112 WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY.



HISTORICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE.

The Law School was founded in the year 1867 by the
united efforts and counsels of the Directors of Wash-
ington 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 con-
dition for admittance 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 constructed as to make its diploma an in-
disputable proof of the attainment of a high and uni-
form 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 mainte-
nance and has granted its degrees to the graduates.
But the oversight of the course of study and the ex-
amination of candidates for such degrees were commit-
ted to an Advisory and Examining Board, composed
of Judges of Federal and State Courts and members 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 conslusive. These committees prepare the questions
upon each topic, and pass upon the candidates'



Digitized by VjOOQ IC



LAW SCHOOL. 113

ansTviers, under a system which secures the absolute
impartiality of the result; the papers being distin-
guished by numbers only, and the name of the candidate
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 recom-
mended to the University Directors for the degree of
Batchelor 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 successful and unbroken operation for thirty 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 the 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 constantly illustrated the learning and practice of
ever>' 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 griven, and invested in good securities in the
name of Washington University, in trust for the per-
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 Directors of Washington University have form-
ally 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 owe hundred feet upon
Lucas Place, the most convenient location in the city
for such an institution. 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 accommodations 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.
The Library now contains more than 7,000 bound
volumes. It belongs to the school and is devoted ex-
clusively 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, Scot(ch, Irish, and Colonial Reports and
treatises.

ADMISSION.



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

No fixed rule as to the age of applicants for admis-
sion 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.

In the case of candidates for the Senior Class who
have previously been members of the Junior Class, the
examinations of that year will sufflcie, 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 regu-
lar examinations for this purpose will begin on Tues-
day, Sept. 20th, 1898, at 9 a. m., at the Law School,
1417 Lucas Place.

New applicants for admission as Seniors will be ex-
amined at the same time, and upon the following sub-
jects: — Commercial Paper, Sales, Bailments, Agency,
Torts, Criminal Law, and Common Law or Code
Pleading.

116 WASHINGTON DNIVBBSITT.

Admission to the Janior Class may be held at any
time during the year; to the Senior Class, after the
examination in September, it will be granted only
upon special examination, 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 the Senior Claims 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
complete 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 according to the circumstances of each case,
but not exceeding one-half the regular tuition fee for
each year. Any person coming within either of the
foregoing classes, and possessing the general qualifi-
cations mentioned above, may attend the lectures of
either class upon being enrolled in such class, and en-
gaging 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.
