Republicans Challenge Admin’s Power To Delay Healthcare Law Provision – Wake Up America!
Question by katie: Can I practice healthcare law and then become a judge?
I had a question about the path to becoming a judge. I am currently a senior in college and have applied to law school hoping to work in the Oklahoma/Texas area. I have already been accepted to Baylor, Tulsa, and OCU and am still waiting to hear back from OU, Houston, and SMU (sent my applications in December 6). I would like to practice healthcare law either for the government or as in-house counsel for a company and was wondering if this was a viable career path to one day sit as a judge when I am in my 40s or even late 30s if the opportunity arises? I know a more traditional career path would to become a state or federal prosecutor and then apply for a judgeship, and while this is also something I could see myself enjoying doing, I like the idea of the former career opportunity better. So I guess what I’m asking is, what is the likelihood of me practicing healthcare law and then being able to apply/be considered/nominated for a judgeship when I’m older? Should I focus on a different area of law if that is my ultimate goal? Also, assuming that I get into the other schools I have listed, (SMU might be a stretch, my LSAT was a 160 with a GPA of 3.6) do you think it would be more beneficial to attend school in my homestate of Oklahoma (OU offers cheap tuition, although I’ve been offered a full ride at OCU and 27k a year at Tulsa and I have connections in OKC) or to attend Baylor (strong trial advocacy program) or Houston (strong health law program). I have also toyed around with the idea of applying for a JD/MPH degree, what do you think would be the usefulness of the two degrees? I would appreciate any feedback! Unless you’re feedback is to avoid going to law school, my heart is set on it and no yahoo comment is going to change my mind I’m aware of the terrible legal market and I am up for the challenge! My parents are also prominent attorneys in the OKC area so I have the benefit of connections, which I know is not a guarantee of a job, but can’t hurt! I am not going to law school for the money, but for the true desire to help people and be fulfilled by an intellectually stimulating career! Advice please!
Just to be clear, I am referring to any type of judgeship, not just state and federal. My mother was an administrative law judge for a couple of years when I was a baby in her late 20s and that sounded very interesting and also something I would like to pursue if the other options didn’t arise.
Also, my parents are paying for law school. I will have no debt.

Your record on scholarly attributes in the conduct of your legal practice will be the major consideration in becoming a judge, and cultivating political links.
After all, most of the Bush Supreme Court appointees were corporate law attorneys. And that didn’t stop them from getting the appointment.
I can’t comment on your path forward, however.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
The National Hispanic Council on Aging (NHCOA) the leading national organization working to improve the lives of Hispanic older adults, their families, and caregivers has been working across states to raise awareness and empower Latino workers and older adults to advocate for leaves that pay laws at the local and state level. Leaves that pay policies are the best way to ensure that workers dont have to choose between their family and their job. Job security and steady wages are crucial for the Hispanic community as many workers are also caregivers and heads of households.
With the flu season underway, it is likely that workers without paid sick days are going to work ill. This creates a toll on the individuals health, but also makes possible the spread of the illness to those in the work or family environment. Similarly, there are also workers who do have leaves that pay, but dont use it when they are sick because they are unaware of the benefit.
The Leaves That Pay initiative is more than good public health policy, its common sense, said Dr. Yanira Cruz, NHCOA President and CEO. When workers can stay home to take care of themselves or a loved one while earning wages, both individuals and the health care system are better off in the long run. Leaves that pay enable workers to avoid spreading illnesses, and to manage minor health problems before they become serious or chronic.
That is why NHCOA has been working to raise awareness among Latino workers in California, which has leaves that pay laws in place. While these workers are the ones who need leaves that pay the most, they are the least likely to use it in the event of an illness. In fact, according to a 2011 study by Eileen Appelbaum and Ruth Milkman only 34% of Hispanic Californians were aware these laws existed. Likewise, NHCOA has been working with advocates in New York City to bring a leaves that pay bill, which was introduced more than a year ago, to vote in the City Council. As the initiative expands, NHCOA hopes to empower Latino communities in Southern Florida to advocate for a similar law, and to expand an existing worker disability law in New Jersey.
NHCOAs Leaves That Pays initiative is sponsored by the Ford Foundation. For more information, visit http://www.nhcoa.org.
