Russian (?) girls
While I have no objections to pictures of pretty girls appearing on my Friends' feed, I can't help but wonder whether the recent posts (which seem to have comments disabled) actually have anything to do with law (or indeed languages, as similar pictures also appeared in the "interlingual" group).

Would anyone care to translate? Many thanks

Правила работы с юристом (смех сквозь слёзы)
 Правило 1. Право - это такая вещь, в которой разбираются все. Любой менеджер, сотрудник кредитного отдела, бухгалтерии и т.д. может самостоятельно подготовить любой договор, а также дать заключение по любому Юридическому вопросу. Для этого нужно обзавестись немногим - диском под названием типа "все договоры на одном диске" и парой книжечек типа "все, что надо знать о праве" или "как заключать договоры". Любой договор с такого диска можно применить ко всем ситуациям. Так, договор поставки можно применять, независимо от того, продаете Вы тушенку или сложное оборудование, внутри страны или за рубеж.
И еще на различного рода совещаниях и переговорах юрист присутствовать не должен - он будет только мешаться, а все, что он может сказать, Вы знаете и сами.

Юрист не волшебник
Не первый раз сталкиваемся с такой проблемой (оказываемся в ситуации), когда клиент юридической компании, не до конца понимает чем именно может помочь отдельно взятый юрист или компания, с которой заключён договор на юридическое обслуживание, в целом. Что имеется в виду? Всё чень просто - прежде чем обратиться к специалистам (юристам, адвокатам) с просьбой помочь разобраться в спорных моментах вашей жизни, вы должны понять, что вы обращаетесь не к волшебнику, фокуснику, человеку котрый знает всё на свете и, более того, знает всех на свете... нет - вы обращаетесь за помощью к юристу, и, скорее всего, он является узкоспециализированным специалистом. Чем такой специалист может быть вам полезен? Всё зависит от спора, который вы хотите решить в свою пользу.Например, вы смело можете расчитывать на получение консультации, подготовку документов, участие юриста на переговорах, при необходимости - участие в досудебном и судебном процессах и т.д. При этом, ваш представитель действует в рамках закона и "прыгнуть выше своей головы" он не сможет.

Why Scalia Was Right About the Fourth Amendment
Last month, the Supreme Court handed down their decision in Hudson v. Michigan. This decision was immediately decried by civil libertarians as the first step towards the end of the Exclusionary Rule, at least in the as a tool to protect the rights guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment. It appears to be unlikely that the Court will jettisoned this rule any time soon, since Justice Kennedy, whose vote was necessary to the court’s majority seemed to more focused on the fact that the evidence would still have been found had the police properly executed their warrant. Additionally, Justice Scalia’s majority opinion seemed to rely on the fact that the twenty-second waiting period that the police failed to provide in this case was not sufficiently serious to justify the “substantial social costs” associated with the exclusion of the evidence; members of the majority still may see other Fourth Amendment violations as justifying these social costs.

Whether or not the Hudson case signals the beginning of the end for the Exclusionary Rule, it does provide an opportunity to consider whether the Exclusionary Rule is an appropriate remedy for violations of the Fourth Amendment. While many of us have grown up always thinking that the natural result of an improper search is that that the prosecution may not use that evidence at trial, this has not always been the case. The Constitution does not explicitly spell out the Exclusionary rule, but rather the Supreme Court created it as a tool to protect a defendant’s Fourth Amendment rights in 1914. As Justice Scalia points out, this is not the only available way to protect the Fourth Amendment and it does bring with it certain costs.

The rest of my argumentCollapse )

Can't find a job
I was wondering if anyone can give me any advice in finding a legal job. I've gone through OCI and one round of sending out resumes with hardly a bite. I'm about to send out my resume to some smaller firms in my area, but I don't want to just repeate whatever mistakes I've been making so far.

I'm a 3rd year law student at Fordham Law School. I'm about in the middle of my class standings, but I'm an associate editor on the IP Law Journal. I also have been working in the Family Advocacy Clinic since the fall. I have a background in computer science, but I'm not really interest in IP or technology law. Primarily I'm interested in real estate, T&E and family law.

The resume that I've been sending out so far can be found here and my cover letter can be found here. Both are in word format.

I appreciate any help anyone can provide.

How does a lawyer present evidence of his own actions?
Tomorrow I am representing a client at an impartial hearing. A large portion of my case deals with the actions that previous students in my law clinic had taken to try to get the Board of Education to schedule a meeting with the BOE. Because of the informal nature of an impartial hearing, there shouldn't be any problem presenting evidence of these actions, basically I will just say that it happened, but it got me wondering how I would go about doing so in an actual trial with strictor rules of evidence, especially if I had been handling the case the whole time. I am under the impression that in order to present evidence at a trial, you need someone to take the stand. It seems wierd thatt a lawyer would call themself to the stand, but I'm not sure how else you would present this sort of evidence. Is there some other way that you can go about this?

Тема: хелп!
генеральный задал вопрос: "рассказать все по опционам!" юридически я это себе представляю, а вот фактически... хм... проблематично. так что нужна следующая помошь:
1) краткое юридическо-экономическое объяснение опциона
2) опцион в россии и с позиции российского законодательства
3) ну и личные впечатления от людей, работавших с опционами.

P.S. Постановление ФКЦБ №33 не предлагать, я его и так уже знаю... и на ст.27.1. ФЗ "О РЦБ" тож меня посылать не надо....

Succession/Inheritance Law
Greetings from Australia,

Are any of you familiar with Succession law in the UK?

I have a tip off from a friend that a will may be appealed by charities who were not left any money from the estate who had a reasonable expectation that they would. My friend is not a law student, and neither was the person she talked to.
I am doing a thesis on moral responsibility and property rights in Australia (but it is in poitical science, I am also about to talk to a law professor, just thought I would check here first.)

I am sorry if this is completely the wrong place to post - suggestions of other places most welcome.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Prospective Law Student
I'm interested in going to law school, and I'm trying to figure out how to go about it.

How does one tell one law school from another?

Any idea how hard the LSAT is? specifically, how many people ace it? how many people take it, and where could i find a breakdown of scores people get?

Anyone have any general advice?

Richard Posner
After a year and a half at law school, one of my favorite judges out there is Richard Posner. I have yet to encounter an opinion of his that I don't agree with, nor have I encountered any of his non-judicial writings that don't make quite a bit of sense.

The thing that confuses me is that I have recently heard him described as a conservative judge and found out that he was appointed by Reagan. Considering that I am fairly liberal, I find it odd that my favorite judge would be a conservative Reagan appointee.

Would any liberals out there like to explain why he's actually a nasty conservative who I should dislike or any conservatives out there like to argue that he's actually just a RINO that Reagan never would have appointed had he known what he really stood for?

Hey I have a question.
I was in public schools until my junior year of high school and I'm now a senior. Then I became homeschooled (party because all of the people there hated me). I am still homeschooled but I'm having a rough time at home. I want to go back to my high school very badly but my parents are saying "Too bad you're not 18 because you need our signature to go back there." Im only 17. I'll be 18 in July but then it doesn't matter anymore because I will be going to college.
So my question is:
Do I really need their signature?
If so, is there any way around that?

And if not, how do I go back to school? I know I can't just walk in there one day, do I call the principle?

Thank you so much for any help at all!

Statute of Limitations on Misdemeanors
Does anyone know how long a state has to prosecute a misdemeanor offense? If you don't know, do you know any resources which would help me find out?

To be specific, a friend of mine got an underage drinking ticket in Indiana in May. She hasn't heard from the state and has tried to contact them with no results.

My position is that she should assume she will be charged and have to go to court. I told her keep the money for fines and court set aside for a while. What I am hoping is to find some evidence of the statute so I can convince her to hold onto her cash until the ticket arrives.

Any help would be appreciated.

Interview Advice
Next week I am going to early interview week for summer associateships and I was wondering if I could bother anyone for advice. I currently have a goatee and I am wondering whether it would make sense, when going on my first legal interviews, to be clean cut instead. Anyone have any advise?

Does Law have a Moral Basis?
I'm not a law student or a lawyer, but out of curiosity, I'd like to know whether you believe laws have a moral basis. I think, at heart, all law does have a moral foundation. Even if, say, the aim of law is to maximize economic efficiency in a society, that aim itself is moral, because it chooses "efficiency" as a worthy social goal over other, sometimes competing aims (for instance, equity). Also, I believe our common understanding of law is based on right and wrong-- it's wrong to murder, as opposed to it's merely inefficient to allow murder.
