It Is Not From BJP That Tantri Should Seek Legal Advice: CM| Mathrubhumi News

It Is Not From BJP That Tantri Should Seek Legal Advice: CM| Mathrubhumi News

Kannur: It is not BJP from whom tantri should seek legal advice, said chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan. It is being said that tantri’s trust lies in BJP president. Tantri believing persons who are trying to create issues at Sabarimala is strange, CM added. Tantri has the right to seek legal advice. But there are administered persons for giving legal advice. It shouldn’t be from BJP. It is known tantri became part of the peculiar alliance formed during that situation, which should have never happened, Pinarayi alleged. Sreedharan Pillai has openly said that BJP was behind the violence in Sabarimala. They had implemented BJP’s strategy.

Popular Videos – Law & Legal advice

Rural places face a familiar set of obstacles when providing services. Large geographic distances present logistical obstacles, tax bases may be emaciated, and attitudes to the importance of legal services may differ. We present an analysis of data from the state of Texas showing that, consistent with the broad thesis that rurality is an obstacle, the extent to which criminal defendants are provided with representation indeed differs in rural counties. Yet not all rural places are the same. We examine the data on rural places specifically to try and answer the question: why is it that some rural places succeed in providing legal services while others do not?

National VLA Directory

Disclaimer: Consult an attorney licensed in your jurisdiction with specific questions.

Enlist the help of a Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts organization.
Some organizations provide pro-bono or low-cost legal services to artists who meet certain income requirements (i.e., you can’t utilize their pro-bono services if make above a certain amount of money). Most charge a nominal membership fee that includes access to legal and business services as well as workshops and other educational resources. Visit the National VLA Directory to see if there’s one close to you.

How to Find a VLA
There is no national organization for VLAs at this time but you can find a local directory of VLAs visit the website

How the Process of Engagement Works
Each VLA can operate a bit differently but there is almost always an initial intake or application process through their website. Nashville’s Volunteer Lawyers and Professionals for the Arts intake process just takes an email while others have an online form to fill out or a PDF to complete and send.

You will be asked to supply information such as:
what is your legal problem?
are any lawyers already a part of the issue?
what is your financial situation?

There will be a small intake fee (, , or something relatively small compared to the service you will get) to enroll in the service, but the actual advice and your time with the lawyer will be free.

There are often financial caps to consider, and each VLA is a bit different here so these are rough numbers, but if your annual income is more than ,000, if your music business is generating more than 0,000, or if the value of the deal at issue is more than 0,000, then there might be some cap that makes you ineligible for the VLA.

Once accepted you will be asked to sign some paperwork that formalizes your relationship with the VLA.

Check out a law school clinic.
Some law schools have clinics – mini law firms run by law students and supervised by faculty – that specialize in entertainment law. They operate similarly to Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts organizations. Check your local law school to see if this is an option, especially if you live in an entertainment hub like New York, Los Angeles, or Nashville. One caveat: do not hire a law student to do your legal work outside of a legal clinic setting. Law students aren’t licensed to practice law without proper supervision. Go through the legal clinic’s proper intake channels.

Contact a legal clinic for the arts
There are some nonprofit organizations that offer free or low-cost legal services to musicians. You can research online whether your state has such an organization and contact the organization to see if what they offer meets your legal needs. Some of the lawyers at these organizations are very competent attorneys who service high-level clients and enjoy volunteering their time to help independent musicians. Of course, others are newly licensed and may or may not be reputable. I cannot comment on the caliber of service you will be getting because it depends on which state you are in, the quality of the organization, and the attorney handling your case. However, if you want to work with someone on an ongoing basis throughout your matter and you can’t afford regular attorney’s fees, then this might be a good option for you to investigate.

Barter/negotiate with an attorney.
Attorneys know your plight as an artist or entrepreneur, especially if they specialize in the entertainment industry. You can always negotiate fees and payment plans. For instance, some attorneys will lower fees or accept payment after a contract is negotiated instead of an upfront fee. Just remember – attorneys like reviewing contracts for free about n not produce a return on a lawyer’s investment of time and skill.

Irish staff seek legal advice on coronavirus

Irish firms will have to start immediately planning for the fallout of the virus if it spread to become a pandemic, said HR Team director Breda Cullen.The confirmation of the first coronavirus case in Ireland by a woman in the North who had travelled from Italy had led to a huge surge in the numbers of concerned employees requesting advice, she said.

“The coronavirus outbreak has sparked a wave of concern around what rights employees have regarding sick leave and how employers should handle a situation should a staff member become infected,” Ms Cullen said.Any further spread of the virus in Ireland will raise further alarm.”Employers have been contacting us in increasing numbers in recent days to seek advice on how to best manage the situation to ensure their organisations and their people are safeguarded,” she said.”It is important at this time that employers have a robust contingency plan in place – one that is in line with employment legislation and is communicated clearly to all employees,” Ms Cullen said.
