Question by Mderate: To Kill a Mockingbird- What were the differences between the two trials? Your thoughts?
What were the differences between process and result in the “two trails” and what did it mean to be a “good lawyer” ?

Additional Details

Any chance of getting any REAL discussion ? I’m looking for in depth opinions and ideas.

No silly, “read the book”, “answers”, please. I HAVE read the book, but I’d like to hear others views of the book.
Thanks !

Though the verdict is unfortunate, Atticus feels some satisfaction that the jury took so long deciding. Usually, the decision would be made in minutes, because a black man’s word would not be trusted. Atticus is hoping for an appeal, but unfortunately Tom tries to escape from his prison and is shot to death in the process. Jem has trouble handling the results of the trial, feeling that his trust in the goodness and rationality of humanity has been betrayed.

HELP LAW PEOPLE! What is the difference between a “prosecuting attorney” and a “deputy prosecutor”?

Question by Chloe: HELP LAW PEOPLE! What is the difference between a “prosecuting attorney” and a “deputy prosecutor”?
Are they the same? If not, why?
Do you know of a website that explains further? I’m considering hiring a former deputy prosecutor as a criminal defense lawyer. Thank you.

Answer by Thomas T
It probably makes no difference at all. From the attorney’s prospective one may have been paid more than the other. But your choice of defense attorney should include other factors including length of time as an attorney, number of trials, extent of office support, paralegals and back-up staff, etc. You can not really judge by rate of “success” since that is a rather elusive criterion and is itself subject to a multitude of factors.

What’s the Difference Between: A Lawyer, Solicitor, Advocate, Barrister, Counselor, and an Attorney?

What’s the Difference Between: A Lawyer, Solicitor, Advocate, Barrister, Counselor, and an Attorney?

Have you ever wondered where all these somewhat confusing terms came from? Well the answer is they are all types of Lawyers originated from various legal systems. Some of the terms are from the English legal system, some are from Scotland and some from the American legal system.

An Attorney is somebody legally empowered to represent another person, or act on their behalf.

A Lawyer is somebody who can give legal advice and has been trained in the law.

Are Attorney and Lawyer are synonyms? Basically yes, but they are not necessarily Interchangeable terms, you cannot for instance say I give you the Power of a Lawyer, but you definitely might say I give you the power of Attorney…

Look again at the above definitions, does it now make any sense? Off course it does.

An attorney in fact is an agent who conducts business under authority that is controlled and limited by a written document called a letter, or power, of attorney granted by the principal. An attorney at law is an officer of a court of law authorized to represent the person employing him (the client) in legal proceedings.

A Solicitor- One that solicits, especially one that seeks trade or contributions. The chief law officer of a city, town, or government department but does not act as an advocate in court, as opposed to the Attorney who pleads in court. (English Law).

A Barrister(Called Advocate in Scotland) presents the case in court. Most senior and distinguished barristers are designated King’s (Queen’s) counsel.

A Counselor at law- In the past at least in some U.S states there was a distinction between the term A Counselor at Law who argued the case in court and an attorney who prepared the case but didn’t argue it.

Nowadays an attorney at law is authorized to exercise all the functions of a practicing lawyer. All of them must, however, like the ordinary attorney, be admitted to the bar. The term attorney is also used for county, state, and federal prosecuting officers, as county attorney, district attorney, and attorney general.

Lawyers, also called attorneys, act as both advocates and advisors in our society. As advocates, they represent one of the parties in criminal and civil trials by presenting evidence and arguing in court to support their client. As advisors, lawyers counsel their clients concerning their legal rights and obligations and suggest particular courses of action in business and personal matters. Although all lawyers are licensed to represent parties in court, some appear in court more frequently than others. Trial lawyers, who specialize in trial work, must be able to think quickly and speak with ease and authority. In addition, familiarity with courtroom rules and strategy is particularly important in trial work. Still, trial lawyers spend the majority of their time outside the courtroom, conducting research, interviewing clients and witnesses, and handling other details in preparation for trial.

Lawyers types:

The legal system affects nearly every aspect of our society, from buying a home to crossing the street. Lawyers hold positions of great responsibility and are obligated to adhere to a strict code of ethics.

The more detailed aspects of a lawyer’s job depend upon his or her field of specialization and position. Although all lawyers are licensed to represent parties in court, some appear in court more frequently than others.

Lawyers may specialize in a number of different areas, such as bankruptcy, probate, international, or elder law. Those specializing in environmental law, for example, may represent public-interest groups, waste disposal companies, or construction firms in their dealings with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other Federal and State agencies. These lawyers help clients prepare and file for licenses and applications for approval before certain activities may occur. In addition, they represent clients’ interests in administrative adjudications.

Some lawyers concentrate in the growing field of intellectual property, helping to protect clients’ claims to copyrights, artwork under contract, product designs, and computer programs. Still other lawyers advise insurance companies about the legality of insurance transactions, writing insurance policies to conform with the law and to protect companies from unwarranted claims.

Most lawyers are found in private practice, where they concentrate on criminal or civil law. In criminal law, lawyers represent individuals who have been charged with crimes and argue their cases in courts of law. Attorneys dealing with civil law assist clients with litigation, wills, trusts, contracts, mortgages, titles, and leases. Other lawyers handle only public-interest cases—civil or criminal—which may have an impact extending well beyond the individual client.

These issues might involve patents, government regulations, and contracts with other companies, property interests, or collective-bargaining agreements with unions.

Other lawyers work for legal-aid societies—private, nonprofit organizations established to serve disadvantaged people. These lawyers generally handle civil, rather than criminal, cases. A relatively small number of trained attorneys work in law schools.

The real life situations have created “specialties” according to business profitability. This is how terms like Vioxx Lawyer, DUI Attorney, Lemon Law Lawyer , Structured Settlements Lawyer and others came about.

Pyramid schemes – What is the difference between legal and illegal ?

Question by ironwood9: Pyramid schemes – What is the difference between legal and illegal ?
I had a friend try to recruit me to sell Prepaid Legal Services, and they said it was a “Legal” pyramid. I’ve often heard the term “multilevel marketing,” as a better sounding term.

What is the difference ?

I went to one of these meetings, and it seems like these people eat/sleep/drink prepaid legal – it would just totally consume their life. I read here on Y/A someone had the service, and still had to pay a lawyer $ 2,000

Best answer:

Answer by worker4IAM <'><
Pyramid schemes are Illegal in many states.
If you send me a dollar today I will tell you why !
Pass it On ! HA !

Edit: A legal way around this is paying a structured payment or settlement to it’s members who are documented.
A service also has to be performed there by establishing a form of compensation for the flow of received payments to the Group or organization.
