Law Revic
By LAURIE WINKLEMAN
Some University law students say being an editor on the
ichigan Law Review is a ticket to a lucrative job with a top,
ight law firm.
But Review Managing Editor Peter Lieb, who spends 65
ours a week editing extensive articles to fill eight editions
er year, says "after you've joined the Review, the glory
isappears and the work starts."
"WHEN YOU'RE on Review, you're too busy to do
nything else,' says Note Editor Mike McGee. "It's a
aradox that those on Review got there by studying very
ard their freshman year of law school. When these students
re on Review they don't have a lot of time for classes."
Rteview editors and writers are chosen on the basis of their
reshman year GPA, which generally can be no lower than
.8. Some members of the 35 person staff are also selected on
he basis of their entries in a writing competition.
Once chosen, Review staffers must write and edit scholarly
rticles concerning recent legal questions.
AN ARTICLE published in the Review has generally been
rafted three to six times, which canbe demoralizing to the
uthor, Review staffers say.
"It's disconcerting that when you get your first draft back,
t is in ribbons," McGee said. "There are more editing com-
nents than what you wrote."

w tffsavsaway
gal tha editig is one oftemost dfatn ex
periences that you have ever gone through in school," says
Note Editor Alan Gittles. "You think, 'Oh my gosh! Am I a M ic g
Neanderthal?"
BUT GITTLES and McGee agree that their experiences on W CviCW
the Review has sharpened their thinking, researching and
writing skills.
"When I'm editing, I try and think of every way a note can
be improved," Lieb said. '1iz
By working on the review students can become experts in a
narrow field of law, staffers say. According to Review staf-
ferArt Harris, working on the Review is a must for those who ,
plan to teach law someday. "Most of the young professors
here were on the law reviews of the top schools," he said. . h
Review-staffers say that a little friction exists between them
and other law students because of advantages Review staf- OK
fers have in the job market.v
"I think the Review is misperceived by a lot of students,"
says Editor-in-chief Rick Werder. "They see it as a badge of
merit rather than as a large work commitment." ;

Review staffers do have some privileges because they put
in an average of 30 hours per week on the job, says Werder.
Staffers get to stay in library after closing to catch up on
school work, he said.,

J' law school students get royal treatment

(Continued from Page 2)
nplistic view of students= abilities.
Nevertheless, firms are often very in-
rested in a student's grades and test
ores.
"THE FIRST question often asked by
i interviewer is, 'What are your
ides?' and the second question is
That is your LSAT score?' "third year
udent Craig Lawson said.
Lawson said he finds the first
iestion callous and the second one in-
lting and irrelevant.
"Law school grades are not a good
dicator of one's future success as a
wyer, because during exams, you
lust- work alone, without books, and
ith a time limit," Lawson said, "In.-
ead, when you are practicing, you
infer' with other lawyers, refer to
)oks, and have much more time to
li ,i

THE LAW school placement office
tries to discourage interviewers from
asking LSAT scores by giving them a
written statement, prepared by the
Educational Testing Service which
administers the LSAT. The statement
says there is no correlation between
LSAT scores and degree of success as a
lawyer.
Each law student can sign up for as
many as 25 campus interviews through
the placement office. Second-year law
students interview for summer jobs,
and third year students look for per-
manent employment.
Students have approximately 20
minutes with a firm representative
during the initial interview. A student
who makes a particularly good im-
pression might be invited to dinner with
the interviewer that night.

HOURS AFTER the interview or
weeks later, some students receive
phone calls or letters inviting them to
fly out to the firm for a half or full day
of interviews. Approximately one-fifth
of campus interviews result in "flybak-
cs," and about one-half the flybacks
result in jobs.
November is the peak month for
flybacks. The faculty last year
proposed a mid-semester break in
November because students'
schoolwork and class attendance slacks
off during peak flyback periods.
Students, however, unanimously op-
posed the plan because it would extend
the school year.
Students say there is some abuse of
the flyback system.
FOR EXAMPLE, a student might in-
terview in a certain city with a firm in
which he or she is not interested
because the studenthwants to visit
family or friends in the city. Also, a
student might only fly on Northwest
airlines, even though it might not offer
the cheapest flight, because Northwest
gives free round trip ticket anywhere in
the country to someone who has flown
five round trips within a certain period
of time.
However, most students say the great
amount of time and energy that

flybacks require limits the number of
unnecessary trips.
"It's typical for the interview to be a
strain on the students," Lawson said.
"There is pressure to distinguish
oneself. It's like playing 'The Dating
Game' getting firms to like you."
EISENBERG likened the inter-
viewing process to rushing a fraternity.
"There's a lot of bull on both sides," he
said.
Although University law students are
in demand, many have their share of
rejections.
"Almost everyone except those on the
Law Review get more rejections than
flyback offers," said third year student
Matthew Kiefer.
AVERAGE starting salaries for
graduating law students range from
$20,000 for firms in small cities, to
$44,000 for firms in New York City.
Large firms in Detroit pay an average
starting salary of $28,000.
Associates in a law office usually
work a minimum of fifty hours a week.
A word processor that operates 24 hours
a day and living facilities within the law
office complex are clues that the firm
works overtime. Kiefer recalled one
law office he visited that had tooth-
brushes and monogrammed towels for
everyone in the firm.

INBRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
Typhoid eases up to 10
. JACKSON- In announcing a rise- in the number of typhoid fever cases,
health officials said yesterday the federal Center for Disease Control was
joining the investigation of the mysterious outbreak.
Dr. Dean Tribby, director of the Jackson County Health Department, said
10 cases of the rare disease were confirmed, up two from Thursday, and four
other people were being monitored as suspected victims of the fever.
All 14 were lodged in local hospitals and reported in fair condition.
Tribby said blood samples of former workers at a restaurant that served
contaminated food were sent to the Atlanta center for testing.
IR A plants bomb in Lohdon
LONDON- The Irish Republican Army planted a bomb under the home of
Attorney-General.Sir Michael Havers that police said caused a "tremendous
explosion" last night, but no deaths because the house was empty at the
time.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said three male police offices were taken to a
hospital with minor injuries, and a woman police officer on duty outside the
house in the affluent southwest London suburb of Wimbledon suffered shock.
The mainly Profisional wing of the IRA issued a statement to newspapers
in Dublin, Ireland, saying their guerrillas planted the bomb1. It was the four-
th IRA bombing attack in London since the IRA-which wants to drive the
British out of Northern Ireland-resumed its campaign of violence in the
British capital Oct. 10 after a two-year break.
Polish strikers back to work
WARSAW, Poland- More than 200,000 factory workers, coal miners, and
farmers ended a series-of crippling wildcat strikes yesterday, easing
Poland's labor tension before crucial talks between the Communist gover-
nment and the Solidarity union.
Three other strikes-less crucial to the nation's faltering economy- con-
tinued..The largest of them involved more than 10,000 newspaper vendors in
seven provinces.
Both Solidarity and the government received the news of the settlements
with quiet satisfaction. Spokesmen from each side have been talking about
the need to restore labor peace before government-union talks on political
and economic reforms begin Tuesday.
Reagan to retire Rickover
WASHINGTON- President Reagan has decided to retire 81-year-old
Adm. Hyman Rickover early next year and has asked the father of the
nuclear Navy to serve as the president's adviser on civilian use of atomic
energy, the Pentagon announced yesterday.
Rickover, who has been uniquely independent in overseeing development
of the nuclear Navy for more than 30 years; is thus being eased out in line
with recommendations from 39-yearold Navy Secretary John Lehman.
Industrial output sinks
WASHINGTON- The nation's industrial output sank further in October
than it had in 16 months, the government reported yesterday, adding to a
stack of reports that are burying any doubts the economy has fallen into a
,,."new recession..,. . .>.. _:- ®y.-
Industrial production fell 1.5 percent in October, the most since the 1.7
percent drop in June 1980 during last year's short but steep recession, the
Federal Reserve Board said

on some
CIA spy
proposals
WASHINGTON (AP) The Reagan
administration is rolling back some of
its plans to grant the CIA new powers to
spy in the United States, but
congressional critics still are seeking
additional civil liberty safeguards.
"We're still recommending more
changes," said Senate Intelligence
Committee member Patrick Leahy (D-
Vt.) yesterday. "There's been some
significant improvement in the order.
I'm encouraged with what I've heard,
although there's still a way to go."
ADMINISTRATION officials are
working on a fourth draft of a presiden-
tial order to govern U.S. intelligence
agencies. To prevent repetition of past
intelligence abuses, the Senate In-
telligence Committee unanimously
recommended six or seven changes in
the third draft two weeks ago.
Several sources, who asked not to be
identified, said administration officials
are backing off a plan that would have
given the CIA broad, new authority to
infiltrate and influence domestic
groups.a
But the sources said the ad-
ministration still wants to let the spy
agency conduct covert actions
domestically and collect "significant"
foreign intelligence in this country.
THE SOURCES said Reagan was
likely to sign a final order early next
week. With Reagan's signature, the or-
der would have the force of law and
replace President Carter's 1978 order
which Reagan officials have criticized
as hampering U.S. intelligence
gathering.
Tom Horner, an aide to another
committee member, Sen. David
Durenberger (R-Minn.), said Thursday
night that the lathst revisions "did not
respond to all the objections" the
senator has, but that he "doesn't
believe it's a closed book yet."
The sources said the administration
had largely accepted the chief Senate

'WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?'
Psalm 2:1 and Acts 4:25
"It is singular how long the rotten will hold together, provided you do not
handle it roughly." Picture a rotten apple hanging on a tree, or elsewhere, it
holds together a long time unless it falls or is handled a little roughly, and
then you have "rotten apple sauce." One meaning of "corruption" is
"rottenness." The earth became corrupt, or rotten in the days of Noah. God
handled it rather roughly, it went to pieces and there was none left except the
man who found grace in God's sight, the man who feared God, and obeyed
Him! .
There is much rottenness and corruption in the home and family life of our
nation; there is much rottenness and corruption in the political life of our
nation; the main cause of the corruption and rottenness in the family and
governmental life of our nation can be traced to corruption and rottenness in
our Protestant Christian Church life, and every one of us who have taken
-such vows are especially responsible'! Did not God handle us roughly when
