NEWS FROM THE FACULTY
Professor Craig Bradley appeared on Inside Edition on January 7 and on CBS News on January 14 in connection with the Chief Justice's role in the impeachment trial. However, the CBS appearance, which was in the second half of an expanded hour-long broadcast, was not shown on the Indianapolis station, which broadcast Wheel of Fortune instead. Vanna White in a popularity contest with the Chief Justice? A no brainer.
Professor Bradley also gave a presentation on his forthcoming book, Criminal Procedure: A Worldwide Study to the Federalist Society Faculty meeting, held in conjunction with the AALS meeting in New Orleans in January.
Professor Dau-Schmidt made two presentations at the annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools in New Orleans, Louisiana, January 7 and 8. The first presentation was on "Alternative Economic Paradigms and the Analysis of Law," and the second was entitled "The Fruits of Our Labors: An Empirical Study of the Distribution of Income and Job Satisfaction across the Legal Profession."

SNYDER VISITING SCHOLAR
At the Research Centre for International Law
Cambridge University, England
Dr. Earl A. Snyder, an alumnus of Indiana University School of Law and Cambridge University, has generously provided support for a student (current 2L or 3L) from Indiana University to work at the Research Centre for International Law of Cambridge University during the late summer and early fall of 1999. Accordingly, current 3Ls have an advantage. A current 2L, if selected, might need to take a leave of absence for the fall semester.
Mr. Snyder will provide air fare, a housing and meal allowance, and stipend, worth over $4,000 altogether. The Centre contemplates that the Snyder Scholar will be in residence for about three months and will either participate in an on-going project of the Centre or be assigned a project of his or her own. Because the Centre expects the Snyder Scholar to work on an international law project, applicants must have had international law or equivalent courses. The Snyder Scholar should also be committed to further study of or practice in international law. Demonstrating a commitment can be done by listing courses taken in the international law area, research in international law topics, employment in the international arena, knowledge of languages, career goals, extracurricular activities and so on.
Applicants should provide the following:
1.a resume; and
2.a statement of commitment to international law and personal research agenda.
Please provide your name, address, and a phone number where you can be reached here in Bloomington. Return your completed applications to Dale Calabrese in Room 024 by Tuesday, January 26, 1999.
The preliminary selection committee will be comprised of faculty. Interviews may be required. The final selection will be made by Mr. Lauterpacht, Cambridge University professor and one of the premier lawyers on the international front, in late February. See Dean Fromm with questions.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: JANUARY 26, 1999
