How can a lawyer or Judge
expect to keep up with the latest
happenings in the legal profes-
sion? One way this may be done
is to enroll in a course sponsored
by the Institute of Continuing Le-
gal Education.
The Institute was formed in 1960
as a joint venture of the Law
School, Wayne State University
Law School and the State Bar of
Michigan. Its aim is to provide
non-credit law courses, for lawyers
and judges, E. Donald Shapiro,
director of the Institute, said re-
"The courses are designed to
help today's lawyers cope success-
fully with the complex problems
they must solve in an increasing-
ly specialized world," Shapiro said.
The success of the Institute and
its effect upon the Michigan legal
profession is evidenced by the
fact that in its four year history
19,000 lawyers and judges have
attended its courses. Shapiro not-
ed that this is more than twice
the number of lawyers in the state.

obligation to the general public
"The University's responsibility t
the public and to the administra-
tion of justice does not end when
a boy is 24 and turned loose with
a law degree. The Law School and
legal community owe responsibil-
ity to the public to see that
their education continues as lon[
as he practices."

Prof. John M. Allen of the zool-;
ogy department has been named
along with 11 other biologists to
serve on the governing board of1

cal Sciences.
