any students studying the non-bar curriculum for JD/Executive degrees?

General Board / Professional Conduct, Responsibility & Ethics
« on: August 13, 2005, 02:29:52 PM »
I realize that most law schools' required courses include the study of Professional Conduct and Responsibility, but how many law students actually believe that ethics is an important role of lawyer practice?
How many students believe that they will still think that way after 5, 10 or more years of practice?

General Board / Solo practice
« on: July 26, 2005, 07:14:12 PM »
I sort of had the impression that new lawyers must start somewhere already established, such as the Prosecutor's office, or a law firm, etc. However, I just read an article about lawyers who start their careers as solo practice.

Was wondering if any of the students posting here have considered that option.

Summer Law Clerk

Work Schedule: Full Time
Salary: $50,590
Location: Washington, DC metropolitan area

The CIA Office of General Counsel has a Summer Legal Clerkship Program that allows a small number of exceptionally qualified law students to obtain broad exposure to the practice of intelligence law. Although the Office makes no commitment with respect to future employment beyond an individual's summer clerkship, each participant may be evaluated for future employment at the conclusion of the program. Whether continued employment will be offered is entirely discretionary, and will be based upon the individual's entire resume package, performance as a summer law clerk, the availability of entry-level attorney positions and overall budgetary constraints.

The Office of General Counsel provides advice and guidance to those officers and employees within the CIA who have specific responsibility for the conduct of US Intelligence activities. It should be noted that the CIA is a foreign intelligence agency, not a law enforcement agency, and is expressly prohibited by law from having any police or law enforcement powers, or internal security functions.

OGC handles a wide variety of legal issues, including, among other things, both civil and criminal litigation, foreign intelligence and counterintelligence activities, counterterrorism, counternarcotics, nonproliferation and arms control, personnel and security matters, contracting, finance and budget matters, tax, immigration, international financial transactions, corporate law, copyright, intellectual property, foreign and international law, and legislation. The Office of General Counsel consists of attorneys with a variety of backgrounds and experience. Generally second-year law students are hired for the position of Summer Law Clerk. A commitment of at least 10 weeks' duration during the summer is required.

General Board / Case of MIA Fiance (or the absent-minded fiancee)
« on: June 02, 2005, 08:00:29 PM »
Please decide what laws apply.

A man and a woman meet, and soon after, in presence of a witness, one proposes marriage. The other accepts. The couple meets the requirements of capacity.

A few weeks later, a no-fault situation caused the couple to not see each other again for more than 4 years. They have not broken off the engagement, and they are on amicable terms with each other. Was consideration a necessity of forming the oral contract? If the contract was a legal oral contract of engagement, and is neither fulfilled, breached or revoked, is it still valid, or is it made invalid by the amount of time which has passed?
