What Is The &Quot;Felony Murder Rule&Quot;? Is It A Law?
So, I'Am Working In Academic Thing About The International Criminal Court And The Commom Law. So I Found That In The Uk There Was No Murder'S Law Until The Homiced Act 1957. But I Also Found &Quot;Felony Murder Rule&Quot;. Wikipedia Says That Felony Murder Rule Was Abolished By That Homiced Act. But I Didn'T Understand If That &Quot;Felony Murder Rule&Quot; Was A Law (By The Parlament And Stuff) Or Just A Precedent (Or Something Like That).
The felony murder rule does NOT deal with a person who "commits a murder" in the process of another crime; that would simply be "murder". "Murder" conviction requires proof of "intent to kill". Felony murder rules broaden this to include accidental deaths that occur during an intentional felony.
The felony murder rule also encompasses ANYONE ELSE who was involved in a felony including conspiracy, solicitation or attempt, that results in death. For instance, you agree to drive a car for a bank robber, not knowing he plans to murder anyone who gets in the way. Unbeknownst to you, a person dies in the bank or during the police response or your fleeing the scene. Under the "felony murder rule" you could be charged with murder, in ADDITION to the "murder" charges on the person who actually caused the death, or even if the death was an "accident" put in motion by your felony.
Different jurisdictions implement the rule slightly differently, for instance they might use "felony murder rule" as a phrase, but it may only allow prosecution for manslaughter for someone lacking the requisite intent to kill (only the intent to commit a felony), or limit the types of qualifying felonies in various ways (e.g., violent felonies involving a firearm).
I Live In Oregon...Can Legal Aid Here Help Me With A Case In Texas?
No, not unless one of those Legal Aid attorneys is also licensed to practice in Texas. And even then, they probably would not help you just because they wouldn't be able to appear in court in Texas if there are any hearings or at trial.
You'll need to find an attorney in Texas.

Would It Be A Bad Idea To Become A Civil Rights Attorney?
I Have Heard That It Would Be A Bad Idea To Become An Attorney, Because Most Attorneys Are Still Looking For Jobs. The Job Market Is Not Looking So Good For Them. Is This True Or No?
The job market for attorneys is intensively competitive right now. To be a civil rights lawyer (or any constitutional lawyer) you need to graduate from Harvard or Yale in the top 10% of your class.
Otherwise count on going into a different field of law.
