Should Lawyers Keep Hands Off?

Hands off or hands on? That is the question for litigators and experts alike as to the lawyer's role in writing the expert's report.

The answers lawyers give to that question are anything but black-and-white. Rather, many trial lawyers see their role in the report as a matter of nuance, finessed through experience. Whereas the expert is skilled in a subject, they say, the lawyer is skilled in storytelling. The lawyer's job is to ensure that the expert's report conveys both the subject and the story.

"It is an art, I want to stress," says Michael J. Abernathy, chair of the Intellectual Property Department at Bell, Boyd & Lloyd, Chicago. "You have to be involved in this wit

Legal :: Canada Immigration Lawyers

There is no need for engaging any lawyer or consultant to immigrate to Canada or any other country. If you have the right credentials in accordance with the immigration policies of the country you want to immigrate to, along with the acceptable documents to support your claims, you do not need any lawyer to plead your case.

But immigration is not simple. The policies governing immigration are sometimes too complex to be easily understood by immigration seekers. Moreover, lawyers can present your case in a clear and concise manner according to the laws of the land. This can help your case to be decided more expeditiously.

The question of choosing the right lawyer to represent your case is important. Most of the law firms in Canada do not have immigration lawyers on their panels. Therefore you need to make special efforts to find a suitable one yourself.

The best course is to contact someone among your friends and relatives who has already been well served by a lawyer in his efforts to immigrate. You can also see the lawyers' advertisements in the newspapers and on the Internet.

Tall and misleading promises are sometimes made by lawyers who advertise themselves as immigration experts. There is no way you can verify their credentials. If you find the website of a lawyer, you should try to see whether that site gives substantive and value-added information to guide you.

Eminent lawyers have many prestigious publications on the special field of their practice. These publications usually provide sufficient insight into their credentials. So when you select a lawyer, ask for his published books or articles in the field of immigration.

Information about the capabilities of a lawyer can also be sought from the bar council or association of which he is the member. Some of the prominent immigration lawyers may be office bearers of the bar associations. These lawyers are recognized as authorities in their specific field.

Direct communication with the lawyer may also help a lot. You should not hesitate to ask for references of persons he claims to have helped successfully. You may also ask him his special qualifications and length of his experience.

You should always ask for a money-back guarantee and a detailed written contract so as to avoid future misunderstandings.

These Photos Prove Nelson Mandela's Legacy Thrives 26 Years After His Prison Release

On this day in 1990, massive crowds gathered throughout South Africa to celebrate the release of the nation's beloved Nelson Mandela.

It marked a momentous occasion and an even more significant moment for Mandela, a vocal and empowering leader who, because of these same traits, had been imprisoned for 27 years and was finally freed.

For nearly three decades, Mandela was removed from public contact and lived within the confines of various small, cement-covered cells after being convicted for conspiracy of overthrowing the government and speaking out against a racist regime that denied civil and human rights to black South Africans.

However, Mandela's legacy did not suffer

Nelson Mandela and Wife Graca Machel in Pictures

South Africa's first black president Nelson Mandela died at the age of 95 at his home in Johannesburg, South Africa on Thursday (December 5, 2013). The ex-boxer and lawyer had received intensive medical care at home for a lung infection after returning from the hospital five months ago. He passed away shortly before 21:00 local time (19:00 GMT) surrounded by close family. His death came months after he celebrated the 95th birthday on July 18.

Nelson Mandela, who appeared in public for the last time at the football World Cup in South Africa in 2010, was survived by his third wife Graca Machel. The anti-apartheid icon got married with the dedicated humanitarian on his 80th birthday in 1998. Graca Machel was the widow of Mozambican president Samora Machel. In 1975, she became the First Minister of Education in the country. She has also won a lot of awards for her humanitarian work, such as the Nansen Medal and the Laureate of Africa Prize for Leadership for the Sustainable End of Hunger.

Before wedding Graca Machel, Nelson Mandela tied the knot with Winnie Madikizela-Mandela in June 1958. The pair divorced in 1996 and have two daughters, Zindzi and Zenani. Previously, in 1944, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate married Evelyn Mase, the cousin of African National Congress (ANC) stalwart Walter Sisulu. The two have three children together.

Nelson Mandela passed away at his home in Johannesburg, South Africa on Thursday (December 5, 2013). He was survived by his wife Graca Machel, ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and three children, Makaziwe, Zindzi and Zenani.

South Africa gold miners to sue over silicosis

It's the sound of a man slowly dying.

His thin fingers trembling, Mothibedi leans over his simple hot plate and puts a tea kettle on the boil.

The 58-year-old former gold miner looks reduced in his old blue work shirt. It hangs off his bony shoulders as he spreads margarine on a slice of white bread for afternoon tea. He slowly sips it in his barren brick house near an old mine-dump.

"Just listen to my voice," he says, "I have problems with my lungs. I can't even walk fast or far. It is very hard for me."

Mothibedi is stricken with silicosis, an incurable lung condition that affects gold miners in southern Africa.

An incurable burden
