Any Law Experts Out There?

Are you a lawyer? Law school student? Pre-law student?

Do you like to write about church/state separation issues? (Are you good at it?)

If so, contact me. I could use your help…

    I’m a lawyer, but not with sufficient time or expertise to write for this blog. However, I implore you, DO NOT use a law student or pre-law student for this purpose. Hold off until you find a qualified lawyer. Please.

    Sorry for cribbing your post, me, but it said everything I wanted to. Just had to make a little change.

    I don’t get it. How can you be an atheist AND a lawyer, since you don’t have a soul you can sell…

    They end up as public defenders. ;)

    I know all about the laws, I’ve broken most of them.

    I’m a lawyer and I’m not sure why a law student wouldn’t be fine, depending on your purpose. For one, they have time. Two, they have free access to legal research databases. Three, since my practice has nothing to do with church and state, I probably knew more about constitutional issues as a student than I can remember now.

    As long as a law student understands basic law, why not have him write here?

    1) Establishment and Free Exercise jurisprudence is under debate all the time. A law student, IMO, as as much a part of the legal community as anybody else. As long as he isn’t dispensing legal advice, why shouldn’t he write in a public forum? Moreover, anybody who’s suffered through the socratic method knows that you learn the law through discussion with other legal professionals.

    2) I fail to see how a law student would offer opinions any less valid than the average sectarian or secular-oriented lawyer with an ideological axe to grind.

    I forgot point 3:

    3) The law on gov’t and religion is a tangled mess. The Lemon test is subjective as hell and inconsistently applied.

    Did someone catch you killing and eating babies Hemant? *Sigh* looks like we’ll have to start a “Hemant’s Legal Defense Fund”.
