4 Approaches To Help Your Lawyer Assist You To If you want a legal professional at all, you must work closely using them so that you can win your case.

Whether it's witnesses or payments being made, provide your attorneys with all the data they should enable them to win. 3. Arrive Early For All Engagements Do not be late when you're appearing before a court and avoid wasting the attorney's time, too, when you are punctually, each and every time. In fact, because you may want to discuss last second details or even be extra prepared for the situation you're facing, it's a smart idea to arrive early. 4. Demonstrate You Have Your Act Together If you've been responsible for any sort of crime, it's important so that you can prove to the legal court which you both regret the actions and are making strides toward increasing your life. For example, if you're facing a DUI, volunteer to get a rehab program. Be sincere and involved with the neighborhood the judge is presiding over. Working more closely with the legal team increases your odds of absolute success. Try this advice, listen closely to how you're advised and ultimately, you ought to win your case.

Major For Law School? Advice?
Hello, I Have Been Told That You Can Practically Major In Anything Undergrad If You Are Wanting To Go To Law School. I Was Looking For Recommendations, Right Now I'M Political Science/ Prelaw, Is This A Good Idea???
No one major is the key to law school. Admissions looks at the amount of writing, thinking and communicating that you have had to do in your undergraduate education. To build skills for law school, take English, Philosophy and possibly even History classes. These classes will force you to think, research and write.
You should probably rethink the Political Science path, if law school does not work out, the degree by itself is useless. It would be better for you to focus on something with more utility, like Economics or Business.
My classmates have music degrees, finance backgrounds and science backgrounds. I personally have a political science background, which I regret.
Can You Ever Truly Trust Another Person?
Or Can You Only Really Only Trust Yourself?
Trust is such an important thing in any relationship of meaning.
I personally was much too trusting when I was a younger man. That trust was so often abused, and people would tell me I was "taken advantage of". That's the thing about trust when you are a decent man. Don't do it too easily, or you might be hurt. But then, if you give someone your advantage, then they really can't "take advantage" of you, can they?
That's the way I see it now; That we all find a time when we somehow "know" that we can trust somone with anything, and know that they will never violate that confidence. So I suppose that before I trust someone completely, I have to have love and respect for them, and hopefully they for me. For that reason, I do not trust often, and that trust is probably the only thing of actual value that I really ever offer a friend, or a lover. When I say the word "value", I do not mean a gift, or something of monetary means, as those things are worthless at the end of one's life. When you give someone your confidence, you are showing them what they mean to you, and how you think of them. Think about what you might say, without words, to a person you allow into your bed. You are telling them that you trust them with your heart and with your body. I cannot think of a more beautiful statement of trust as that...
I tell you, every one of my friends know that I trust them. I SHOW them what they mean to me with my every action. Some would say that this would make me "soft", especially fellow Marines... But I have found something much finer and meaningful than I ever could have found as the young, stupid, arrogant boy that I once was. Every relationship I've ever had, either romantic or otherwise, has hinged on trust.
So to answer your question: Yes, you can trutst another person. In fact, it might be quite nescessary, if the relationship is ever to have depth and meaning. Of course, this is all based on MY experiences, and in no way do I think that this can be applied to any other person's life. I just wanted to share my perspective with you.
Hoping To Become A Corporate Lawyer! (:?
I Am A Freshman At Georgia State University. I Didn'T Do So Hot This Past Semester. I Got A Gpa Of 2.7. I Ended Up Getting A Reality Check And I'M Trying To Get As High A Gpa As Possible! My Goal Is To Graduate From Ga State Within 3 Years! My Major Is Accounting(: And I'M Hoping To Go To Berkeley Or Columbia [Ny] For Law School! Can Anyone Give Me Any Tips To Achieve My Goal Of Becoming A Corporate Lawyer? Any Tips On Lsat Scores, And How To Stay Focused? Anything Would Help!
Hey life is beautiful,
Don't listen to PE2008 - if he really believes that, he has no clue what he's talking about. In-house counsel jobs are extremely sought-after.
As far as how to go into corporate law (which, for the most part, isn't in-house counsel; rather, it's working for a large firm doing corporate litigation), you really do want to go to the best school you can get into.
This most likely means NOT graduating in 3 years. With a poor first semester, you're going to need all the time you can to bring that GPA up as high as possible. For Columbia or (especially) Berkeley, you want at least a 3.75, higher if possible. That's going to be tough if you only have 5 more semesters with which to raise you GPA. I might even suggest going the other way - 5 years to graduate - if you can afford it. That will give you enough time to raise your GPA enough (assuming you do exceptionally well from here on out).
Accounting is a solid major - it gives you a skill set that's in demand right now (JD/CPA is a combo that's very highly sought by corporate firms).
As far as the LSAT goes, you're going to want to break 170 in order to have a decent shot at the top schools. The higher the better. When the time comes to take the exam, make sure to prep for it a decent amount. The average amount of time spent studying for it is 3 months, about 4 hours, 6 days a week. It seems like a lot, but there's a lot riding on it.
