Organizational Behavior in Law Firms Essay

Introduction The current practice of organization, governance and compensation in law firms does not match that of other business firms. Managers apply managerial approach rather than coordinated team management. Lawyers want to preserve their autonomy, and they are professional skeptics. During their training, lawyers learn to be pessimistic. They also aim at spotting flaws. When it comes to employee compensation, lawyers do not trust the compensation committees. They insist on having a system that does not trust other people. Lack of trust leads to several negative consequences and these can be observed in several law firms. For example, teamwork initiatives rarely are implemented. A joint plan can be developed, but…

?Should the Law be changed?

The former Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau, managed to leave a mark on the Canadians by questioning the Canadian Law system. He argued that the law shouldn’t interfere with what happens in the bedrooms of the nation. Trudeau also contemplated whether or not there should be a significant difference between sin and crime in Canadian Law. Pierre Trudeau’s belief to change the law is morally right because the main purpose of law is to provide safety and justice, the law system should change according to human values and the law should not be influenced by religion. Throughout history, the law’s purpose is to provide safety and order in society. Trudeau’s quote…

Contract Law Case Study

The case under discussion has all the hallmarks of a contract law dispute. The present paper demonstrates the reasons as to why the defendant’s motion on the case should be overruled. More importantly, it shows why the plaintiff should be compensated as requested for wrongful termination of services. As the judge in the case, I would rule in favor of the plaintiff and oblige the defendant to pay for the damages as requested. Available literature on such cases argue that there can be oral manifestations of assent in a contract (Barmes 437; Wilkinson-Ryan 2110), and that such oral manifestations mean that parties to a contract communicated to each other about…

Man Against Nature’s law in The Scarlet Letter

In The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne demonstrates the need for humans to abide by the laws of nature and conscience, rather than the laws of man, to achieve happiness. The laws of nature, enforced only by the human conscience, govern every individual. Humans learn these laws by experiencing and interacting directly with nature. When left alone on the beach, Pearl pelts small birds with pebbles for amusement. However, when she injures one “she [grieves] to have done harm to a little being that was as wild as the sea breeze” (160). Pearl learns an important lesson about right and wrong by using nature and her own conscience. The remorse she…

United States Imigration Law

US immigration law is arguably the most complex in the World with fifty-three different types of non-immigrant visas and a number of ways of gaining permanent residence (the “Green Card”). For many people it is a difficult and lengthy process gaining a “Green Card” on an initial basis. It is frequently far better to apply for one of the non-immigrant visas and then apply for an adjustment of status to “lawful permanent residence”. I do not propose to cover every conceivable type of visa available but to try and cover the more common types. ————————————————————————WORK RELATED NON-IMMIGRANT VISASThe H Non-Immigrant VisasThere is the H-1B visa for a “specialty occupation” as…

Roman Law (4556 words)

Roman LawThe Romans have had almost every type of government there is. They’ve had a kingdom, a republic, a dictatorship, and an empire. Their democracy would be the basis for most modern democracies. The people have always been involved with and loved their government, no matter what kind it was. They loved being involved in the government, and making decisions concerning everyone. In general, the Romans were very power-hungry. This might be explained by the myth that they aredescended from Romulus, who’s father was Mars, the god of war. Their government loving tendencies have caused many, many civil wars.

Legal advice to Bob regarding Jon’s Pay (Word Count 427) Typically, the creation of contract involves three fundamental elements; the agreement, contractual intention, and consideration. Based on this scenario it is possible to say that Bob and Jon reached an agreement when he made an offer to Jon who in turn accepted it. Furthermore, the existence of a consideration made it look more contractual and therefore more binding. However, in spite of the agreement and consideration, there seems to be a deficiency with this contract which makes it less binding. Since the contractual intention is key in establishing legally binding agreement there is no evidence that Bob intended this agreement.…

Man Against Nature’s law in The Scarlet Letter

In The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne demonstrates the need for humans to abide by the laws of nature and conscience, rather than the laws of man, to achieve happiness. The laws of nature, enforced only by the human conscience, govern every individual. Humans learn these laws by experiencing and interacting directly with nature. When left alone on the beach, Pearl pelts small birds with pebbles for amusement. However, when she injures one “she [grieves] to have done harm to a little being that was as wild as the sea breeze” (160). Pearl learns an important lesson about right and wrong by using nature and her own conscience. The remorse she…

United States Imigration Law

US immigration law is arguably the most complex in the World with fifty-three different types of non-immigrant visas and a number of ways of gaining permanent residence (the “Green Card”). For many people it is a difficult and lengthy process gaining a “Green Card” on an initial basis. It is frequently far better to apply for one of the non-immigrant visas and then apply for an adjustment of status to “lawful permanent residence”.

Roman Law (4556 words)

Roman LawThe Romans have had almost every type of government there is. They’ve had a kingdom, a republic, a dictatorship, and an empire. Their democracy would be the basis for most modern democracies. The people have always been involved with and loved their government, no matter what kind it was. They loved being involved in the government, and making decisions concerning everyone. In general, the Romans were very power-hungry. This might be explained by the myth that they aredescended from Romulus, who’s father was Mars, the god of war. Their government loving tendencies have caused many, many civil wars. After any type of government, the change has been made with…

Legal advice to Bob regarding Jon’s Pay (Word Count 427) Typically, the creation of contract involves three fundamental elements; the agreement, contractual intention, and consideration. Based on this scenario it is possible to say that Bob and Jon reached an agreement when he made an offer to Jon who in turn accepted it. Furthermore, the existence of a consideration made it look more contractual and therefore more binding. However, in spite of the agreement and consideration, there seems to be a deficiency with this contract which makes it less binding. Since the contractual intention is key in establishing legally binding agreement there is no evidence that Bob intended this agreement.…

Mississippi law history

On January 8, the US Supreme Court refused to review two cases challenging a Mississippi law that would permit businesses and government employees to deny services to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual And Transgender (LGBT) people to safeguard a persons’ sincerely held religious beliefs and moral convictions. The bill, entitled “Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination”, was passed in the Mississippi legislature in 2016.

Natural Law by Thomas Aquinas: An Examination

Explain Aquinas’ Natural Law theory Thomas Aquinas was a 13th century monk who studied Aristotle’s philosophy. He developed his Natural Law from these studies. Natural law is an absolute, deontological theory which states that morals are issued by God to nature. It includes 5 primary precepts of which Aquinas believed were the basis of living a moral life. The Natural Law, as applied to the case of human beings, requires greater precision because of the fact that we have reason and free will.

The conflict between law and ethics can be seen during Hazel Motes interaction with the police officer and the non-ethical origins of laws can be seen within the bathroom Motes uses after stepping off the train.

Organizational Behavior in Law Firms Essay

Introduction The current practice of organization, governance and compensation in law firms does not match that of other business firms. Managers apply managerial approach rather than coordinated team management. Lawyers want to preserve their autonomy, and they are professional skeptics. During their training, lawyers learn to be pessimistic. They also aim at spotting flaws. When it comes to employee compensation, lawyers do not trust the compensation committees. They insist on having a system that does not trust other people. Lack of trust leads to several negative consequences and these can be observed in several law firms. For example, teamwork initiatives rarely are implemented. A joint plan can be developed, but…

?Should the Law be changed?

The former Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau, managed to leave a mark on the Canadians by questioning the Canadian Law system. He argued that the law shouldn’t interfere with what happens in the bedrooms of the nation. Trudeau also contemplated whether or not there should be a significant difference between sin and crime in Canadian Law. Pierre Trudeau’s belief to change the law is morally right because the main purpose of law is to provide safety and justice, the law system should change according to human values and the law should not be influenced by religion. Throughout history, the law’s purpose is to provide safety and order in society. Trudeau’s quote…
