The


development

THE PRACTICE


COURT.-Believing the students obtain


the Practice Court a better practical knowledge of pleading
and practice than can be acquired in any other way, aside from
the trial of actual cases, the Faculty lay special emphasis upon


this work.


Sessions of the Practice Court are held thruout


the year in an admirably equipped courtroom.


A clerk and a


sheriff are appointed from the Senior class, and regular records


of the court are kept.


Each student is required to participate


in the trial of at least one common law, one equity, and one


criminal case, and is instructed in appellate procedure.


Practice Court is conducted by


The


Judge Cockrell and Professor
