Says Business Expansion Has Turned
Lawyers Into Solicitors and
Business Counsellors
"In the last 35 years the business
expansion in this country has taken
lawyers out of the law and put them
into .business. It has destroyed the
profession of advocacy and turned the
lawyers into solicitors and counsellors
for the business interests," said Mr.
Albert M. Kales in his address on "Ad-
vocacy in the Appellate Courts," given
before the law students yesterday aft-
ernoon. This was the last of a series
of four lectures given by different
members of the Chicago bar on the
same general subject. Mr. Kales went
on as follows:
"This change has had its effect upon
the law schools. The ideals of the
schools have always kept before the
student the profession of advocacy.
Your walls are decorated with the por-
traits of the great judges. who were
the great advocates in their day. You
study the opinions of the same judges,
who received their training as advo-
"Yet the American legal world has
discarded these ideals and gone into
the making of money as the solicitors
and counsellors of business interests.
"The law schools have shown an
increasing interest in the success of
their graduates as such solicitors and
counsellors. One of the greatest
teachers was known to speak with
pride of the fact that his best stu-
dents could command $100 a month
in the best offices of New York City
on graduation. Nothing, to my mind,
was ever so incongruous as a great
leader of the Harvard Law School re-
joicing in this wholesale absorption
of his students by the legal business
"There are signs, however, of a new
development. Business is discovering
that its solicitors and counsellors are
r. no longer fitted for the practice of
advocacy. Thedgreat cases are mak-
ing an increasing demand for the pro-
fessional advocate. The solicitors and
counsellors are demanding his serv-
ices, as- the general practitioners of
medicine are calling upon the special-
is."This employment will give new life
to the ideals of the practice of advo-
cacy. It is the oblject of the Chicago
Society of Advocates to give force
and direction to this new demand."
After this introduction the speaker*
classified the advocates into those who
spend their time in jury trials, and
those who devote themselves to non-
jury or chancery trial work. le said
that those who practice as advocates
in the appellate court were not a sep-
arate class of advocates.
The speaker then mentioned six gen-
eral qualifications for the practice of
advocacy in the appellate courts: first,
training in argumentative writing;
second, general academic training in
law; third, special academic training
in the decisions of the particular ap-
pellate courts 'before which the advo-
cate practiced; fourth, the importance
of actual practice in the trial courts;
fifth, the voice, presence and address
of the advocate. which were of less
importance in the appellate court;
sixth, the necessity of constant prac-
tice in the appellate courts.

The speaker than passed to practical
hints as to the practice of advocacy
in the appellate courts. He dwelt upon
the importance of the attitude of the
advocate to the court; his absolute
frankness and sincerity in making his
points. He made practical suggestions
as to constructing written briefs and
arguments and oral arguments.
In conclusion the speaker dwelt
upon the true aim of advocacy in the
appellate , courts. This aim, briefly
stated, is to win. But there is more
inethis suggestion that the mere state-
The advocates in the appellate court
learn that cases can be won by argu-
ment. They learn what it is to force
opposing counsel to their knees; to
demonstrate to the court that they are
right and the other side is wrong.
They know that in a majority of cases
such a demonstration can be made
and the court convinced.
It is the aim of arguments to do
this on every occasion. The advocate
should have the spirit and object to
win by putting forth that which is un-
answerable and the demolition of an
opponent's case.

11, with an address of welcome. Fol-
lowing the address the following talks
will be given throughout the day:

dall; "Scientific Methods of Manage-
ment Applied to Various Types of In-
dustry," by Sanford E. Thompson;

tion of a Public Service Corporation,"

On Friday, May 12, round table dis-
cussions of scientific methods of man-
agement as applied to various types of
industry will be held. The discus-
sions, which will take place simultan-
eously in different rooms, will be on
such subjects as: Paper and pulp, tex-

or friendsswould be interested in at-
tending the conference may secure
programs and additional information
upon application to Professor Bursley.
The school children o .. Arbor
have entered into the "Swat theA}Py"
campaign with vengeance. Evidence
enough of this fact is furnished by
the request from the pupils of the
Tappan eshool, who have entered a
requisition for 300 swatters.
Pupils of other schools have asked
for fly killers in lesser numbers, but
all have evinced the liveliest interest
in the work of fly killing, following
the announcement of Superintendent
of Schools H. M. Slauson, that swat-
ters would be distributed free of
charge to public school pupils.

The great crisis of 1861-1870 as pic-
