The Training And Skills You Need To Become A Legal Nurse Consultant

A Legal Nurse Consultant (LNC) is a registered nurse or RN that works as a contact between knowing medicine and understanding the law. They generally consult with attorneys and people who are involved in medical issues. They will have general knowledge in personal injury, workers’ compensation and wrongful termination cases.

Many RN’s work on medical malpractice law suits. Attorneys are not familiar with medical terms or how to read medical records like RN’s are; a LNC bridges the gap between the two.

Are Royal Assent, Pardons And Prorogation Fact Or Legal Fiction

Elizabeth II is the Head of State of the United Kingdom and fifteen other member states of the Commonwealth of Nations. These countries are constitutional monarchies, meaning that they operate under an essentially democratic constitution, the Queens principal role being to represent the state. Very often, she is viewed as a symbolic and apolitical personage with no real power. But is this entirely true? Does the Queen really possess purely nominal authority, or can she in fact exercise her will in any public action? This is not an easy question to answer. I will attempt to do so by focusing mainly on one of her most important theoretical prerogatives: the right to grant or deny royal assent to laws passed by Parliament.

A difficulty in judging the extent of the authority presently held by the monarchy lies in the fact that the British constitution has not been codified into one single document and much of it remains unwritten. The extensive power that the monarch once indisputably possessed, including the right to administer justice, dissolve Parliament or pardon crimes, was largely a matter of common law and not statute. What laws were codified (the Bill of Rights of 1689 and the Act of Settlement of 1701 standing among the most important) served more to restrict the Monarchs power than to entrench it. Thus, the residual powers still reserved to the Queen continue to be more a matter of constitutional convention than of written rules. Formally, no Act of the British Parliament becomes a proper law until it is given assent by the Queen. Yet in practice, Elizabeth II assents to all bills, irrespective of her opinion on them. The last time a British monarch rejected a law was in 1708, when Queen Anne vetoed the Scottish Militia Bill, and even then, she did so at the request of her ministers. Since then, the right of royal assent has fallen into disuse, leading some constitutional theorists to claim that a new convention obligating the monarch to assent to all bills has arisen. This view was famously stressed by Walter Bagehot in his 1867 volume The English Constitution:

…the Queen has no such veto. She must sign her own death-warrant if the two Houses unanimously send it up to her. It is a fiction of the past to ascribe to her legislative power. She has long ceased to have any.

Evolution of Online Music & New Legal Ways to download Music!

The Recording Industry Association of America ‘s bid to stamp out music piracy is paying off to some extent, with the launch of more pay-for-download music services and an effort by a couple of brainy college students to provide legal tunes to their classmates.

Though the lure of free music will continue to tempt many downloaders, the new legal services that are spouting up are worth watching as the e-music industry continues to take shape.

Napster , the service that single-handedly started the Internet music wars, is back this week, if in name only. Backed by Roxio , Napster will officially relaunch this week as a pay-for-play online service aimed at competing directly with Apple ‘s iTunes service and RealNetworks ‘s Rhapsody .

Legal Helpers Debt Resolution Did Not Help or Resolve Debts

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan said the consumer debt settlement firm Legal Helpers Debt Resolution LLC failed to live up to its name, instead acting as a -front- to collect hefty fees from desperate consumers. On July 27, 2012, the Chicago Tribune reported that Legal Helpers Debt Resolution agreed to a settlement in which it will refund $2.1 million to its Illinois customers.

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) assigned a rating of -F- to Legal Helpers Debt Resolution based on 213 complaints that have been closed with BBB in the last three years, 100 of which were closed in the last 12 months. Legal Helpers Debt Resolution has more than 2,000 clients in Illinois, meaning the $2.1 million settlement will provide an average of about $1,000 in restitution to customers. Many debt settlement firms take advantage of struggling consumers who are overwhelmed with credit card debt, but it is important for people to understand that credit card debt is considered -unsecured- and can often be discharged through a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Many debt settlement companies advertise themselves as being more effective alternatives to bankruptcy, when in fact, they collect larger fees without delivering any of the results.
