What Is The Best Type Of Lawyer?
I'm 13 Doing A Project On What Career Path I Want And I Want To Become A Lawyer But I Need To Know What You Think Is The Best Type Of Lawyer. I Like Criminal Justice. But Idk Bout It And I Want To Know Benefits And Disadvantages Along With Requirements? I'm Looking Forward To Going Further With This Career Path.
If you are the kind of person who can hear about a suspected criminal and say to yourself, "I wonder what his/her side of the story is?" you'd probably be really good at being a criminal defense attorney. If you have a sincere desire to help families resolve legal issues like child custody, support, etc. you might want to consider becoming a mediator. If you love to dig and dig into a case until you can prove someone guilty, you probably belong in the state's attorney's office. If you like the inner workings of big business regulations, you might be a good fit for corporate law and if you're environmentally inclined, there's probably more than a few openings for environmental attorneys with the E.P.A.
What's required of attorneys varies state by state and a good place to start to find out what's required in your state might be your state's Bar Association.
Good luck! :)

How Can A Person Be Moral And Honorable And A Good Trial Attorney?
If You Work In The Business, You Probably Don’T Need Clarification As To Why I Would Ask This Question.
Libraryanna brought up some interesting points, every person has a right to council in criminal
cases. However, justice is not for everyone, nor is it blind. For the average person, justice is nonresistant, the person (defendant) is usually represented by a public defender who is over worked and burdened with a massive case load.
The PD is court appointed and usually has little interest in his clients welfare, he or she will
most always cut a deal and move on the the next case.
On the other side of the coin, we have a person who can afford a big time attorney who has
private investigators and all the tools needed. He or she will devote ample time and spare
no expense to get his client off.
Can you see the difference ? There is poor mans justice and rich mans justice, if you have
the money you can be assured more than not your case will be dismissed or down graded
to a lesser offense.
Is this fair ? do you think both defendants will receive the same justice ?
Remember you get what you pay for, the poor man go's to jail the rich man usually does not.
Libraryanna, is right all deserve representation, but it comes with a very high price tag it's
called the privileged.
As far as her spew regarding "don't watch Fox news and the right wing nonsense she is about
as smart as a rock. Her words are meaningless without substance just as most of her
block headed kind. USELESS BLOBS.
What Type Of Law Does A Medical Marijuana Lawyer Study?
I'M Curious To Know What Type Of Law Degree Lawyers Who Practice In Medical Marijuana Cases Usually Study For.
A law degree.

What Does A Cpa Lawyer Do?
I'M Thinking Of Becoming A Lawyer In The Future, And A Lot Of People Advised Me To Become A Cpa Lawyer. I Have No Idea What They Do, Though! Also, What Are The Other Types Of Lawyers? I'Ve Only Heard Of Criminal Lawyers & Corporate Lawyers.
Certified Public Accountant - you work with tax laws - which are constantly changing. LOTS and LOTS of paperwork. You'll need to love working with details and lots of paperwork. You'll be helping the rich find ways to bend the tax laws and NOT pay taxes.
But, overall, becoming a CPA is a good idea - there are LOTS of future job opportunities there. But forget about the part about becoming a Lawyer. Just stick with the CPA part.
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.
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! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. 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.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
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: We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead - they aren't hiring legal staff. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software/law books in order to get legal work done without the expense of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc) For example: Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
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 after paying the expensive tuition, you still need to pay for books, room and board, and miscellaneous fees.
The legal profession leaves little room for outside interests. Commitment to the law profession tends to produce an unbalanced lifestyle.
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
The competition to get into law school is intense. Applicants to most law schools greatly exceed the number that can be admitted.
Even if you 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. 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.
>>>>>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: http://informeddecisionmaking.blogspot.c...
(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. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about future job availability in the field of Law..................
**Do "informational interviews" with several attorneys from at least two or three different firms. (You can find how to do "informational interviews" from your local Public Library - ask the Librarian.) Interviewing attorneys is a time-efficient and extremely beneficial way of discovering if law is the right vocational field for you. Talk to a few Human Resource Managers who work at employers in the field of Law. Ask them what their opinion is on future job availability for the field of Law. Ask them if they have any current open positions. Ask them how many resumes they receive when they advertise ONE open position. (It is ususally approximately 300 resumes are received for each open position advertised.) If you personally know a practicing lawyer, set up a time with them to do an "informational interview" to ask them about their career. Talk to many attorneys. Better yet, spend an entire day with one of them.
**Talk to recent law graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities. <<<
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.
There are MANY issues of working in the vocational field of Law. My answer is an attempt to give you a realistic way of looking at this career, and I have told you things that most will not tell you about the profession - at first. Be careful, do your research, and have your eyes open wide.
