Meaning of the law

Posted by on Jan 22, 2016 in Law |

Law represents a system of rules and society norms which regulate relationship between people and organizations and the state penalizes the violation of these norms. In moral, ethics, customs and in justice, law found its use.

Law has dual structure and has become the subject of century old debate. Can we call the law those regulation and norms that illegitimate government brought? For the representatives of Positive belief, law represents system of rules that the state manages with efficiency, while Jusnaturalist have the opinion that these systems can’t be called legal in the full meaning of this word.

In jurisdictional theory and philosophy law isn’t defined only like a spiritual and ideal appearance, but like the real one. Real appearances have temporal and spatial dimension. For more possibilities hop over here. Like a real appearance law is connected with people and their psyche as well as with their society.

Most common trends in law practice are:

Jusnaturalism – which observes law like an ethical
Legalism and normativism – here law is set of norm like psychological and logically – linguistic terms.
Socialism – for those law is a social and material category.
Marxist writers see law as the will of the ruling class, with one goal, to maintain the ruling order.
All these viewpoints have one thing in common: to regulate relationships between humans in which it can occur the violation of public interest and mutual interest of each member of society. All these common interest have to stand in order by one, by others in peace and by thirds in justice.

How to be not so typical lawyer

How to be not so typical lawyer

Posted by on Jan 22, 2016 in Law |

When I’m talking about TV show How I met your mother with another fans, they always found to be a surprise when they hear that my favorite character is Marshall. Everyone loves more Barney,HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER Ted or Robyn, but I’m biggest Marshlal fan. Not just because he is funny, also because he stood up for a little man. He is environmental lawyer. Later in a series he became a judge, but for a while he fought for a greater cause. And that’s a thing that people forget when they start to practice a law. Making a difference in law, can be really good thing.

Like Marshall, you should be happy with your career choice. It is difficult to enjoy or be successful at a career that you do not enjoy. If you don’t enjoy your job, find a job that better suits you and that you can truly enjoy. In a show, he worked for some bank and he was not happy. Later when he realized that everything he wants in his life is to be a successful and to help to our planet to be greener, he became much fulfilled. And that’s a valuable SEGELlesson for all those young attorneys. They must remember that your prosperity is not always the mirror of your salary.

Sometimes, in order to make a significant difference, you charge a reduced fee. And earning 100,000k+ for every lawyer is not the guaranteed success. Many lawyers who work at offices, government offices, and other lower-paying positions are perfectly happy with their careers and make a huge difference in lives of other people. And who knows, that path can be a path to a much successful job. No one says that not working in a high powered firm must be a low paid job.

If you be patient and just sit tight and do your job properly then good things will come to you. You may as well later go solo and become your own boss. You can choose cases and clients and be a better man, not just lawyer.

So, be a better man, like Marshall.
