By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsleatures Wriler Gobbledygook in some legal papers isn't contrived to mystify or confound clients. A great many lawyers simply do not know how to phrase a sentence, soys Judith T. Younger, the new dean of Syracuse Law School. In fact, a great m a n y students who enter law schools are illiterate, insists Mrs. Younger, a pretty, petite 40-year-old brunette, one of five women law deans in the United Slates. Writing and verbal skills should be basic tools of lawyers, she explained, and she aims to do lomething about it. "Deans often get themselves hot water by announcing radical Changes in law schools without consulting their faculty all. running really a faculty law mat- can not wi'ite a sentence clearly Hopes To Improve Image Of Sisters LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Sister Elizabeth's eyes flash fire when someone says nuns should be meek and docile and belong in a convent. "The public image of women in religious vocations is in very bad shape." she says. Elizabeth, 30. like many of today's nuns doesn't wear religious garb or live in a convent. She believes the sisterhood is an "attractive, viable lifestyle in which a young person can use her creativity and talents to serve God in society." Nuns -- usually thought of as teachers or nurses -- can work in politics, orison reform or help the aged, she says. "Sisters arc usually stereotyped -- a la Audrey Hep burn in The Nun's Story.' now being replayed eternally on the late, late show." she said. -- after school is ter. But I do feel that law schools must place more cur- ricuiar time and effort on writing and verbal skills, Many students haven't the foggiest notion of basic grammatical concepts. Many grammatical and with style, but neither can they utter one." In law schools the tendency is to say that these things should have been taught in first grade, and she agrees . CORRECT ERRORS 'But if ii isn't taught, we must teach them or at least try to correct the worst errors." The elements of good legal writing should be the same as good literature, she points out. Law is'a branch of letters, nol a science. Students should also learn from faculty how to use the Ii brary. As il is now, she says only a select group of students learn or they learn from other students. i\t Syracuse lhe\ lave the optx)rtunity through a computer locate a book in "Or put on saintly pedestals -- a carryover from immigrant grandparents -- ignored as 'out of it.' patronized as the 'good sisters,' or. more recently, looked upon in dismay and confusion us communities tried desperately to integrate contemporary renewal into traditional forms." IMPROVE IMAGE But, she added in an interview in her modest apartment- office here, 'I think there is real hope for improving the im age of sisters." Noting t h a t there arc 140.000 ·women in American Catholie orders, she argued. "That's a lot of womanpower. 1 d like to make their work more visible and believable. If people can look to them as leaders in the community then it becomes more possible for them to have some impact both in the church what she founder of ·nd'in society. She practices preaches.

Lawyers' opportunities exis i business, banking, govern ment, corporate legal deparl menls. politics at every level in addition to private practice but competition for law schof admission is keen -- there ar at least Ift applicants for ever available place. She encourage prc law students not to be dis couraged. APPLICANTS "Different admission com mitlces find different subjcctiv 'actors important. Between ai :cptances at the top and the r lection floor there is a hi middle a r e a of applicant where discietion might be ex ersised. One set of admittin officers might choose the cai lain of a college cheer Icarti squad, another might prefer th person who had involved L '~ self in community action pr g r a m s i n underprivilegec reas." Mrs. Younger has had a wic variety of experience. Aft graduating No. 1 in her cla both in high school and fro Cornell University School of 1 dustria! and Labor Relatio where she was on scholarshi she hoped to be a managemc or union contract negotiotor. She began a job with a small electrical manufacturing concern. "My first contract negolialion resulted in a five-week strike." she explained, good humoredly. "If I were to go further in labor relations, I decided, I needed a law degree." At New York University she was one of two women in her freshman claw. The other dropped out. "Now 25 per cent are likely to be women, · trend that lUrtcd during the Vietnam ar when law schools became rvous and encouraged women come to classes." FEMALE STUDENTS She expects her first classes Syracuse will be 22 per cent male. The university lias not perienced the serious and rsitios and this year its en- ntimting deficits of other uni- "nient is up five per cent. 3 After law school Mrs. Young- had accepled a "very presti- HIR clerkship" with Federal idge Edward Weinfeld.
