What Should I Major In If I Want To Go On To Law School And Eventually Practice Real-Estate Law?
I Want To Be A Real-Estate Attorney. Tell Me How To Get There. I'M In Highschool.
This is from a really helpful article I read (written by an attorney):
How do law school admission committees evaluate people with different undergraduate majors? Are there good majors and bad majors for law school applications? I wouldn’t quite say there are bad majors – I think there are good things about most areas of study, and if you have good grades then you’re absolutely set.
Law schools do not want to fill their classes with political science majors. Where is the diversity in that? Law schools want people from different backgrounds, and from different schools for that matter.
1. Majors with scientific fields: You often risk having a lower GPA, but it can be excused because of the difficult curriculum and lab hours. Of course, it also helps to make the case that you want to be a patent/IP lawyer if your have a science/math background. However, it can also risk looking like you really would have preferred to go to med school but you just didn’t have the GPA. If you did well in a science major, you will find that law schools like that and it will help you in the admissions process generally.
2. Pre-Law Majors: Law and Society, Pre-Law, Political Science, and Criminal Justice studies show you have a sincere interest in the subject matter. It’s especially helpful if you do a thesis and/or significant academic or internship work to supplement the curriculum. However, lackluster grades in these subjects will not impress an admission office. A 3.3 GPA in poli sci is not the same as a 3.3 in biomedical engineering or physics.
3. Art/Music Majors: A BFA makes things tricky, but if you do well academically and do a thesis or have something to show for yourself other than being an unemployed actor, then this absolutely works. Actually, I think Art History is one of the best majors for preparing you for law school because it teaches you to look at something you’ve never seen before and apply the facts you’ve learned to determine what you’re looking at. That’s pretty much a law school exam in a nutshell. Anything that shows you’ve done some serious writing will help. Music composition shows you’re a thinking person.
4. Business Majors: Marketing, not so impressive but if you have strong grades and showed a sincere interest in serious things then it’s fine. Economics is better – shows more analysis and academic inclination.
5. Philosophy: Again, writing and analysis. Great stuff.
The question is this – knowing how law schools view your major, what can you do to make up for that weakness? If you haven’t had much writing in your curriculum, how about writing for your school paper or trying to get research published? This is just one example of a way you can use your weaknesses to build your law school applications.
1. Pick a major that sincerely interests you.
2. Get the best possible grades in that major.
This is because law schools care a lot about GPA, and while they take into account the reputation and rigor of the undergraduate school you go to (on the theory that, at a better/tougher undergrad school, a high GPA means more than the same GPA from a less competitive undergrad school), a higher-ranked school will *not* make up for a much lower GPA. So, if the factors 1-3 above are all about the same for these two schools, go to the one you like better and will work harder, so you can get as high a GPA as you can.
GPA and LSAT score are the 2 most important things in law school admission. Going to a competitive undergrad school will give you a "boost" in how your GPA is viewed, but your GPA itself is still most important.

A Few Questions About Lawyers?
How Exactly Are They Paid? I Know It'S By The Hour, But How Do They Count Up The Hours Of Work They Did? Also, Do They Get More Money If They Win The Case?
In Court, Are They The One Who Questions The Witnesses, And Other People On The Stand, Or Does The Judge To That?
How Hard Is It To Become A Lawyer? What Is The Most Exciting Type Of Lawyer To Become?
That is a lot of questions. Briefly, lawyers get paid several ways, hourly, flat fee, contingency, or a combination of both. Some work is more typically done on a certain fee basis. For example, personal injury is usually done on contingency for 1/3 of the recovery, no recovery lawyer gets paid nothing. Flat fee could be numerous things that happen on a routine basis and the client is charged a set price no matter how many hours a lawyer puts in, clients tend to like flat fee so that costs don't get out of hand, and they can price shop lawyers. Examples for flat fees would be simple divorces, simple bankruptcies, immigration cases, simple criminal matters, and real estate closings. Hourly cases are usually more non-routine legal work, where it is difficult to tell how much time it will take to finish the job. Most litigation is done on an hourly basis, complicated business bankruptcies, divorces where the parties are fighting over issues like assets and custody, felony criminal matters where clients have money and are facing serious prison time.
As far as court lawyers ask the bulk of questions to the witnesses, judges can instruct witnesses, like tell them to answer a question or they will be held in contempt.
It is a grind and expensive to become a lawyer in terms of educational and test requirements. However, it is easy to get into a law school and more law schools open all the time. It used to be hard to get into a law school, but now there a lot of crappy diploma mill law schools that will take almost anyone if they will pay the tuition. Law Schools make a ton of money, a lot more than med schools or dental schools, and have much larger class sizes. Jobs are scarce and pay is low for most lawyers, $35,000-$50,000 is not uncommon for job listings, even for experienced lawyers, check Craigslist, and you will have 100 attorneys apply for that one job. I went to a top 15 law school and I had classmates selling shoes and working as waiters months after law school graduation, while looking for a legal job. I never saw those stories in the glossy law school admission catalogues. Law Schools lie, and shade the truth, and in addition they do not teach you what you need to know to be a real lawyer, they teach book law or theory, so if you can't find a job and open your own practice, you operate through trial and error, try to find mentors, and hope you do not commit serious malpractice, it sucks but you do what you gotta do.
It is funny people say Oh, I want to be this or that type of lawyer, but for most people you take what you can get and are glad to have a job.
The lawyers that make the big money are around 5% of lawyers doing mostly corporate work for clients like IBM, Coke, Exxon, etc., or a small percentage of personal injury lawyers, or lawyers that opened up their own firm and got lucky.
Basically, law is a very bad career for most people, way too many lawyers, too many law schools, high tuition, limiting opportunities and salaries. If you go to law school you will most likely end up fighting hard against a stack of resumes for a $35,000-$50,000 a year job, no job, temp jobs, stagnant wages and/or dead-end jobs. Law school is turning into a scam and a deception that leaves most people in debt, with bad job prospects, and it is getting worse every year as more law schools open to greedily take tuition money, it should be criminal. I just try to get this info out to as many people as I can, and then they can at least make an informed decision.
GO medical pharmacy(less school than lawyer, shortage, and they make 100K to push pills), doctor, dentist, nurse, that is where the jobs are and will be and it is high pay that grows. Don't go to law school, it is a casino/gamble that you will most likely lose, unless you get into Harvard or your family owns a law firm.

In Washington State Child Custody Visitation Question!?
My Sons Dads (&Quot;Bob&Quot;) Visitation Schedule Is Sunday 9Am Until Tuesday 6Pm. On Saturday Nights &Quot;Bob&Quot; Usually Calls Me To Arrange The Details And Plans For Sunday. This Saturday I Did Not Get A Call, He Did Not Show Up At 9Am. But Called At 8Pm That Night. Around 730Pm His Mom Called Me Saying Bob Wants Her To Pick Up &Quot;Bob Jr.&Quot; I Asked Her To Have Him Call Me. That'S When He Called At 8Pm While I Was At My Neighbor'S House And My Cousin Gave Me The Message After 10Pm Which Was To Late To Return His Call. &Quot;Bob&Quot; Has Claimed The Reason Its So Difficult To Call Me Is Because His G/F Doesn'T Like It. On This Wednesday I Saw &Quot;Bob&Quot; Who Happen To Be With His G/F Since I Knew This Would Be The Only Time I Would See Him Until Sunday When He Picks Up &Quot;Bob Jr&Quot; I Asked Him If He Could Please Call Me It Was Important Regarding Our Child! Which He Never Did Until 8Pm Sunday Night! So Basically What I Was Wondering Was Do I Still Have To Let &Quot;Bob&Quot; Have His Visitation And Cancel The Plans I Unexpectedly Had To Make For &Quot;Bob Jr&Quot; Since His Dad Did Not Show Up? Or Is It Ok To Wait Until Next Week For &Quot;Bob&Quot; To Continue Regular Visitation? What Do You Think/Or What Would A Judge Say, Can He Get Me For Contempt, Or Not?
Frankly speaking, Bob needs to grow up and take responsibility for the child he made with you. It is grossly unfair that Bob would leave both you and his child on the hook right up to the time (or even after) as to whether or not he is going to exercise his visitation. You have the right to know if he is picking up his child so you can schedule accordingly and your child should not be left on tenderhooks as to if he is going to see his father that week!
And if Bob was old enough to make a baby with you, he is old enough to talk to you about his visitation arrangements without asking for his girlfriend's permission. He needs to put on his big boy pants and put his gf in her place...letting her know that his kid was on the scene before she was and until or unless he marries her, his number one responsibility is to his kid, and NOT her. And if she can't accept the fact that he has to communicate with you for the best interest of his child, he needs to give HER the boot!
Now as to visitation. The visitation is with your ex, not his mother, his gf, his best friend, etc. He needs to communicate with you directly or, if he refuses to do that, he needs to go back to his lawyer and set up a document (signed, dated, and witnessed) authorizing someone else to communicate with you on his behalf. Otherwise, you have the legal right to ignore any unofficial communication coming from anyone else but your ex as they have no rights in this matter. In other words, do not let anyone pick up your son in place of Bob unless you have a document authorizing it. Otherwise, Bob could say later that you didn't make the child available to him (yes, parents play games like that) as the person who called about picking the child up could have lied or been unauthorized to make that arrangement!
You need to get your lawyer to write an official letter to Bob letting him know that as the visitation is his alone, that you will not accept any communications regarding that visitation with anyone else but him unless he provides you with a signed, dated, witnessed document authorizing it. And that you will need such a signed/witnessed document each time he has someone else other than him pick up his child for the visitation.
Also, at the same time, ask your lawyer to explain to you your duty regarding his visitation times. In most documents, there is some sort of notification required that a parent is going to execute his visitation and that if the notification isn't given by a certain date/time, that visitation is cancelled for the week. If there is such a notification in your document, you need to have your lawyer make reference in that in the letter and let him know that from now on, if Bob doesn't notify you on or before that date and time that he is exercising his visitation, that visitation will be cancelled. And also say that if he habitually refuses to pick his child up for the scheduled visitation, that it will be documented and brought before the judge as you will be asking for more child support to cover the increased time and expense of taking care of the child the two of you made (he won't like that).
Now as for do you have to let Bob take the child when he shows up late for visitation? Check it with your lawyer first but I believe no. Tell him I am sorry but that since he could not be bothered to pick up his child when he was supposed to, his child was forced to make other plans to fill in that time. Tell him that he has lost his visitation for that week by not showing up like that (he has no right to leave you hanging like that as you might have had plans of your own AND this is also a control issue on his part...he is showing you that he can do what he pleases with impunity...don't let him get away with it!) but that he is welcome to schedule for the following weekend.
As for contempt of court, tell the judge that you made the child available for visitation but his father did not pick him up when he was supposed to. He didn't even call his child to let him know but he shows up eleven hours late (document everything). Since you made your child available for visitation at the scheduled time and the father refused to execute such visitation at the appropriate time, there is no contempt. And your lawyer might point out gracefully to the judge that it isn't reasonable for the child's father to expect you to wait at home for the entire time of the scheduled visitation for the father to execute such visitation. I doubt the judge would think that is a reasonable expectation.
Addendum: yes, your son's father has the right to visitation but he has no right to show up 11 hours late and expect you to sit there waiting for him to pick up his child. And it is grossly unfair to the child to expect him to sit at the door for eleven plus hours. Children are live human beings, not property. If the father is more than three hours late without good excuse or calling, I think you will find that the judge will not expect you to sit there any longer but you are free to make other plans. And as Bob is entitled to 57 hours of visitation a week (2 days, 9 hours according to the schedule you gave), it is extremely unreasonable for anyone to expect you to stay at home that entire time until Bob decides to pick up his child.
