Unless you live there you cannot get legal aide there. The best thing you can do is contact some attorneys and see if one will take it pro bono or on a sliding scale to help you with the costs
What Kind Of Course Does Criminal Lawyers Take At Law Schools?
1) If Someone Went To A Law School And Wanted To Become A Lawyer, What Kind Course Is He Expected Pursue? Is It Criminal Law, Constitutional Law Or What Else?
Does That Person Have To Do All These:
Please Guys Explain Very Clearly Does Someone Have To Do All These Criminal Law, Constitutional Law And So On Or Do They Have To Select One Of These To Become A Criminal Lawyer Or An Attor?
Law school curricula are pretty standardized for the first year or so, then vary after that.
During your first year, you're expected to take: Property, Criminal Law, Torts, Contracts, and Civil Procedure, as well as a first year Legal Research and Writing Class. Generally, you also get one elective.
Your second year, there are a few recommended classes (Corporations, Constitutional Law), but at that point, you mostly get to pick your own classes. You can either take a wide variety of courses if you don't know particularly what interests you, or you can take a lot of courses in one area (advanced Criminal law courses, if that interests you).
What Kind Of Law Practicing Pays The Most?
I'M Considering Being An Attorney And Just Wanted To Know What Kind Of Attorney Gets Paid The Most (On Average).
Lawyers are a dime a dozen, go medical. Here is the truth.
From US News, Poor careers for 2006
Attorney. If starting over, 75 percent of lawyers would choose to do something else. A similar percentage would advise their children not to become lawyers. The work is often contentious, and there's pressure to be unethical. And despite the drama portrayed on TV, real lawyers spend much of their time on painstakingly detailed research. In addition, those fat-salaried law jobs go to only the top few percent of an already high-powered lot.
Many people go to law school hoping to do so-called public-interest law. (In fact, much work not officially labeled as such does serve the public interest.) What they don't teach in law school is that the competition for those jobs is intense. I know one graduate of a Top Three law school, for instance, who also edited a law journal. She applied for a low-paying job at the National Abortion Rights Action League and, despite interviewing very well, didn't get the job.
From the Associated Press, MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A lawmaker who persuaded the Assembly to eliminate all state funding for the University of Wisconsin law school says his reasoning is simple: There's too many lawyers in Wisconsin.
From an ABA study about malpractice claims, More Sole Practicioners: There appears to be an increasing trend toward sole practicioners, due partly to a lack of jobs for new lawyers, but also due to increasing dissatisfaction among experienced lawyers with traditional firms; leading to some claims which could have been avoided with better mentoring.
New Lawyers: Most insurers have noticed that many young lawyers cannot find jobs with established firms, and so are starting their own practices without supervision or mentoring. This is likely to cause an increase in malpractice claims, although the claims may be relatively small in size due to the limited nature of a new lawyers
“In a survey conducted back in 1972 by the American Bar Association, seventy percent of Americans not only didn’t have a lawyer, they didn’t know how to find one. That’s right, thirty years ago the vast majority of people didn’t have a clue on how to find a lawyer. Now it’s almost impossible not to see lawyers everywhere you turn."
Growth of Legal Sector
Lags Broader Economy; Law Schools Proliferate
For graduates of elite law schools, prospects have never been better. Big law firms this year boosted their starting salaries to as high as $160,000. But the majority of law-school graduates are suffering from a supply-and-demand imbalance that's suppressing pay and job growth. The result: Graduates who don't score at the top of their class are struggling to find well-paying jobs to make payments on law-school debts that can exceed $100,000. Some are taking temporary contract work, reviewing documents for as little as $20 an hour, without benefits. And many are blaming their law schools for failing to warn them about the dark side of the job market.
The law degree that Scott Bullock gained in 2005 from Seton Hall University -- where he says he ranked in the top third of his class -- is a "waste," he says. Some former high-school friends are earning considerably more as plumbers and electricians than the $50,000-a-year Mr. Bullock is making as a personal-injury attorney in Manhattan. To boot, he is paying off $118,000 in law-school debt.
A slack in demand appears to be part of the problem. The legal sector, after more than tripling in inflation-adjusted growth between 1970 and 1987, has grown at an average annual inflation-adjusted rate of 1.2% since 1988, or less than half as fast as the broader economy, according to Commerce Department data.
On the supply end, more lawyers are entering the work force, thanks in part to the accreditation of new law schools and an influx of applicants after the dot-com implosion earlier this decade. In the 2005-06 academic year, 43,883 Juris Doctor degrees were awarded, up from 37,909 for 2001-02, according to the American Bar Association. Universities are starting up more law schools in part for prestige but also because they are money makers. Costs are low compared with other graduate schools and classrooms can be large. Since 1995, the number of ABA-accredited schools increased by 11%, to 196.
According to the Internal Revenue Service, the inflation-adjusted average income of sole practitioners has been flat since the mid-1980s. A recent survey showed that out of nearly 600 lawyers at firms of 10 lawyers or fewer in Indiana, wages for the majority only kept pace with inflation or dropped in real terms over the past five years.
Many students "simply cannot earn enough income after graduation to support the debt they incur," wrote Richard Matasar, dean of New York Law School, in 2005, concluding tha

What Is The Diffrencebetween An Attorny At Law And An Attorny-In-Fact? I'Velookedonwikipedia But They Seemto Give The Same Descriptions.
1. Can One Be Both?
2. What Does It Take To Be An Attorny At Law
3. What Doesittaketo Bean Attorny In Fact?
An attorney-at-law is what you would call a lawyer. We're talking about a person who has at least a bachelor's degree, has gone to law school, has taken the state bar exam and passed. Such a person is licensed to practice law in their particular state.
An attorney-in-fact is a person you name to act on your behalf, usually by drawing up a power of attorney. Let's say you were moving out of state and didn't want to take an old car with you. You could prepare a power of attorney to give your neighbor authority to sell the car for you and do all the necessary paperwork with DMV. Your neighbor would be your attorney-in-fact.
P.S.: Yes, a person can be both, but many states have laws prohibiting lawyers from acting as your attorney-in-fact on certain matters if you have them on retainer (meaning you have "hired" them to work for you) or if they're representing you in court.
Assault Charges A Class Misdemeanor?
Assault 3 With Intent To Cause Physical Injury.?
I'M A 23 Year Old Female And I Was Charged With Assault 3 With Intent To Cause Physical Injury. I Doubt My Boyfriend Will Show Up To Court. This Is My 1St Offense, What Will Most Likely Happen If He Doesn'T Show Up.
I assume the assault charge was filed by your boyfriend, then? If he doesn't show up then the charges could just be dropped. You can't convict someone of a crime if their accuser doesn't show up in court to formally accuse them, generally.
I don't know what State you're in but Washington has a pretty good display of what each felony and misdemeanor charge would get you. Each state might be a little different, but they're usually relatively similar in these kinds of things.
Here's the info on Assault 3: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?...
Since it wasn't a Gross Misdemeanor, by the sounds of it, the maximum penalty is probably 90 days in jail and a thousand dollar fine; that's maximum. For a first offense, if there's no criminal history in your background, you might just get probation and/or a fine, if they even convict you.
