Q: 

What type of bachelor degree are lawyers looking for when they want to hire a paralegal?!?

A:  Call a local law office and ask them for advice . You can have a BA in any area, but something like English will be better than Physics. :) However, what is most important is experience. Where I live, you cannot get hired without at least 2 years. Even if you have a formal education! I live near several major cities and very few ads want BAs. They want experience and now, more are asking for a formal, ABA-approved education. The approval is very important! I think a BA will set you apart, but it will not be a deciding factor. I was enrolled in an approved paralegal program, but I left it. Why? I was advised to find an entry-level job to get experience. Apparently, the fact that I have a BA made me overqualified and also, I lost out on a...

Q: 

Theft Under $5000, Ontario, What To Do?

A:  Yes, he is still covered under the Young Offenders Act since he is not yet 18 at the time of the crime. Note, it is now called the Youth criminal justice Act. He will get probation, maybe some community service at most. He should contact a lawyer though. If he really doesn’t want to, then have one of his parents go down and try to work something out with the prosecutor and plead guilty with a plea bargain. Well the parents already know, however he doesn''t want to get them involved at all if possible. How should he go about contacting a lawyer? What''s it going to cost? Money is an issue here, although he has no problem paying it back, financially, he would have a problem, as he...

Q: 

What can she do with her masters degree in International law/Relations?

A:  The private sector is where she should be looking. With her government experience, she should be valuable to many corporations. If she does want to pursue a law degree, she should consider doing while she is employed by someone who will foot the bill.(large international corp.) The best way for her to find a position in the private sector is to engage a top notch recruiter. Someone who specialize in international relations/ law. Do a google search, I am sure that there are a few of these people out there. As long as neocons run the government? Nothing. Awesome question!! I too am in the same boat as your friend - excpet my bachelors is in political science. However, I am leaning towards my law degree. I would love...

Q: 

Afraid no department will want to hire me in the future...?

A:  SUCKS TO BE YOU. MOST PEOPLE WHO ARE COMPLETELY WITHOUT A COLLEGE DEGREE ARE MOST OF THE TIME MORE QUALIFIED THAN THOSE DOUCHE BAGS WHO THINK THEY ARE BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE WHO HAVE A STUPID DEGREE. Try asking a department: www.chp.com (California Highway Patrol) www.joinlapd.com (Los Angeles Police Department). I am sure Florida has many Police and Sheriff''s Departments also. I am assuming you are over 21. You cannot become a sworn Police Officer anywhere until you are. Let them be the ones to tell you no. If one says no, ask what you can do to have a better chance of being hired. Keep trying. Good Luck. It may be that they think once you get your degree you will move on to bigger and better things and they are looking for someone more permanent. Happens it happened to me. Get...

Q: 

Can A Class C felony for escape be dropped?

A:  your rap sheet is pretty long. your family stuff doesn''t matter. So let that alone. What actually happened with the speeding and the escaping? What do you mean "no real criminal history?" You already have a couple of misdemeanors under your belt. You probably should be considering a different major than criminal justice (and I''d stay out of transportation) even if they do drop the escape charge. You need a lawyer. Even the speeding charge is bad enough (sheesh 3 miles over?... slow the hell down). The felony isn''t going to go away on it''s own. Public defenders are for the indigent who can not pay as opposed to those that are unwilling. They do work...

Q: 

How to become a 911 dispatcher?

A:  Many 911 centers are independent of the local police go to officer.com realpolice.net policeone.com and check the jobs/careers section. They have listings for dispatcher/call taker. You can then see the different qualifications wanted. While certification is needed in most states you are no expected (in most cases cannot get the training until hired) to be certified first. Once hired they teach you and get you certified by the state/NCIC and everything else. You have to be able to speak clearly and work under pressure. You must type perfectly at at least 35 wpm, some require 45 wpm. If you have working knowledge of a foreign language spoken in the area of service you have an edge. It is not that competitive a field. it is a hard and...

Q: 

I want to join the FBI, how does this sound?

A:  Why in the world would you join the FBI, they''re instrumental in destroying our Civil Rights. Besides, their founder was a gay little cross-dressing f**k who jailed people for doing the same thing. Why don''t you look up the biographies of Leonard Peltier, Martin Luther King (oh yes my friend the FBI kept a BIG file on MLK), Jean Seberg, Randy Weaver, and think again about doing some GOOD in the world, which would be to NOT join the FBI. The FBI is a rogue organization which must be dismantled if we''re ever going to have peace in this country, and respect for ALL people of color, which they don''t. Unless of course, you''re a hater in which case you''ll fit right in!! Ask the Holy Spirit of the Lord, that is where you will get your truths from. FBI= Firm Believer In Christ. :O) I do...
