The panel discussion will concern some of the issues women face in the legal work place.

Who are those people whose photographs are on the first-floor wall? In this series of profiles, we introduce you to the members of the Academy of the Law Alumni Fellows. The Fellows are the recipients of the highest honor the Law School bestows on its alums. We hope that each profile will help you reflect on the successes of our alumni as well as some possibilities that are ahead for you.
JAMES F. THORNBURG
The ideal of the citizen-lawyer that all who value the legal profession would make universal is personified in James Fletcher Thornburg. Born and reared in Winchester, Indiana he received his baccalaureate from DePauw University and his J.D. with high distinction from the Indiana University School of Law.
As a practitioner in South Bend, his brilliance and diligence earned him a devoted clientele and the respect of his peers. He is a leading expert on estate planning and administration and state and federal taxation and helped formulate both professional tools and governmental policies in his chosen specialties.
Recognizing the imperative of bringing the broadest legal services to clients, he played a leading role in a merger that spanned cities and formed the largest law firm in Indiana. His old and new partners demonstrated their esteem by naming their firm Barnes and Thornburg. He has taken time from family and law practice to organize and execute community projects that have enabled South Bend to retain its economic vigor.
As president and member of the State Board of examiners in the past, he raised the standards of the legal profession today. He initiated an innovative technique of legal instruction by arranging for his entire firm to join in teaching at Notre Dame law School. At a most critical time in the history of the Indiana University School of Law, his counsel as Chairman of the Board of Visitors helped the Dean and faculty adopt policies that stabilized and elevated the role of the School in the legal education of the state and nation.

JOB LISTINGS ON WEBSITE
Career Services announces two important enhancements to the job listings found on its website. First, job listings on the website are more timely. Jobs are listed as soon as they are received and processed by the CSO. Because job listings are now separate from the CSO Newsletter, the job listings will be automatically available on the web year-round. Second, job listings on the website are comprehensive. The information available from the website is the same as the hard copy available in the job notebooks in the CSO.
These job listings are easy to read and use. Jobs are listed by job number and date (most recent jobs first). Each entry on the list includes the job number, listing date, job title, employer, and location. Scan the list and then click on a particular listing to view the full job description.
To access jobs on the Web, visit the Law School website www.law.indiana.edu, click on Career Services, then click on Student Employment Services. When you see the list of services, click on Job Listings for Students. You will see a prompt asking for a username and password. Type in "csouser" for the username and "crimson" for the password. Click on Job Listings for Students, and then you will see the list of jobs.
