Farm Lawyer Please Advise

Postby jusacountrylawyer » Sun Dec 09, 2012 4:59 am

Hello. I am interested in practicing in the legal industry. Principally, I am interested in the areas of horse law and agriculuture law. Also, I am interested in criminal law because I have been victimized by bandits several time out of my grain bins in the last 6 months. Please can you recommend a law school with a strong horse/crime program? I have taken 1 practice LSAT and received a 174. Principally I would like to maintain my farm (principally alfalfa and soy) while maintaining a profitable law practice. Please advise.

The legal world is a scary place for us down home country types. People round these parts only seem to want to be one of the Brooks brothers and such.

Hello. I am looking for serious advice please. Do many law students principally wear overalls? Also, what is the legal sector in terms of agricultural/horse law?

Overalls are essential. The key is you can only use one of the buttons not both. Don't forget a cowboy hat too. The bigger the better. Otherwise people will know you're not a true law student.

Because every good country lawyer takes a dip with his clients to get their trust. If you are really good you will get them to drink some Turkey with you as well. Its all billable.

Can you please explain the term "billable"? I do not usually use alcohol, but I can make an exception for business (hehe). However I am more of a fan of your "white lightning." I distrust liquor that is made by the US goverment.

A billable hour is when you are working. Called billable since it is tradition to take your hat off when you are dealing with client matters (hat bill).

This has got to be a flame, but in the interest of being nice and playing along...

I would recommend University of Kentucky - the school is strong in veterinary work, agricultural sciences, and is close to many of the big racing barns, so the law school seems to draw from that. Their equine law program is the best in the country.

The overalls question, horse law question, and white lightning comment gave it away.
