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 / Re: Was the war in Iraq a war of choice?
« on: June 28, 2005, 08:59:40 AM »

There are many countries that would benefit from some sort of democracy. Are you advocating that we invade each of them? How do we prioritize? By the necessity of the situation, or by the possibility of profit for those involved?

There have been Cuban refugees advocating the US invade Cuba. Ditto Haiti, and probably many other countries. Again, which one are you choosing next?

Iraq had definite serious totalitarian-level problems, I don't mean to downplay those issues. But it was primarily a secular Muslim nation, with a generally well-education population and relative freedoms for women. Now it's becoming like other Muslim nations where women can't travel without a male relative and 'proper' clothing, or their lives may be in jeopardy. Are you certain the steps taken are moving towards democracy?

So far the war in the middle east seems to be providing a great training ground for future terrorists. I'm not sure that this necessarily creates a path to peace.

US helped to create both Saddam and Osama. What will our current investments revisit upon our society in 10-20 years?

I am not advocating the invasion of any country; the problem is not whether we should invade any other countries. However, the US is at Iraq, Hussein is captured, and I think the purpose of the continuing presence at Iraq is to ensure that another 'Hussein-type' leader does not replace him. An Iraqi once asked my opinion of the future of Iraq, and I said that the US will probably establish a permanent military presence there, as it has done at other countries such as Germany.

The important subject:"So far the war in the middle east seems to be providing a great training ground for future terrorists." "US helped to create both Saddam and Osama. What will our current investments revisit upon our society in 10-20 years?"

10-20 years? Probably not that long. Remember, the US also created McVeigh.

The correct answer: ;)

According to the Westphalian System, the war at Iraq is not 'necessary.'

I just wanted to let you know that the interest rates for Stafford loans will increase to 4.7% (from 2.77%) beginning July 1.

According to my lenders, some of the rates would increase to more than 5%.

By federal law, consolidations can be done only by the original lenders. Hence, a person cannot transfer the loans to their financial institutions and consolidate.

The consolidation specials are directed mainly at recent grads, however, students are also encouraged to consolidate as a way of keeping the low interest rates. Consolidation will also put the loans into the repayment status, so any students who aren't ready to begin repayment must remember to re-apply for deferment.
