What Are The Best Areas Of Study For A Medical Malpractice Lawyer?
I Am Currently On My 3Rd Semester For My As In Criminal Justice. I Think That I Have Recently Decided To Become A Medical Malpractice Lawyer, I Have Always Wanted To Be A Lawyer, But I Just Didn'T Know What Specialty. I'M Too Far Along Now To Change My As But What Should I Get My Bs/Ba In? Does It Matter?
Please Only Answer This If You Have Honest To God Advice Or Experience, Thanks Guys!
Most do not know this but law schools prefer that you do not take pre-law as an undergraduate. They prefer that you enter the school and that they should teach you all the law that you need to know.
That being the case it would be best if you are certain that you want to emphasize medical malpractice is that you should take a number of health Chemistry and Biology classes./
Can Someone Give Me Some Info On Being A Contract Lawyer?
My Brother And My Sister Both Graduated In Criminal Justice...And My Brother Is Now In Law School. He Was Telling Me I Should Look Into Being A Contract Lawyer Because He Thinks I Would Like It? He Kind Of Told Me A Little About It. How Can I Make My Decision On That Possibly Becoming A Goal Of Mine? Because My Major Now Is Kinesiology And It Is Too Much Math And Science For Me.. :/
A contract lawyer is a lawyer that works for an employer on a project by project basis. It is a reference to employment status rather than a practice area, and being a contract lawyer in the United States for most assignments is a horrible job to have that pays a low hourly wage with no employment benefits and lousy working conditions (Skadden Arps supposedly has their dozens of contract attorneys hidden away in the basement of their office building - no joke).
I'm going to be a bit more optimistic though and assume that your brother simply got his terminology mixed up and meant a corporate lawyer which deals with a wide variety of contracts under business laws. Becoming a lawyer, in any practice area, is not something that is likely to lead to a satisfying career unless you can get into one of the top law schools in the nation and do well in that school. Of the thousands upon thousands of lawyers in the United States, many of them are either unemployed or highly dissatisfied with their careers because they are stuck working in low wage jobs with crushing student debt. Others have managed to survive as a lawyer long enough to eventually build a successful practice or become a partner in a small firm or otherwise managed to make a satisfying living trhough hard work over the course of years and years hard work but probably would have done things differently if they had known pursuing a law career would lead them to where they are (i.e. as a lawyer, life gave them lemons so they learned to make lemonade). Only a small percentage of lawyers ever achieve the status of a successful corporate lawyer in a big law firm.
The one thing about becoming a lawyer that is nice is that you can hold off on making the decision until your last year in college or even later than that because you don't need any particular major or class focus to get into top law school. It is based almost exclusively on the reputation of your college, your GPA, and your LSAT score, which should leave you with plenty of time to research the legal field to decide if it is the right career choice for you. In fact with a bachelors degree with a high GPA from a good college, it may be possible for you to get a job as a corporate paralegal for a few years to see what corporate lawyers do and decide if that is something you want to do before you spend over $100,000 in law school tuition (this is what I did).

California Legal Knife Law?
I Need To Know If It Is Legal To Carry A Hunting Knife In The Trunk Of A Car In California, Thanks In Advance. I Require A Source.
Having a hunting knife concealed in the trunk of a car is not illegal under STATE law, because the only statute which prohibits the concealed carrying of knives is Penal Code section 12020, which prohibits dirks or daggers (and all knives are dirks and daggers) from being concealed ON THE PERSON. Although "on the person" can extend to things like bags or purses being carried by the person, carrying something in a trunk could not conceivably be on the person. A colleague of mine recently had a court rule that a knife in a backpack was not on the person, because it was too hard to get to if the hiker had wanted to use it. However, since California allows local regulation of knives, having a knife concealed in trunk coiuld conceivably violate some local ordinance.
Could you carry this knife concealed on your person? That is very unclear. The law regulating knives in California is presently in disarray. The only state statute which specifically prohibits knife possession is Cal. Penal Code section 653k, which prohibits the possession (concealed or not) of switchblade knives with blades over 2 inches in length. Of course, a hunting knife is not a switchblade.
The other applicable statute is Penal Code section 12020, which prohibits the concealed carrying upon the person of dirks or daggers. In the case of People v. Rubalcava, 23 Cal.4th 322, the California Supreme Court said that just about any pointy thing can be a dirk or dagger, including steak knives and knitting needles. The decision appears to say the concealed carrying on the person of any pointy thing violates the law, which would, of course, include a hunting knife. (The law also appears to prohibit the concealed carrying of a knife even in your own home, although it is legal to carry a concealed firearm in your own home. I love California law!)
However, the Rubalcava court also says that they are relying upon an older decision, People v. Grubb, 63 Cal.2d 614, which said that it was unlawful to have an ordinary useful object only in circumstances which indicated that the possessor intended to use the object for a dangerous purpose. Even with such circumstances, the possessor could defend by showing its intended use for peaceful purposes. It is very unclear whether the Rubalcava court is applying this same standard.
So, is the concealed possession on the person of an ordinary knife (not a switchblade) illegal? Frankly, at this time I do not know for sure. Penal Code section 12020 says that a knife is not concealed if it is in a sheath openly carried and affixed to the belt, but there are local ordinances which prohibit openly carrying knives (usually of over 3" or thereabouts).
This is an area of law in California which is completely fouled up at the moment, and it is difficult to advise anybody whether, and how, they can lawfully carry a knife, but I can say I don't think it is a violation of state law to have a hunting knife in a car trunk.
Depending upon the city or county, I am less sure about whether there could be a violation. Given the multiplicity of cities and counties in California, it is impossible to say for sure whether any prohibited knives concealed within vehicles.
Sorry I cannot be more precise than that at present.
