Question by Tenant In Review: What sacrifice is required to become a lawyer by part time school?
I am considering trying to become a lawyer.
I have a full time job that due to economic conditions I obviously dont want to lose.
I am looking at possibly going to law school on a part time basis during the evenings.
Am I barking up the wrong tree? Just from a work hours on top of study hours perspective, is this a crazy under taking?
Any advice is appreciated.

It is crazy. If you have no family and don’t care about a social life go for it. What is it like 4 yrs doing nights? There is a glut of lawyers too. United States needs more lawyers like we need swine flu, hopefully when you get out you can find a law job that pays $ 35,000-$ 50,000, is it worth it, no not really but hey who cares it is just your life and serious debt?

Here are some examples of what awaits you for your 4 yr struggle + the Bar Exam:

From a recent Boston Craigslist job post by an attorney:

Recently admitted attorney seeking work assisting criminal defense attorneys in any capacity. I have worked with indigent defendants in clinical settings and interned for several excellent defense attorneys and a federal judge, but am finding few opportunities for entry level work in the field. I am proficient (though not fluent) in Spanish, have strong research and writing skills, am passionate about indigent defense, and am an extremely quick learner. I will research, draft motions, conduct interviews, even answer phones, for a low fee of $ 10 an hour in exchange for the opportunity to observe, and perhaps participate in, actual litigation. References and writing samples available.

Or, From a recent Yahoo Post:

Small general practice law firm located near Columbus, OH. Started at $ 40K 1.5 years ago after first receiving law license. After 3 months pay was raised to $ 43K. Had annual review and was told although I had a stellar performance and deserved a raise the office couldn’t afford to give me 1. When started was told I should be paid more than they were paying me but they couldn’t afford to pay me more. Have several years of paralegal experience. Graduated in top 20% of class. Did internships and clinics during law school. Didn’t need much training when started. Feel like starting pay was too low and current pay should be much higher. Can’t find much info. on small firm salaries though.

Sound tempting? COME LIVE THE DREAM. Note: these two examples will never show up in a glossy law school brochure. THIS IS REALITY.

In general, on the Internet, you have only an implied license to download a single copy of legally posted materials for your own personal use.

You do NOT have a license to make additional copies, let alone publish (upload) copies of works made by other people, unless (a) the works are of the US government, (b) the works are so old that their copyright has expired, (c) you have a license from the copyright owner, or (d) you can claim one or more “exemptions” from the copyright laws (such as reporting the news and making reference to a small excerpt of a literary work).

Nearly everything on the Internet published since 1989 was automatically copyrighted the moment it was created. Things prior to that would only be copyrighted if the authors followed the necessary formalities (registration, notice, renewals), depending upon the type of work and when it was first published in the USA.

Things copyrighted after, say, 1963 have a duration of 70 years after the death of the author.

Question by me: Where can I download FREE real estate forms?
We are selling our house in Ohio by ourselves and I need some FREE legal forms that I can print out. There are sights out there that I’ve found, but they all require a payment. Thanks

Make sure you know what you are getting into. Selling a house is a tricky situation. There are federal regulations regarding what is, and is NOT allowed to occur.

Good luck.

In my opinion, lawyers are like anyone — some great ones, some not-so-great ones, etc.

I don’t associate one type of practice as more crooked than any other.

Question by Natiebob: Will placing CDs under my children’s SSNs shelter my in-laws from the tax on the interest?
My in-laws want to use my children’s SSNs for CDs to avoid paying tax on the interest. I want to know if ther could be tax reprocussions for me and my wife, or my kids. I don’t want to know about legal ramifications regarding my in-laws tax avoidance, only tax ramifications please.

Best answer:

Answer by Go with the flow
Tax wise it will not do anything to you.
Must be nice to have in-laws that rich. It takes a lot of money (a lot) for all this work to be advantageous in any way.

Careful if they are trying to commit any kind of IRS fraud.
If you know about their “dealings” you could also be considered guilty.
