How To Be Proactive In My Studying For The Lsat, Exactly What Needs To Happen With The Lsat To Actually Get In To Law School... I'M Clueless
I Would Love Some Help
Are you near a law school? If so get a tour, sit down w/admissions counselor about their requisites and see if (in the fall, of course) you can sit in on a first year class.
The ABSOLUTE first thing you MUST do is register (free) at www.lsac.org They have a slew of resources regarding law school, LSAT prep and finding the right school.
As far as being proactive on the LSAT you need to practice... there are tons of books with practice exams and even free online courses.
You can take your LSAT nearly any time really, but take it within a year of applying (your last semester of your undergrad if you plan on going right into law school).
Being an English major - you should be used to all the reading, reading, reading... It's a good major for law school. You may also be able to take some "pre law" electives during your undergrad - those may give you some exposure as to what law school profs want.
Just food for thought: WHY do you want to go to law school? WHAT do you want to do with your law degree- practice? be a legal analyst for a TV/Radio/News outlet? Look for a school that has a program that can concentrate your studies on the area you're interested in.

Getting the education does ot make you a lawyer no matter where you go to school.
Each state has a Bar association which administers the license to practice law. Contact your state's group and find out what the requirements for a license are. That will tell you what education is necessary and what examinations are required (the Bar Exam) prior to any license.
THEN find out if the school you want to attend has classes that will be accepted toward that license.

You should be more concerned with going back to school! God lord, look at your grammer.
Tell the lawyers that you're ignorant and are unfit to judge your peers.
What Are The Different Kinds Of Law Practices?
What Is Under Criminal Practice? Immigration Practice? And So On...
I Hope My Question Made Sense.
It makes perfect sense and it's a good question. I doubt I can remember all the areas of practice, but immigration law, tax law and bankruptcy law are true specialies that require constant continuing education. Other areas are real estate, land use and development and environmental law--those are in high demand now. If you can stand the emotions, family law (divorce) is a lucrative area of practice. If you're willing to settle for less pay in exchange for great benefits, govenment law is a good area. Personal injury is hit and miss because attys only get paid when we win. If you care about the protection of society, being a prosecutor is a good job with lower pay but good benefits. If you do criminal law (defense), that's very hectic. You have a lot of short time deadlines. Employment and labor law is a tough field. It's hard to win for the employee. In my state, Indian law and water law are lucrative (we have 21 tribes). The big money is in land use and development/real estate. Some attys get rich on personal injury, but that's a tough field. Dealing with the insurance companies is no picnic. Hope I caught what you were asking.
Parents Kicking Me Out Of The House? Philippine Legal Advice?
I Need Help, Im 20 Yrs Old And Have One More Year Of College. My Relationship With My Mom Has Severely Deteriorated To The Point She Wants Me To Leave. Shell Pay For Tuition And Give Me 3000 Pesos (75 Dollars A Month). Im So Screwed. Thats Not Nearly Enough To Live. Im Graduating And Overloaded With Work And I Dont Know How Ill Manage This. They Can Afford Much Much More, And I Read In The Constitution That Parents Should Support Their Children Until They Are Able, Irregardless Of Age, Can I Do Something To Legally Compel Them To Support Me? P.S. I Can Work But The Minimum Wage Here Is Like 5 Dollars A Day, So I Still Cant Afford The Cost Of Living, Help!
your of age now and your parents can tell you to leave home.
As far as funding your college education you may be entitled to a hardship grant from your college, who should also be able to help you cope with the transition of living independently, and help you find accommodation.
It may be possible to apply for maintenance through the courts from your parents however a court would also expect that you possibly maintained certain grades and may have to find a part time job to help support yourself.
The court may take the attitude that your future willl be blighted by your parents failing to sponsor your college education. They wil also be realistic though and would look at your parents expenditure.
They have there own home and bills possibly other children to support and if the money is not there it cant be found.
You may have to take out a student loan and repay it after graduation.
If you can, build some bridges with your parents and try and stay at home, you whole future could depend upon you being able to accept your parents rules.

Nearly every state has passed laws that allow garnishment or attachment of wages, tax refunds and sometimes insurance settlements. It's not an attorney's lobby that promotes this result. It's the state government that demands repayment of any public assistance. You are at their mercy. Because states are under tremendous pressure to cut state expenses and keep taxes low, they go after the easiest target, the father of the children who received the public assistance. They are so desperate to collect from anyone else but taxpayers, they will attach almost anything. Some states will also suspend licenses for failure to pay back child support, including driver's licenses, CDL, trade licenses for electricians and plumbers and even professional licenses for doctors, accountants and, yes, even, lawyers who happen to be dead-beat dads.
