GILMORE NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Young attorneys, green from law school but at the top of their classes, are going places in a big way at the U. S. Department of Justice. Important federal cases are being prepared and personally handled by these bright men and women who were students just a short while ago. All are being given red carpet treatment in the way of training and experience. It's part of Attorney General, arriving he was sent, to the U,S.

He is one of 30 persons who were the first to participate in the recruitment program for honor law graduates which was started by Brownell in December, 1953. Four other attorneys hold the same job title as 29-year-old Hogan, but he is the youngest man in the department to be given such an important position since the Republicans have been in office. Hogan's main job will be to direct the recruitment program which he Is familiar with, as one of Its original members. In addition, he will handle some legislative liaison duties. .

"The department feels that (he best person to carry out the commitments of the Attorney General's program is someone who came in under it," explains Hogan. ''I xvill be in charge of recruiting- top flight law graduates all over the country, and making sure they are given the type of work they want." Other young men at Justice are carrying big loads. Take, for example, 26-year-old Rollins Koppel, a graduate of the University of Texas Law School. He recently handled one of the biggest cases given to a man his age in the history of the department.

"I had a few misgivings at the start because the Appellate Court is a pretty high placr; to bcfii". But I was confident trip poMtion of the Justice Department was sound, and when they started asking me questions I was completely relaxed." Another young lawyer is 25-year- old Jack Sexton, a graduate of Harvard law School. In September, 1954, he started in the Tax Division! He was there only two weeks before being loaned to the Criminal Division to assist Justice attorneys conducting the grand jury investfgation on the housing scandals. He did leg work, research and cross-examination of a number of witnesses. All three of these lawyers and most others in the program believe their experience with the government will give them exceller.r background for the time when they enter private practice. "In my mind the one major advantage is that- we're learning how government operates," says" Koppel.
