GENERAL INFORMATION
The College of Law, founded in 1909, began its work in the Thomas Hall Dormi-
tory for men under the deanship of Albert J. Farrah, a graduate of the University of
Michigan, who served from 1909 until 1912.
Following the administration of Dean Farrah, Thomas W. Hughes served as Dean
from 1912 until 1915. The Law Building, erected in 1914, was one of the first perma-
nent units on the campus.
Harry R. Trusler, also a graduate of the University of Michigan, was appointed
to the deanship in 1915 and served in that capacity until 1947. During his administra-
tion the College of Law was accredited by the New York State Board of Regents in
1917, admitted to membership in the Association of American Law Schools in 1920,
and recognized as an "A" school by the American Bar Association in 1925.
The College of Law was opened to women students in 1925, and in 1933 the re-
quirements for admission were increased to require an academic degree.
In September of 1941, the entire plant of the College of Law was dedicated and
named in the memory of Nathan Philemon Bryan, Chairman of the Board of Control at
the time of the founding of the College of Law, and former United States Senator and
United States Circuit Judge. Also in 1941 the Law Library was built.
During the summer of 1948 the building which has housed the College of Law since
1914 was completely renovated. A new office suite was added for the Dean and addi-
tional offices for members of the faculty were provided. In the spring of 1950 con-
struction of a new wing was completed, which provides a library reading room seating
approximately one hundred and fifty students, a courtroom-auditorium with a seating
capacity of approximately two hundred and fifty, and a suite of offices for the Uni-
versity of Florida Law Review.
The aim of the College is to impart a thorough, scientific, and practical knowledge
of the law. It aims to develop keen, efficient lawyers, conversant with the ideals and
traditions of the profession. Its policy is characterized by the emphasis of practice as
well as theory; pleading as well as historical perspective; skill in brief making, as well
as in giving legal information.
ADMISSIONS
Students without previous law school study are admitted at the beginning of the
first and second semesters, but are not admitted to the summer session.

PROCEDURE FOR ADMISSION
Applicants for admission to the College of Law are required to file a preliminary
application with the University Registrar on or before August 16 for the first semester,
December 27 for the second semester. It will be impossible to consider applications
received after these dates.
Upon receipt of the preliminary application, the Registrar will furnish final applica-
tion forms. No applicant will be admitted until he has filed a complete transcript of
his record from each law school, college or university attended (other than the Uni-
versity of Florida), and a written statement concerning his previous attendance at other
law schools and, if he has attended another law school, a certificate from the Dean
thereof that he is in good standing at that institution.















COLLEGE OF LAW


REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION
Beginning Students. Except as hereinafter stated, applicants for admission must
have received a degree in arts or sciences in an accredited college or university.
Veterans. Under existing legislation the College will continue to waive the
last two semesters of preparatory college work required for entrance in all instances
where the applicant has completed all preparatory college work required for ad-
mission except two semesters or less of study in preparatory subjects and where
such applicant has failed to complete his or her last two semesters or less of pre-
paratory study by reason of his or her having been inducted into any branch of the
armed forces of the United States during or after the month of January, 1940, and
where such completed work meets the standards of the Association of American
Law Schools and the American Bar Association. (For information as to procedure
necessary to qualify for the various types of educational benefits available to vet-
erans of World War II, consult the University Catalog.)
Qualitative Requirement. An applicant who has not received a degree must
have maintained a scholastic average of C or higher on all college work undertaken.
Advanced Standing. A student wishing to transfer from another accredited law
school who, at the time of beginning his study of law, qualified for admission to this
College under the above stated requirements for beginning students and who has main-
tained a scholastic average of C or higher on all previous law school work undertaken,
may apply for admission with advanced standing. Courses completed with a grade of
C or higher in other accredited law schools will be accepted for credit up to but not
exceeding a total of thirty hours.
In no case will credit be given for correspondence courses or other work not done
in residence in an accredited law school.
In no case will a person who has received a law degree from an accredited law
school be admitted as a candidate for the LL.B. degree.

FEES AND EXPENSES
Although expenses vary considerably with individual students, an unmarried Florida
student attending the College of Law should anticipate expenses of at least $550.00 per
semester estimated as follows: Registration fee $75.00; books and supplies $50.00; laun-
dry and cleaning $35.00; room $90.00; board $200.00; incidental expenses $100.00.
Non-Florida students are charged a registration fee of $250.00 per semester instead of
the $75.00 fee charged Florida students. (Consult the University Catalog for details as
to the classification of students as Florida or non-Florida students.)
Late registration increases the registration fee $5.00; this increased fee will not be
waived for any reason.
A graduation fee of $10.00 to cover the cost of the candidates diploma and,
rental of cap and gown, is payable at the time of the filing of the candidate's applica-
tion for graduation.
Consult the University Catalog for the time and place of the payment of fees and
expenses.













CATALOG 1952-1953


HOUSING
All communications or inquiries concerning housing, applications, deposit fees, and
rent payments in University Housing facilities should be sent to the Director of Housing,
University of Florida, Gainesville. A student may make his own arrangements direct
with the property-owner for off-campus accommodations in private housing.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Student Employment.-The faculty of the College of Law recommends that stu-
dents refrain from taking part-time employment during the first two semesters of study
except in cases of absolute necessity. Consult the University Catalog for information
concerning part-time employment at the University.
Scholarships.-No scholarship funds are available exclusively for law students. Con-
sult the University Catalog for information as to scholarship funds which may be made
available to law students.
Loan Funds.-The Senior Law Loan Fund, available to needy seniors in the College
of Law, was established by the Law Class of 1938 and has been increased by subsequent
gifts. Applications should be made to the Dean of the College of Law.
Consult the University Catalog for information as to other loan funds which may
be made available to law students.
SUMMER SESSION
The College of Law conducts a summer session for students who have had one or
more semesters of law study. Beginning students are not admitted to the summer ses-
sion. Detailed information as to dates and courses is given in the Bulletin of the Sum-
mer Session which is usually published in April.
The faculty of the College of Law feels that continuous law study throughout the
year is undesirable except in cases where it is essential that a student accelerate his
work, and therefore strongly urges students who have been in continuous attendance for
two or more semesters not to attend the summer session.

REQUIREMENTS FOR DEGREES
All degrees are conferred by the Board of Control at regular commencement exer-
cises. All candidates for degrees are required to be present at commencement exercises
(Baccalaureate Sermon and Commencement Convocation). A student who fails to at-
tend without being excused by the Board of Control will not have his degree conferred
until he makes another application and complies with this requirement.
The Faculty of the College of Law will recommend for the degree of Bachelor of
Laws (LL.B.) candidates who have complied with the following requirements:
1. Completion, with a passing grade of courses totalling at least 85 credits, of which
at least 55 must have been completed in this College. (In the case of a student
admitted with advanced standing prior to September, 1951, at least 28 credits
must have been completed in this College.)
2. Maintenance of either (a) a 2.0 honor point average on all work attempted
after February 4, 1950, or (b) a 2.0 honor point average on the total of all
work completed with a passing grade prior to February 4, 1950, and all work
attempted after February 4, 1950.














COLLEGE OF LAW


3. Completion of at least 90 weeks of study in residence in an accredited law school,
of which at least 56 must have been in residence in this College. (In the case
of a student admitted with advanced standing prior to September, 1951, at
least thirty weeks must have been completed in residence in this College.)
4. Completion of the last 28 credits and the last 30 weeks of study in residence in
this College, unless other arrangements are made in advance by written petition
approved by the faculty of the College of Law.
In cases of superior scholarship and intellectual attainments the Bachelor of Laws
degree may be recommended With Honors or With High Honors. Ordinarily, to be
eligible for consideration for the degree of Bachelor of Laws With Honors the candidate
must have maintained an honor point average of 3.0 on all work attempted, and to be
eligible for consideration for the degree of Bachelor of Laws With High Honors the
candidate must have maintained an honor point average of 3.5 on all work attempted
which work must include Legal Research or Law Review.

STANDARDS OF THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION
The Council on Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar
Association requests that attention be called to the Standards of the American Bar Asso-
ciation adopted in 1921 and by it recommended for enactment by all states. These
Standards as amended provide in effect that every candidate for admission to the bar,
in addition to taking a public examination, shall give evidence of graduation from a law
school which shall require at least three years of acceptable college work as a con-
dition of admission, and three years of law study (or longer if not a full-time course),
which shall have an adequate library and a sufficient number of teachers giving their
entire time to the school to ensure actual personal acquaintance and influence with the
whole student body, and which shall not be operated as a commercial enterprise.

LIBRARY
The Law Library contains over 36,000 volumes, with accessions being made at the
rate of approximately three thousand volumes a year. In it are included the published
reports of the courts of last resort in every state in the Union and of the Federal
Courts, the English Reports, Full Reprint, the English Law Reports, Law Journal Re-
ports, Law Times Reports, Dominion Law Reports, the Canadian Reports, Australian
Reports, New Zealand Reports, Scottish Reports, and the Philippine Reports, together
with a collection of digests, encyclopedias, series of selected cases, English and American
treatises and textbooks, and the statutes of a majority of American jurisdictions includ-
ing the Federal statutes.
LEGAL RESEARCH
The program in Legal Research (LW. 601) is a specific attempt to relate the study
of law to practice by modeling instruction upon law office methods. The program is
conducted as individual projects. Current problems, which are submitted by attorneys
throughout the state, are used when available. The student is required to do individual
research and to present his findings in the form of a legal memorandum. Emphasis is
upon individual work and responsibility. Professional facility in research, analysis, or-
ganization, and expression must be fully demonstrated before credit is earned.












CATALOG 1952-1953


UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA LAW REVIEW
The University of Florida Law Review is published quarterly by the student
Editorial Board assisted by the Faculty Advisors. Approximately half of the publication is
written by the students, and the remainder, written by specialists in various fields, is
selected and edited by the Editorial Board. Emphasis as to subject-matter is on Florida
and federal law. The work furnishes intensive training in research, organization, analysis
and style. Members of the Editorial Board are elected on the basis of scholarship and
past performance of law review work. After the freshman year, credit can be obtained
for work satisfactory to the Faculty Advisors. Second-semester students are encouraged to
participate by way of training, in order to insure a place on the staff, and perhaps on the
Editorial Board, in their junior and senior years.

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS
The John Marshall Bar Association is the student bar association affiliated with the
Florida Bar and open to all members of the student body. It arranges for prominent
members of the Bar to address the law students, and has committees which advise
with the faculty on matters of common interest such as curriculum and pre-law study.
Delta Theta Phi, Phi Alpha Delta, and Phi Delta Phi, national legal fraternities,
and Phi Delta Delta, national legal sorority, have active chapters at the College.

PRIZES AND AWARDS
American Jurisprudence Awards.-The publishers of American Jurisprudence award
a bound volume of an appropriate title from American Jurisprudence to the student
making the highest grade in each class in the following courses: Administrative Pro-
cess, Agency, Property I, Creditors' Rights, Negotiable Instruments, Private Corpora-
tions, Conflict of Laws, U. S. Constitutional Law I, Contracts II, Equity I, Evidence,
Insurance, Labor Law, Security Transactions, Municipal Corporations, Procedure I,
Public Utilities, Sales, Taxation I, Estates & Trusts I, Fiduciary Administration.
Bureau of National Affairs Award.-A prize of one year's subscription to Law
Week is offered by the Bureau of National Affairs to that student in the graduating
class whose record in the final year of law study reflects the greatest improvement over
that of the preceding years.

of his mother, has established a trust fund providing a prize of $25 to the University
of Florida Law Review apprentice doing the best work in each of the regular semester
and summer session apprentice groups.

the Circuit Court for the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit of Florida, provides an award of

All students are admitted subject to the rules of the University of Florida relating
to discipline and any amendments thereof.

REGISTRATION
Registration dates are set forth in the University Calendar. Dates for summer
session registration are listed in the Summer Session Bulletin. Students are responsible
for registering on these specified dates. Late registration fees will be charged for stu-
dents registering any time after the specified registration period.
All students must adhere to the registration procedure as announced by the Office
of the Registrar. This includes not only filing the prescribed forms at the designated
places, but also payment of all fees.
Change of Registration.-A student is not permitted to drop a course, add a
course, exchange one course for another, or change sections in the same course without
the approval of the Dean and the presentation at the Office of the Registrar of the
cards authorizing the change. An instructor will not admit a student to or drop him
from any class except after notification on the proper form from the Registrar's Office.
No student will receive credit for any course for which he is not properly registered.

CURRICULUM AND GRADES
Program of Study-The program of study contemplates six semesters of work, be-
ginning in the fall semester of the academic year, although efforts are made to adjust
the program to meet the needs of students entering in the spring semester.
Integrated groups of courses are offered in the first and second semesters. All stu-
dents are required to take the designated first year courses and to do so at the first
opportunity. In exceptional cases the Dean may waive these requirements.
All work after the first two semesters is elective, except that all students are re-
quired to take LW. 408, Legal Ethics, in the fifth or sixth semester. Prerequisites for
particular courses may be prescribed.
The privilege is reserved by each member of the faculty to limit the number and to
prescribe any special qualifications of students in his courses and seminars.
The privilege is reserved to cancel any course or seminar where the registration for
it does not warrant its being given in a particular semester.
Examinations.-In first semester courses mid-term examinations are held for the
primary purpose of acquainting students with law school examinations. Examinations
are given at the end of each semester in all courses.
Grading Scale.-Students' work is graded according to the following scale: A-ex-
cellent; B-good; C-satisfactory; D-poor; and E-failure. No numerical grades are
given. Grades of I (Incomplete) and X (Absent from examination) are temporary
grades, which must be changed to passing grades in accordance with the dates set in
the University Calendar or be considered as grades of E in considering a student's
record for graduation or in calculating averages. The grade of Ew is given where a stu-
dent is dropped for non-attendance or unsatisfactory work.
Determination of Honor Point Average.-The honor point average is determined
by computing the ratio of honor points to semester hours of work attempted. The stu-
dent receives honor points according to the following scale: A equals 4 honor points per
semester hour; B equals 3 honor points per semester hour; C equals 2 honor points per
semester hour; D equals 1 honor point per semester hour; E (failure) equals 0 honor
points per semester hour; Ew (dropped for non-attendance or unsatisfactory work)
equals 0 honor points per semester hour; I (incomplete) equals 0 honor point per se-
mester hour; X (absent from examination) equals 0 honor point per semester hour.
Probation and Exclusion Rules.-University regulations provide that a student who
fails fifty per cent or more of his work in any term or semester, will be suspended one
semester for poor scholarship and will not be readmitted to the University until the
lapse of one semester except upon the approval of a formal petition to the Senate Com-
mittee on Student Petitions. A student who has been dropped once and in any subse-
quent period of attendance fails fifty per cent or more of his work, shall be suspended
for poor scholarship and not be eligible for readmission.
In addition to the University exclusion rules, the following probation and exclusion
rules are applicable to all students attending the College of Law:
A student who fails to maintain a 1.8 honor point average for all work attempted
in any semester will be placed on probation for the next semester in which he is in
attendance. A student on probation will be excluded at the end of the semester unless
he maintains a 2.0 honor point average in all work attempted in that semester, or has a
2.0 cumulative honor point average in the total of all work completed with a passing

grade prior to February 4, 1950, and all work attempted after February 4, 1950. A
student excluded under this rule will not be readmitted except by special action of the
faculty of the College of Law.
Grades of I and X will be considered as grades of E for the purpose of computing
the honor point average under this provision until such time as they are changed to
passing grades, at which time the honor point average will be recomputed on the basis
of the permanent grades and the student restored to good standing, continued on pro-
bation, or immediately excluded as the application of the foregoing provision may
require.
For the purpose of this provision a semester means either (1) the regular fall se-
mester; (2) the regular spring semester; or (3) the summer session.
