Between the law student at the University of Nebraska and the members of the local and state bar associations there exists an unfortunate gap which is due in part to the isolation of the two institutions from one another. From the student's point of view it is unfortunate because he is losing something very meaningful by not coming into contact with the members of the active practice, save in a few individual circumstances. Perhaps this gap could be narrowed to a certain extent, if not permanently closed, by arousing in the members of the bar an interest in the law school and its curriculum. A remedial solution is suggested which would entail effort on the part of both the law student and the bar, in which the students could put on a student-conducted program or institute similar to those put on by the bar, for the benefit of both. A feasible possibility for the opportunity to conduct such institutes lies in the construction of a new law school with continuing educational facilities for the members of the bar association. Also, the seniors at the College of Law are in the process of attempting to wrest the power and control from the administration with respect to our graduation, and allocate that power where we feel it should be: in the college of law itself. The Review would like to thank the Nebraska Association of Trial Attorneys and the House of Delegates of the Nebraska State Bar Association, on behalf of the student body, for aiding us in our efforts.
