Largely thru the influence of Hon. Nathan P. Bryan, then a member of the Board
of Control, the College of Law was established in 1909. From this time until 1917
the course comprised the work of two years. With the session of 1917-18 the present
three-year course was inaugurated.
At first the College was quartered in Thomas Hall, one of the dormitories. At
the opening of the session of 1913-14 more spacious rooms were provided in Language
Hall. During the following summer and fall the present structure was erected and
on Thanksgiving Day, 1914, the College, with fitting ceremonies, took possession of
its own home, one of the finest law school buildings in the South.

It is the purpose of the College to impart a thoro, scientific, and practical knowl-
edge of the law, and thus to equip its students to take advantage of the splendid
opportunities the present readjustments in business and social life are creating.
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 legal information.
Building.-This splendid structure is one hundred and seventy-two feet long,
seventy feet wide, and two and one-half stories high. It contains a large, well-
lighted library, furnished with bookstacks, library tables, librarian's office, and con-
sultation rooms for students and faculty. It has three commodious lecture-rooms,
together with the offices of administration, and the offices of the several resident
professors. It contains, also, a handsomely paneled courtroom and auditorium. The
courtroom has all the usual accessories, jury box, witness stand, judge's office, and
jury room, and is connected with the library below by a circular stairway. Every
interest of the College has been provided for, including attractive quarters for the
Marshall Law Club. The building is steamheated, lighted by electricity, and
equipped thruout with a superior grade of furniture. It is devoted to the uses of the
College of Law and furnishes accommodations as comfortable and as convenient as
can be found in the country.
Library.-The Law Library contains over 10,200 volumes. It has all the published
reports of the courts of last resort of every State in the Union and of the Federal
Courts, the full English Reprints, the English Law Reports, Law Journal Reports,
Dominion Law Reports, the reports of the Interstate Commerce Commission and
the Land Decisions of the Department of the Interior besides an excellent collec-
tion of digests, encyclopedias, series of selected cases, treatises and textbooks, both
English and American. The Library also contains the Statutes of several of the
States besides those of the Federal Government, and is a subscriber to the leading
legal periodicals. A course of instruction is given in legal bibliography and the use
of law books. Every facility also is offered law students to make use of the General


Library, in which are included works of interest and information to the lawyer.
Both libraries are open during the academic year on every secular day between the
hours of 8:00 A. M. and 10:00 P. M., and are in charge of trained librarians, who
render needed aid to students.
Henderson Memorial Library.-The College gratefully acknowledges the gift of
the library of the late John W. Henderson of Tallahassee. This splendid collection
of law books, containing volumes of rare value and historical importance, will be
maintained intact in memory of its donor.


Requirements for Admission.-General information respecting admission may be
found in the Bulletin of General Information for 1931-32, pages 133-141; and the
specific requirements of the College of Law are given on pages 136-137 of this bulletin.
Women Students.-By an Act of the Legislature of 1925, women who are twenty-
one years of age and who fully meet the entrance requirements of the College may
enter as candidates for degrees.
Special Students.-The practice of admitting special students (i. e., those not
meeting the requirements for admission) has been discontinued.
Advanced Standing.-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 question in this College, or unless credit is given without examina-
tion. Credit of an average of C from schools which are members of the Associa-
tion of American Law Schools, of which this College is a member, will be accepted
without examination. In no case will credit be given for work not done in residence
at an approved law school.


Full information respecting the expenses of law students may be found in the
Bulletin of General Information for 1931-32, pages 142-146.


Electives in Other Colleges.-The advantages of the other colleges of the Uni-
versity are open to such students in the College of Law as desire and are able to
accept them. Courses in history, economics, sociology, psychology, logic, English,
and speech are particularly recommended. No extra charge is made for such
courses, but they can be taken only with the consent of the Dean.
Military Science and Tactics.-The University has an infantry unit, senior divi-
sion of the Reserve Officers Training Corps and a Field Artillery Unit, to member-
ship in which law students are eligible. They are not required, however, to join
these organizations or to take any other military drill.
John Marshall Law Club.-Early in the first year of the College the students
organized a society that would secure to its members practice in debating and public
speaking and experience in arguing legal questions, as well as drill in parliamentary
law. The society is now named the John Marshall Law Club, in honor of the
distinguished Southern jurist, John Marshall.



Thru the generosity of The American Law Book Company a Corpus Juris-Cyc
prize is offered, under certain conditions, for the best work in legal research. Ex-
cellency in this work also will be considered in computing the grade of students
taking brief making.
The Harrison Company of Atlanta kindly offers a set of the Photographic Re-
print of the Florida Supreme Court Reports, vols. 1-22, to the senior doing all his
work in this institution and making the highest record during his law course.


Bachelor of Laws.-The degree of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) is conferred upon
those students who satisfactorily complete eighty-five semester hours of law which
must include all of the first-year subjects. Students admitted to advanced standing
may receive the degree after one year's residence, but in no case will the degree
be granted unless the candidate is in actual residence during all of the third year
and passes in this College at least twenty-eight semester hours of law.
All students are required to complete the last twenty-eight credit hours applied
towards the degree during regular residence. This may be varied only upon written
petition approved by the faculty of the College of Law.
Juris Doctor.-Students who have complied with all the requirements for the
degree of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.), who have maintained an average standing of
B in their law studies, and who have obtained the degree of A.B., or an equivalent
degree, from an approved college or university, or who secure such degree the same
year they complete their law course, will be awarded the degree of Juris Doctor
Combined Academic and Law Course.-By pursuing an approved course of
collegiate and law studies a student may earn both the academic and the legal
degree in six years. The College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Com-
merce and Journalism each offers such a combined course. For further particulars.
see the Bulletin of General Information for 1931-32, pages 121, 127.


Upon presenting their diplomas, duly issued by the proper authorities, and upon
furnishing satisfactory evidence that they are twenty-one years of age and of good
moral character, the graduates of the College are licensed, without examination, to
practice in the courts of Florida. They are also admitted without examination to the
United States District Courts of Florida.


Grades are recorded by use of the letters A (Excellent), B (Good), C (Fair),
D (Unsatisfactory but passing), E (Failure). D is the lowest passing grade.
Other special grades are I (Incomplete) ; X (missed examination).
The grade of I must be removed within two months or it will be recorded E.



To obtain the degree applied for a student must earn at the University of Flor-
ida as many honor points as credits. In computing an average, each semester hour
with A gives three points, each hour with B, two points, each hour with C, one point.
Other grades give no points.

No attempt is made in this announcement to give a synopsis of the student rules
and regulations of the University. These relate to absences, conduct, dropping
courses, failure in studies, honor system, matriculation, and many other important
matters. They are printed for distribution to all students. It is the duty of each
student to familiarize himself therewith, as his rights and liabilities are determined
by them.

Courses.-The College is convinced that an intensive knowledge of pleading
and practice should be secured by the student, since legal rights cannot be well
understood without a mastery of the rules of pleading whereby they are enforced.
As Lord Coke declared: "Good pleading is the touchstone of the true sense and
knowledge of the common law." The development of right has depended upon the
development of actions; the rule of law was the rule of writs and in large measure
remains so today. Consequently the College offers thoro courses in criminal plead-
ing and procedure, common law pleading, equity pleading, Florida civil practice,
trial practice, and Federal procedure. Thus the student on graduation is enabled
to enter understandingly upon the practice of law; and to this fact the College
attributes much of the rapid advancement of its alumni.
As young men from all parts of the country in increasing numbers are attend-
ing the University, combining the advantages of travel, new associations, and
salubrious climate with those of the educational facilities here afforded, the College
endeavors to serve those who intend to practice elsewhere as efficiently as those who
expect to locate in this state.
The Practice Court.-Believing the students obtain in 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 a well-equipped
courtroom. A clerk and a sheriff are appointed from the junior 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.
The Practice Court is conducted by Professor Te Selle, assisted by Professor Day.


Starting in 1927, instruction has been offered during the summer. The sessions
are eight weeks in length, the requirements and standards of the regular session
are maintained, and credit towards a degree is given for the work offered.
The courses are varied from year to year and have attracted many students.
Particulars for next summer may be obtained a month or so before the close of
the regular session.



Curriculum Leading to the Degree of Bachelor of Laws or Juris Doctor.-Stu-
dents completing the first year as outlined below and a total of 85 semester hours of
law credit will be awarded the degree of Bachelor of Laws, or of Juris Doctor, if
the requirements therefore are met.
