Why Go To Law School And Not Be A Lawyer?
Why Would Someone Go To Law School, Get The Law Degree, And Then Not Take The Bar Exam? Or Take The Bar Exam, Pass, And Then Don'T Practice?
There are a lot of other jobs than being a lawyer that one can do with a law degree.
A lot of people earn law degrees and then join law schools (or other university colleges, such as business schools) as faculty members (instructors, lecturers, professors, etc.).
A law degree is great preparation for a business/corporate career.
A law degree is great if you want to be an author or a writer and write about law-related issues.
A law degree is great to be a legal journalist (i.e., a law reporter on TV/radio, or a writer for a newspaper/magazine column).
Just some thoughts.
Becoming A Lawyer Advice?
I Am A Community College Student Looking To Transfer And Going To Major In Political Science. I Am Thinking About Becoming A Lawyer And Was Wondering What Law School Is Like? What Tests, Homework, Reading, Etc.. Is Like? Please Let Me Know
Forget law school. Law school is an absolute scam. The reality is the economy, which has dramatically changed. Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years....
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law. Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<<
Even if you do finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce in TODAY's job market!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves. Law schools are cash cows.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites:
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare<<<, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
(This is based on my current knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Please be careful and do your research.<<< You DID ask the question here on Y/A. I am just trying to help you.)
What Is Your Opinion On The Guy That Confessed That He Killed A Guy In Drunk Driving Accident?
Guy Has Balls.
I Know That What He Did Was Irresponsible And Stupid, But Come On The Guy Has Stood Up And Taken Responsability. Now I Would Like To Read Your Opinion. Leave Anything I Don'T Care.
And If You Have Not Seen The Video Yet, Look Up &Quot;Drunk Driving Confession&Quot; On Youtube To See What I Am Talking About.
The teenager "Manned up". He did something most men would cringe at; he admitted (against his lawyers advice even) to killing another man by drunk driving. There are many who will take heed of this story, perhaps saving lives in the process.
What he did was wrong; he admits it. He made a serious mistake and is taking responsibility for it.
He is willing to accept the consequences, he even goes a step further with his video. I'm sorry for what happened, I'm sorry that he has to do this, but drinking and driving are a very dangerous mix and too, too many people just don't get that.
This kid gets it now, a little too late but at least he's trying to open up a few eyes in his admission.
Do You Need A Real Estate Lawyer To Purchase A Home?
I Was Told That Hiring A Real Estate Lawyer Is Not Absolutely Necessary, Since There Is A Lawyer Who Functions On Behalf Of The Lender To Prepare The Proper Paperwork. Does Anyone Have Any Recent Experience With This? It Would Be Almost An Additional $1,000.
If your question is do you need to hire an attorney to represent you in a real estate purchase transaction then the answer is no. If you feel as if you would want to hire one for some reason then that decision is yours to make.
Most states have in place a lot of agencies that would protect you and make sure things are handled properly according to the state laws of the state in which you reside.
In California we have escrows and title to handle most of the paper work in closing real estate transactions. These two companies working together make sure the property is properly transferred, they ensure that all the funds are given and paid to the proper individuals. They also make sure a clean title is passed on to you as the buyer.
In a few states, such as Georgia there are attorneys that do the closings as oppose to escrow officers. These attorneys work closely with the title company making sure that all the proper paper work is completed prior to the closing of any real estate transaction. These attorneys do not represent the buyers or sellers. They are there simply to ensure that the transaction close according to the state laws governing real estate sales.
In the early stages of purchasing property you would be dealing with a mortgage banker/broker or bank to obtain proper financing. Then you would have a real estate agent to assist in obtaining your house you are seeking to purchase.
Each of the companies mentioned above would have staff attorneys on their staff to make sure all state and federal laws are observed.
I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.
Can Anyone Recommend A Good Criminal Defense Attorney?
I Have A Friend That Got Caught Up In A Bad Situation. He Committed Two Crimes, One Crime Was For Not Paying A Taxi Cab, The Other Was Shoplifting For Food. He Had His Court Date Set, Went To Court But Was Told He Could Only Get The Cab Crime Taken Care Of And That His Other Court Date Was Set For The Same Day In A Different County. When He Came Back To Double Check This Information The Court System On The Internet Said He Was Actually At The Right Court In The First Place. So Something Is Screwy Here. He Doesn'T Have Any Money Since He Is Homeless And Can'T Get A Job Since He Now Has A Warrant Due To This Mis-Hap. I Am Wondering If Anyone Knows Of Any Good Attorneys Out There? I Would Like To Help My Friend. Thank You.
If he has no money then he has the right to a public defense attorney; he has the right to get a government paid lawyer.
But I think he should try to get the money to pay for the cab and the food and maybe they'll be willing to drop the charged.
I Need Help With Legal Advice, Im Getting Charged With A Felony ( Theft ).?
The Incident: Me And Two Friends Got Onto A Securitys Officers Golf Cart And Drove It. The Security Officer Started Chasing Us, And We All Baled Out With The Cart Running. The Cart Then Ran Into A Car. The Car Got A Minor Scratch On It, And The Cart The Same.
Im 18, And They Charged Me At First With Theft And Criminal Mischief. Then Later They Told Me Theyre Charging Me With Me A Felony ( Theft ). They Said That If Myself And My Two Friends Payed For The Car Damage ( Not Estimated How Much Yet ) And The Cart Damage ( 8K ), They Would Drop The Charges. I Dont Understand Why There Charging With Me The Whole Price Of The Cart, And Just Not The Damages. My Parents Are Talking To An Attorney Within The Next Day To Two Or Three Days.
The Big Question Is, Why Do I Have A Felony ( Why Did The Misdemeanors Change Into A Felony )
"they charged me at first with Theft and Criminal Mischief"
Who is "they" I wish the people who wrote these questions took a minute to think before they posted. The people who read these things are total strangers. You might have been charged by cops - but prosecutors often have their own ideas about what to charge.
"The big question is, why do i have a felony"
And the answer can be found reading your state's criminal code - a copy of which can be found in any public library in your state. If you know the specific criminal code section you can read it there. In NYS, theft of a motor vehicle worth at least $100 is a felony.
"I dont understand why there charging with me the whole price of the car"
I don't understand who they (or "there") is - is it the police? Maybe the police don't know how badly the cart was damaged. Ask for an estimate of the damage.
