Abstract:
The author discussed the process that inactive lawyers undergo to have their license to practice reset to active status and the suspension of their license lifted. Reasons Hunt included for a law license becoming inactive ranged from the failure to pay State Bar membership, to complete the requisite CLE courses, or the amount of time for inactivity (which can range from one to seven years). The author also discussed measures attorneys can take to reinstate a license, such as paying membership fees, completing a set number of CLE courses, or the measures necessary for a lapse of more than seven years (which entails re-taking and passing the Bar Exam).

Abstract:
Despite there being more women at work in socially prestigious positions—managerial and professional—and advanced degrees such as law, a wage gap still exists. One of the reasons Siebert speculated involved the type of practice that female lawyers are more likely to enter (government), since this type offers a lower salary and an ability to balance work and family that leaves female lawyers working less hours and fewer years. However, further examination of the issue concluded that discrimination and harassment, leading many female lawyers to leave the profession before they can attain earning power comparable to their male counterparts, are playing a greater role.

Bryant’s account centered around a type of bicycle ride completed by NC lawyers as part of funding raising efforts for the MS Society. What made this bicycle ride eventful includes a description of the efforts that yielded the highest turnout of participants yet by 2007, the recording breaking amount of donations recorded, and profiles of participating cyclists such as Jenny Bradley, who was inspired to participate because of her father’s battle with the disease. As conclusion for the account were highlights from the author’s own participation in the event that include the number of years he has participated and the friend whose battle lost with MS inspired him to begin taking part in this event.
