about picking the child up could have lied or been unauthorized to make that arrangement!
You need to get your lawyer to write an official letter to Bob letting him know that as the visitation is his alone, that you will not accept any communications regarding that visitation with anyone else but him unless he provides you with a signed, dated, witnessed document authorizing it. And that you will need such a signed/witnessed document each time he has someone else other than him pick up his child for the visitation.
Also, at the same time, ask your lawyer to explain to you your duty regarding his visitation times. In most documents, there is some sort of notification required that a parent is going to execute his visitation and that if the notification isn't given by a certain date/time, that visitation is cancelled for the week. If there is such a notification in your document, you need to have your lawyer make reference in that in the letter and let him know that from now on, if Bob doesn't notify you on or before that date and time that he is exercising his visitation, that visitation will be cancelled. And also say that if he habitually refuses to pick his child up for the scheduled visitation, that it will be documented and brought before the judge as you will be asking for more child support to cover the increased time and expense of taking care of the child the two of you made (he won't like that).
Now as for do you have to let Bob take the child when he shows up late for visitation? Check it with your lawyer first but I believe no. Tell him I am sorry but that since he could not be bothered to pick up his child when he was supposed to, his child was forced to make other plans to fill in that time. Tell him that he has lost his visitation for that week by not showing up like that (he has no right to leave you hanging like that as you might have had plans of your own AND this is also a control issue on his part...he is showing you that he can do what he pleases with impunity...don't let him get away with it!) but that he is welcome to schedule for the following weekend.
As for contempt of court, tell the judge that you made the child available for visitation but his father did not pick him up when he was supposed to. He didn't even call his child to let him know but he shows up eleven hours late (document everything). Since you made your child available for visitation at the scheduled time and the father refused to execute such visitation at the appropriate time, there is no contempt. And your lawyer might point out gracefully to the judge that it isn't reasonable for the child's father to expect you to wait at home for the entire time of the scheduled visitation for the father to execute such visitation. I doubt the judge would think that is a reasonable expectation.
Addendum: yes, your son's father has the right to visitation but he has no right to show up 11 hours late and expect you to sit there waiting for him to pick up his child. And it is grossly unfair to the child to expect him to sit at the door for eleven plus hours. Children are live human beings, not property. If the father is more than three hours late without good excuse or calling, I think you will find that the judge will not expect you to sit there any longer but you are free to make other plans. And as Bob is entitled to 57 hours of visitation a week (2 days, 9 hours according to the schedule you gave), it is extremely unreasonable for anyone to expect you to stay at home that entire time until Bob decides to pick up his child.
