‘Advocates for Life’: Initiative Aims to Organize Pro-Life Students in 200 Law Schools

    “. . . The idea was hatched by [Kellie] Fiedorek and several other participants in the Blackstone Legal Fellowship, an annual summer school for 110 second-year law students put on by the Alliance Defense Fund. The ADF began as a fund-raising organization to support legal cases in defense of traditional marriage, the right to life and freedom of religion. Now it has 40 litigators of its own working on cases and runs both the Blackstone Legal Fellowship for students and the National Litigation Academy to train practicing lawyers in pro-life and other legal issues. ‘Several of us last summer were talking about the great support we were getting from Blackstone and went from there to what a need there was for pro-life students on campus for the same support,’ said Fiedorek, who just graduated from Ave Maria University’s law program. The Alliance Defense Fund’s Mat Bowman says Advocates for Life will be a powerful ally in the ADF’s own efforts to ‘educate the next generation of lawyers in the best legal arguments for the protection of innocent life. . . ”

George Will: Facing Up to a Pension Crisis

    George Will writes at Townhall: “Asked how the nation might address the projected $17.5 trillion in unfunded Social Security liabilities, Rubio said we should consider two changes for people 10 or more years from retirement. One would raise the retirement age. The other would alter the calculation of benefits: Indexing them to inflation rather than wage increases would substantially reduce the system’s unfunded liabilities.”

    National Law Journal (Law.com): “. . . The conference, called ‘Future Ed: New Business Models for U.S. and Global Legal Education,’ is part of a year-long initiative sponsored by New York Law School and Harvard Law School to build on the findings of the Carnegie Foundation’s influential 2007 report on legal education. The Carnegie report concluded that law schools don’t do a good enough job of helping students develop professional competence and identity. It called for a more integrated curriculum that marries the traditional analytical courses with practical training that gives students a better understanding of what it’s like to practice law . . . ”

Researcher calls pornography detrimental to the male-female relationship

    The Daily Princetonian: “Paul, the author of ‘Pornified: How Pornography Is Damaging Our Lives, Our Relationships, and Our Families,’ spoke about what she uncovered while writing her book and challenged her critics in a candid lecture on Thursday in McCosh 46. … Paul said she thought compulsive porn-watching has changed male-female relationships and undermines ‘intimacy.’ Both sexes noted that some men felt it necessary to have porn playing in the background as they were having sex.”
