THE COLLEGE OF LAW

LOCATION OF THE UNIVERSITY.
The University of Florida is located at Gaines-
ville, a city of 8,000 inhabitants, the judicial seat
of Alachua county, in a region noted for its beauty
and healthfulness. The city is the headquarters
of the phosphate industry and is surrounded by a
productive agricultural district. Besides being
the seat of the University of Florida, Gainesville has
a well organized public school of twelve grades, a
public library and beautiful churches of the leading
religious denominations.
Gainesville enjoys excellent railroad facilities, af-
fording her ready communication with every part
of the State by means of the A. C. L., the T. and
J. and the S. A. L. railroads. It is seventy miles
from Jacksonville, forty miles from Ocala, and one
hundred and seventy-seven miles from Tampa.

GENERAL STATEMENT.
In 1891, the American Bar Association declared
that in its opinion it was a part of the highest duty







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


and interest of every civilized State to make pro-
vision, when necessary, for maintaining schools of
law and the thorough legal education of all who are
licensed to practice law. Feeling with its full force
the soundness of this doctrine and being moved by
a desire to discharge this duty on the part of the
State, the State Board of Education and the Board
of Control provided for the opening of the College
of Law in the University of Florida in September,
1909. The advantages to accrue to the State from
having a thorough and systematic course of in-
struction in the common law, with special consid-
eration of the peculiarities and exceptions ap-
plicable in Florida, as a part of its educational
system, are many and evident.
It was the purpose of the Board of Control to
establish in the University of Florida a law school
which, by the quality of its work and the character
of its equipment, would merit and command the
confidence and support of the bench and bar of
the State and would draw within its walls the
young men who will constitute the future bar of
Florida. That the hopes of accomplishing these
results were well founded and that gratifying
progress towards these ends has been made are







COLLEGE OF LAW


shown by the fact that the College of Law, during
the first year of its existence, has registered
thirty-one students, the largest registration ever
made by a law school in Florida in a single year.

THE FACULTY.
The coming year, the work of the College of Law
will be broadened and made more efficient by add-
ing to the faculty another member who will devote
his whole time to the work of the College of Law.
This arrangement makes it possible to give more
thorough instruction in the organization, jurisdic-
tion and pleading and practice of the courts of
Florida, to stress the local law in all subjects of
the curriculum and to give proper attention to the
important but hitherto neglected subject, the Use
of Law Books and Brief Making.
The Faculty, as thus organized, will consist of
four members, three of whom will devote their
entire time to the school. Dean Farrah has had
extended experience in law school work. For
three years he was a member of the law faculty
of the University of Michigan, resigning to accept
the deanship of the Law Department of Stetson
University on its organization in 1900, which posi-







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


tion he also resigned in 1909 to become Dean of
the College of Law of the University of Florida.
Professor Trusler, who is a graduate of the Law
Department of the University of Michigan, has
had several years of experience as a practitioner
of law and also several years of experience as a
teacher of law. He has taught law in the John B.
Stetson University, and has been associated with
the College of Law of the University of Florida
since its organization.
Assistant Professor Kixmiller comes to the Uni-
versity this year with the best of credentials. He
holds the degree of Bachelor of Philosophy from the
College of Liberal Arts of the University of Chi-
cago and the degree of ,Doctor of Jurisprudence
from the School of Law of that University and is
well equipped by nature and training for the work
of a law teacher.
Judge Davis, of the Gainesville Bar, is well
known to the profession and is recognized as one
of the best common law pleaders in the State.
Judge Davis has charge of the difficult and impor-
tant subject of Pleading and Practice at Law in the
Courts of Florida. The subject will be given by a
course of lectures running throughout the year.







COLLEGE OF LAW 11

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION.
Graduates or matriculates of universities or col-
leges and applicants who have completed the
course of study prescribed for the junior high
school in Florida will be admitted to the College of
Law without examination as to preliminary re-
quirements and may become candidates for a de-
gree. Other applicants, if candidates for a degree,
must show that they have had the equivalent of
the junior high school course.
SPECIAL STUDENTS.
Persons who are unable to comply with the above
entrance requirements are allowed to become
special students and pursue a selected course of
study under the guidance of the Dean of the Col-
lege of Law, but without the privilege of being en-
rolled as candidates for a degree. If the entrance
conditions are removed not later than the close of
the first semester of the senior year, such stu-.
dents may, by special vote of the Faculty, become
regular students and candidates for a degree.
ADVANCED STANDING.
Attorneys at law who have been admitted to
practice in the courts of this State and who com-






12 UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA

ply with the above entrance requirements will be
admitted to the senior class without examination.
Ordinarily, no work in law done in other institu-
tions will be accepted towards a degree, unless the
applicant passes satisfactorily the examinations
held in the subjects in the junior year of this de-
partment. By special vote of the Law Faculty
credit may be given towards senior standing, with-
out examination, for work satisfactorily done at
other law schools, but in no case will credit be
given in this way for work not done in residence
at an approved law school.

COURSE OF INSTRUCTION.
The course of instruction in the College of Law
extends through two years of thirty-three weeks
each, exclusive of vacations. The academic year
is divided into two semesters, the first having six-
teen weeks and the second seventeen.
The purpose'of the College of Law is to educate
its students by the study of jurisprudence and to
acquaint them with the foundation principles of
the common law at the same time. "The ability
to think clearly, to reason closely, to appreciate
distinctions quickly, to investigate thoroughly, to







COLLEGE OF LAW 1I

generalize accurately and to state his conclusions
tersely, are prime requisites of the safe counsel-
lor. To secure for the student this power should
be the constant effort of both student and faculty.
The method of instruction in the College of Law
has been planned with these ends in view. This
is largely by the use of text books and selected
cases. Each case is carefully studied- by the stu-
dent and in the class room he is required to an-
alyze it, giving in his own language a clear and con-
cise statement of the essential facts, the issues
involved in the case, the law governing it and
the reasoning of the court for the conclusion
reached. This practice tends "to greater thor-
oughness in reading, greater care in reasoning
and greater accuracy on the part of the student in
the art of expression."
In connection with this case work, the student
studies a well-written text-book on the subject
under consideration which gives him a systematic
summary of the same, more detailed information
concerning the application of the law in particular
instances and an outline of the exceptions to and
limitations upon the general principles consider-
ed in the cases.







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA


Particular stress is placed on the statutory
modifications of the common law in Florida. This
is true in every subject in the curriculum, but it is
especially emphasized in Pleading, Practice and
Evidence, as the course of study is designed to
thoroughly instruct the student in the peculiari-
ties of substantive law and procedure in Florida so
he will be able to enter upon the practice under-
standingly at once.
With these ends in view, the following course of
study has been prepared:

EXAMINATIONS.
The last week of each semester is devoted to ex-
aminations covering the work of the semester.
These examinations are in writing and are rigid
and searching, but ARE NOT NECESSARILY FINAL.
To be considered, prima facie, to have satisfacto-
rily completed a subject, the student must obtain a
minimum grade of 75 per cent. in both classroom
work and examination. During the last week of
the second year, any candidate for a degree may be
required to pass an examination in any or all sub-
jects given in the course and attain a minimum
average grade of 75 per cent. in all subjects in or-
der to be recommended for a degree.
THE UNIVERSITY PRACTICE COURTS.
Thoroughly organized practice courts are regu-
lar features of the course of instruction in the sec-
ond year. Weekly sessions of the courts are held
over which the Judge of the Practice Court pre-
sides. The object of the course in the Practice
Courts is to give the student practical instruction

in pleading and practice at law and in equity and
experience in the preparation and trial of cases.
The work is arranged as follows:
SFIRST.-Cases arising upon prepared statements
of fact are assigned to the second year students
upon which they are to determine what proceed-
ings to bring and how to bring them, issue, serve
and return process, prepare the pleadings and
bring the case to an issue on a question of law.
Each student must take part in one case at law
and one in equity. The case is first heard on the
sufficiency of the form and the structure of the
pleadings and, when these are approved, the issue
of law is argued and decided, the students acting
as attorneys on each side drawing the order, judg-
ment or decree they deem themselves entitled to.
SECOND.-In the second class of cases in the
Practice Court, actual controversies are arranged
and assigned for trial in the Circuit Court as is-
sues of fact. After determining what action to
bring, the students assigned to the case are re-
quired to issue the proper process and prepare
and file the necessary pleadings, subpoena the
witnesses, select the jury, examine and cross-ex-
amine the witnesses and argue the case to the







COLLEGE OF LAW


jury. Each student is required to participate in
the trial of one civil and one criminal case and
must take part in carrying one chancery, one civil
and one criminal case to the Supreme Court for
review.
SPECIAL LECTURES.
Justices R. Fenwick Taylor and Thos. M. Shack-
leford, of the Supreme Court of Florida, will each
deliver six lectures to the students of the College
of Law during the year. The subject of the form-
er will probably be Criminal Law and Procedure
and of the latter, Appellate Procedure and Practice
in Florida. Hon. Frank P. Fleming, Jr., of the
Jacksonville Bar, will deliver one or more lectures
on the subject of Pleading at the Common Law.
Justice R. S. Cockrell, of the Supreme Court of
Florida, Hon. N. P. Bryan, of the Jacksonville Bar,
Judge J. T. Wills, of the Eighth Judicial Circuit,
and Judge W. B. Sheppard, of the United States
Court for the Northern District of Florida, will
each deliver one or more lectures during the year.
THE LAW LIBRARY.
Law books are the working tools of the practic-
ing lawyer. To teach the student how to use
these tools, how to use the digests, encyclopedias

as to teach him the general principles of the law.

to open its doors with a good working library and
has on its shelves the following books: The
Florida Supreme Court Reports, with digest; The
Session Laws of Florida from 1822 to 1909, except
from 1828 to 1834; McClellan's Digest and Duval's

books of reference.

THE MARSHALL DEBATING SOCIETY.
It is important that those who study law and in-
tend to engage in its practice should give attention
to the subject of public speaking. To suppose
that excellence in public speaking and debating is
a gift of nature only and not the result of patient
and persistent effort, is a mistake. Believing in
the truth of these statements, the students in the
College of Law met early last year and organ-
ized a society that would secure to its members
practice in debating and public speaking and ex-
perience in arguing legal questions, as well as
drill in parliamentary law. The society was fit-
tingly named "The Marshall Debating Society,"
in honor of the memory of that distinguished
Southern jurist, John Marshall. The member-
ship and work in the society are limited to stu-
dents in the College of Law, but the Faculty give
all assistance and encouragement to the work that
is possible.

UNIVERSITY PRIVILEGES.
The advantages of the other departments of the
University are open to such students in the College
of Law as desire and are able to accept them.

the professors whose courses they wish to take.

DEGREE.
The degree of Bachelor of Laws (LL. B.) is con-
ferred upon those students who satisfactorily
complete the course of study as previously de-
scribed. Students admitted to advanced stand-
ing may, if they do satisfactorily the work as pre-
scribed by the rules of the department, receive
the degree after one year's residence, but in no
case will the degree be granted unless the candi-
date is in actual residence during all of the second
year.
ADMISSION TO THE BAR.
The graduates of the College of Law are licensed
by the Supreme Court, without examination, to
practice in all the Courts of Florida upon pre-
senting their diplomas, duly issued by the proper
