116 WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY.



HISTORICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE.

The Law School was founded in the year 1867 by the
united efforts and counsels of the Directors of Washing-
ton University and of members of the profession actually
in practice or then on the bench in the city of St. Louis.
Feeling the importance of more thorough education in the
Law than is usually required as a condition for admit-
tance to the bar, they resolved to found a school which
should give the best and most complete course of legal
study possible within two years, and should be so con-
ducted as to make its diploma an indisputable proof of
the attainment of a high and uniform standard, without
reference to numbers or to the support of the school from
tuition fees. With that end in view the organization
was adopted which has ever since been maintained. The
University adopted the school as one of its departments,
appointed the Dean and Faculty, and has always provided
for its maintenance and has granted its degrees to the
graduates. But the oversight of the course of study
and the examination of candidates for such degrees were
committed to an Advisory and Examining Board, com-
posed of Judges of Federal and State Courts and mem-
bers of the St. Louis Bar, distinguished for their talents
and general and legal erudition, by whose committees
those examinations are always conducted, and whose
award is conclusive. These committees prepare
the questions upon each topic, and pass upon the
candidates* answers, under a system which secures the



Digitized by VjOOQ IC



LAW SCHOOL. 117

absolute impartiality of the result ; the papers being dis-
tinguished by numbers only, and the name of the candi-
date represented by each number being unknown to the
examiner. The papers of a candidate must reach the
fixed standard of merit required by the committee or he
will fail to pass, without even his name being known to
them. Those who reach that standard are recommended
to the University Directors for the degree of Bachelor of
Laws (which is by law an admission to the bar).

In consequence of this organization the school is known
alike as the Law Department of Washington University,
and as the St. Louis Law School. First opened to
students September 16, 1867, it has now been in suc-
cessful and unbroken operation for twenty-nine years.
In the city of St. Louis, during nine months in the year,
besides the ordinary municipal and inferior courts, there
are in almost uninterrupted session the Appellate, Circuit
and District Courts of the United States, taking cognizance
of questions in Admiralty and Revenue Law, as well as
of causes at Common Law and Equity ; also the Circuit
and Criminal Courts of the State, and the St. Louis
Court of Appeals — in one or other of which are con-
stantly illustrated the learning and practice of every
department of American jurisprudence.

ENDOWMENT AND EDIFICE.

To insure the perpetual maintenance of its course, by
the generous public spirit of a few friends, an endow-
ment now amounting to seventy -seven thousand dollars
has been given, and invested in good securities in the
name of Washington University, in trust for the per-



Digitized by VjOOQ IC



118 WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY.

petual support of the Law Department ; the interest of
such fund to be used for that purpose. It is hoped that
this fund will be enlarged by other gifts.

The Directora of Washington University have formally
dedicated to the use of the Law Department, rent free,
forever, the building now occupied by the Law School.
This is a large and commodious building of three stories,
No. 1417 Lucas Place, standing upon its own grounds,
with a frontage of one hundred feet upon Lucas Place, the
most convenient location in the city for such an institu-
tion. All the lecture and recitation rooms of the various
classes, the libraries, Dean's office, society rooms, etc.,
are concentrated in this building, and the best accommo-
dations for students may be found in the part of the city
surrounding it. The principal library room is 58 by 60
feet in size and is open every day and evening for the use
of students, many of whom spend all their study hours
here. Considerable additions have been made to the
Library, which now contains more than 7,000 bound
volumes. The Library belongs to the school and is
devoted exclusively to the use of the students. By the
courtesy of the Law Library Association they have also
access on Saturdays to the Bar Library at the Court
House, containing a very complete collection of American,
British, Scotch, Irish, and Colonial Reports and treatises.
Rooms are also fitted up as reading and conversation
rooms for students.

ADMISSION.

Applicants for admission to the school will be expected
to furnish satisfactory evidence of good character and of .

LAW SCHOOL. inj

at least a good English education. The diploma of any
reputable college, academy or high school will be received
as evidence of the latter ; or the applicant may pass an
examination to test his ability to read law-books intelli-
gently.

No fixed i-ule as to the age of applicants for admission
is enforced, but the Faculty reserve the right to reject
any student not old enough to begin the study of law with
advantage; and no student will receive the degree of
Bachelor of Laws before the completion of his twenty-
first year.

Candidates for the Senior Class will also be retjuired to
pass examination on the studies of Junior year. To those
who have previously been members of the Junior Class,
the examinations of that year will suffice, if creditably
passed ; and those who failed to pass, may, upon further
study, apply again for examination in September, pro-
vided their record is not too unsatisfactory. The ret^u-
lar examination for tbis purpose will be held on Tuesday,
Sept. 2l8t, 1897, at 9 a. m., at the Law School, 1417
Lucas Place ; and new applicants for admission as Seniors
are requested to attend it, if possible, so as to begin the
year's work with the class. Students of both classes are
advised for their own advantage to enter on the first day
of the course, or as soon thereafter as possible.

Admission to the Junior Class may be had at any time
during the year; to the Senior Class, after the examina-
tion in September, it will be granted only upon special ex-
amination, at a time fixed by the Dean upon application
not later than the first week of school after the Christmas
holidays; and no person will be admitted a member of

120 WASHINGTON TNIVERSITY.

the Senior Class as a candidate for a degree after that
time ; nor at any time upon any certificate of attainments,
or previous study or attendance elsewhere.

But the privileges of the school will not be confined to
those who are candidates for a degree, or wish to com-
plete the entire course. Members of the bar of any
State, who wish to study particular branches of law, will
be admitted at any time for that purpose ; and so also
will students who can take but a partial course of study ;
or those who take the entire course without seeking a
degree. The last mentioned class will be expected to pay
full tuition ; to the others reduction will be made accord-
ing to the circumstances of each case, but not exceeding
one-half the regular tuition fee for each term. Any per-
son coming within either of the foregoing classes, and
possessing the general qualifications mentioned above,
may attend the lectures of either class upon being en-
rolled in such class, and engaging to comply with the
current regulations of the Law School. Such enrollment
will entitle him to the privileges of the Library, and to
attend all lectures and other exercises in both classes
but not to be examined for graduation, nor to compete
for a prize essay or degree.

COURSE OF STUDY.

The course for the degree of LL.B. may still, as here-
tofore, be completed in two annual terms, each of which
(excluding the recess of about ten days at Christmas)
occupies more than eight months in continuous study,
beginning on the fourth Wednesday of September of each
year. The lectures arc given at H :4o to 9:45 a. m., and

MOOT-COURT.

A Moot-Court is held weekly throughout seven months
of the year. It is conducted, as nearly as possible, with
the forms of an ordinary court of justice, and students
are expected to draw pleadings in the cases assigned to
them, and to conduct them through all the stages of a
legal or equitable suit before trying the issues in tbe
Moot-Court. Two members of the Senior Class may be
appointed to sit as Associate Justices, and required lo
write opinions ; the Dean deciding in case of a difference
between them. The cases will be selected to illustrate
the subjects studied by the classes and will be made so
far as possible, means of instruction, not only in practice,
but in the doctrines of the law. Both classes will be
assigned to argue cases in these courts. The Moot
Court Record is a weekly published by the School, con-
taining the Statements of Facts, Briefs, and Opinions.

Opportunity will also be given for the organization of
Club Courts among the students, with every facility for
practice in the preparation and argument of cases, and
for appeals from these to the Moot-Court, if desired.
