Advice About Law School?
Knowing What You Know Now...
Any Advice For An Aspiring Attorney In Community College? (I'Ve Already Been Accepted To A State School, Just Finishing One Semester)
But Then What? I'Ll Be An English Major But I Have No Idea What To Do To Start Preparing
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.
Is It Possible To Go To Law School To Become A Lawyer With An On Line School?
I Want To Go To Law School And Become A Lawyer In The U.S.A.
But It Would Be Much Easier If I Could Take All My Law School Classes On Line.
Instead Of Having To Travel To School Or Sleep In A Nearby Dormitory.
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.
Can Someone Please Help Me With My Legal Research?
I'M Doing Research Regarding The Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. The Issue Is Whether Or Not A Caregiver Is Allowed To Give His/Her Qualified Patient An Ingestible Form Of Marijuana Due To Complications That Prevent Him From Smoking It.
So Far, I Know That It Is Legal But I Only Found Out Because Of The Q&Amp;A At The Michigan.Gov Website But I Still Can'T Find Any Cases To Back It Up. Can Someone Please Help Me By Giving Me Key Terms To Type In The Westlaw Database? I'Ve Been Searching For Hours :(.
I authored the brief that resulted in what was for a time the leading Michigan Court of Appeals case on medical marihuana in Michigan (People v Redden). The Westlaw search query that you want to use is "medical +2 (marijuana marihuana) +2 act & ingest!" (without the quotes).
This search query brings back 8 cases, including the case People v Carruthers, 301 Mich App 590; 837 NW2d 16 (2013). In Carruthers, the Michigan Court of Appeals held that using marijuana brownies violated the law because they did not contain "usable marijuana" under the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. The Court reasoned as follows:
“By excluding resin from the definition of ‘usable marihuana,’ as contrasted with the definition of ‘marihuana,’ and defining ‘usable marihuana’ to mean only ‘the dried leaves and flowers of the marihuana plant, and any mixture or preparation thereof,’ MCL 333.26423(k) (emphasis added), the drafters clearly expressed their intent not to include resin, or a mixture or preparation of resin, within the definition of ‘usable marihuana.’ They therefore expressed their intent not to include a mixture or preparation of an extract of resin. Consequently, an edible product made with THC extracted from resin is excluded from the definition of ‘usable marihuana.’ Rather, under the plain language of the MMMA, the only ‘mixture or preparation’ that falls within the definition of ‘usable marihuana’ is a mixture or preparation of ‘the dried leaves and flowers of the marihuana plant . . . .’” Id.
So to answer your question, the manner in which the marijuana is ingested into the body is not the determinative inquiry. Rather, the dispositive question is whether an ingestible contains "usable marijuana" as defined by the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. My understanding is that ingestibles are generally created using resin, which Carruthers says violates the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. According to the holding in Carruthers, an ingestible would not violate the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act if but only if it constituted "a mixture or preparation of ‘the dried leaves and flowers of the marihuana plant . . . .’” Id.
I would also offer the following two caveats. First, be careful relying on legal opinions such as the Q&A at the michigan.gov website because it is impossible to determine who wrote the content or when it was last updated, and it will not constitute a defense if the information is incorrect, which appears to be the case in this instance. Second, the Michigan appellate courts have essentially eviscerated the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act and continue to do so with extremely narrow interpretations of that law. So always be sure to err on the side of caution by drawing the most conservative conclusions that you can when interpreting this law or the cases that construe it. While this is not what most medical marihuana clients / users want to hear, it is the reality under the current Michigan judiciary. I hope this of help. Good Luck with your research.
When A School Searches You Can You Refuse To Comply Until You Speak With A Parent Or Lawyer?
I Know That A School Can Search You Or Your Belongings Without Probable Cause. All They Need Is Reasonable Cause. But I Was Wondering If You Told Them That You Refuse To Comply With Them Until You Speak With A Lawyer Or Parent If They Could Do Anything. Isn'T It A Persons Right To A Fair Trial With Legal Representation? Thank You For Answering.
They are under no duty to wait for a lawyer - not even the police have that duty. As for your parents - better check with them before you pull this kind of stunt. If one of your parents gets pulled out of work because you've decided to "stand on your rights" to hide your cell phone, my guess is that you're a dead duck.
Schools have the right to search you and your belongings for contraband. If you will not cooperate, they can call the police and have you subdued.
A school search does not fall under the right to a fair trial - best start reading Supreme Court decisions, little lawyer.
What Type Of Attorney Is Needed For Estate Issues With Siblings After Father'S Passing?
We Had No Problems Until The Settling Of The Estate Began Taking A Long Time. We Split Cost For An Estate Attorney. My Sister Was Made Executrix. I Believe My Siblings Are Not Being Honest With Me And Are Trying To Take My Inheritance Or Part Of It.
We Have An Estate Attorney. He Seems To Be Working More With My Sister, The Executrix, Than Me. Each Time I Call Him He Tells Her Everything I Asked Him. She Is Paying Him, But With Our Inheritance Money.
Do I Need A Real Estate Attorney Or Another Estate Attorney To Protect My Interests In My Father'S Home And Properties?
I Don'T Trust The Attorney We Are Using.
Any attorney who specializes in wills and trusts, probate law, and/or elder law.
You can hire an attorney if you like, but it will probably be a waste of money.
Of COURSE the estate attorney is working more with your sister, than with you. Your sister is the executrix - she is the person who has the legal authority to retain an attorney on behalf of the estate and she is the one who is representing the interests of the estate. The estate attorney is representing the ESTATE - not the beneficiaries. You have no right to or expectation of confidentiality with the estate's attorney.
Your sister is paying the estate attorney with proceeds from the ESTATE. This is not your inheritance money unless or until the estate is fully settled. If you hire an attorney, you will have to pay for that attorney out of your own pocket and this will drain more money out of the estate to deal with your attorney. It is also likely that your father's will included a clause or a provision that could cause you to be disinherited if you make any waves with regard to his estate.
It is interesting that you don't "trust" this attorney, but this attorney is required to act as a competent professional - and he risks getting disbarred if he does anything dishonest.
I Have One More Thing About The Registry?
I Am Going To Get A Lawyer But Everything I Am Reading Online Says That I Only Had 30 Days After The Baby Was Born To Do Anything It Says That If You Do Not File With The Registry You Lose All Your Rights To Fight Adoption.
Well, you had no idea there WAS a registry. You had no idea there was an adoption. Get an attorney, and let him or her worry about the legalities. Good lawyers KNOW these "registries" are a joke, and they also know how underhanded most adoption agencies are. They just want the money, and they get no money if the adoption does not go through. Keep us posted, Kyle, and go get your son.
