TO ALL BODIES OF ELDERS IN THE UNITED STATES BRANCH TERRITORYRe: Experienced Attorneys and Paralegals Needed at Bethel
Experienced, mature, spiritually-qualified licensed attorneys and paralegals are neededto assist with the work at Bethel. (Phil. 1:7) There is a particular need for those who have experience in litigation, corporate matters, or real estate transactions. We are hoping to locate several experienced attorneys and paralegals who have exceptional analytical, research, and writing abilities.
If there are any publishers in your congregation who may meet these needs, please encouragethem to submit an Application for Temporary Volunteer Program (A-19) along withtheir résumé to the United States branch office through the Congregation Service Committee assoon as possible. The letter to temporary volunteer applicants (A-20) and the letter to those applyingfor theocratic schools, Bethel service, or other forms of special full-time service (A-63)should also be provided. This will allow the branch office to review their application and possibly invite them to work temporarily for one week, three months, or more in the Legal Department.
Thereafter, it may be that an invitation to serve at Bethel would be extended to them.We trust that you will use discretion in approaching publishers regarding volunteering toassist the organization in the above way. Please note that we are not encouraging individuals to pursue higher education or university degrees to obtain skills related to legal matters. (w13 10/15pp. 15-16 pars. 13-14)
