HISTORICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE.

The Law School was founded in the year 1867 by
the united efforts and counsels of the Directors of
W^ashington University and of members of tlie profes-
sion 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 requir-
ed as a condition for admittance to the bar, they re-
solved to found a school which should give the best
and most complete course of legal study possible with-
in two years, and should be so constructed 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 depart-
ments, appointed the Dean and Faculty, and has al-
ways 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 Ex-
amining Board, composed of Judges of Federal and
State Courts and members of the St. Louis Bar, dis-
tinguished for their talents and general and legal eru-

dition, 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 absolute impartiality of the
result; the papers being distinguished by numbers
only, and the name of the candidate represented by
each number being unknown to the examiner. The pa-
pers of a candidate must reach the fixed standard ot
merit required by the committee or he will fail to pass,
without even his name being known to tfiem. Those
who reach that standard are recommended to the
University Directors for the degree of Bachelor ot
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 i6, 1867, it has now
been in successful and unbroken operation for thirty-
one 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 ses-
sion the Appellate, Circuit and District Courts of the
United States, taking cognizance of questions in Ad-
miralty and Revenue Law, as well as the causes at
Common Law and Equity ; also the Circuit and Crim-
inal Courts of the State, and the St. Louis Court of
Appeals — in one or other of which are constantly il-

lustrated the learning and practice of every depart-
ment of American jurisprudence.

ENDOWMENT AND EDIFICE.

To insure the perpetual maintenance of its course,
by the generous public spirit of a few friends, an en-
dowment now amounting to seueniy-seven thousana
dollars^ has been given, and invested in good securi-
ties in the name of Washington University, in trust
for the perpetual 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 Locust St., standing upon its
own grounds, with a frontage of one hundred feet up-
on Lucas Place, the most convenient location in the
city for such an institution. All the lecture and reci-
tation rooms of the various classes, the libraries.
Dean's office, society rooms, etc., are concentrated Jn
this building, and the best accommodations for stu-
dents 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 stu-
dents. The Library now contains more than 8,000
bound volumes. It belongs to the school and is de-

voted exclusively to the use of the students. By the
courtesy of the Law Library Association they have al-
so access on Saturdays to the Bar Library at the Court
House, containing a very complete collection oi
American, British, Scotch, 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 ttie
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 lo
reject any student not old enough to begin tne study
of law with advantage ; and no student will receive the
degree of Bachelor of Laws before the completion of

In the case of candidates for the Senior Class who

examinations of that year will suffice, if creditably

further study, apply again for examination in Septem-
ber, provided their record is not too unsatisfactory.

of study ; or those who take the entire course without
seeking a degree. The last mentioned class will be
