This guide offers candid and detailed descriptions of the challenges confronting the law student and provides concrete, workable suggestions on how to cope with them. The guide begins with a candid discussion of whether law school is a good choice for you. We explain why law school is probably not worthwhile to spend three expensive years while you figure out what you want to do with your life. After that, we provide guidance on choosing a law school that suits your particular goals and needs. The central part of this audiobook describes the unique nature of legal education and provides helpful strategies for getting the most out of those three years. We discuss how law school differs from most undergraduate school and how to cope with a different style of teaching and grading. Since law school is primarily a preparation for being a lawyer, we discuss career options in some depth and focus on how to get the law job that you want after you graduate. Finally, we offer in-depth advice about coping with the psychological stress of law school. Law is a demanding profession, and it can be hard to balance the competing aspects of your life. 1.

At a time when the hottest issue in US immigration law is the proposed action by President Obama to protect from deportation as many as five million illegals in the United States, the John Lennon case takes on special relevance, notwithstanding the passage of 40 years since he was placed in deportation proceedings. This is John and Yoko's incredible story, as told by the lawyer who fought in the front lines. In 1972 President Richard M. Nixon learned that John Lennon was visiting the United States. Nixon was told that Lennon's continued presence here could be catastrophic to his plan for reelection. Lennon, who had just made an appearance before an audience of 15,000 young fans at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, was rumored to be planning to join Jerry Rubin to lead a series of rock music rallies to "Dump Nixon" in anticipation of the 1972 Republican National Convention. The special significance of the 1972 convention was the fact that this would be the first national election in which the voting age was reduced from 21 to 18, adding 5 to 10 million new prospective voters. Nixon was not popular with this young group. Lennon was. Indeed, Senator Strom Thurmond had just written a Dear John letter to Nixon's attorney general, John Mitchell, suggesting that deporting Lennon quickly would be an "appropriate countermeasure". John Mitchell was the head of CREEP, the Committee to Reelect the President; his day job was as attorney general, in charge of deporting illegal aliens. Following the Watergate-style advice of his legal counsel, John Dean, Nixon decided to "use the available political machinery to screw our political enemies" and proceeded in earnest to deport Lennon and his artist wife, Yoko Ono. Lennon and Ono consulted Leon Wildes, an expert in the field of immigration law, about the reason for their visit: their efforts to locate and secure custody of Kyoko, Yoko's American eight-year-old child by a prior marriage.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In its most general sense, the practice of law involves giving legal advice to clients, drafting legal documents for clients, and representing clients in legal negotiations and court proceedings such as lawsuits, and is applied to the professional services of a lawyer or attorney at law, barrister, solicitor, or civil law notary. However, there is a substantial amount of overlap between the practice of law and various other professions where clients are represented by agents. These professions include real estate, banking, accounting, and insurance.
