What are the legal barriers I should be aware of when trying to open a small business at 14?

I understand that because I am a minor, some things will have to go through my parent, and some things I can’t do at all. But finding information for what I can and can’t do as a minor is really difficult. I know I can purchase supplies myself in person with cash, the e-commerce website profits will have to go through my parent, and lead to their bank account. But are there any taxes I should be aware of? Do I have to declare myself formally as a small business to anyone, or declare myself as a minor? Anything else on the legal checklist?

Asking Questions to Prosecutors. Please answer all of them, thank you.

Prosecutors: Hello! My name is Jaydon and I am a current high school student. I'm conducting an interview with any professional in the Medical and Legal field for a Foundations in Health Science Class project about careers! I have created a total of 13 questions. Comment on this post, answering all 13 questions to be a part of my assignment. This set is to be designed for Prosecutors to answer. 1. Why was this the profession you choose? 2. How many years of college did you need to go through? 3. What jobs did you work before you landed your present professional job? 4. How can I decide if I should earn a PhD in this field? 5. Were you in a college program? If so what kinds? 7. Did you shadow another professional in the field? 8. Did you join any school clubs related to your current profession? 9. Was there a particular subject you struggled with during your school years? 10. What skill sets did you learn or gain while pursuing your career? 11. Can you outright refuse to be the Prosecutor for a court case if you have a reason as to why? 12. Does your job end up interrupting your vacation times and weekends? 13. Is the job dangerous or able to get you hurt?

What kind of law did you study/are you practicing, and why?

I am in my junior year of college and will be applying to law schools next year. I have no idea what law I want to do and I am concerned because I know I should at least narrow it down so that I can choose the law school that best matches me. #law #legal #lawyer #attorney #law-school #lawyers #law-school #lawyers #law-school

Can I become a paralegal with a criminal justice degree? Is a paralegal a stressful job? Can I work independently or is it best to land a position with an attorney?

Becoming a paralegal is something that I have thought deeply about and considered on more than one occasion. As I near the end of my schooling, I am wondering if this position is a as stressful as being a legal secretary (a position I previously held and despised! ) and if I will need to obtain more education before pursuing this career path. #legal #paralegal #criminal-justice
