Answer . Your brain. No equipment is required, but a computer with a good word processing program and access to a legal case law data base is extremely helpful, as is a phone.
Bilingualism means that there is more than one official language for example Canada has English as a fist language and French as a second language. An individual can be bilingual by having some degree of fluency in two languages. People can be fluent or nearly so in the standard spoken form of a l…anguage while having less skill in reading or writing it. The kind of fluency here does not necessarily involve knowledge and ease of use of the many specialized vocabularies that any language has that deal with medical, scientific and other fields. (MORE)

There are about 1.3 million lawyers in the US, and the number is growing faster than the total population. It is possible to extend the growth statistic into the future and estimate lawyer population and its percentage of the US population. Thus we could estimate the date at which half the populatio…n are lawyers, or even we will all be lawyers. Our law schools are presently experiencing a huge increase in enrollments. If the lawyer population grows at its current 9 percent growth rate, compounded annually, then we will double the current lawyer population in eight years (2019) to 2.6 million lawyers. At that same rate, it will double again in 2027 and again in 2035. That is, we will have 10.4 million lawyers in 2035. A few more cycles like that and by the year 2091, we there will be 681.2 million lawyers in the US--which means that every American over the age of 25 will then be a lawyer. Aren't statistics amazing? (MORE)
Probably most of them use it on a personal basis. Some may even look at it for reference when working. However, it would never be referenced in any sort of legal proceeding.
Yes, some lawyers do use algebra. It usually depends on what theyare trying to figure out financially and statistically.
No! More and more places are looking for people who speak more than one language to work for them. The world is becoming smaller by the day, where it becomes necessary to communicate with people from other countries in order to do business. While it's probably more important to speak decent English,… having proficiency in that and something else would be very useful. Answer: I think the first person missed your point, or maybe I did. If you mean bad for the USA, I would say yes. It takes more people to deal with each language, increases costs. In schools children that cannot understand English cause the towns to need more teachers to take care of the non-English speaks, this causes the over-all costs to go up everywhere. This answer has nothing to do with anything other than an economic answer. I have nothing against non-English speakers my family when they came to the USA could not speak English either, but years ago, you had to learn English. (MORE)

The total pay of a military officer (lawyers are commissioned officers) can be complicated because it is based on several variables depending on the type of pay; grade (rank), years of service, career field, location, even status of dependency (married and/or with children or other dependents).. Mi…litary pay is divided into Basic Pay, Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) or Overseas Housing Allowance (OHA), Basic Allowance for Subsistence (BAS), Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) and Incentive & Special pays.. -- Basic pay is based on grade and years of service and is identical for any officer with the same grade/years regardless of career field. -- BAH & OHA is based on grade, location & dependency and is higher for locations with higher cost of living. -- BAS is a set rate for all officers ($223.04/mo in 2009). -- COLA is not paid at all locations, but is based on grade, years of service, location and dependency. -- Incentive & special pays are for certain career fields such as aviators and health professionals and vary depending on the specialty.. Some career fields also offer continuation pays in the form of bonuses. This means that you may be offered continuation pay if you agree to serve additional time beyond your original committment. These bonus payments fluctuate annually based on the supply/demand of career fields.. An additional factor to consider if comparing military and civilian pay is the tax incentives for some military pay. For example BAH, OHA, BAS are all non-taxable.. Pay for all military personnel is public information if you know the variables mentioned in the first paragraph and can be viewed anytime at the following websites:.

Scientific evidence is commonly used in trials. The type of science and how it is used varies greatly by the type of case. For example, a personal injury case arising from an auto accident may rely on scientific evidence to prove the speed and direction of travel of the vehicles. Criminal or famil…y law cases may rely on DNA evidence. It goes on and on. In particularly technical areas, attorneys may rely on experts to present the scientific particulars. (MORE)

None. The US Supreme Court hears most cases under appellate jurisdiction, and does not listen to witness testimony. In fact, appellate courts may not retry cases, but must accept the factual determination of the lower court and/or trial jury. The US Supreme Court's role in the appellate process i…s to determine whether the petitioner/plaintiff's constitutional rights were violated by a law or the legal process, not to determine a defendant's guilt or innocence.

No; it was in the German language. The first kindergarten in the United States seems to have been one in Watertown, Wisconsin, in 1856. It was conducted in German because the founder of the "kindergarten movement," Friedrich Froebel, was from Germany and the first women he trained to teach kindergar…ten also spoke German (including Margarethe Meyer-Shurz, a German woman who came to America and began the kindergarten class in Wisconsin). The first English-language kindergarten was operated in Boston, beginning in 1860, by Elizabeth Peabody. (MORE)

It depends. If you are INJURED in an accident, then yes, you will want an attorney to represent you. If you are not injured but have property damage (such as to a car), you likely will not need the services of an attorney unless you are disputing liability. Your insurance company will guide you thro…ugh the damage claim process for auto accidents. In other words, whether or not you need a lawyer depends on if you are injured and what type of an accident is involved. (MORE)
A retainer fee basically "retains" the lawyer's services.

It may be a fee the lawyer charges in order to be avail…able (which may mean that they have to turn down other clients; since doing so represents a loss of business for them, it's reasonable for them to expect to be compensated for this), or it may be a kind of "down payment" on future services.

There are a huge amount of ways they could use them. Like any business people, they could use them for doing some general accounts. They could use them to keep data on some of their clients.

Excel can be interlinked with other applications, so a lot of what they use the other applications for will be linked to Excel.

They could use statistical analysis for cases they've won or types of cases they take. (MORE)
