REFRESHER COURSE
STARTS JANUARY 7
The refresher course for returning law-
yer-veterans will start January 7, Nicholas
Jnureguy, who heads the Oregon State Bar
school of review, has announced and it
will continue for eight weeks, with the pos-
sibility that an additional week will be
provided for special subjects.
The course has been planned to bring
the lawyer-vterans up to (late on the hap-
penings in the law while they have been out
fighting their country's battles.
In his announcement of the prcgram, Mr.
Jaureguy said:
The courses will start Mon, day evening,
January 7, 1946, and will continue for eight
weeks until Friday, March 1. Classes will
be held only in the evenirg, none in the
afternoon a heretofore planned, There
will be 12 hourse of lectures per week, two
hours on most evenings and three hours on
other evenings, so as to total 96 hours,
Each evening following the lecture period
it is planned to throw the meeting open to
questions and general discussion. If suffi-
cient interest is manifested a ninth week
will be added covering trial practice and
possibly other subjects.
It was decided to leave it optional with
each instructor whether to give his lectures
in a series of one hour lectures or two hour
lectures, The methods of instruction and
the particular phases of each subject to be
given particular emphasis are also left to
the discretion of individual instructors, ex-
cept of course it is to be borne in mind
that the principal purpose of the sessions
is to aid service men who have been absent
from the practice for several years.
Particular emphasis on recent develop-
ments and especially Oregon cases during
the period of the war should be given.
Several of our prospective students were
called into the service after completing
their law school work but without an op-
portunity to take the bar examination and
will take this course as an important sten
in preparing themselves for the practice of
law.
Classes will be open to all members of
the bar whether veterans or not. The tui-
tion charge will be $80.00 for the entire
course, or $1.00 per hour for individual
courses. Members of the faculty may at-
tend any or all lectures without charge,

LAW SCHOOL MERGER IS UP

GEARHART PROGRAM

FOR CONVENTION DEBATE Tfl RF RIIY ANF

Proposals to consolidate the law schools
of the state and recommendations that in-
vestigations be made of the parole system
in the Portland municipal court and that
changes he made in the requirements for the
admission to practice of lawyers from other
states will be sonic of the matters to be
considered at the convention of Oregon
State Bar at Hotel Gearhart October 18-20.
The law school consolidation issue wi!l
be before the convention on the report of
the late Arthur K. McMahan, champion of
the proposal, who, after an investigation,
declared he felt there was so much opposi-
tion that the matter might well be dropped.
That report will be considered and is ex-
pected to provoke some discussion.
The civil rights committee headed by
Nels Peterson has recommended that the
state constitution be changed to define more
clearly the authority of the state supreme
court in the appeal of criminal cases, the
matter being brought up by the decision in
the case of Robert E. Lee Foulkes. The
GOOD WEATHER PROBABLE
There is every prospect that Gear-
hart weather will be on its good be-
havior for the convention of the state
bar.
Weather bureau records for October
19, the second day of the three-day qes-
sion, indicate it has rained in this area
but four times in the 14 years since
1931.
On that clay last year the tempera-
ture was 76 and the skies clear. The
year before it was a cooler day, cloudy
and with a temperature of 59.
committee also recommended the investiga-
tion of the municipal court parole system
and by a committee which will report to
the board of governors for correction of
any invasion of civil rights.
Justice Arthur D. Hay, chairman, and
his committee on judicial administration,
recommended that the circuit judges form
an association in lieu of the proposed judi-
cial council, that expenses for attending
meetings be provided, that the county clerks
be required to furnish statistical informa-
tion reflecting the state of the triakl dock-
ets and that the chief justice be empowered
to require circuit judges to accept assign-
ments in districts other than their own. It
also recommended the elimination of the
present affidavit of prejudice and the sub-
stitution of a simple request for a change
of judge which would have the same effect.
The legal aid committee headed by Robert
0. Boyd reported an increasing amount of
