Is A Career As A Psychiatrist Or A Criminal Lawyer More Beneficial?
I Know Both Take A Lot Of Schooling But It Seems Like Its Worth It In The Long Run, I Would Love To Be A Criminal Lawyer And Defend People But I'M Not Sure How Secure The Job Is And A Psychiatrist Is A Lot Of School But I Would Really Love To Help People And It Seems Like A Job That Will Always Be Needed. What Do You Reccomend? Any Answers Or Info Will Be Helpful Please!
Neither one. You'd be wasting your time and your money.
A psychiatrist is a medical doctor with a specialty in psychiatry. That would take you about 10 years in college and medical school and you would run up a debt of about $250,000.00. And psychiatrists are very few and far between. You would have to create your own business as they are generally not employed by clinics or hospitals. So, you would be on your own.
As far as being a lawyer, perhaps you are not up to date about the legal field. The legal field is a total glut and has been for several years. That means lawyers are a dime a dozen. Law schools are turning out new lawyers by the thousands every year and there are no jobs for them,.
First, you go to law school and graduate. All law students in all law schools study the same thing. They all learn the basics of all the law, so trying to specialize in something like criminal defense would be almost impossible. Then you try to get a job with a law firm as education without several years of practical experience is worthless. Here's a clue: LAW FIRMS ARE NOT HIRING! It is virtually impossible for new law graduates to get a job. About the only thing they can get is doing contract research at minimum wage.
There are many law graduates now suing their law schools because of the promises of jobs and now they find it impossible to get one.
A recent news story on TV showed a top graduate of a New York Law School was suing them because he could not get hired by anybody in the city of New York. He was working as a waiter in a pizza shop making minimum wage. His debt from law school was $230,000.00. He will be 65 by the time he gets that paid off. If that's what you want to do, ENJOY!
Do Canadian Lawyers Sue A Lot For Medical Malpractice?
Serious Question Given That It Is A Single-Payer Country. Is Medical Malpractice Suits In Canada, Where The Government Is The Defendant, As Rampant As Medical Malpractice Suits Are Here In The States?
After Obesity And Smoking, The Biggest Medical Expense In The Us Is Due To Tort Law.
There are several for this...
1. Loser-pays. Canada has a loser-pays legal system. If you sue someone and loose, a judge may declare the case 'without merit' and order the plaintiff to pay the defendants legal and/or the court costs. It avoids 'blackmail' lawsuits which you get in the US where the doctors/insurance settles merely to avoid the cost of a lawsuit.
2. No medical damages. Because of universal health care, you typically can't sue for any medical costs to correct the issue since they would be covered. Any medical costs you suffer as a result are automatically covered. Also, since you are covered, you don't need to sue immediately in order to get money for care.
3. Liability limits. In Canada there are absolute liability limits on non-deliberate damages for pain and suffering. This is based on inflation and sits around $330,000. Loss of work damages are not so limited, but typically costs issue maximums of around $1M -- the general reason being that if you were in a profession which could earn much more than this... you'd carry your own insurance.
4. Better regulation/certification. Canadian doctors are better monitored and because the province owns all the hospitals and there are a limited number of provinces... you typically don't get incompetent doctors moving around. Doctor rating sites, licensing agencies (college of physicians), etc. make it much easier to deal with a problem doctor.
5. Arbitration. Most provinces require malpractice claims to go through an arbitration process of some sort. The province usually wants to settle (since it will be paying the medical costs anyway) and the lawyers usually want to settle (since they are capped in awards anyway). Most judges are unlikely to award much more than the arbitrator decides anyway. Usually in these cases, fault is fairly obvious and there is little reason to draw things out in court.
Questions About Lawyers (Occupation)?
1. What Different Types Of Lawyers Are There?
2. What Is The Average Salary For A Lawyer?
I'M Really Interested In Becoming A Lawyer. I Was Thinking Either Divorce/Custody/Adoption Or Like One Of Those Lawyers Who Have To Research Criminals. But I Want To Know The Other Options.
Well there are many types of law. Corporate Law, Litigation, Criminal, Probate, Real Estate, Tax Law, Bankruptcy Law. Divorce/custody/adoption is family Law. You can make 75K and up just starting out. Of course you have to pay your student loans. You would make more doing Corporate Law and Litigation. It really depends on your practice. Just starting out you probably won't make much, but you have to keep at it. It is a wonderful occupation. Interesting work indeed. Like Doctors, someone will always be in need of a Lawyer. THE LAW FIELD IS NOT DRYING UP AS SOME PEOPLE KEEP SAYING/POSTING. (MAILICCO).
I Need A 24 Hour Lawyer Hotline Number For Commiting A Theft?
I Just Need A Number To Call To Get Legal Advice For A Crime Of Theft Being Commited
I don't think they exist. lawyers are people too and they would love to go home and spend time with their families. if it does exist it would most likely be paralegals who cannot actually give you legal advice over the phone or legal advice period. what they would most likely do is refer you to a lawyer in your area and give you their phone number to call them during normal hours. the only way lawyers would answer legal advice at night or the early morning hours would be if you were a paying client of thiers. I would look in a phone book and call a lawyer in the morning to schedule you a free consultation ADDL INFO if you are dealing with the police the best thing to do is keep quiet and don't tell them anything until you have contacted a lawyer. it states in your Miranda rights that you have the right to remail silent anything you do or say will be held against you in the court of law. so keep quiet till morning.
What Kind Of Child Labor Laws Are Present For A Web Design Job Which Pays By Salary Not Hours?
I Am 17 Years Old And Attend Both High School And College, Although My High School Is A Hybrid-Type School In Which I Do Not Need To Attend Classes If I Don'T Want To. I Was Offered A Job In Web Design Recently Which Seems To Be A Difficult Field To Categorize By Child Labor Laws. I Would Be Working From Home Mostly And The Hours Would Not Be Recorded. Is This Legal? Would I Be Able To Get A Work Permit For This? This Is A Great Opportunity For Me And I Would Hate Not Being Able To Do It. Thank You.
Best bet, Call your local bar association and ask for a referral to a labor attorney specializing in child labor law.
Most will see you once for a small fee or for free and discuss what your legal needs might be. It would certainly be a more reliable answer than something off the internet.
Legal Advice Due To Domestic Violence? Please Help =(?
I Live In Hillsborough County Florida, And I Have Been Separated From My Husband For A Month. I Had Nowhere To Go At The Time, So I Had To Stay Living With Him In The Same House - Different Bedrooms But Same Place. 2 Days After He Left Me, He Had A New Girlfriend (How New I Do Not Know) Who Happens To Be Newly 17 Years Old. While Staying There, He Always Put Her In My Face And Brought Me Down And Told Me How Much Better Than Me She Is - Which Caused Unbelivable Stress On My And My Unborn Child. I Am 7 1/2 Months Pregnant And Have A 19 Month Old Little Girl (Both Of Which Are His). I Think He Has Been On Drugs And He Has Been Acting Differently, So When He Came Home Last Night And Started Arguing With Me, He Grabbed Me By Both Arms And Slammed Me Up Against The Wall. I Recieved Multiple Scrapes To My Right Eyebrow And Swelling, As Well As A Cracked Rib. I Called The Cops And Filed Charges Against Him. After The Incident, He Got In His Car And Left, So The Cop Asked Form His Information And Told Me That He Had Felony Battery Charges Against Him And They Are Filing A Warrant For His Arrest And Are Going To Look For Him. My Question Is Now What Should I Do? I Dont Want Him Trying To Take My Daughter Away From Me Because He Is Also A Legal Guardian (And Not To Mention My Daughter Saw The Whole Incident And I Am Pregnant And You See How Much He Cared). I Am Staying With My Family Because I Dont Have Much Available To Me, I Am 19 Years Old (Married At 16) And I Was A Housewife/Stay At Home Mom So I Dont Have The Car, A Job, Money Or Anything. Is There Anything Anyone Can Suggest, Please?
Ask the police for a domestic violence hotline number. You need 1) shelter for your and your children, 2) a Temporary Restraining Order against your husband, 3) to file for welfare so that you can get some support for the children, 4) file for divorce if that is your wish under any DV provisions in FL law. Either Legal Aid or similar type organization can do this for free except for the filing fee.
