Justice Margaret Frossard: Timing was Everything in Law School Graduate's Job Search

Posted November 26, 2012 by

Nov. 14 - Chicago Lawyer

Frossard: Alex, you are currently clerking for the Honorable Charles P. Kocoras, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. We met in the spring of 2011 when you were looking for career advice. You told me your "dream job" was to become a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, but you thought you would begin with a clerkship for a federal judge. I recall that you were "pipelining" at the time we met by interning for a federal judge. However, that particular federal judge was not hiring. At that point, what did I suggest that you do?

Stamatoglou: You encouraged me to focus my efforts on meeting established professionals who were well-positioned to help me. As I realized during our chat, there is no substitute for having respected professionals vouch for you. You then mentioned that you were planning on meeting Judge Kocoras for lunch in the next week, and offered to pass my resume along to him. A week later you emailed me to let me know that Judge Kocoras wanted to meet with me. I called his chambers that day to set up a meeting.

Prof. Ann Lousin Comments on the Defeated Proposed Pension Amendment

Posted November 19, 2012 by

Nov. 18 - The Academic Professional Advisory Committee

“ARTICLE XXX, Section 5 of our State Constitution (adopted in 1970) had as its purpose the safeguarding of the pensions of public employees,” said Ann Lousin, a faculty member at the John Marshall Law School and outspoken opponent of the amendment. She added that the change that was “proposed by this Amendment appears to be an attempt to circumvent or abolish those protections. For example, it is possible that a cost-of-living adjustment could be eliminated if this Amendment” passed.

SHE NOTED the amendment would have done “nothing for the State's pension-funding problem,” and, if approved, would have been “a catastrophe for Illinois.”

Justice Margaret Frossard Offers Tips for Tomorrow's Law School Students

Posted November 19, 2012 by

Nov. 16 - Office of Professionalism & Engagement

Frossard: What has surprised you the most about law school so far?
Lauren Adrian: I was all business in the weeks prior to law school. Being the first law student in my family, I was compelled to do some extra research in preparation, which reinforced the fact that law school was a highly competitive environment. Some sources went as far as suggesting the possibility of sabotage between students! I came to terms with the thought of having to watch my back once school started, but after the second week I didn’t see any evidence of student sabotage. In fact, my fellow students are all supportive and encouraging. After being in school for half a semester, I am very happy to report that there is a sense of community between the students. Our community thrives on the mentality that we are all in this together!
