Law 1
 What is Law?

Law is a system of rules, usually enforced through a set of institutions, applied to govern a group. It shapes politics, economics and society in numerous ways.

Law is a code that regulates the behaviour of members of a society. It affects almost everything we do - buying a house, getting a job, making a will or getting divorced, for example.
Even something as simple as buying a bar of chocolate is covered by numerous laws:

  • the law of contract;
  • company law;
  • sale of goods, food and drugs legislation;
  • occupiers' liability;
  • trades' descriptions law!

So as you can imagine, lawyers have an important and diverse role in society.

 What is legal System for law?

Legal systems around the world can be split between civil law jurisdictions, on the one hand, and systems using common law and equity, on the other. The term civil law, referring to a legal system, should not be confused with civil law as a group of legal subjects, as distinguished from criminal law or public law. A third type of legal system — still accepted by some countries in part, or even in whole — is religious law, based on scriptures and interpretations thereof. The specific system that a country follows is often determined by its history, its connection with countries abroad, and its adherence to international standards. The sources that jurisdictions recognise as authoritatively binding are the defining features of legal systems.

 Classification of different systems for Law
There are the three main different classifications. These are
[1] Civil Law
[2] Common law and equity
[3] Religious law
 Why did you decide to attend law school?
  • Some employers may wonder why you have decided to switch careers and may fear that you are a career hopper in search of the ideal field for you.  If you have more than one graduate degree, employers may see you as a professional student.  Be prepared to answer with a concise explanation for your pursuit of a law degree and show confidence in your decision of such pursuit. 
  • This question is often asked of all students—not just second career students, so don’t treat it like an attack question.  Consider it an opportunity to tell your story.  Often second career students have chosen law school at great personal and financial sacrifice.  This is your opportunity to introduce yourself and share your story and your values beyond the information on your resume. 
  • Be careful not to complain or speak poorly of previous careers.
  • Make it clear that you are a team player, willing to take direction while learning to be a lawyer.

     Why are you enrolled in the Evening Program?

    Let the interviewer know that you are very serious about obtaining your degree, but have other obligations that preclude you from attending law school on a full-time basis.

     Why aren't you participating in law review or in more activities?

    * Most Evening Program students find that time constraints do not permit them to become involved in many extracurricular activities, especially during the first two years.
    * Many people in the legal profession believe that law review participation is an indication of strong writing skills. If you are not on law review, consider what past or current experiences you have had that have developed your writing ability.

     What in your prior education or work experience will benefit you in the practice of law? What do you plan to do with your expertise if you want to build on it?

    * Think of your prior education and experience as a basis on which law school builds. Explain that because of your past experiences you have abilities and qualities that others do not. Discuss how these skills can enhance your legal career.
    * If you have a specialty that you intend to combine with the practice of law, you must demonstrate your technical expertise, point to your accomplishments and describe your contacts in the field, while projecting your future ability to generate business. At the same time, you must make it clear that you are a team player who is willing to take direction while learning to be a lawyer.
    * If the interviewer's professional background is different from yours, explain your technical experience without being condescending.
    * Example: "Because of the nature of your business and my demonstrated experience doing _________, I would be an excellent addition to your firm because." Support the premise that you would be an excellent addition to the employer's business.
