THE COLLEGE OF LAW
LOCATION OF THE UNIVERSITY.
The University of Florida is located at Gainesville, 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 surround-
ed by a productive agricultural district. Besides being the
seat of the University of Florida, Gainesville has a well or-
ganized public school of twelve grades, a public library and
beautiful churches of the leading religious denominations.
Gainesville enjoys excellent railroad facilities, affording
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. rail-
roads. It is seventy miles from Jacksonville, forty miles
from Ocala, and one hundred and seventy-seven miles from
In 1891, the American Bar Association declared that in
its opinion it was a part of the highest duty and interest of
every civilized State to make provision, 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
instruction in the common law, with special consideration of
the peculiarities and exceptions applicable 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
5 UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
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 shown by the fact that the College of Law, during the
second year of its existence, has registered forty-two stu-
dents, the largest registration ever made by a law school in
Florida in a single year.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION.
Graduates or matriculates of universities or colleges and
applicants who have completed the course of study pre-
scribed for the junior high school in Florida will be admitted
to the College of Law without examination as to preliminary
requirements and may become candidates for a degree.
Other applicants, if candidates for a degree, must show that
they have had the equivalent of the junior high school
Persons who are unable to comply with the above en-
trance requirements are allowed to become special students
and pursue a selected course of study under the guidance of
the Dean of the College of Law, but without the privilege of
being enrolled 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 students may, by special
vote of the Faculty, become regular students and candidates
for a degree.
Attorneys at law who have been admitted to practice in
COLLEGE OF LAW
the courts of this State and who comply with the above en-
trance requirements will be admitted to the senior class
Ordinarily, no work in law done in other institutions will
be accepted towards a degree, unless the applicant passes
satisfactorily the examinations held in the subjects in the
junior year of this department. By special vote of the Law
Faculty, however, credit may be given towards senior stand-
ing, without 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
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 sixteen weeks and the second seventeen.
The purpose of the College of Law is to educate its stu-
dents 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 generalize accurately and to state his conclusions tersely,
are prime requisites of the safe counselor." 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 student and in the class room he is required
to analyze it, giving in his own language a clear and concise
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
iU UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
thoroughness in reading, greater care in reasoning and
greater accuracy on the part of the student in the art of
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 considered in the
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 Plead-
ing, Practice and Evidence, as the course of study is de-
signed 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 understandingly at once.
With these ends in view, the following course of study
has been prepared:

The text-books announced are subject to change.
The last week of each semester is devoted to examinations
covering the work of the semester. These examinations are
in writing and are rigid and searching, but ARE NOT NECES-
SARILY FINAL. To be considered, prima facie, to have satis-
factorily completed a subject, the student must obtain a
minimum grade of 75 per cent. in both class-room work and
examination. During the last week of the second year, any
candidate for a degree may be required to pass an exami-
nation in any or all subjects 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 regular fea-
tures of the course of instruction in the second year.
Weekly sessions of the courts are held over which the Judge
of the Practice Court presides. The object of the course in
the Practice Courts is to give the student practical instruc-
tion in pleading and practice at law and in equity and ex-
perience in the preparation and trial of cases. The work is
arranged as follows:
FIRT.-Cases arising upon prepared statements of fact
are assigned to the second year students upon which they
COLLEGE OF LAW
are to determine what proceedings 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,
judgment 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 issues of fact. After determin-
ing what action to bring, the students assigned to the case
are required to issue the proper process and prepare and
file the necessary pleadings, subpoena the witnesses, select
the jury, examine and cross-examine the witnesses and
argue the case to the jury. Each student is required to par-
ticipate 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.
THE LAW LIBRARY.
Law books are the working tools of the practicing lawyer.
To teach the student how to use these tools, how to use the
digests, encyclopedias and reports, is as much the work of
the law school as to teach him the general principles of the
The College of Law was fortunate in being able 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 Compilation of the Laws of Florida; Revised
Statutes of 1892 and the General Statutes of 1906; The
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
Northwestern, Southwestern, Northeastern, Southeastern,
Atlantic, Pacific and Southern Reporters; The American
Decisions, American Reports and American State Reports,
with digests; The Lawyers Reports Annotated, with di-
gests; The United States Supreme Court Reports, with di-
gests; The New York Common Law and Chancery Reports,
with digests; The New York Court of Appeals Reports, the
Reports of the Supreme Courts of Michigan and Massachu-
setts and the New Jersey Equity Reports to the Reporters;
The Reprint of the English Reports, the Encyclopedia of
Law and Procedure and more than two hundred of the lead-
ing text-books and books of reference.
The Legislature of 1911 has given the Library two ad-
ditional sets of Florida State Reports and has also appro-
priated one thousand dollars for the purchase of new books.
THE MARSHALL DEBATING SOCIETY.
It is important that those who study law and intend 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. Be-
lieving in the truth of these statements, the students in the
College of Law met early the first year and organized a so-
ciety that would secure to its members practice in debating
and public speaking and experience in arguing legal ques-
tions, as well as drill in parliamentary law. The society
was fittingly named "The Marshall Debating Society," in
honor of the memory of that distinguished Southern jurist,
John Marshall. The membership and work in the society
are limited to students in the College of Law, but the Fac-
ulty give all assistance and encouragement to the work that
The advantages of the other departments of the Univer-
COLLEGE OF LAW
sity are open to such students in the College of Law as de-
sire and are able to accept them. Courses in Constitutional
and Political History, International Law, Political Economy,
Logic, Rhetoric and English Composition are particularly
recommended to law students. No extra charge will be
made for such courses, but students in the College of Law
will be permitted to take them only with the consent of the
Law Faculty and of the professors whose courses they wish
The degree of Bachelor of Laws (LL. B.) is conferred
upon those students who satisfactorily complete the course
of study as previously described. Students admitted to ad-
vanced standing may, if they do satisfactorily the work as
prescribed by the rules of the department, receive the de-
gree after one year's residence, but in no case will the de-
gree be granted unless the candidate 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 presenting their diplomas, duly
issued by the proper authorities and upon furnishing satis-
factory evidence that they are twenty-one years of age and
of good moral character.
TUITION.-A tuition fee of twenty dollars a semester, pay-
able in advance, will be charged all students.
REGISTRATION FEE.-An annual registration fee of five
dollars will be charged all students.
DAMAGE DEPOSIT.-In order to secure the University
property against damage, the sum "of five dollars ($5.00)
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
must be deposited at registration. Damage known to have
been done by any student will be charged to his individual
account; all other damages will be prorated among the stu-
At the end of the scholastic year, this deposit, less the
amount deducted, will be returned to the student.
INFIRMARY FEE.-An infirmary fee of three dollars
($3.00) will be charged each student residing on the compus,
the proceeds of which will go towards defraying the salary
of a resident nurse. This will secure the student, in case
of illness, the privilege of a bed in the infirmary which oc-
cupies Section A of Thomas Hall; the services of the nurse,
and attention from the University physician, E. R. Flint, M.
D. (Harvard). The payment of this fee does not increase the
University charges made in former years, as a like amount
is deducted from the cost of board and lodging for the first
BOARD AND LODGING.-Board and lodging will be fur-
nished by the University at a cost of fifty-seven dollars
($57.00) for the first semester, not including the Christmas
vacation, and sixty dollars ($60.00) for the second semester.
These sums must be paid at the beginning of each semester.
Board and lodging will be furnished only by the semester and not
by the month. In very exceptional cases, arrangements
may be made to pay in three instalments, payable in advance.
This includes meals in the dining-hall and room (with heat,
light and access to a bath-room), furnished as stated below.
The dining-hall will be closed during the Christmas holidays.
RooM WITHOUT BOARD.-Students occupying a room in
the Dormitories but not taking meals in the dining-hall will
be charged $20.00 per semester for lodging.
