GENERAL INFORMATION.

The St. Louis Law School was established as a depart-
ment of Washington University in 1867. A class was
graduated in 18()9, and one class each year since. It
occupies exclusively a commodious building, No. 1417
Locust Street, containing all necessary lecture rooms,
offices, library rooms, etc. The library contains more
than 8,000 volumes, devoted solely to the uses of the
school. By the courtesy of The St. Louis Law Library
Association, the students also have access on Saturday to
its library. The special endowment of the Law School
now amounts to $77,000.

The method of instruction is rather by text-books than
by collections of cases, and very little is done in the way
of mere lectures. The daily exercises of the school are
really recitations. The following figures give the enroll-
ment during the last six years ; —

ADMISSION.

Applicants for admission to the school will be expected
to furnish satisfactory evidence of at least a good English

LAW SCHOOL. 121

education. The diploma of any reputable college, acad-
emy 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 admission
is enforced, but the Faculty resei-ve the right to reject any
student not old enough to begin the study of law with ad-
vantage ; 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 exami-
nations of that year will suffice, if creditably passed ; and
those who failed to pass, may, upon further study, apply
again for examination in September, provided their rec-
ord is not too unsatisfactory. The regular examinations
for this purpose will begin on Tuesday, September 25th,
1900, at 9 a. m. at the Law School, 1417 Locust Street.

New applicants for admission as Seniors will be exam-
ined at the same time, and upon the following subjects :
Commercial Paper, Sales, Bailments, Agenc}', Torts,
Criminal Law, and Common Law or Code Pleading.

Admission to the Junior 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 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.

GRADUATION.

Members of the Junior Class, in order to pass into the
Senior Class, must attain an average of r>5 per (tent in
the examinations of the Junior Year. Members of the
Senior Class in order to be admitted to the linal exam-
ination for the degree of LL.IJ., must attain an average
of 05 per cent in all the examinations of both years.
The above examinations are all written and are conducted
by the Faculty.

The examination for the degree of LL.B. is prescribed
and conducted by a committee of the Advisory and Ex-
amining Board. This examination is also written and
occupies about one week. The Board is composed of
leading members of the judiciary and bar of St. Louis,
selected by the Directors of the University. Each senior
is required to present, on or before May 15, an original
thesis upon a legal topic selected by the Faculty. The
subject of the thesis for the class of 181)i) was: "The
Police Power; Its Legitimate Scope and Limitations.'*

The degree of LL.B. conferred by the University
entitles the holder to admission to the Bar of Missouri
without further examination.

124 WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY.



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 eases assigned to
them, and to conduct them through all the stipes of a
legal or equitable suit before trying the issue in the
Moot-Court. Members of the Senior Class may be
appointed to sit as Associate Justices, and required to
write opinions. 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 dot^trines 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, containing
the Statements of Facts, Briefs and Opinions.

FEES AND EXPENSES.

The annual fee for attendance in either class is $80,
payable in advance. There are no extra charges of
any kind. No reduction will be made from the term

School is believed to have been not over $20 per month,
while some have obtained it as low as $15.

Those who find it necessary to earn a part of their liv-
ing in other pursuits while taking the course can do so by
lengthening that course from two to three years, taking
a proportionate part of the class-work (to be designated
by the Faculty according to circumstances of each case)
in each year. Every facility will be extended to them for
such an arrangement ; and the charge for tuition in such
cases will only be for two years ; but no other diminu-
tion of the daily requirements of attendance and study
will be sanctioned, except in the case of special students
not candidates for a degree.

The expense of text-books for the entire course, if pur-
chased new and of the latest editions, is about $75. This
sum may be materially reduced by the purchase of second-
hand books which may be usually had in considerable
variety. All the books used in recitation may be found
in the Library and can be studied there free of charge,
but not taken from the room .
