EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES cont'd ana a general description of tne nat- ure of work tne agency is engaged in. Most agencies start young attorneys witn no legal experience at the level of GS-7 wnich pays $6,500 a year. Ad- vancement is fairly rapid in tne early years, and continuing cost-of-living increases can ue expected, though usu- ally sometime after the cost ñas mov- ed further upward and onward. Most of tne agencies naving legal staffs are not on the Civil Service system, their personnel being categorized as "excep- ted service', so that wnile the pay scale is patterned after the Civil Service Ratings, the degree of job protection enjoyed might be consider- ably less than that of another govern- ment employee. Despite this there is, as indicated earlier, a relatively high degree of security and seldom is a staff member released except in cas- es of total incompetence or a reduc- tion in force urought about during a recession. Most positions are at least nominally free from polit...

As the poet so epigrammatically states, it is indeed the set of the sail which determines the way we qo. If we have set our sails, if we have made definite plans about specific as^ certainables, our whole life will be orderly and will reflect this fact. If, however, we have not been so pru- dent, if we have allowed the winds to toss us to and fro, hither and thi- ther, unresolutely, unplanned and un- charted, our life will be most chaotic and our erratic life will reflect this lack of direction. This article is written with the hone of stimulating interest in a job placement center, which, it is believ- ed, would provide the kind of direc- tion, the kind of help and aid which...

Annotations - March,'70 The year 1969 proved to be a great one for the Phi Alpha Delta fraterni- ty, and the forthcoming year should be even greater. During the past year the P.A.D.s created and maintained an ac- tive placement service for the frater- nity and also for S.T.C.L. The proaram includes, not only, the bringing of oersonnel officers to campus, but also studies in the major areas o* law work and professional coffees to sound out future emoloyers as to their needs and desires. So far the placement has been used mainly by P.A.D. members, howev- er, it is hoped that in the forthcom- ing year the placement activities can be extended to all S.T.C.L. students on a more expanded basis. Bill Allen, Treasurer of P.A.D., put together an informative tax semi- nar under the auspices of the fratern ity. A round table discussion was cre- ated between leading tax attorneys from both sides of the I.R.S. fence. Needless to say, a lively question and answer period followed over coffee mostl...

In particular, it is believed, most students, are com oletely and comprehensibly ignorant of the varied areas of leqal work. The areas of specialization can be Gener- ally cateqorized into three broad are- as, private practice, qovernment or public service, and corporate counsel. Each of these categories can, of cou- rse, be further subdivided into other specialties, but suffice it to say that a good placement center could pro vide the information about these fie- lds which would enable the student to formulate some early plans in reqards to employment. After all, there is a deqree of specialization one could a- chieve, if one knew in what area he wished to specialize. And it is the rare student who knows unmistakably and unalterably what area he intends to practice. The average studen...

The following article by Bob Lindsey is to the point in bring- ing out some of the pitfalls and fail- ings of the act as passed by the leg- islature. Bob Lindsey is the manager of a local well established finance company and is in a nosition to see the effect of the bill from the stand- point of how it really bears upon the general borrowing public. — — — —— The latest sham being perpetrated by a Dossibly well meaning, but very uninformed legislature, is the Truth in Lending Bill which became effective July 1st, 1970. The purpose of this bill was the protection of the general public from current loan practices. The bill was especially for those not sophisticated enough in such matters to protect themselves. It has failed in that respect. It has had a mild impact among the more educated members of our communi- ty. It has made them aware that the 8% add-...

Professionally, Delta Theta Phi co- ncentrates on making the transition from law school to the practice as smooth and as successful as nossible.

LAW OFFICE MANAGEMENT: One Semester Hour. INSTRUCTOR: John F. Ensle, B.B.A., J.D., University of Texas; Assistant Professor of Law. PREREQUISITE: 40 Semester Hours. CLASS MEETS: Wednesdays - 5:30 - 6:30 P.M. In recognition of the fact that many young lawyers enter solo practice of law without the opportunity to observe the operation of an efficient law office, a course is being taught this fall entitled LAW OFFICE MANAGEMENT. It will be the purpose of this course to familiarize the student with the establishment and operation of an effective law office. Profes- sor Ensle states that the following topics, among others, will be treated during the semester: Determining office location and layout; selecting office machines, equipment and library materials; employing office staff; establishing...

Annotations - August, 1970 Page 4 EDITORIAL i Cont'd from previous page) A GOOD LAW SCHOOL What does one mean when he says that another attended a 'good school'? Does a college get the 'good school" reputation because it graduates students who obtain employment with the large, well-known corpora- tions? Or turns out people who become "successful"? What are the characteristics of a good law school? Is it graduating lawyers who excel on the Bar Examination? Or who are sought after by Establishment law firms? It is probably all these and more. But could it be that the paramount trait of a'good' law school is instilling in the student a feel for the law, a sense of justice and fair play, a desire to go to the courthouse and win for the client regardless of fee, and a deep belief in due process for both rich and poor, for black, brown and white, for Republican, Democrat and Marxist?

In order to take this valuable Bar course, then, one must attend summer school — and no one should be forced to do that! Furthermore, class enrollment is so large for the 'once-only' that both professor and student find it difficult going. As an example, ninety-five are enrolled in Trusts this summer. By offering Trusts only once a year the student finds himself playing the conflict-of-schedule game. Scheduling of classes is something we want no part of, however ANNOTATIONS feels that Trusts should be taught at least every other year during Fall or Spring Semester, as well as each Summer.

I do sincerely believe, however, that a tentative schedule would go far in alleviating one of the obstacles inherent in attending night law school which must offer a wide selection of courses rather than a planned program. If you agree or disagree or wish to propose another alter- native, then I urge you to do so and discuss this with your newly elected student Bar Representatives and ask their help in this matter.

"We must realize that today's establishment is the new George III. Whether it will continue to adhere to his tactics, we do not know. If it does, the redress, honored in tradition, is also revolution" and so the tenor of Mr. Justice Douglas's latest book(let) Points of Rebellion is set. A tenor which the Establishment has reacted decisively to — possible impeach- ment proceedings! Regardless of ones persuasion, this is an important book for law students.
