Questions About Getting An Entry Level Job At A Law Office?
I Was Wondering How I Would Go About Getting A Entry Level Job At A Law Office?
You don't really go into detail regarding work experience, so I am just going to throw a lot of generalities out there and hope it helps.
Not many firms have "entry level" jobs at a law office unless you are planning on being the receptionist. If you have goals of becoming a paralegal, I will tell you most offices require, at the least, an associate's degree. The profession of paralegals is rapidly evolving into a professional career field requiring a lot of education and participation in the career. There are attorneys that will hire a legal assistant without a college education, but they are few and far between. You can also look for legal secretary positions as they often do not require the education/experience that a paralegal will.
The quickest way to get your foot in the door is to offer to intern. You won't be earning a paycheck, unless they offer you a paid internship, but you will be earning experience. Make sure to tailor your resume to highlight the skills you have that will make you useful in a law office setting. Do you have phone experience? How many words per minute do you type? Do you have a certificate to back that up? (Yes, I've had attorneys ask if I had proof of my typing skills. There are many online places that you give a test and you can purchase the certificate for cheap.) Are you familiar with fax machines, copy machines, binding machines? What computer skills do you have. Be specific. If you aren't proficient with Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint, then you aren't skilled enough for a law office.
Attorneys are very busy people. They do not have time to train you to do everything unless they have another secretary/paralegal/legal assistant to help train you. The more you know makes you more marketable. If you don't have at least all of those skills, your best bet is to ask to intern until you do.
How Do I Find Foreclosure Listings That Are 100% Free?
Lots of places, including many counties. However, the free listings are at least ten days behind the power curve. By that time, these folks have been besieged by literally hundreds of hard money lenders, bankruptcy attorneys, and a large fraction of every real estate agent within 100 miles. When they've turned down 351 people already, why should they say "yes" to you on attempt number 352?
Better idea: Team up with a buyer's agent who buys them anyway, as part of their regular business. And in most areas of the country right now, the best place to get a foreclosure is after the auction.
Starting A Solo Law Firm?
I'M A Recent Law School Graduate. I Attended Cuny School Of Law In Nyc. I Flunked The Ny Bar Twice (February And July 2014). I Took The Nj Bar In February 2015 And Flunked. I Passed The July 2015 Nj Bar Exam By The Skin Of My Teeth.
I'M Currently Doing Pro Bono Work At A Legal Aid Organization In Newark, Nj. Although I Like Helping Clients Get Expungements And Giving Them A Second Chance In Life, I Really Need To Make Money. I Owe Over $100,000 In Student Loans. Furthermore, Traveling From Nyc, Where I Still Live, To Newark Is Expensive.
I'M Having Problems Finding A Paying Job Since I Don'T Have Experience (I'M Perplexed As To How Can You Gain Experience If No One Will Give You A Job). I'M Thinking About Starting My Own Solo Practice. I Want To Practice In Criminal Law. However, I Don'T Have Any Money And I'M Not Familiar With The Actual Logistics Of Practicing Law (I.E. Submitting Forms To The Judge).
Please, Helpful Advice Only.
Your problem is that the deadly combo of your poorly ranked law school and struggles with the bar have made you a less than attractive hire. If you got a decent class ranking, consider a less fashionable area of law like immigration.
You will not get any business if you open a solo practice without training at a proper law firm. You will quietly starve. Moreover criminal law (which is the least well paid of any branch of law) requires internships. The usual track is to intern with a judge and then join the prosecutor's office once you pass the bar.
After five years you can switch to defence although of course few criminals have the money to pay for their own representation so you are likely to be a public defender with terrible hours; working nights and weekends.
Move to NJ if you want to save money. You might want to consider some other jobs, law school is a great training for all kinds of work.
Paralegal Program : Legal Research Class..?
How Hard Of A Class Is This? I Have A Newborn Baby And I'M Wondering If I Should Just Put It Off Until Next Semster?? Your Ideas? Thanks :)
Legal research is not that difficult. The instructor should teach you how to do legal research online (using Westlaw or Lexis) as well as teach you how to use books to do the legal research.
Depending on the instructor, he/she may also take you to the local law library so you can get some practical experience.
A Lawyer In The House... Help, Acquired Brain Injury Guy...Is He Responsible?
My Friend Has Suffered A Recent Separation, During His Relationship He Was Violent And Used Moderate Force. Unfortunately With Bad Consequences And His Wife Ended Up With A Broken Tooth (Because She Was Drunk And Felt) While Arguing Being Rough. He Is Isn'T Bright And Got A Lawyer But Has Not Worked For Him, He Will Accept A Restraining Order In Case To Come And Also Has Suffered Depression For Loosing His Family And Child. Now, What We Never Knew Is That He Had Brain Injury And Twice Was Hospitalized Due To Head Fracture, A Week In Induced Coma Plus Other Injuries. He Was Also Shot! As A Child And Previous Wife Cheated On Him Cos He Isn'T Very Sharp, To Say It Nicely.
He Has Now To Defend Without A Lawer In The Next Trial As He Is Out Of Pocket And He Has Been Advised To Play Guilty And Cop It.
I Don'T Think This Is Fair, Is There Any Law To Protect This Guy?????
Of course he's responsible. An old injury doesn't make you free from consequences. We all have our sad stories.
And breaking a tooth is a felony in my state. Not "moderate force".
Is It Possible That Asbestos Got In My Food?
So Here'S What Happened, And I Have Ocd So I Might Be Over Reacting.
I Went To Subway The Other Day And Got My Sub Toasted As Usual. I Was Almost Finished With It When I Noticed That On The Bottom Of The Bread There Were Little White-Ish &Quot;Fiber Things&Quot;. There Were A Bunch Of Them , And They Were Kind Of Like Very Thin Toothbrush Bristles Or Fine Hair. I Started Freaking Out At Once And Started Googleing Asbestos Because I Thought It May Be It. I'M Worried That Some Asbestos Could Have Got On The Bread From The Oven, But Do The Ovens Still Use Asbestos? I'M Really Confused Of What Those Bristles Are But I Just Hope That They Aren'T Asbestos. What Could They Have Been, And Should I Worry? Is It Even Possible That It Was Asbestos Considering All The Food Safety Laws We Have Now?
If it is, yes, you can appeal a lawsuit for it. I heard there are law firms that specialized in such concern. Seek out the asbestos lawyer from Bergman Draper Ladenburg Law firm, they can help you with your concern if and only if you find out that it was indeed an asbestos.
I hope it is not. Good luck.
