DUKE BAR ASSOCIATION METING TO FEATURE ADDRESS ON
SCINTIFIC CRIME DETECTION
The October meeting of the Duke Bar Association will be featured by an
illustrated lecture on scientific crime detection by Mr. R. I. Conrad of
the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the report of the Section on Law
Reform, which will be presented by Mr. Robert W. Bogue, the Chairman, and
Mr. William L. Moose. Mr. Fleming Bomar, President of the Association,
will preside.
A commentator in the June issue of the Journal of the American Judica-
ture Society described the work of the Duke Bar Association in the follow-
ing language: Students of Duke University Law School get one kind of
preparation for the profession they aspire to enter more fully, probably,
than those in any other school. For years all students at Duke have been
members of a bar association. Not only are bar affairs ably discussed at
regular meetings, but there also is the excellent Duke Bar Association
Journal, which has been published twice a year for six years. The work
done by officers and committees of this Association is far better than that
of a good many voluntary associations. It has the advantage of being in-
clusive. The latest number of the Journal is a model for student editors.
It would be fortunate for North Carolina if all graduates from this school
should be admitted in that state. They would know from the start ghat their
profession should do in the support of collective interests.
LAW SCHOOL CABINS OCCUPIED
The log cabins for the housing of law students which have been under
construction during the summer have been completed and are now occupied by
32 students, consisting of 8 third year men, 6 second year men and 18 .first
year men. The group of five cabins is comp&sed of a central recreation
hall for the use of all the students and four cabins each of which provides
living quarters for eight persons. The cabins are situated in a thick
grove of trees within easy walking distance of the Law School Building.
FALL ISSUE OF LAW AND CONTMPORARY PROBLEMS TO BE DEVOTED
TO SYMPOSIUM ON HOME FINARCING
The fall issue of Law and Contemporary Problems will contain a sympo-
sium on Home Financing consisting of a series of articles surveying the
relevant federal legislation since 1932; examining the changes in sources
of mortgage funds in recent years; analyzing the state emergency mortgagor
relief laws, and the costly shortcomings of existing foreclosure methods=
presenting the proposals for uniform mortgage and mechanic' s lien laws;
and discussing the legal and economic problems of large scale private rental
projects and the possibilities of adjusting the urban mortgagor' s obliga-
tions to cyclical economic trends.
