Family Law – FindLaw

Just about anyone can start a family on their own, but certain procedures affecting the responsibilities of family life must be pursued in court. While matters of the heart are very personal, the rights of same-sex couples to get married, laws regarding divorce, and the process of adopting a child are governed by state and federal laws. “Family law,” therefore, refers to rules, regulations, and court procedures involving the family unit. While some family law matters may be handled without counsel, processes such as divorce and child custody often require the skill and expertise of a skilled attorney.

A Message to the St. John’s Law Community

Dear Alumni and Friends of St. John’s Law, 

The public health crisis in which we all find ourselves will test the mettle of every institution. For St. John’s Law, the immediate challenge was to transition quickly to a fully online educational program and to a fully remote work force. We held our last in-person class on Monday, March 9. By Wednesday, March 11, we had moved 140 classes taught by 39 full-time and 85 adjunct faculty members completely online. In just a few more days, the Law School’s Executive Staff made all of our operations—career development, student services, alumni relations, and more—fully remote.  

It was a tremendous display of teamwork, and I am enormously proud that we accomplished this transition so rapidly. I am also enormously grateful to the faculty and staff who have worked so hard to make it happen and

What Is The Law Of Attraction? And How To Use It Effectively

Simply put, the Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. It is believed that regardless of age, nationality or religious belief, we are all susceptible to the laws which govern the Universe, including the Law of Attraction. It is the Law of Attraction which uses the power of the mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materialize them into reality. In basic terms, all thoughts turn into things eventually. If you focus on negative doom and gloom you will remain under that cloud. If you focus on positive thoughts and have goals that you aim to achieve you will find a way to achieve them with massive action.

This is why the universe is such an infinitely beautiful place. The Law of Attraction dictates that whatever can be imagined and held in the mind’s eye is achievable if

The Law | Mises Institute

How is it that the law enforcer itself does not have to keep the law? How is it that the law permits the state to lawfully engage in actions which, if undertaken by individuals, would land them in jail?

These are among the most intriguing issues in political and economic philosophy. More specifically, the problem of law that itself violates law is an insurmountable conundrum of all statist philosophies.

The problem has never been discussed so profoundly and passionately as in this essay by Frederic Bastiat from 1850. The essay might have been written today. It applies in ever way to our own time, which is precisely why so many people credit this one essay for showing them the light of liberty.

Bastiat’s essay here is timeless because applies whenever and wherever the state assumes unto itself different rules and different laws from that by which it expects other people

Moore’s Law Definition

What Is Moore’s Law?

Moore’s Law refers to Moore’s perception that the number of transistors on a microchip doubles every two years, though the cost of computers is halved. Moore’s Law states that we can expect the speed and capability of our computers to increase every couple of years, and we will pay less for them. Another tenet of Moore’s Law asserts that this growth is exponential.

Understanding Moore’s Law

In 1965, Gordon E. Moore—co-founder of Intel (NASDAQ: INTC)—postulated that the number of transistors that can be packed into a given unit of space will double about every two years. Today, however, the doubling of installed transistors on silicon chips occurs closer to every 18 months instead of every two years.

Background

Gordon Moore did not call his observation “Moore’s Law,” nor did he set out to create a “law.” Moore made that statement based on noticing emerging trends in
