I Want To Become A Criminal Lawyer?
What Are All The Laws A Criminal Layer Should Know Can Someone Please Give Me A Website I Can Find All The Laws Or Codes A Criminal Lawyer Should Know
Lawyers are a dime a dozen, go medical. Heck, there is a shortage of pharmacists and their median wage is $98,000K well above lawyers. Dentists 180,000K median and there is a shortage, and of course a shortage of MDs.
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

I assume you're a gatekeeper mother who wants total control over her children? I'm in KCMO, and I work with fathers throughout the state, so I can tell you there's no cheap attorneys. How about mediating it?
Exactly What Is Joint Legal Custody?
I Know That Physical Custody Is Whoever The Child Actually Resides With, But My Husband And His Ex Gf Are Fighting Because My Husband Ask For Joint Legal Custody Of Their Daughter. She's Telling Everyone That He's Trying To Take Their Daughter Away From Her. Which Is Not True, He Just Wants More Than Every Other Weekend Visitation. Do Most Courts Award The Father Joint Legal Custody If He Is Fit, And Stable?? He Pays Child Support, And Wants To Be A Part Of Her Life. She's Lived With Her Mother All Her Life(9 Years) And My Husband Realizes That, He Just Wants More Time With Her, Not To Take Her Away.They Were Never Married, And Split When She Was Three Months Old, However He Has Always Been A Part Of Her Life, Well, As Much As Her Mom Would Allow, Not He's Preceding With Court To Get His Rights. Does He Stand A Chance? She Keeps Telling Him The Courts Always Favor The Mother, And I Agree To An Extent. But He's Not Asking For Physical Custody, Just Legal Custody. What's His Chances??
the chances are pretty good that he could get joint legal custody. that just means that he has the right to have input in major decisions about his child's life. she can't do anything that would seriously interrupt her life or her ability to see her father, like moving out of town, without consulting him first. it also means that if she has some kind of major medical decision to be made, the mother can't leave him out of the loop. I know a lot of fathers who have joint legal custody. it does not change the fact that the child lives with the mother, the amount of child support he pays, or the amount of visitation he gets. it just puts his rights about helping to make major decisions closer to where they would be if he and his ex were still together.
as far as the courts favoring the mother, that is a load of crap. a judge is supposed to be unbiased. and there are rules and regulations they use to see who would be the better parent. my state uses the Albright Rules, as set by Albright v. Albright. it puts both parents on even footing from the get-go, and then breaks it down to which would be better for this, which would be better for that. my boyfriend actually has custody of his child from his first marriage because the judge saw him more fit. your husband's ex is telling everyone he's trying to take his daughter away because she's scared it could happen. and she should be scared because it could happen. that, and the child is almost old enough to make her decision and ask a judge herself anyway. your husband has every right to proceed with this, and the chances are good that a judge will give him joint legal custody. good luck!
Child Support Visitation Rights (Solution)?
If I Take The Court Papers To The Local Police Can They Go An Escort Mu Husband To Pick Up He'S Son Sense The Mother Is Denyin Him The Granted Visitation??? We Tried Getting A Police To Escort Us But They Said They Dont Do That So If He Goes Personallyy With Court Papers In Hand Will They Help Him??
Child support obligation and visitation rights are entirely separate. You do not pay to see the kids.
Just as his failure to pay child support is dealt with in the family law court, so is her failure to allow visitation. This is not something the police can help you with.
If anyone violates a support order, and if anyone violations a visitation order, the court can find that person in contempt and may jail them.
The remedy is to file a motion for contempt. If you do this without an attorney, you are not likely to win.
There are some "fathers' rights" groups around the country. Some are effective; some are not. At their very best, they are still not an attorney.

Same Divorce Law Firm?
Can You Use Same Law Frim Husband Vs Wife In Divorce Court?
Not without both parties signing a waiver stating they know there is a conflict of interest. The firm can not represent both sides of an action without prior consent from both parties. It violates the bar rules against conflict of interest if they do.
