What Is Intellectual Property Law?
I'M Interested In This Field Of The Law, And I Would Like To Get As Much Information On This As Possible. If Anyone Would Be Able To Tell Me Some Of The Tasks Involved In A Job Within This Field I Would Really Appreciate It. Also Just Any Type Of Information On This. I Am Currently An Undergraduate Student And Right Now I Am Researching On The Different Fields Of The Law.
Intellectual property law is basically law that helps protect musicians, artist, writers, etc. IP can help you if you want to become an entertainment lawyer or if you just want to be an agent or manager. This law protects copyrights, patents, trademarks and any other related rights. Intellectual property rights give the creator exclusive rights to their creations. So, the creator can share their creation and the idea won't be stolen.
I'm not a lawyer but I am trying to go to law school. Then get a LLM in IP law so I can become an agent.
Can I Sue My Real Estate Attorney For Malpractice?
My House Sold. During The 5 Day Attorney Period My Attorney Signed Off On The Liquidated Damages Clause Without Conferring W Me. My Real Estate Agent Never Even Went Over The Contract With Me To Begin With. I Quit My Job, Put Contracts On Other Properties, Took A Job In Another City And The Buyer Backed Out On Me 2 Days Before Closing. Now I Have No Job And Gave Half My Furniture Away. Now The Real Estate Company Just Called Me And Told Me They Were Keeping The 5000 Earnest Money On Top Of It All!!! Many Attorneys Also Modify The Contract To Say No Sale No Commission. But Mine Only Agreed To Something Against Me. And He Was Recommended By The Real Estate Agent. So I Trusted All These People. If I Dont Sign The Termination Letter From The Buyer Releasing Them And They Wrote Clearly In That Letter The Earnest Money Was To Go To The Seller, Can The Real Estate Company Take The Money If I Dont Release It?????
Sounds like you made all of your decisions and took all of your actions based on the belief that the sale would go thru.
Real Estate sales are often 'iffy' and, unless you had a cast iron sales agreement with your buyer, your actions seem to have been premature.
If you HAD such an agreement, you may have a cause of action against the BUYER..
If you did not, did your attorney have your authorization to sign documents for you or to enter into agreements in your name (that is not a usual practice). If not, then you had an opportunity to read, review, and comment on all of the documents that you DID sign and that is the reason they have the right ot keep the ernest money.
Escrow will give the earnest money to whomever the existing sale of contract directs it. If you wish to contest that you are going to need yet another attorney... sorry.
College - Law School? Lawyer?
Yes I Want To Be A Lawyer. I Am Thinking Of Going Into Family Law. It Interests Me Most.
Anyways, What Should I Get My Under-Graduate Degree In?
Liberal Arts, Political Science, History, Or Physiology? I Mean Which One Would Benefit Me Most? Add Any Ones I Missed.
Thanks So Much!
1) High school GPA/resume
Will this matter when you apply to law school? Well, let me ask you something: did you save some baby mink whales while training for the 2012 Olympics? No? Then don’t worry about high school. The only part of your law school application that will be reflective of your high school experience is the undergrad that you decide to attend and to which you gain admission.
2) Which college should I pick?
The quality of your undergrad institution will play, at most, a minor role in the admissions process. Obviously you want to skip most online institutions, as many are not reputable and most aren’t well regarded. However, outside of that, it’s all about even. Of course, all else being equal, the Harvard student is getting in over the East West Virginia University student, but when is all else equal?
During the decision process, visit the school, talk with current students, and sit in on a class if possible. Figure out which environment will challenge you and allow you to thrive. If you can see yourself being happy at a certain school, go there. You’ll have a much easier time maintaining a high GPA if you’re in an environment in which you feel at home.
3) What should I major in?
If your goal is to set yourself up to get into the best law school you can, then you want to pick a major in which you’ll receive the highest GPA. Much more than the classes you take, the degree you receive, and the major you pick, your GPA will determine law school admissions decisions. Avoid basketweaving or Simpsons-ology and any other major will be, more or less, equal in the eyes of law schools.
I would recommend finding something in which you have a great interest, as then going to classes will be interesting and you’ll have an easier time focusing. Picking a major you love will afford you the chance to get a great GPA without having to ‘try’, as it will feel more like you’re doing something you want than trying to learn difficult and obscure material.
As a quick aside, most pre-law or legal studies programs are viewed as something as a joke by those associated with law schools. They’re generally law school lite, only without the great taste of Diet Dr. Pepper (because you kids don’t know what Miller Lite tastes like, right?). Most law professors view the knowledge gained in them (and the writing skills developed) as a detriment to a proper legal education, as you have to unlearn some of the stuff you think you know.
4) Are there any specific classes I should take in college to prepare me for law school?
You should be taking classes that focus on writing, analysis, and logic. While you’ll have to relearn how to write and analyze when you get to law school (legal research and writing is different than anything you’ll do up until then), having a baseline off of which to work (a knowledge of grammar, for instance) will give you a leg up. And logic will be the same, whether it’s in an undergrad course, the LSAT, or a class on Contract Law (which can be very logic-intensive).
5) What about this whole LSAT thing?
Your GPA is important, but your LSAT score (aka the Law SAT) is the largest factor in your application package. When the time rolls around, make sure you prepare for it. The test doesn’t ask you questions based on knowledge – it asks you questions to test your ability to think and reason. Those are skills that you can develop by properly prepping for the exam. While you’re years away from that (I repeat, you’re years away from it!), practice books, old tests, and LSAT classes are the best way to get ready for the exam that will, more or less, decide your law school fate.
Seriously, though, go do something foolish whenever you start to think about the LSAT. You shouldn’t worry about it until your Junior year.
6) And extracurriculars?
Find some extracurriculars in which you have an intense interest. Sports, drama, art, Future Farmers of America – wherever your passion lies, go for it. Pick the ones in which you have a serious interest and stick with them, building up a great resume that highlights something interesting about yourself. Fill leadership positions. That will show your potential as a leader, which is something that law schools love in their applicants.
7) Anything else?
Enjoy college. A lot. Seriously, have a good time.
But not too good of a time.
Skip those parties that you know will get busted by the cops, don’t give an officer lip if he asks you for some ID when you’re drunk, and make sure that you keep your grades up. If your average beer consumption per day is higher than your GPA, it’s time to refocus (but, on the other hand, impressive!).
And good luck!
Has Anyone Ever Worked In A Law Office Before?
I Had A Friend Of Mine Who Worked At A Law Office Before As A Receptionist And She Said That The Other Employees Were So Rude And Obnoxious To Her. She Also Said They Were Very Snotty As Well Especially The Attorneys. Anyone Else Had A Similiar Experience?
I work in one. Your friend is overly sensitive. People are jerks everywhere you go and people are nice everywhere you go. Law practice can be stressful and lawyers do vent sometimes. Personally, I really like the professional enviroment. I'm only here 35 hours a week and the rest of my life is the part that counts. I'm just here for the paycheck and at 5:00, I leave the office and don't give it another second's thought.
What To Do If I Was Dropped Unfairly By My Lawyer And Any Lawyer Referrals In Southern California?
I Was Discharged From An Attorney For Reasons That Seem Set Up And Personal? I Was Referred To The Lawyer By A Man Who I Was Involved With,And The Nature Of The Relationship Has Changed As I Did Not Want A Relationship.The Man Supposedly Went To Our Joint Lawyer In Retaliation And Said Something Negative.The Doctors I Had Been Referred To By The Lawyer At The Same Time Said They Were Not Willing To See Me Anymore Until They Got Some Paperwork From The Lawyer (Though It Has Been A Year And It Supposedly Just Came Up). The Doctors Complained That He Isn'T Doing His Job, And Started Being Pushy And Rude With Me And Told Me I Need To Take Care Of It And Put Heat On My Lawyer.When I Defended Myself, They Said They Are Dropping Me As A Patient. They Then Complained To The Attorney About Me, And He Dropped Me, Though Thisparticular Doctor Issue Was Supposedly About The Lawyer, And Suddenly They All Said Now I Am The Problem.How Do I Avoid Getting Stuck With Bills?
Your lawyer might have dropped you because of your friend. But for our doctors to also drop you makes me wonder if you are being belligerent. Professionals will not stand for that. Try being polite and rational and find another lawyer and doctor.
