Recently, many people have enjoyed to learn violin at home. Learning a music instrument such as violin can be not an easy task. Sometimes, we must have more than a talent. Before becoming a professional and skillful violinist, a person must show his or her persistence to give his or her best playing violin. More than anything else, we must have courage to start trying or playing violin. There are several things we should know on how to start playing violin to be good violinist.

The first one is our motivation. If you have a good and strong motivation to learn a violin, the only thing you have to is just to keep moving forward. Conveying a message from your play should sincerely come from your heart. When you have no motivation to play violin, you will end up with playing violin without any excitement. The second one is our persistence and consistency to practice regularly. More so, if you want to be skillful, you must always sharpen your skill every day. We can start with a short time. For instance, we can start to take fifteen minutes to practice playing violin every day and stick with the schedule you have made.

Make Students Say, " We Love Writing!”

If you have a great interest in writing, you can give academic writing help to your students. It does not mean that you become the one finishing their writing assignments. You can become assistance for your students. It will not only help your students to write properly but also to make yourself happy since you can give something useful for your students. Therefore, you can try some ways to make your students love writing.

The first way is to ask your students writing outside the classroom. You can teach them to think out of the box by breaking any limits or borders. Sometimes, students easily get bored when they are “trapped” in a room. You should make sure that you give a freedom for your students to write anything. If necessary, you can stimulate them with some ideas or inspirations exist in our surroundings. Tell your students that they are free to write anything from their mind. It can be their feelings, their problems, or experience.

The second way is to ask your students writing their personal experience. Maybe you have an experience to give a letter writing help to your student. Then, you know that the easiest way to build enthusiasm in writing is to write something which is related or close to our life. Once a week, you can let one of your students to read his/her personal experience on his/her journal. Do not forget to allocate your time to read all of your students’ work. You can give some rewards to those having an impressive personal experience. This can motivate your students to write more.

However, there is a possibility that it may take a quite long time to make all of your students love writing. The key is to let your students feel fun and enjoyable when they are writing. Once they get motivated or excited into writing, gradually they will love writing and more so that they get addicted into writing.

How to Find a Good Lawyer in London

The thing about capital cities is that they are often rather large; this can be a great thing when you are a tourist, taking in the sights and sounds of London town, with so many things to do every day, yet when you are trying to find a good lawyer, it can be a bit of a nightmare!
Lawyers flock to London as it really is the place to be if you want to get to the top of any major industry in the UK; this means that there are a plethora of lawyers to choose from, yet the question is, how do we find the right one? Sure, one may offer the best advice, yet charge unreasonable prices, or another may be cheap as chips but not know the first thing about winning a case!
How to Find a Good Lawyer in LondonMany of the city's law firms are situated in the heart of the city, with places like Bond street and Goodge street littered with be-suited ladies and gentlemen, trotting off on the daily grind, many of whom lawyers that could help you with your case.
A London lawyer may not be any different to any other lawyer in the UK, with the obvious exception of the fast talking accent and the sky high prices! However, simply because you are in the capital city, does not mean that you have to pay through the nose for legal advice; by searching the market and comparing different lawyer's price ranges, you are sure to find a bargain.
It is here where the secret to finding a good London lawyer lies; research. If you go for the first lawyer that you find, then you are almost certainly not going to get the best bargain, unless you are extremely lucky.

Stay in London With Your Mother-in-Law?

Stay in London With Your Mother-in-Law?So, you should visit your mother-in-law in London but don't really want to stay the night with her? Well, there are plenty of alternative places to stay in London and loads of things to do whilst in the Capital.
Hotels in London are quite well-known for their high costs; however, if you have some foresight and plan ahead, you can stay there without emptying your pockets. Accommodation in London is variable, ranging from luxury, 5-star hotels to snug and comfortable bed & breakfast pubs and guest houses. A great way to save money on accommodation in London without staying with your mother-in-law is to simply choose to go in the off-season time. Accommodation in London is extremely expensive and quite hard to find over the summer. In general, accommodation in London is the most expensive in the UK and Ireland.
It's possible to stay in London on a slim budget. B&Bs are comparatively cheap places where you can stay in London and still be comfortable.
You could even become a member of Hostelling International and get discounts on accommodation, trips, activities and admission to museums and cultural centres. If you get an international youth hostel card, you can stay in London hostels for under $30 a night. You can join through your local Youth Hostel Association.
Your mother-in-law may offer you a meal but if not there are plenty of places to eat, but eating out is generally expensive in London. But it is a place that enjoys diverse restaurants offering cuisines of different kinds and places. In fact, they rival the restaurants of some of the modern and thickly populated American cities like New York and San Francisco.
Some of the finest bars and restaurants in London may be on your mother-in-law's doorstep, along with many attractions like Buckingham Palace and the Royal Academy of Arts.
London has some ambitious Indian restaurants that offer outstanding and original Indian cuisine. Some Indian restaurants even specialise in the cuisines of another country, calling it their own and attracting new admirers to it.
You may prefer French food and whilst there are excellent French restaurants in London they can also be found in Greater London, too. It's true that restaurants in London are famous for variety and you'll find just about every type of food imaginable from all over the world but probably not quite like your mother-in-law will provide! Restaurants in London are certainly not cheap and you may sometimes have to cough up more than you bargained for! Remember that if you stay at a guest house in London, you may be able to arrange an evening meal along with your bed and breakfast.
Some of the places you can visit whilst you are in London include the British Museum, Natural History Museum, the London Eye, Tate Modern, National Gallery, Science Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Madam Tussauds (now with a new figure of Michael Jackson), the Tower of London and National Maritime Museum. Other places to visit in London include Covent Garden, Harrods in Knightsbridge for some retail therapy, the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich, London Zoo, Hampton Court Palace (try the maze) and Kew Gardens. A guest house in London makes a very good base from which to visit all of these interesting places.

Starting Your Legal Career

Legal Career
Whether you are a law student or just interested in working within the legal industry, breaking into the working legal world can be a daunting prospect. The hierarchical nature of the law industry and the hard work involved in becoming a qualified and certified lawyer means that entering the workforce usually means working your way from the bottom up. The experience gained from such entry level work, however, is crucial and a fundamental stepping stone in being a proactive, sharp and perceptive participant in the industry. If you're looking at jumpstarting your law career, then here are a couple of ways to get your foot in the door.
Internship and clerkship opportunities. Most law firms offer internships - often over the summer or on a longer basis - to law students who are eager to gain experience and put their law degree into practice. As with most businesses, cost cutting can be a priority so these clerkships and internships can be either paid, or unpaid. As a law student, a part time clerkship role can be a great way to earn money while getting hands on experience while you study.
Paralegal or admin work. If you haven't undertaken any legal studies, there are still a number of job opportunities available in law firms and other legal areas. Paralegal and office admin work are two important areas where those looking to break into the industry should start.
Extracurricular activities. For those still studying it's easy to add weight and credentials to your CV by participating in extracurricular activities. Whether this means getting involved in mock trial competitions, your university's law society activities or writing for school related journals or newspapers, all of these supplementary activities will give you valuable experience and an impressive CV.
Volunteer Work. Many non-profits, public interest organisations, legal clinics and legal aid offices are desperate for volunteers and will eagerly take you up on the offer of your time. Although volunteer work is unpaid, their reliance on volunteers means you are likely to be given wider responsibility and get exposure to a wider range of clients, roles and cases.
Use your personal contacts. As true with any industry or job search, it's important to rely on, and use any personal contacts or relationships that you already have. If you're a law student, for example, maintain good relationships with your professors and lawyers who will often hear of job roles or internships first, and thus be able to pass them on to you. Whether you're working in Sydney or London, legal careers will be easier to come by when you have legal work experience behind you and on your resume. If your ultimate goal is to be a Sydney lawyer, jobs will be easier to come by when you have a work history in the law sector.

Verbal Contracts and Managing Disputes Under UK Law

Certainty and Completeness of Agreement
Agreement is reached between contracting parties when an offer is made by one party and is unequivocally accepted by the other party. The offer must be sufficiently certain so as the parties know what is to be done by them, and the agreement must be complete, in the legal sense. An agreement is incomplete when an essential term has not been agreed or there are further matters to be agreed. Agreements 'in principle' are usually considered not to be complete, as are contracts expressly stated to be 'subject to contract'. In deciding whether a contract is complete, a court will consider a contract to be formed when, from the viewpoint of an officious bystander, the parties have agreed in the same terms on the same subject matter.
Verbal Contracts and Conduct
There is no legal impediment to two (or even more) parties entering into a contract based on their conduct and verbal statements or representations. Obviously, when the parties agree the terms of the contract by verbal statements, the binding terms of the contract are more difficult to ascertain and prove. Usually a court will look to the history of the performance of the parties to obtain assistance in determining what was actually agreed by the parties. Where one person however has not performed their part of the bargain, the court is left to more uncertain means in reaching a decision. Draft contract documents, emails, letters and order forms may lend assistance to deciding the terms of a verbal agreement, and courts have used similar agreements with third parties to apply a standard of reasonableness in determining the terms of the contract in the absence of writing.
Confirmation in Writing
In the event that a party refuses to sign a contract or an oral agreement is reached, in our view, it is essential to write to the person and confirm the terms of the contract as they are understood, to provide a greater degree of certainty - that may be proved by evidence at a later date - what the actual terms of the contract were. It may be useful to know that where a verbal agreement has been reached, which is later confirmed in writing but the written document does not properly record the terms, the contract may be rectified using the doctrine of rectification so as to reflect the actual agreement between the parties.

Law Schools Offer Accredited Master of Laws (LLM) Programs to Lawyers Online

With the advent of globalization, lawyers now need to know international and comparative laws. Generally, the legal profession has seen a rise in cross-border issues vis-à-vis international trade, intellectual property and technology, transnational workers and families, human rights, and socio-economic and environmental policies. While traditionally a Master of Laws (LL.M.) is a coveted degree for those in academia, in recent times, more and more practicing lawyers are enrolling in LL.M. programs to enhance their professional skills and gain specialized knowledge.
Many brick-and-mortar law schools (as opposed to wholly online universities) now offer lawyers the opportunity to earn an LL.M. degree online:
• University of Aberdeen located in Aberdeen, Scotland offers online LL.M. degree in International Business.
• Boston University School of Law located in Boston, United States offers online Executive LL.M. degree in International Business.

Online LL.M. programs offer greater flexibility to lawyers who are employed. Lawyers can learn at their own pace without having to take a break from work or physically relocate. Additionally, lawyers can choose from a greater number of LL.M. programs from anywhere in the world. Also, online LL.M. programs can be less expensive.
Prior to choosing an online LL.M. program, however, potential applicants should research and know the specifics. Among other things, consider the reputation of the program and the law school, teacher credentials and expertise, tuition fee and other costs, Internet connectivity, class size, school calendar, teaching methods and the availability supplemental help. Online learning maybe the best possible option for practicing lawyers to develop their skills professionally and keep pace with the emerging legal issues due to globalization.

Recommended Theatre Events For the London Autumn

When the weather turns brisk after a wet and none-too-warm summer we Brits well know that now is the time to enjoy London. The winter is too cold and miserable and the summer is generally blighted by hordes of tourists. But the Spring and Autumn are the highlights of the year with the best cultural events and reasonable weather to enjoy them. This Autumn there is heaps to do with theatre a particular highlight.
Recommended London theatre
Right now there are a number of particularly good productions on stage in London. Whether you are interested in musicals or serious theatre there are in excess of 75 plays in production. However, as I know that many visitors in London are after a jolly show I have profiled three musicals below as well as a serious piece theatre which promises to be one of the most talked-about productions of the decade.
The 39 Steps has just past its second birthday at the Criterion and has just announced that its run has been extended yet again. The play is adapted from the novel by nineteenth century novelist John Buchan and the 1935 film of the book by Alfred Hitchcock. The play is a comedic spoof-thriller about Richard Hannay a London gentleman who is drawn into a foreign plot and ends up on the run himself after a woman is found murdered in his flat. I saw the original London show at the Tricycle before it opened at the Criterion and it is heartily recommended. The production won "Best New Comedy" at the Olivier Awards in 2006. A Broadway spin-off won two Tony Awards this year.
Grease. London revival of the 1972 Broadway hit immortalised by Olivia Newton John and John Travolta in the 1978 film. This 2007 revival has been much acclaimed by critics and audiences. It is full of life and energy and will leave you singing the songs and feeling great.
The Donmar Warehouse is known in London for its confronting dramas. It is an intimate theatre around a horseshoe stage with only three rows so you can feel the actor's effort and sweat throughout. The theatre attracts major stars returning to the stage for intellectual refreshment. In its latest production Shakespeare veteran Kenneth Branagh has cast Hollywood heart-throb Jude Law as Hamlet. Will Law succeed in such a cramped domain? Many stars have returned to the stage in London to sold-out runs but critical panning. I think Law is cut above the rest and will enhance his reputation in this performance which is certain to be one of the most talked-about shows of the year.
The Phantom is back. Andrew Lloyd Webber's classic romance has been revived at Her Majesty's theatre. For those who remember the London launch of the musical in the 1980s, relive the magic.
After the show catch a late supper at Gaucho Piccadilly. Gaucho is a chain of Argentinean restaurants which are recognised as having the best steaks in London. Try an Argentinean merlot with your steak; it should have much more spice and body than the typically soft European and Californian versions of the grape.
Getting to the theatre district is easy. On the Central Line you have stations at Holborn, Tottenham Court Road or Oxford Circus. On the Piccadilly Line Leicester Square, Covent Garden and Holborn (again) may all be helpful. In addition there are plenty of buses from all over London.

Employment Law: Time Limits for Bringing Employment Tribunal Claims

In the case of Chouafi v London United Busways Ltd [2005], the claimant was employed as a bus driver by the defendant company. In October 2003, he was diagnosed with severe depression and was signed off work until February 2004. He was dismissed in January 2004 on the grounds of his medical condition and complained to the employment tribunal of unfair dismissal and disability discrimination.
The Employment Rights Act 1996 provides that an employment tribunal shall not consider a complaint for unfair dismissal unless it is presented to the tribunal within three months of the effective date of termination of employment. However this three-month limitation period may be extended if the tribunal considers that in the relevant case, it was not reasonably practicable for the complaint to be presented within the three months. There are similar provisions under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.
The tribunal decided that:-
The complaint of unfair dismissal had not been presented within the three-month time limit, pursuant to s 111 of the Employment Rights Act 1996;
The complaint of disability discrimination had not been presented within the three-month time limit, pursuant to the para 3 Schedule 3 of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995; and 
Accordingly, the tribunal did not have jurisdiction to hear the claims. 
The employee appealed to the Employment Appeal Tribunal ("EAT") against the decision. The EAT held that:-

Decisions on whether or not a claim would be admitted out of time, for unfair dismissal or disability discrimination, were essentially questions of facts on which the tribunal should decide based upon the evidence submitted by the parties;
The onus of proof was on the claimant to show it was not reasonably practicable to bring an action within the three-month time limit;
If the claimant failed to discharge that burden of proof, his/her case would inevitably fail;
In this case, the claimant failed to attend the hearing and provide more evidence about his mental health; and 
The Tribunal was right in concluding that the employee had failed to provide an adequate explanation for filing his claim outside the time limit; and

The tribunal's decision would be upheld.

The Future of London and New York As Financial Centers

"Do not write off New York and London," is the title of an article written by Michael Skapinker in the Financial Times (30th of September). According to his opinion he figures that those two cities will remain leaders in Finance despite the negative publicity in the last month.
Three arguments support his idea:
Language. "Lehman brothers may have gone overnight, it takes centuries for a language to disappear." According to his argument, a global generation has invested years learning English which has no ready challenger.
Law. Despite the outrageous fees for lawyers in both cities, no other city would offer defence for corporate rights, at least not credible: Do you believe Moscow or Shanghia would?
Collective brain power. Although this "may seem laughable given where bankers supposed intelligence has landed us now," but he argues that these cities as they are open will also offer the solution.
"The next 30 years will be different," but London and New York will be back, that is ... according to Skapinker.
Looked at it from an other side, the first argument could be inverted: the world has really become global and English is no longer the language of the US (or Canada) and UK (or Australia), but has become a global language. Also in Finance. Why stick to London or New York for financial matters rather than in Geneva, Amsterdam or Madrid?
Law and lawyers. What will globalization do with law? When at last will law change to be more transparent? It is one of the territories that has escaped any critic, whereas lawyers are (more often) the problem rather than the solution. If there ought to be a single-global-currency, I would argue it to be universal (financial) law.
Collective brainpower? Why are medical specialists so intelligent whereas hospitals (as an institute) can be so foolish? Why can a financial specialist be so smart and a bank so stupid? Knowledge management has failed because of specialization. Both London and New York are symbolic for financial stupidity and that will have to change. We need to think different and cooperate between and over specializations. That wisdom will not come from New York, nor from London. I think.
What about networking? Why would two cities dominate, where there is so much knowledge spread around the world. Rather than two monoliths I would argue that the new financial order is divided between a large network of smaller entities...

Loading Bans in the United Kingdom

The loading and unloading of goods is one of the few exemptions to on-street parking restrictions in the UK.However a loading restriction, incorporating a prohibition on both loading and parking is one of the most misunderstood by drivers in the country leading to the needless incurring of parking tickets.
Parking prohibitions in the UK are most commonly represented by yellow lines. But there are also widespread bans on footway, overnight and crossover parking. However all these bans are overridden under certain circumstances by the allowance to load and unload for specific periods.
Nevertheless certain stretches of highway are regarded as too risky to permit long term parking to facilitate loading/unloading. Such stretches, such as busy junctions or intersections are marked with yellow lines accompanied by Kerb Chevrons or Marks. Kerb Chevrons are small yellow strips marked on the kerb beside a yellow line drawn along the carriageway edge. These chevrons ban both parking and loading for the period stated on nearby white upright signs that must always accompany them. Or in other words, they override the usual loading allowance on yellow line restricted streets.
There are 2 types of loading bans represented by Kerb Chevrons. They are -.
• Single Kerb Chevrons
• Double Kerb Chevrons
Single Kerb Chevrons
Single Kerb Chevrons are represented by suitably spaced single kerb marks on the kerb and they ban loading largely during the morning and evening rush hour, with a window in-between where the activity will be permitted as an allowance on the accompanying yellow line. For instance a sign stating - NO loading 8.30am - 1030 and 4.30pm - 6.30pm. This will prohibit loading/unloading during the period stated, but permit it within the window of 1030am - 4.30pm. Single Kerb Chevrons can be marked against both single and double yellow lines.
Double Kerb Chevrons
Double Kerb Chevrons represent a 24 hour parking and loading ban and they can only be marked against double yellow lines. They must always be accompanied by a white upright time plate specifying the restriction and its hours of enforcement.
Kerb Chevron/mark Design rules.
1. Kerb chevrons must always be accompanied by upright signs (time plates) specifying the restrictions and their operational hours
2. Kerb Chevrons must be signed for every 15 metres of restriction
3. Kerb Chevrons must be placed in such a manner as to ensure that there will be at least one set beside a standard length car
4. Both single and double kerb markings must be backed by a Traffic Order (Traffic Regulation Order in London) by the local authority imposing it.
Legislation and Traffic Sign Guidelines for Kerb Chevrons
All loading bans must be backed by relevant Traffic Orders (Traffic Regulation Orders in London). Traffic orders are the legal instruments which Local authorities in the UK promulgate to establish and enforce their parking restrictions and controls. They are issued under the auspices of the Road Traffic Act 1984 and the Traffic Management Act 2004 and must be promulgated in line with the stipulations of the Local Authorities Traffic Orders (Procedure) (England and Wales) Regulations 1996 which require some form of prior consultation and publication of intent in a local newspaper.
Kerb Chevrons, representing loading bans and their accompanying upright signs are standard UK traffic markings and signs and must be designed and positioned in accordance with the stipulations of the main UK traffic standard - The Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions TSRGD 2002. Design standards for Kerb marks or chevrons are found in schedule 6 of this document while the upright signs that must accompany them are authorised in schedule 2. All markings and signs not in accordance with the specifications of the TSRGD will be invalid and any parking tickets issued on them open to challenge.
Single and double Kerb marks are authorised by TSRGD 2002 Regulations 4 and Directions 7, 23, 24(1), 24(4) 25 and explained in the Traffic Signs Manual Chapter 5 section 20.7 on page 116 -117.
The accompanying signs for both single and double kerb markings are authorised by the Traffic Signs Regulation and General Directions TSRGD 2002 - Directions 7, 11, 24(1) and 25.
Enforcing Loading Prohibitions in the UK
Loading bans in the UK are enforced by Contravention code 02. They are amongst the most stringent UK restrictions on stationary vehicles and carry few exemptions. However they do not disallow parking by vehicles involved in statutory works. Nor do they prevent stopping which occurs when a vehicle parks on the public highway in compliance to a traffic control/instruction or to allow passengers alight or disembark from a vehicle, provided there is no delay in either activity.

Law Firm Marketing 101

Law firm marketing is comprised of many different elements. The analysis of your firm in law practice management can be complex, however, lets begin with a key success variable - your current client base. Managing your client base is the most important aspect of your law firm marketing efforts. I suggest you begin with grading your clients.

The ABCD Solution

In looking at your client base for law firm marketing purposes, you can use a time-tested method of analysis. This is the key concept of "ABCD clients". Service professionals of many types use this method to accurately rate and organize their client base. And for effective marketing for law firms, this method is priceless. By the way it is not just about marketing. It is also about serving your clients better than ever.

As you certainly know in schools we use the letter grading system to rank the students in order of how well they perform on papers, tests, quizzes, etc. Similarly we will "grade" our clients. So think of your client grading system for law firm marketing as summing up all the aspects of a good client.

A client who gets an "A" would be one who has reasonable expectations, follows your instructions, is grateful for the work you do as well as courteous and professional in their demeanor with both you and in particular your staff. In fact if you are ever wondering if someone is an "A" client or a "D" client just ask your staff. The "A" client sends you referrals that turn into "A" clients as well. The "A" client is never concerned with the fees you charge since they know your services are worth the cost. They pay their bills on time all the time. And finally, their cases are interesting and substantial matters. Now isn't this the kind of client you are aiming for in your law firm marketing in the first place? Additionally, have you ever heard the old saying "birds of a feather flock together"? This means your "A" clients know a lot of other "A" clients who they can refer to you if you play your cards right.

Of course a client with a "B" grade would have many of the same qualities of the "A" client, but not all. A client with a "C" grade would be closer to a "D" client. A client with a "D" grade is the complete opposite of all the characteristics of an "A" client. They don't have reasonable expectations, they pay their bills late (some not at all), try to negotiate lower fees or retainers, don't follow your instructions (may even think they know better than you do), are rude or unprofessional, they do not send referrals (or if they do they are also "C or D" clients), their matters are not substantial and interesting, and they often complain about normal fees. Not a pretty picture these "D" clients. Let your competitors have them!

In targeting your law firm marketing, "C & D" clients are not the kind of client you want to attract. Most firms find that "C & D" clients take up between sixty to eighty percent of their time and efforts, while only bringing in twenty to forty percent of the firm's revenue. Does it make sense to cultivate this type "C & D" business? Of course not. You need to stop taking "C & D" business and "fire" (ethically of course) any "C & D" business that you can. Even if you only begin with the "Ds" it is a beginning. Quite liberating as well my clients report to fire these folks.

Effective marketing for law firms includes a realistic look at what will bring the best benefit for the best clients. Ridding yourself of clients who are graded a "C or D" is one of the best things you can do for your "A & B" clients. Without spending all your time on the "C & D" problems and concerns, you can pour your attention into your "A & B" clients (moving their matters to conclusion faster thus you can do more of them). Thus the "A & B" clients will be even more satisfied, resulting in more referrals and more business from them. Clearly a "win/win" for all.

Another big, big advantage of spending less or no time on your "C & D" business is you can focus more time on developing your "A & B" referral network. Your increased marketing time and more focused law firm marketing will result in more quality "A & B" business.

What I have found working individually with over 500 attorneys is most of you will need to limit your practice areas to one, two or maybe (and I do mean maybe) three practice areas in order to drop your "C & D" cases. Too many attorneys are practicing "threshold law" that is defined as taking anything that comes across the threshold of your office. In selecting your practice areas try to incorporate cross-salable areas, such as wills and trusts, real estate, and/or estate planning for example. Select the most lucrative practice areas you have and then pour your law firm marketing efforts into those targeted practice areas while focusing on "A & B" clients and referral sources. This may be a bit frightening at first and in the long run you will be extremely glad you did.

In a drunk driving case, the prosecutor will always point out the several factors as evidence to prove that you were drunk driving.

They can always say that you have a poor navigation of your vehicle, you have an odor of alcohol in your breath and even your appearance of being intoxicated .However, each piece of DUI evidence can be consider as ambiguous by a  Tampa DUI Lawyer and are always subject for multiple interpretations and faulty assumptions. Unfortunately, there is always a floss in identifying whether a person is drunk or not. Numbers of innocent people get convicted of DUI and eventually pleads guilty due to the spurious prosecution evidence. Legally speaking, if you have an attorney to have your reviewed, conviction would be far from what you think the day after your arrest. Why? Because of the fact that DUI attorneys are trained to challenge every evidences that the prosecutors presents in the court.

Basically after the arrest, the Tampa DUI Lawyer would ask determine if the police officer had failed to read the “Miranda Rights” to the defendant. A person have the right to remain silent until his attorney would advice him to disclose information regarding the case. The police officer have no right to force the offender to speak against his will. If the officer continues to interrogates you after placing you in a custody without reading your “Miranda Rights” and has a valid waiver, then your previous statements given yo him will be excluded from the list of evidences.

Second, weaving within the lane does not justify that a DUI traffic stop. Many officers claims that they have observe the suspect waiving within his lane which made to do a DUI traffic stop. The court have actually ruled that this could not justify a DUI traffic stop unless the experienced officer had observed a pronounced weaving for a substantial distance. If the court finds out that the DUI traffic stop was not justified, then, there is a tendency for the dismissal of the case. Some officers always lack of justification to make a DUI traffic stop. In conducting a lawful traffic stop, an officer must provide a specific articulable facts that you have committed a traffic violation. On the other hand, the  Tampa DUI Lawyer can always argue that the alcohol in your breath does not mean that the defendant is under the influence of alcohol. Moreover, he can always argue about the officer's lack of probable cause for the DUI arrest. Another thing that a  Tampa DUI Lawyer can challenge is the issue about over speeding. Most officers pulled over a person who is over speeding and charged them of drunk driving. According to some national studies, there is no correlation between drunk driving and over speeding. It is a fact that over speeding is a violation of the law in its own right but it cannot be use as evidence in DUI.

What was once considered a boring courtroom job is now being considered as one of the most challenging and rewarding career options available today. One must however prepare for joining law student jobs right from the beginning. The right educational qualifications are very essential in this field and if you lag behind in showing up your papers you might not grow very huge in this law student employment. Be it law clerk jobs or paralegal jobs everything requires good grades.

Decide on a law school first. Remember the better a law school the more are your chances of growing faster in this field. Also keep in mind that getting admission in the best of law schools is not child play. You will need to show excellent high school results.

Law students often carry many misconceptions or myths about law school. Read on to find out a few of the top law school myths:

Myth 1: It is a really bad world out there. Do not expect everything to be fair at a law school. Law might be fare but that doesnt necessarily mean that law schools are fair too. You have to fight it out on your own to survive.

Myth 2: Your professors will teach you what is required and if there is something else you feel important go through it yourself. You do not want to be made a joke of by complaining after an exam that few of the questions were not taught in the class.

Myth 3: Do not live in a hope that your professor will guide you as to what is going to come in the exam. Remember its an undergraduate course and thus you will need to work hard on your own to secure good grades. For example an exam will never test you on lessons taught in the second semester if you are in the first but a bit of explanation which is covered in the second semester is sure to score a few extra points.

Myth 4: Never think that exams are designed to test everything which was covered in a semester. This is humanly impossible coz the huge volume of matter covered in a particular semester is just too much to finish off. The exams usually revolve around a small segment of the whole syllabus.

Myth 5: It is common student behaviour to think that the textbooks recommended by the professors will have everything they will require to clear the exams. This however is not the case here. Almost every lawyer will tell you how little help it was. You will have to collect information you need from various sources like the internet, newspapers, lectures, interviews, etc.
