DREYFUS COUNSEL IN UNION

MAITRE LABORI, FIRST LAWYER OF FRANCE, TO MAKE BRIEF AD. DRESS AT 8.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Maitre Fernand Labori, the renowned French lawyer, will give a short address in the Union tonight at 8 o'clock.

Maitre Labori, not only an eminent scholar and author, but also the chief counsel in many epoch-making cases, was born on April 18, 1860 in Reims. His preliminary education there was followed by two years of study in Germany, England and finally Paris, where he began his career. In 1884 he was admitted to the bar. During his life in Paris he has figured in such cases as the Dreyfus Appeal and the Zola and Humbert cases.

His great 12-volume book on French law, "Repertoire Encyclopedique du Droit Francais," is one of the best authorities on the subject. Among other offices Maitre Labori holds those of Avocat a la cour d'appel de Paris and Depute de l'arrondissement de Fontainebleu.

Maitre Labori is to speak in English. The Union extends a cordial invitation to all men in the Law School, whether members of the Union or not.
