Question by R: Does working as a volunteer at a law firm count as service?
High, I am filling out a college form and was wondering if a volunteer internship at a law firm would count as service?
By the way, I am a high school senior.
Thank you guys. I have a lot of community service hours (like over 200) the only problem is that the application is kind of vague. I am pretty sure its work experience too but I’ll call to make sure.

No it does NOT. Community Service is performed for a registered charity. As a senior in HS you should know this.

Question by Becca: What are some ways a 14 year old girl in Alabama can make money during the summer?
Hi, all! I’m trying to help out my sister. Aside from working at a camp, is there anything else she can do? She is a really great photographer, but can not start a business yet because of legal issues. Is there anywhere else she can work? She is also artistic and creative. Thank you so much!!

There are lots of potential hurdles for minors in work, many of them law-related, parents want to be careful about that. There is lots of help from the resource in the box below on this subject, they also have help for all peeps who are searching for work, or who want to change careers.

I plan on becoming a criminal defense lawyer. Is it easier to find a job in a firm or start your own business. I hear both are pretty difficult and I know it does depend on how well you do in school. Any suggestions?

Question by Eric W: What might be a standard hourly wage for a language translator working for a law firm?
I am trying to get an idea of the hourly wage range that a language translator may earn in a large law firm in a major city. Responsibilities would include summary and detail translations of client documents, maintaining document lists and interpreting meaning of certain wording within documents. Any approximation of wage would be very helpful. Thanks!

It depends which country and which city and which languages! In London legal translators for standard European languages (English, German, French, Spanish) in a good company can expect to earn at least 25 K a year. If it’s Russian or Japanese, at least 35 K. The rates are probably similar in Paris or Frankfurt but much less in Spain or Italy or Eastern Europe.

Question by Terry N: I just bought a 04′ Honda Accord and I am having problems with the car. What should I do and what can I do?
I bought this car in April 2007. Days after buying it I noticed a vibration when I accelarated. Thought I need just an alignment. I called the dealer and the salesman that i bought the car from told me to bring it in. He apparently knew that my car had an axle problem. My car has now been in their shop 3 times. Each time, they have replaced the CV joints in the car with remanufacutured parts. The problem has started again. I want to see if they can get me another car? Is this possible? I checked with the lemon laws in PA and they can’t help me because I don’t have a manufacturers extended warranty. There are some other minor problems with the car and I’m just afraid that this car is just going to have more problems if I keep the car.
I bought it at a Ford Dealer.

Also, I checked the car fax report and the car showed no accidents and is not reported as a lemon.

Answer by bob c
Was it a qualified Honda dealer? If you bought it at a used car lot then u r screwed.
