Overwhelmed Law Student Declares For The NBA Draft | Dime Magazine ...
Back in high school, I always thought it’d be funny to declare for the NBA Draft. Coming from Vermont, I figured that the story would get picked up by ESPN and at least some scout/GM would have to check to see if I was the real deal or not. Because let’s be honest, no one follows prep hoops in VT. Anyways, this past weekend, I came across a similar story as 2011 J.D. Candidate Ryan McAteer from the University of Kansas School of Law published his intentions to enter the 2010 NBA Draft in the Kansas Law Free Press . Check out his letter to David Stern and Stu Jackson below. Ladies and Gentlemen, First and foremost, ... market research, surveys and trends
TaxProf Blog: NALP Reports Plunging Law Student Employment
As the U.S. and global economies were battered by “the Great Recession” in the third quarter of 2009, recruiting volumes by U.S. legal employers on the campuses of U.S. law schools nose-dived. In fact, the data provided by NALP members about fall 2009 recruiting reveal that most of the trends and patterns that the industry had come to rely upon were upended, dramatically so in some cases. All of the markers that measure the strength of the legal employment market for new lawyers, such as law firm recruiting levels for summer programs and summer program outcomes, fell in 2009, continuing and accelerating the general downward ... market research, surveys and trends

to domestic and international service providers.� However, it appears that the stigma associated with outsourcing remains.� A new survey conducted by Fronterion , an international legal outsourcing consulting firm, found that few firms are willing to admit to outsourcing "leading to a culture of secrecy around an increasingly important development within the legal services industry." Firms are reluctant to disclose their outsourcing practices for a variety of reasons including the ethical implications raised by legal process outsourcing (LPO).� These ethical issues include�competence and supervision of outsourced work; ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Applying to Law School? Please Reconsider Your Law School ...
Think you want to apply to law school? It might be time to rethink your application decision. While law school admissions are at an all-time high, law jobs are disappearing. Maybe forever. The concurrent trends of increasing legal education cost, decreasing legal employment, and strong debt insulation are setting the law school market up for a crash. Sam recently published an article on MinnPost titled, “ The Law School Bubble is About to Burst .” In that post, Sam makes the case that law school admissions may be experiencing an irrational exuberance that can only lead to collapse. According the ABA , the cost of law ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Now hiring: Local job market starting to recover
It’s not a scientific survey, but 10 Colorado Springs-area employers contacted by The Gazette recently are doing something that many job hunters haven’t seen in a while — they’re hiring. And in some cases, they’re adding hundreds of employees. That doesn’t mean the area’s economy is booming, but it’s a sign that the local job market is starting to recover and that jobs are a bit more plentiful than six months ago. While some of the hiring is to replace workers who left for other jobs, many of the employers say they are expanding their staffs as a result of growth in their business ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Do immigrants help the economy?
As the national debate over immigration splinters into state-by-state skirmishes over Arizona-style crackdowns on illegal immigrants, a new book from the Brookings Institution makes the case that enforcement efforts overlook a fundamental fact: immigration fuels the U.S. economy. At a time of 9.5 percent unemployment, the argument may be surprising. But “Brain Gain: Rethinking U.S. Immigration Policy” hammers home an argument that gifted immigrants have powered American advances in energy, information technology, sports, arts and culture. “The U.S. has benefited greatly over the years from the ’brain gain’ of immigration,” said ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Criminal Law (5), Contracts (2), Corporate Law (2), Employment and Labor Law (2), Government Policy (1), Property Law (1), Small Business (1) This was selected as Best Answer Generally, an agreement may take any of three forms: Oral, written, or implied in fact. "A contract is either express or implied."(Cal. Civ. Code, § 1619.) If in writing, it's known as an "express contract." (Civ. Code, § 1620.) You mention no written employment contract, but it is likely you have one.
