Your Questions About How To Become A Lawyer In Australia

Helen asks…

How do I become a lawyer in Australia?

I’m an Australian citizen, born and bred, and I was wondering how I could become a lawyer. Currently I am in my first year of university in a Bachelor of Arts course. I plan on majoring in literature. Am I still able to become a lawyer? How would I be able to do this?

admin answers:

Your best bet is to ask you uni’s advisor / councillor about what subjects you need to take to find out what type of lawyer you would like to be

A gang of robbers broke into a lawyer’s club by mistake. The old legal lions gave them a fight for their life and their money. The gang was very happy to escape.

“It ain’t so bad,” one crook noted. “We got $25 between us.”

The boss screamed: “I warned you to stay clear of lawyers — we had $100 when we broke in!”

Thomas asks…

How can I become a lawyer in Australia?

I am studying bachelor of International Business, my program allowed me to combine a major in “Commercial Law”. If I finish this major, can I work as a lawyer after I graduate? Or any job that can get me into that field? Or do I need law school?(Sorry I don’t know much about law school)

Thank you very much!
What’s wrong with you two guys, what did I do?

admin answers:

G’day,

I have a feeling that a double major in international business & commercial law will enable you to work as a lawyer, since to become a lawyer you will need to pass the bar exams, so your course will not cover those. The business course will definitely gives you some information on how to do business within the Australian laws, therefore making you quite crucial for international businesses who wants to do business with Austrlaian companies, or setting their business in Australia.

If you want to work as a lawyer, then you may have to change your course completely. I strongly suggest that you speak with your course counselor, law lecturers and perhaps even job counselor before making a rash decision. Also you need to know if you can transfer the units that you have done so you do not have to start all over again from 1st year.

Hope this helps. Good luck on your study :)

Nancy asks…

how many years do you have to study at university in Queensland, Australia, to become a lawyer or doctor?

i am in year 7 in nsw but at the end of the year i am moving to queensland. i am aspiring to either be a doctor or a lawyer, hence the question. any person that knows the answer please submit it. thankyou.

admin answers:

I don’t know about law school but here is how it is for medical: It depends on when you are entering or how much college you have already completed. If you will be entering right out of high school then it is 6 years. High school students in Australia can make the choice to become a doctor, then they can enter directly into college for it, the first couple of years they have their general education classes and the last years are the medical portion. It is all combined into one degree. But if you have already finished college, or will finish soon, you can enter into a medical program and it will take 4 years, so you would have a regular 4 year undergrad degree then 4 years of medical school.

Your Questions About Law Schools In California Wiki

Daniel asks…

How do leftists feel that Bush appointed a g*y judge?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaughn_R._Walker
Walker was born in Watseka, Illinois in 1944, and graduated from the University of Michigan in 1966 and Stanford Law School in 1970.[1] After serving as a law clerk for United States District Court for the Central District of California judge Robert J. Kelleher from 1971 to 1972, he practiced in San Francisco at Pillsbury, Madison & Sutro from 1972 until his September 7, 1989, nomination by President George H. W. Bush to a seat on the federal district court vacated by Spencer M. Williams.[1] Walker was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on November 21, 1989, on unanimous consent and received commission on November 27, 1989. Walker is one of two federal judges publicly known to be gay.

Are liberals shocked that President Bush, Sr. appointed a gay judge?
BTW, he happens to be the one who just struck down Prop 8 and allowed gay marriages.

admin answers:

Reagan, also a Republican, appointed the first woman, Sandra Day O’Connor, to the Supreme Court.
So, Bush #41 appointed a gay judge? Seems like the Republicans are making all the “firsts” here, not the Dems. And you have demonized us. Ha. We’re more evolved than YOU.

Robert asks…

What should the school’s response been to 15 year old Lawrence King who dressed effeminately to school?

This boy, Lawrence King, was murdered by Brandon McInerney. King was shot twice in the head, brutally mudered in a classroom in front of other students. According to Newsweek Brandon McInerney killed him because King was openly gay, and allegedly asked him to be his Valentine.

King’s family is angry with the school for “allowing” the boy to wear effeminate clothing, high heels, makeup etc. to school, which would have been discriminatory, according to the school.

Do you think the school was right or wrong?

In August 2008, King’s family filed a claim against E.O. Green School at Ventura County Superior Court, alleging that the school’s allowing King to wear makeup and feminine clothing was a factor leading to his death.[17] According to the California Attorney General’s Office, however, the school could not legally have stopped King from wearing girls’ clothes because state law prevents gender discrimination.[2]

According to a Newsweek article published on July 19, 2008, some teachers at E.O. Green also allege that assistant principal Joy Epstein was “encouraging King’s flamboyance to help further an ‘agenda’”.[2]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E.O._Green_School_shooting

admin answers:

His parents are wrong on two counts. The first is that the school could do nothing. The second is that there legal action suggests thay their son’s killer was something other than a bigot, even suggesting that they see why there son was killed, almost legitimizing it. But the boy who pulled the trigger is no less a bigot than those who voted for prop 8.

Mandy asks…

Would you vote for the Rhino Party?

I’m just curious. I think it would be awesome to bring it back.

For those who don’t know: The Rhinoceros Party was a registered political party in Canada from the 1960s to the 1990s. Operating within the Canadian tradition of political satire, the Rhinoceros Party’s basic credo, their so-called primal promise, was “a promise to keep none of our promises.” They then promised outlandishly impossible schemes designed to amuse and entertain the voting public. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhino_party)

Here are some of their platform promises:

* Repealing the law of gravity
* Paving Manitoba to create the world’s largest parking lot
* Providing higher education by building taller schools
* Instituting English, French and illiteracy as Canada’s three official languages
* Tearing down the Rocky Mountains so that Albertans could see the Pacific sunset
* Making Montreal the Venice of North America by damming the St. Lawrence River
* Abolishing the environment because it’s too hard to keep clean and it takes up so much space
* Annexing the United States, which would take its place as the third territory, after the Yukon and the Northwest Territories (Nunavut did not yet exist) in Canada’s backyard, in order to eliminate foreign control of Canada’s natural resources
* Ending crime by abolishing all laws
* Paving the Bay of Fundy to create more parking in the Maritimes
* Turning Montreal’s Saint Catherine Street into the world’s longest bowling alley
* Adopting the British system of driving on the left; this was to be gradually phased in over five years with large trucks and tractors first, then buses, eventually including small cars and bicycles last
* Selling the Canadian Senate at an antique auction in California
* Putting the national debt on Visa
* Declaring war on Belgium because a Belgian cartoon character, Tintin, killed a rhinoceros in one of the cartoons
* Offering to call off the proposed Belgium-Canada war if Belgium delivered a case of mussels and a case of Belgian beer to Rhinoceros “Hindquarters” in Montréal (the Belgian Embassy in Ottawa did, in fact, do this)
* Painting Canada’s coastal sea limits in watercolour so that Canadian fish would know where they were at all times
* Banning guns and butter, since both kill
* Banning lousy Canadian winters
* Renaming the country Nantucket
* Building a bridge spanning the country, from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland.
* Making the Trans-Canada Highway one way only.
* Changing Canada’s currency to bubble gum, so it could be inflated or deflated at will.
* Donate a free rhinoceros to every aspiring artist in Canada

I listed them all just for a good laugh. I know that it was Canadian. But would you vote for a party similar to them? I ask this because of the upcoming elections. Or are you planning on voting for one of the main parties?

Thomas asks…

Domestic Partnership is fair…right?

California Domestic Partnership

As of 2007, California affords domestic partnerships all of the same rights and responsibilities as marriages under state law (Cal. Fam. Code §297.5). Among these:

* Making health care decisions for each other in certain circumstances
* Hospital and jail visitation rights that were previously reserved for family members related by blood, adoption or marriage to the sick, injured or incarcerated person.
* Access to family health insurance plans (Cal. Ins. Code §10121.7)
* Spousal insurance policies (auto, life, homeowners etc..), this applies to all forms of insurance through the California Insurance Equality Act (Cal. Ins. Code §381.5)
* Sick care and similar family leave
* Stepparent adoption procedures
* Presumption that both members of the partnership are the parents of a child born into the partnership
* Suing for wrongful death of a domestic partner
* Rights involving wills, intestate succession, conservator-ships and trusts
* The same property tax provisions otherwise available only to married couples (Cal. R&T Code §62p)
* Access to some survivor pension benefits
* Supervision of the Superior Court of California over dissolution and nullity proceedings
* The obligation to file state tax returns as a married couple (260k) commencing with the 2007 tax year (Cal R&T Code §18521d)
* The right for either partner to take the other partner’s surname after registration
* Community property rights and responsibilities previously only available to married spouses
* The right to request partner support (alimony) upon dissolution of the partnership (divorce)
* The same parental rights and responsibilities granted to and imposed upon spouses in a marriage

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domestic_partnership_in_California

In my opinion:
Looks to me like domestic partnership is pretty much the same. Domestic partnership is a term used to describe same sex marriage in my eyes. Just like bigamy is the unlawful act of having two or more wives or husbands at the same time, usually with the second not knowing about the first. Polygamy is the practice of having multiple wives based on religious beliefs, with all wives aware of, and agreeable to, the husband having several wives. Civil unions, common law marriages, etc. are among these various terms used to describe different types of marriages.

In essence the comparison used with the Brown vs. Board of education “separate but equal” plight that gays try to use to compare their argument is not a fair comparison. Were gays being kept from attending the school of their chose just because they are gay? Were gays demanded to sit at the back of the bus or give up their seat because they are gay? Were gays hung on trees, blown up in churches, unable to vote just because they are gay? Were gays ever unable to drink from the “whites only” water fountain just because they are gay? Were gays forced to work as slaves because they are gay? The list goes on…THERE IS NO COMPARISON! Boundaries have to be created in order to establish some form of limit that keeps chaos from ensuing. The vote has been cast for a second time to establish what the majority wants (not just one race, but all walks of life were included in this vote). America doesn’t make it legal for genders of the opposite sex to commit bigamy, incest, statutory rape, etc. All these are acts that the members of the opposite sex can “want” to do, but can be arrested for doing. Are gays being arrest for their lifestyle? Looks like they have many rights granted to their situation already to suit much of what they want. Demanding the term marriage to include same sex marriage is forcing society to give a mile when many inches of fairness have already been granted.

admin answers:

It’s not marriage.
It’s not the same.
It’s not equality.
No, it is not fair.

Laura asks…

What is the difference between a DEPARTMENT of GOVERMENT and an AGENCY of the government.?

I recall back in grade school the difference between the two concepts were very clear…

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Department and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agency .

See also http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070415182438AAhAqyJ

If I may adapt this very good answer… think of a ‘Department’ as an office of government RUN by the government – on it’s own payroll, that is, and an ‘Agency’ as an independent company contracted and funded by the government, but with a Sep-a-rate accounting “department”, if you will, and a payroll somewhat more independent of government regulation.

A search of the California State Constitution and the California Government Code revealed no clear definition or comparison of the terminology. It seems that the definitions have blurred or even been DELETED by “Operation of Law!”

admin answers:

The joint-powers run State ‘Job Service’ office which morphed out of the California State Employment Development Department ["EDD" ...one of the Agencies and/or Departments comprising the joint-powers committee and/or operation] when a California State referendum [The "Work Investment Act"] caused the dominion of the State’s “EDD” offices to be re-classified under the control of the Health and Human Services Agency, which used to be a separate Department of State government that ran the State’s welfare programs – as opposed to “Unemployment INSURANCE”, which is a jointly employee/employer sponsored INSURANCE program answering to the State’s DEPARTMENT of Insurance and the Governor’s Office.

The functions of the two government functions seem to have blurred as the welfare-oriented employees continue their obsession with denial in the name of conservation as the insurance-oriented employees address the opportunistic goals of the ‘employment’ function and its genuine needs as such.

In order to for someone who does not earn enough to maintain their own computer equipment or has experienced equipment malfunctions of their OWN at ‘home’ has to put up with when looking for income-producing work through the State’s Job Service Office, a little background is in order.

Gone are the days when you could run down to the Unemployment office scan the bulletin board, pick out the right parameters (location, hours, income level, type of work, qualifications – not necessarily in that order), take the printout up to the window, and expect to be on your way in a few minutes to a few hours. What used to take a few hours can sometimes take WEEKS anymore!

Your Questions About Accredited Online Law School Programs

Joseph asks…

Has anyone graduated from Westwood college’s criminal justice program and is now working in law enforcement?

Not the online program. I am talking about attending their 3 year in-class program for a bachelors degree in criminal justice.
There have been a lot of negative comments about the school, but when I called my local police and sheriff’s departments, they said Westwood was on the list of accredited schools.

admin answers:

I used to work for WW but i quit because of the ethics. I am not sure about graduating students. I am sure there has been some. Now the one thing i will let you know is that they are a nationally accredited school, which is fine if you stay and graduate. I know the CJ program is very hands on. However if you decide that you would like to transfer out, or try and transfer credits in you are not going to get anywhere. My suggestion for CJ is to go to your local college. There is no sense for you to spend $80, 000 on a CJ degree. If you choose to further your education into a masters program you may not get in to a masters program with the 80k bachelor degree you have obtained. You never know where the future can bring you.

Donald asks…

Degree/Grad school question?

With the abundance if online degree programs from accredited schools now abundantly available, are grad schools (i.e., med, law, business schools) still looking down their noses at an online degree and laughingly and outright dismissing them, or will it hold enough weight at admissions to get an interview (provided, of course, that the grades are on a competitive scale with other applicants)?

admin answers:

Depends on the online school and whether it is regionally and nationally accredited or not. The school I am going to is accredited by the same organization that accredits Columbia, Princeton, NYU etc… So…

Donna asks…

Should I pursue my second bachelors in health care administration or get my MHA?

I graduated in December 2010 with my Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice with a business minor. My plan was to go into corporate law, but during my last two semesters of my undergrad, I started thinking about whether or not law school was really for me. After thinking for some time, I decided to pursue my Masters in Healthcare Administration. I have applied to the University of Phoenix but I am also open to other programs in Savannah, GA or other accredited online programs. My other dilemma is whether it would be beneficial for me to get a second bachelors in health care administration and then go into the masters program or just pursue my masters. I am not sure if there is a monetary difference in having your bachelors in health care administration or the MHA.

Another bit of information, I currently work at one of the colleges in Savannah, I am a full time staff member, and beginning in the summer, the state/university would pay for my classes. So there lies the question of would it be smarter to have my tuition paid for or just use student loans? I am also torn between attending the University of Phoenix or going to a traditional 4 year school.

I know what I want to do in life, I just don’t know the proper direction I should take. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

-Confused yet driven…

admin answers:

Well, you have a few things going on here. First, I would choose the MHA Degree rather than a second bachelor’s degree in healthcare administration. Most MHA graduates do not have an undergraduate background in one specific area or another. So in my opinion, the undergraduate curriculum does not matter.

Second, since the school will be paying for your degree, I understand why you are looking at an online program. Online programs are great, but make sure you do your research. With an MHA, the school does matter. University of Phoenix would not be bad if you already had been working in healthcare, however if not then you need to look at the best online schools. Here is a list of great online MHA programs.

Penn State: http://mhaguide.com/mha-pennsylvania/penn-state-university-mha/
Ohio University: http://mhaguide.com/mha-ohio/ohio-university-mha/
University of Cincinnati: http://mhaguide.com/mha-ohio/university-of-cincinnati-mha/
George Washington MBA in Healthcare: http://mhaguide.com/mha-virginia/george-washington-university-mha-mba/

However, since you are in Savannah, you might have some nearby options for residential programs.

Armstrong Atlantic: http://mhaguide.com/mha-georgia/armstrong-atlantic-state-mha/
Georgia Southern: http://mhaguide.com/mha-georgia/georgia-southern-mha/
Medical Univ. SC: http://mhaguide.com/mha-south-carolina/medical-university-sc-mha/
A bit farther but evening and weekend classes might be an option.

I will say this, online and residential programs are very different. In the residential format, you will meet many other people who can connect you in the industry whether they are students, professors, or guest speakers. However, online programs are very flexible and arguably there are better (ranking wise) online programs that are available rather than the programs in your area. I hope this helps as I had to go through almost the exact same situation two years ago!

Laura asks…

How to tell if a college bachelor’s program is transfer accredited?

I’m going to enroll in Sacramento State’s (In CA) Online college program for working adults. I’ve asked my advisor from that school if this online program (which is an extension of the CSU itself) is fully accredited, because after my bachelor’s, I want to go to law school, which requires a bachelor’s degree for entry. She said it is, and that its accreditation comes from the WASC. The program is called Sacramento State’s College of Continuing Education. Can ANYONE confirm that if I go through this program, it’s bachelor’s degree IS acceptable for entry into law school?
I ask because I’d like a second opinion.

admin answers:

The best confirmation would come directly form WASC, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Email them.

Nancy asks…

Stressing out about my chances at getting into a good school. I feel so… average.?

So I’m stressing because I am feeling pretty average when it comes to the applicant pool for top tier schools.
I have a 4.0 unweighted GPA, a 4.76 weighted GPA, 33 on the ACT, 770 on the math level 2 and 730 on the bio SAT.
I took 5 AP classes last year (junior year) and I am taking another 6 this year (senior year). I have also taken 4 classes at my local community college (differential equations, multi-variable calc, linear algebra, and abnormal psychology).
I go to an accredited online high school and I also take some classes at stanford’s educational program for gifted youth.
As for extracurriculars I interned in a law firm last year, went to india and cambodia for volunteer work this past summer, volunteered in the hosp and a suicide hotline, I have coached girls soccer, and I played soccer for 2yrs of high school. I am also writing a research paper for college board’s YES competition.
I’m african american.
I applied to MIT early action but I was deferred :(
I knew it would be tough but I guess the deferral put a semi-major blow to my ego/self esteem and I am not feeling too confident about getting into other good colleges. I feel like everyone in the applicant pool has 4.0 GPAs and 36 on the ACT. I know it is hard.. but I’m nervous.. any helpful words?
The only stand-out-ish thing about me is that I spent the end of the my freshman year and my entire sophomore year in the hospital and I was in DSS (the system.. foster care). I have worked really hard to catch up and graduate on time (this is why I go to an online high school) but I feel like I haven’t done enough.
I know that I’m not average when it comes to the nation wide number of students applying to college but I feel pretty average when it comes to applying to top tier schools.
science/engineering is where my heart has always been
more ‘social’ work like volunteering has been an affect of my time in DSS and the hospital.. I’m just trying to let people, who are in a similar position as I was, know that they are not alone and can make it through.
Thank you everyone. I guess I just needed some help feeling a bit better about myself.

admin answers:

The top tier schools get far more qualified applicants than they can accept and many of the applicants will have stats that are equal or exceed yours.

That does not mean that you will not get accepted. MIT deferral may have been a blow but it was not a denial. Early Action is not the same as Early Decision. Early Action is MUCH, MUCH more competitive then the regular process. You are still in the running and if you were not strong, you would have been denied.

You are a strong candidate and are likely to be accepted at more than one of your top choices.

Hang in there, your hard work did not go to waste.

Good Luck!

Your Questions About Law School Study Aids

Lizzie asks…

Where is a good place to find law school study aids for cheap?

admin answers:

You could look online at places like amazon and buy used ones. You could also just check them out from the library. You couldn’t write in them but you could photocopy the test sections to take them.

Robert asks…

What is the best law school study aid?

What is the best law school study aid for having scenarios? I am looking at guides for contracts and civ pro. I already have examples and explanations. Contracts exam is finding issues and discussing them.
Thanks!

admin answers:

Ask 2 & 3Ls at your school. As you’re probably aware, there are 5-10 different study aids out there for each subject and some are better than others for each subject. People from your school will know best which ones work for the professor and teaching theory of the school. Keep in mind that if you want to (and are allowed to) use them for the exam you may want something different than if you just want to supplement your class reading & outlines.

Generally I’ve found the Amazon reviews to be pretty spot-on. Your school probably has copies of all the major ones in the library or student center, so it might be worth looking at them first before you buy one. Also consider borrowing some from your 2 & 3L friends so you don’t have to spend the money – they’re not going to need them until the bar anyway.

Sandra asks…

Law school Study aid for Uniform Commercial Code?

I’m trying to find an outline or review book for my U.C.C class. So far I’ve only used the Emanuel series, but they don’t seem to offer one. Unless Secured Transactions is supposed to be the same subject.

any help and recommendations would be appreciated.

admin answers:

For pity’s sake, just use the Code and notes, plus your class notes and your own outline! UCC is NOT that difficult! Save your money.

John asks…

Law School. How early should I get study aids? Do I know what?

aids to get as soon I get the assigned case book or, do I only know what study aids are relevant once the course is under way and I get a sense of where the professor is going.

In general, is there a way to ascertain definitively what study aid to purchase and when should that purchase be made?

admin answers:

The E&E series are very good, along with the Green Hornbook series. You might want to do some looking though, some of the study aids are keyed for specific textbooks (so I hear). Those are probably better than the general study aids (But beware!).

The general consensus, however, is that the E&E (Examples and Explanations) are the best.

Donna asks…

Obtain citizenship/Green Card after graduating law school?

I want to study law in the U.S, but to me it seems as obtaining permanent residency is extremely hard.

But I’ve heard that when one lives in the U.S for more than 5 years in a stretch, they are eligble to apply for citizenship. Would this be possible if staying seven years on a student visa?

And considering law school will be nearly 10 times more expensive in the U.S than it would be for me at home, are there a lot of financial aid programs for foreign students?

admin answers:

A requirement for a student visa is the financial capability of paying tuition, room and board, etc.

A student visa is a temporary visa, and does not convey permanent immigrant status. However, many upon completing their degrees, are sponsored by a prospective employer.

The five-year requirement for naturalization applies to legal permanent residents only. It is shortened to 3 years when married to a US citizen.

Your best option might be to attend law school in your home nation, then seek employment with a US law firm who could sponsor you.

Law School Admissions Overview

In considering the law school admissions process you have to bear in mind the old saying, “timing is everything”. You should not waste valuable time. Early planning will, at the very least, place you at a distinct advantage over your more procrastinating competitors. Many law school admissions’ committees favor those candidates who timely file their applications. Read More Here…

Online Law School: A Real Option?

Online Law School

online law schoolThere is a wide variety of online law school degree programs available today. This is due to the rapid growth and revolutionary advances in the Internet. Notwithstanding, legal education is as slow to change as the law itself in an inherently a conservative system in which decisions determined by examining past precedent. Because of this deference to the past, online law schools are still being unfairly criticized and are not yet fully accepted or integrated into traditional ranking systems. While the quality of an online law school education is certainly open to one’s opinion, it is my opinion that graduates of many non traditional law schools and criminal justice programs undergo the same grueling curriculum as their counterparts in brick and mortar law schools.

Correspondence Law School

Correspondence Law School Degrees

correspondence law schoolIt may seem like something new, but the correspondence law school model has been around for nearly 200 years. Earning a law degree from a correspondence law school basically means acquiring legal education through distance learning. Before the days of the Internet and online law degree programs, lessons were mailed back and forth from student to professor (and in some cases still are). However, because most lessons are now completed by email, online lectures, videos, audios and chat rooms, etc., correspondence law schools and Internet law schools are somewhat synonymous. More and more people are choosing to this kind of law degree because of the convenience that comes with it. Read More Here…
