To the Commanding Officer of NAVSCOLEOD:
During my time in NAVSCOLEOD I learned significant things about myself in the past 7 months and the direction I would like my military career to take. In the words of Colin Powell he describes success as, “the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” I believe that this is a main key of completing EOD School. While I was deciding what MOS to choose before I committed to the Army, my recruiter informed me about the EOD program. I did my research on it and I found out it was one of the most difficult schools to get through in the Military and it provided a high sense of comradery within the EOD community itself. This is what I have been looking for in a profession, challenges on a daily basis and a good group of people to work with. I got a gist of what EOD was going to be like at the preliminary course at Fort Lee. After I completed this course I was fully committed to the EOD program and I was sure this is going to be a long term career. Going through NAVSCOLEOD showed me that it wasn’t only the challenges and the difficulty that drawn me to this program but it was the caliber of soldiers this program produced and a possibility of working with them. The students here are held to high standards on a daily basis and are not satisfied with just doing what is just enough.
This school has tested me in ways that I have not been tested in the past. Prior to joining the military I was never nervous of taking any test or engage in any difficult task. However, I have been tested both physically/mentally during my experience here and I have tackled every problem and tried my best to overcome and adapt to each situation. I recognize that during the IED division that I did not meet the requirements to get through this division. However, in order for some of us to succeed we must fail and learn from our…...

...not binding even if they are benefi cial (Cowern v Nield (1912)). The traditional justifi cation is that ‘the law will not suffer him to trade, which may be his undoing’ (Whywall v Campion (1738)). As Treitel explains (at 545), ‘A minor who trades thereby necessarily risks his capital. If he exercises some profession or calling he may incur expense, but putting his capital at risk is not of the essence of the matter.’ In contrast with the uncertain enforceability at common law of executory contracts for the supply of necessary goods (see W1.1.1 (iii)), executory contracts for the supply of necessary services in the nature of apprenticeships or of education are enforceable against the child. In Roberts v Gray (1913), the Court of Appeal found a child liable to pay damages when he failed to perform a contract to go on tour with a professional billiard player. This is inconsistent with the view that the child’s liability is restitutionary rather than contractual. W1.1.3 Contracts involving land, marriage settlements, company shares, and partnerships There are four instances where a child who contracts for an interest in a subject matter of a permanent nature will be bound, unless he repudiates it before or within a reasonable time of attaining majority. This is the position even if the child does not know of his right to repudiate (Edwards v Carter (1893)). They are contracts: (i) to buy or lease land; (ii) for marriage settlements; (iii) to buy shares in a......

Appeals

...An appeal is a petition for reconsideration of a legal action that has been determined by a court of law, in which a sentenced defendant is requesting for a higher court to examine the case that a lower court decided on. An appellate court is the court that hears and see’s the cases on appeals and make a decision to see if the appeal will be approved or not. After the appeal is accepted it goes to a new trial and they review the case on record to make sure that the findings were truthful and in accordance to the law. It can also be concluded that an inaccuracy in trial transpired and can be referred back for a new trial. I believe if the appeals were eliminated from the system we would have a great deal of individuals in prison or sentenced to death that did not need to be there and were wrongly accused at times. And there would be a lot of people in prison that are mistakenly accused. Because of the advancement of technology in the this day and age has improved drastically and because of this advancement we can do more with evidence and DNA that were not capable of revealing before this new technology and too me this has made the appeal process even more necessary and so do eliminate the appeal process now would definitely hurt our criminal justice system because these individuals would have no second chance to prove that they are innocent....

Appeals Process

...An appeal is a proceeding where a ruling from a lower court is reviewed by a higher court in an attempt to convince the higher court that the lower courts judgment was incorrect. Appeals are an important part of the criminal justice process. Appeals are part of the system of checks and balances. They are important because they ensure that defendants have received due process in the prior stages of the criminal justice process and it ensures that none of their civil rights were violated. They are also important because the law is often unspecific to certain legal guidelines. When society and technology change law often stays the same. It is through appeals where the law changes and adapts to society. Appellate Court decisions in one jurisdiction can act as a guideline for other jurisdictions that need to make rulings on similar cases. All appellate rulings also affect law enforcement agencies as they must also adapt to the change of the law. The appeals process begins with a conviction in trial court. After that it must follow the ladder of being appealed starting with the state appellate court. Following the state court and if there is a constitutional matter or federal law matter it will then be reviewed by the federal appellate court. Should the appeal process need to go further up the ladder it will reach the highest court the United States Supreme Court who would make the final ruling. Not every case can be appealed. You can not appeal a case solely because you think you...

...Appeals Process Nikole Robinson Criminal Justice and Security (CJS)/220 February 9, 2014 Tony Sanders Appeals Process According to University of Phoenix Appeals (2003), an appeal is a proceeding in which a case is brought before a higher court for review of a lower court’s judgment for the purpose of convincing the higher court that the lower court’s judgment was incorrect. An appeal is done when a defendant’s attorney tries to get him/her a lighter sentence in exchange for something in return, for instance a guilty plea. This is the defendant’s way of trying to get a lighter sentence for the crime he/she has committed. Appeals are important because they are one of the principal avenues in which legal issues, such as law are shaped. Often an appellate decision in one jurisdiction is a source of guidance to courts in other jurisdictions. The first step to appeal is to file a notice of appeal within a specific amount of time after the conviction. Next the appellate files the trial court record and all documents supporting the appeal to the appellate court. Then the appellant and appellee each file briefs, basic facts of the case and the argument made by that particular party. After the briefs are filed the judge may want to hear a short oral argument from each party in the case and finally the court will issue a decision which will be given with a written opinion describing the reasoning for the decision. The appeals factor into the overall criminal......

In the criminal court this would be the losing party appealing the court decision federal appeals court. In a criminal case either side may appeal the verdict in respect to the sentence that is imposed after a guilty verdict. In a civil case either side may appeal the verdict. This process allows someone to have their case seen by another higher court system in hopes of having the verdict overturned. The process may be long and the litigant has to show that the trial court made an error that affected the verdict in the case. The three used in the criminal justice system can include, direct appeal, discretionary appeal and interlocutory appeal. There are step by step actions by the appeals court including: transcript request, file briefing, official consideration and the decision. These steps can be considered the motion of discovery.

Advertising Appeals

...What is an Advertising Appeal? An advertising appeal refers to the approach used to attract the attention of consumers and/or to influence their feelings toward the product, service, or cause. It's something that moves people, speaks to their wants or need, and excites their interest. Often it is the underlying content of the advertisement; think of it as a “movie script”. Don’t confuse this with executional framework, that will be another topic. When y'all are deciding on a direction for your submissions, review the Creative Brief (specifically objectives section) for tone, the nature of the product, the preferences of the client (very important). Most importantly though, use your common sense and gut feelings. There are two major types of appeals. They are: Emotional Rational Emotional Appeal 67advertising messages, usually based on imagery rather than information, which attempt to achieve the advertiser's objectives by evoking strong emotionsl feelings (fear, anger, passion, etc) rather than by a rational appeal. This relates to the customers’ social and/or psychological needs for purchasing a product or service. This appeal is so effective because many consumers’ motives for purchase decisions are emotional. Many advertisers believe an emotional appeal to work better at selling brands that do not differ markedly from competing brands.

Appeals Processing

...Appeals Process Paper Patricia Velez University Of Phoenix Punishment Philosophies An appeal is an application or request made by a losing party in a court case to a higher court seeking a reversal of a lower court’s ruling in the case. In trials by federal courts, the losing party is entitled to a chance to make a plea to the court of appeal, whereby either party may be against the decision in a civil case while only the defendant has the chance to make a petition whereby a criminal case is concerned. Most appeal cases are picked for a session of oral arguments by both parties before the court. This oral claim takes the form of a structured discussion conducted between appellate lawyers and judges of the court focusing on legal principles involved in the dispute. Ideally, both sides are allocated a small amount of time during which they present their opinions before the court. In most circumstances, appeals are final, and the decision made by the court of appeals ate taken as the final word except when it refers the case back to trial courts or whereby the Supreme Court is involved (Barendrecht, Bolt, & Hoon, 2010). Appeals factor in criminal procedures and overall trial processes in different ways depending on the structure and principals of the legal system involved. Ideally, the appeal process is upheld for its benefits for the conflicting parties, the system of public justice, as well as the future users of...

...TO: FROM: DATE: September 19, 2012 SUBJECT: Academic Appeal – Letter of Explanation To Whom It May Concern, I am writing this letter to appeal to you for reconsideration of my academic suspension and request another opportunity to complete my Master’s in Network and Communications Management at Keller Graduate School of Management. In addition, I am also writing this letter in an attempt to appeal my academic probation so that I may be permitted to receive financial aid towards the continuance of my college education. My last completed course at Keller was not a good one; during this class, I experienced a death in the family that took a heavy toll. This required me to travel back and forth from Georgia to Louisiana to not only help with burial plans as well as bury a loved one, but also to help settle some of the personal affairs of that same loved one.  These circumstances undoubtedly contributed greatly towards my focus shifting from education to settling family business.  A few months later, I experienced another death which happened to be that of a close friend. His death came as a shock being that he was diagnosed with cancer one month, the cancer rapidly spread, and his doctor gave him thirty days to live. Respectfully, the doctor was almost exactly right; my friend made it to thirty-six days. These two experiences coupled with my company downsizing at that time as well my regular family responsibilities created a test of fortitude during a......

Court of Appeals

...Court of Appeals An appeal is entitled to an individual (defendant) who has been found to be guilty by the court for some of all of the charges put against him or her. This person can appeal one or more levels of the appellate court. An appeal can occur in several levels of the courts. An example of this is the appealing to the circuit court of appeals first then going up to the next level. This process can continue until it has reached the United States Supreme Court. An appeal is known as a formal letter of request in which a highest court must review the decisions that had been made by a lower court. Usually the defendant in a lower court who had been found to be guilty of a crime will make an appeal. Some reasons that an appeal maybe made is insufficient evidence, how the jury handled the case, any violation of rights or the possibility of a mistake that was made by the judge hearing the case. An appeal can influence the processes and procedures of a court if the guilty defendant’s appeal has been won over by the higher courts. The entire trial will have to be examined at the beginning in detail, looking for any errors that may exist and had a factor in the ending verdict of that case. After this long drawn out process has ended and a winning of an appeal has occurred then some cases maybe completely retried. Sometimes an appellate court may decide that some of the elements of the case that has been reexamined, shouldn’t have even been within the trial at...

There are many cases were innocent offenders have being send to prison to pay for a crime they have never commit. The offender has the option to fight for his or her innocents by filling a claim to the state that his or her case was not processed correctly by the lower court system during his or her trial or arrest.

...| APPEALS PROCESS | Describing the appeals process | | Ashlee Flemimg | 2/12/2012 | Abstract An appeal in the criminal law system is a defendant’s way of challenging the court’s decision. In this paper I will discuss what an appeal is, how it factors into the overall procedures and process of the criminal system. How the appeals process may be improved. Steps in the appeals process and an example case of an appeal. And why the example case appeal did or did not succeed. Introduction A defendant can challenge is conviction by filling an appeal to have the conviction overturned. The first appeal filed in most cases in the Federal System and most State Court systems is an appeal of the Statutory Right. If they lose the appeals under the statutory right they may then appeal to the State Supreme Court or the U.S. Supreme Court. But in most cases a defendant does not have the right to file such an appeal. The Supreme Court must agree to hear the defendant’s case. But defendant needs to remember that an Appeals Court is not automatically required to review a case. What is an appeal? An appeal is a petition to a higher court for review of a case that has already been decided by a lower court of law. The petition is made for the purpose of having the lower court’s decision overturned. How do appeals factor into the overall criminal procedures and processes?
