The Chancellor's Court.

The Chancellor has jurisdiction in almost all causes, whether civil,
spiritual, or criminal, in which scholars or privileged persons resident
within the precinct of the University are parties. For the exercise of
it a Court is holden every Friday during Term in the Apodyterium of
the Convocation House, in which the Vice-Chancellor is the presiding
Judge, and the two Proctors of the University may, if they please, sit
as assessors. But for the better despatch of business the V ice-Chan-
cellor appoints some Doctor or Bachelor of Civil Law to sit with him as
ASSESSOR and to act as Judge for him in his absence. The annual
stipend of such Assessor is ,£40. The practice of the Court in all cases
used to be nearly the same as the practice of the Court of Admiralty :
but by new Rules, made in pursuance of the Act 25 and 26 Vict. c. 26.
s. 12, the form of procedure in civil cases, since March 1, 1865, very
much resembles the form in County Courts. Appeals from it may be
made, first to the House of Congregation, then to the House of Convo-
cation, (for which purpose Delegates to hear appeals are annually
appointed in each House,) and finally, if the three judgments differ, to
the Queen in Chancery.

The Registear of the Court is appointed by the Chancellor.
He must be a Master of Arts or a Bachelor of Civil Law. Besides the

duty of registering the several Acts and Orders of the Court, it is part
of his office to attend at and to record the admissions of Principals to
the several Halls, and to perform all manner of business, whether of
contentious or voluntary jurisdiction, arising from the authority of thu

The Public Orator.

The office of Public Orator was first permanently established in 1564,
the previous custom being that the Chancellor or Vice-Chancellor
selected some fit person on each occasion to perform the duties attached
to it. It is his business to write letters and addresses and to make
orations in the name of the University upon public occasions, to present
those on whom the honorary degree of Master of Arts is to be conferred,
and to deliver the annual Creweian Oration alternately with the Pro-
fessor of Poetry. He is one of those appointed to adjudge several of



12 OFFICERS OF THE UNIVERSITY.

the University Prizes. He must be a Member of Convocation, and is
elected by that body. The stipend originally assigned to the office was
a yearly pension of twenty imblos, X'C, 1.5s. 4
