Business Law Help Please?
Sara Likes To Shop Online At Amazon. One Day She Purchased A Lamp From Amazon. While It Was Being Shipped To Her Via The United States Postal Service, The Mail Truck On Which Her Package With The Lamp Was Traveling Got Into An Accident And All Of The Contents In The Truck Were Destroyed. Is Amazon Required To Replace The Lamp? Make Sure To Fully Explain The Specific Law, And Why Or Why Not.
Generally this requires looking at the contract. If the contract says Amazon is not responsible for goods in transit then no, they are not required to replace it. Amazon probably put something like that in there. The carrier generally is responsible for refunding the delivery cost but not the value of the goods.
If you're looking for the law then this is actually a difficult thing. First, you have to figure out what the forum is going to be and this involves various civil procedure matters. Not only that, you have to figure out what law the forum is going to use. Generally, in contractual matters regarding performance this is the place most relevant to the performance of the contract. However, you can put in the contract what the choice of law and forum selection are going to be and Amazon definitely did this. Pretty much all corporate sellers do. Check out their contracts on the site. What do you have to agree to before buying something? It'll probably say something in it about choice of law.
Once you know Amazon's choice of law, you can look up that state's statutes in regards to commercial agreements. Many states have adopted the Uniform Commercial Code, a framework of laws created by legal organizations but not necessarily adopted by all state legislatures. If the choice of law state did not adopt the UCC then you'll have to look for the state's own statutes on contractual law. If the state has adopted, relevant rules in this case are UCC 2-601 through 2-616. Also, if you look at UCC 2-102, adoption of UCC Article 2 means it does not impair any statutes governing contract law regarding consumers if they are already in place. So you'll have to make sure there are no such statutes. If there are, go there instead.
Court System, Defense Lawyer?
Say Jane Is Going Being Tried For Killing Tom. Does Jane Tell Her Lawyer That She Really Did It? Does She Lie To Him Too? If She Tells The Lawyer The Truth, Does He Have To Report It?
Such a complicated question.
Here are some things to remember. First, the lawyer cannot tell anyone ANYTHING you tell him in confidence except to prevent a violent crime. HOWEVER ...
The lawyer cannot knowingly put on perjured testimony.
Also, remember, that the lawyer's job is to provide the best defense possible ... not necessarily the truth. The prosecutor's job is to put on the most damning evidence possible, not necessarily the truth. Only the jury is charged with finding the truth ... from the two versions presented (which may be neither version provided).
Under these circumstances, the lawyer is looking for evidence that will help provide reasonable doubt to the jury.
Most defense lawyers (including me) do not ask their client if they are guilty, or what happened. They pour over all of the police reports, interview witnesses, and try to find holes in the prosecution's theory.
Why not ask the defendant? Because, usually, the defendant will lie to the lawyer, which just puts the lawyer in a worse position than if he did not ask in the first place. The defendant does not believe that her lawyer will work as hard if the lawyer knows she is guilty (wrong assumption). So she lies, putting the lawyer on the wrong track.
Further, in most cases, the defendant will not testify. The jury WANTS to hear from the defendant, but the jury will usually not believe her. Why? Because most defendants have a criminal record, and besides, juries believe that most defendants will lie to save themselves (and they would not have been arrested if they were not guilty). Anyone who is telling the truth will have inconsistencies in their stories, and if there is even one such inconsistency ,... the jury disbelieves all of them. And if there are no such inconsistencies ... the prosecutor argues that the story is just too perfect.
Then, the defendant, having lied to the lawyer, comes out with a new version (the truth?) Can the lawyer put on this new story? What about his obligation to not put on perjured testimony?
The good lawyer will talk to the client close to the trial, knowing all of the evidence. He will ask very specific questions to determine whether to call the defendnat, and explains how the testimony can effect the outcome .... good or bad.
So, the answer is this ... do not lie to the lawyer. He will not tell anyone what you said. But only answer the lawyer's questions. He wants specific information so he can form his best defense for you. Your version only becomes important if it comes down to you testifying, and if that happens, he will help you understand the implications of each part of your story.
Remember this ... the lawyer is the only person in the entire system who will be fighting just for you. The police do not do this. The prosecutor wants you in jail too. The judge is not on your side, at the very best, he is neutral (but believes you are guilty, because most defendants are). The only person fighting for you ... whether you are innocent or guilty ... is your lawyer.
Does A Power Of Attorney Override A Will?
I don't know what you mean by "override" - a power of attorney is a completely different document from a will. A power of attorney generally gives Person B authority to handle Person A's legal and financial affairs while Person A is alive but incapacitated in some way. Upon the death of Person A, the power of attorney becomes null and void and no longer gives Person B any authority over Person A's assets or affairs. A will is a document in which Person A can name who they want to be the executor of their estate *after they're dead* and directs the disposition of their assets *after they're dead*. Until Person A dies, their will has no legal effect and is just a piece of paper. There is no overlap between a power of attorney and a will so there is no way one can "override" the other.
How Do You Become A Judge? What Is The Difference Between An Attorney And A Lawyer?
I Want To Know What It Takes To Become A Judge And If You Would Have To Start Out As A Defense Attorney Or Something. And When You Are A Defense Attorney Do You Have To Defend Certain People When You Are Just Starting Out? Like I Wouldnt Want To Defend A Scumbag That I Know Is Guilty. Please Let Me Know And Personal Experiences Would Be Great.
There is no difference between an attorney or lawyer - one and the same. They are sometimes referred to as Esquire as well. Most of the people defense attorneys defend are probably guilty - if you don't like that then join the prosecutor's office. Low man on the totem pole in a law firm gets the types of cases no one else wants. Of course, there are attorneys who specialize in other fields e.g. tax attorneys, corporate attorneys, civil litigation, etc.
Some judges are elected. Federal judges are appointed for life so it's all in who you know and the reputation you've earned. Many federal judges contribute to their political party and are rewarded if their candidate wins. Some federal judges are magistrates which means that theirs is not a political appointment and they aren't guaranteed the job for life.
How Do I Become A Juvenile Court Judge In Ontario, Canada?
I Know I Have To Go To Law School, And Then Practice Law, But I Want The Details, For Example If You Are Appointed, Or You Apply, And Etc.
No such thing as a juvenile court judge, really. There are Provincial Court judges and Superior Court judges, either one of which can end up sitting in criminal matters (though the former are far more likely), including matters under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
In order to become either, you need at least ten years at bar (that is, as a practicing lawyer), and in practical terms usually much more.
More to the point, you don't go in with the hopes or expectation of becoming a judge. In my first year of law school, my criminal law professor pointed out to the class that we really don't want judges who consider a seat on the bench to be their ambition, so lawyers who make it known at an early stage in their career that they want to become judges...well, they don't.
He was appointed to the bench a couple of months later, which if nothing else suggests that he may have known what he was talking about.
There is an application process, however - judicial vacancies get posted by the Provincial government. The appointment is ultimately made by the Attorney General, but in consultation with members of the legal profession and judiciary.
ETA: A license to practice law in Ontario is sufficient to practice any and every area, subject to professional responsibility requirements that require a lawyer to ensure that works he takes on is within his competence. Specializations or practices limited to certain areas of law, however, are quite common, especially in Toronto and other major cities.
Whether or not you could limit your practice to a certain area depends largely on its financial viability.
"Juvenile" law...isn't really a term we use. I'm assuming that you're talking about the subcategory of criminal law dealing with juvenile offenders. I'm not familiar with any lawyers who practice exclusively in that area, but that's not to say that it isn't possible.
Doesn'T Security/Law Enforcement Pay Well (For The Most Part)?
I Live In California Btw.
I'M Quitting The Food Industry, (I Work At In N Out) To Get Into Security.
I Know That Depending On The Location, The Company You Work For, Etc You Can Make Quite A Bit.
Security pays low and law enforcement pays well. In CA, pay for a security guard is around 9-12 dollars an hour. For a police officer, its starts at 60,000 and upwards. To get started in security, you will beed to get certified. Taking the guard card class, getting fingerprinted, and submitting your application to that state. In all it costs about 250 dollars to get started so make sure you save at least that much before you quit your job. Actually don't quit your job until after you have gotten all your certs and have found a security guard job. Check Craigslist for job like you are already doing and see what is available. You can also walk into security offices at like shopping malls and ask for an application.
