■ FIND AN ADVENTIST LAWYER — The GC Office of General Counsel (OGC) has launched a new web site to make it easier for church members to find Adventist lawyers in different parts of the world and to share pertinent legal updates with the Adventist legal community. The site now has the names and areas of practice for about 1,000 Adventist lawyers all over the world but Kyte anticipates much more to come because lawyers can now submit their information anytime. The web site will also have articles, news releases, case updates and a roster for law students to register included on the site.
