Law school miseries, Kentucky gun laws, and more

by Admin on January 25, 2013

Thinking about law school? Think again.

How many law school graduates hate their jobs, hate law, or feel as if they’ll slowly disintegrate into a frustrated mush of flesh if they stay in the profession another year longer?

Apparently, quite a few.

Business Insider profiled a law school graduate so disgruntled with his job that he feels like a fraud. If he couldn’t care less about an important case, he’ll exert no effort into it. Well, that makes sense.

But he’s not alone. Many a law school student graduates and wants to move in the farthest direction possible from any law-related profession. Those who have gotten into it for the wrong reasons – money, parental or social influence, the title – are usually those who want to get out. Business Insider commonly delves into the minds of recent law school graduates, and the disenchantment they feel is almost universal.

So if you’re studying for the LSAT, think long and hard about whether law school is the right move. Really sleep on it. Consider the fact that blogs like this exist. 

Want to take a gun to a Kentucky zoo? Go for it.

A new state law in Kentucky allows you to openly carry a firearm in public areas. City-owned facilities like zoos, public parks, libraries, and city hall all fall under the law.

While we don’t think Kentucky is inferring that those are the sorts of places you would need a firearm most, and while we don’t doubt that at a zoo, if a macaque turns aggressive quick a firearm would be useful, the revision is an interesting case of state law superseding local law.

The rule is actually a revision to the state law, and is meant to clarify that firearms are to be regulated only by the state, voiding any local county law. A state statute still allows cities to ban people from carrying concealed firearms in their facilities. State Representative Bob Damron, a Democrat who sponsored the bill, said, “local governments can’t regulate firearms,” remarking that local governments have been varied and unclear about their laws regarding firearms.

The law becomes subject to enforcement this month, making a February trip to the zoo, and more specifically the macaque exhibits, slightly less treacherous.

The perils of marrying a gay man in China

An alarming statistic states that more than 10 million Chinese women are married to homosexual men, and 90% of Chinese homosexual or bisexual men get married.

More alarming than that might be the consequences Chinese women face as they try to end these marriages. Homosexuality in China is a controversial topic and not generally accepted by the public. In addition, Chinese judges find themselves in challenging positions when ruling on the highly sensitive cases.

For women in these scenarios, filing for divorce can be a difficult scenario. In Bangkok, divorce attorneys  are familiar with the topic, as homosexuality and transgenderism are largely accepted by the public.
