Interested In Goign To Law School?
I Was Thinking About Minoring In Political Science Or Spanish. I'M Majoring In Business. Which Minor Do You Recommend If I Want To Go To Law School?
Law schools don't look for any particular major or minor at all--in fact, almost any academic subject is a fine choice when it comes to picking a major or minor that will look good on a law school application. Although there are certainly "traditional" subjects that students interested in eventually pursuing law undertake (economics, political science, history, etc.), there is no one "perfect" major or minor when it comes to preparing you for law school. There are some subjects (particularly those that aren't strongly academic, such as the arts) that may place you at a slight disadvantage but, even so, plenty of students in those fields get admitted to law school every year. My suggestion would be to minor in something that complements your major. For example, if you major in Business, minor in Economics; if you major in Spanish, minor in Literature. The primary concern should be to do something you love; the more you like it, the greater your chances of doing extremely well in school, which will translate to a high GPA, which will in turn increase your chances of admission.
Remember, though, that the key is not so much what you major or minor in but, rather, what you do during your college years, academically. Aim to do the following:
1. Pick a college major (and applicable minor) that will require a lot of reading- and research-intensive classes. This will not only prepare you for law classes (which themselves are incredibly research- and reading-heavy), but it will also demonstrate to law schools, when you apply, that you can handle the academic load of law school.
2. Keep an upward grade trend throughout college. This means that your grades either get stronger as you go through school, or start off strong and remain there for all 4 years of college. Most law schools will want to see GPAs of 3.5 or above (the closer you can get to a 4.0, the better). For Columbia Law, I would recommend that you try to keep your GPA at 3.8+.
3. Take a challenging class load: Intro classes are okay for freshman and (maybe) sophomore year of college, but once you get to junior and senior year, your focus should be on upper-level classes and seminars that allow you to really hone in and focus on your specific interests within the major. And, as always, keep your grades up throughout.
4. Establish rapport with your professors (particularly during your junior and senior years of college). You can do this by attending office hours, working for them as a research assistant, and talking to them after class. They will be the ones writing your letters of recommendation, and will only be able to write effective, overwhelmingly positive ones is if they have specific, anecdotal knowledge of you and can favorably compare you to other students in your class.

Right now you are fighting a losing battle, its unlikely your visitation or custody arrangement will change in your favor.
You cannot provide a safe and stable home for your son since you do not have one and you know this. The best thing you can do for your son right now is leave him with his dad. Though it hurts you to be without him emotionally, you will be hurting him more if he is with you right now. Moving from place to place, not knowing where you will sleep or where your next meal is going to come from is not a stable childhood for any child.
Though you don't seem to have a good support system (family) its not their responsibility to provide for you or your son, its yours.
The best thing you can do for your son, is make a better life for yourself first. Get an education (get in school if you aren't now) and get a stable job where you can provide for him and work with his father on visitation until then. There are lots of young parents who have rough starts, you can go to work, school and be a parent at the same time, many before you have done it and many after you will.
There are lots of programs out there to help with schooling. You likely qualify for grants or if you need to get student loans. Student loans can defer payments until after you graduate, however if ultimately needs to be paid back. With no education and minimum wage jobs you will have no more in life than you do right now and your son will suffer because of that.
This is where as a parent, you need to do what is best for your son instead of what you like the best, you need to put his needs first. Right now, with you is not what is best for him. Its quite rare a mother loses custody unless there are some dire circumstances or the court sees them as unfit or they can't provide a safe environment for the child.
Once you are on your feet and fully self supporting, peition the court for shared custody. Until then, work with his father to co-parent and it will make visitation easier.
First Time Offense Felony For Marijuana Possession?
My Boyfriend Has A Medical Card And He Got Arrested Yesterday In South Los Angeles After Work For Marijuana/ Im Not Sure How Much He Had On Him, But The Little Time I Had To Talk To Him He Told Me He Got Busted For This Bottle Of Oil That Is Used To Make Cupcakes And Brownies. He Said They Thought It Was A Controlled Substance. He Always Carried His Backpack With His Stuff In The Trunk And That'S Were The Bottle Of Oil Was. He Is Currently In Jail And He Has A Court Date Tomorrow Morning. They Gave Me His Booking Number And I Saw On The Inmate Locator That They Are Charging Him With A F (Felony) And Bail Is Set At $20,000
Hes Not The Type Of Person To Get Caught Up For This. He Has A Valid Medical Card And The Worst Thing He Has Even Been Involved Was A Cell Phone Ticket. Nothing Major.
What Can Happen After His Court Date? Since He Is Being Charged With A Felony, Does This Mean He Is Going To Be Locked Up For Years? I Would Like To Know As Much Info As Possible Please!
I Cant Eat, I Cant Sleep And I Feel So Scared.
I Havent Talked To Him Since But I Wonder If He Has Contacted His Family. My Friend Told Me Not To Involve Myself In Telling His Family Because They Might Automatically Think Its My Fault Or I Had Something To Do With It. Also They Only Speak Vietnamese.
Please Help. Im So Scared And I Have No Idea Whats Going To Happen. I Am Scared
He needs a lawyer. Fast. And just because he was charged with a felony doesnt mean he will be convicted of a felony. A good lawyer can get it down to a possession charge and lots of probation. Get a lawyer. Fast.

When I Was In Jail, I Became Sick And Still Need Medical Attention. What Kind Of Lawyer Should I Use To Sue?
I Do Know That This Jail Has Been Sued. This Place Is Supposed To Be Shut Down. They Throw You In Asbestos-Filled Cells With Illegal Immigrants. This Place Is Over Populated, And They Have Even Fed Us Pigeon! I Have A Form That Needs To Be Filled, And I Have No Idea How To Do This Myself. I Seriously Need Lawyer Assistance, But I Don'T Know Who To Ask. This Jail Is Located In Phoenix, Arizona. There Is Something Set Aside Called &Quot;Hart Vs. Hill.&Quot; I Have An &Quot;Inmate Legal Service&Quot; Form To Take Action Against Durango Jail. People Have Done This, Successfully, But I Don'T Know Who Can Help Me. I Would Love Some Advice! Help!
Well, since there are no asbestos-filled cells in the united states that feed inmates pigeon, I might suggest contacting a fictional lawyer. They are the most qualified at handling cases like this.
Durango jail is operating with full authorization of the state and has a licensed medical facility staffed 24 hours per day as required by law. You would not have a case simply because you got sick while you were there. You would need to prove that your illness is directly caused by their gross negligence or willful misconduct, and that they failed to respond with appropriate medical attention after you followed proper procedures to bring the illness to their attention. I have no idea why you bother mentioning illegal immigrants. They have nothing to do with anything.
Your inmate legal service form is fine...if you are still locked up. You are not still locked up, however, so this form will do nothing for you. You could always try contacting a lawyer who specializes in litigation, but I will be very surprised if you find one willing to take your case on contingency since your chances of winning are almost non-existent.
Note to Tippy's Mom: Although I find the irony quite amusing, the word is spelled "retarded".
Note to Ms. Kitty: Malpractice lawyers only handle cases against doctors, hospitals, and medical clinics, not jails.
Asbestos lawyer? They have asbestos lawyers where you are from?
Are You Emploed As A Lawyer? How Long Did It Take You To Get Work And Did You Have To Re-Locate?
Not a lawyer but husband works for a prestigious law firm in Los Angeles. The really good firms pick from the cream of the crop from prime law schools (Harvard, Yale, Stanford...).
It took a co-worker's daughter about 9 months to find work with a law firm. She went to law school in San Diego.
