Law School, Quad Rank First iin Nation


"The first unit completely organ-
ized. and equipped for the training of
lawyers and for research in legal sci-
ence" were the words used by Chief
Justice (then an associate justice)
of the U. S. Supreme Court, Harlan
F. Stone, in speaking at the dedica-
tory exercises of the William Wilson
Cook Law Quadrangle, June 15, 1934.
As yet unmarred by thick

Following the general wartime ac-
celeration of the other schools of the
University, the Law School, whose
fall and spring semesters normally
consisted of approximately 15 weeks
with an additional two week exam
period and of a ten and one-half
week semester session, has adopted
the three semester year, thus allow-
ing its students to receive the Bach-
elor of Law degree in less than three
years. Other degrees now conferred
by the law school are juris doctor,
master of laws and doctor of science
of laws.
A testimony to the high esteem
in which the Michigan Law School
is nationally, if not internationally,
held, came in September, 1942,
when the War Department trans-
ferred the Judge Advocate Gen-
eral's School from Washington, D.
C., to the Law Quadrangle.
Staffed by members of the JAG
Department of the Army, this school
is engaged in training Army judge
advocates in military law. Members
of the bar as well as possessors of

they are known about campus, num-
ber roughly 140 and are housed dur-
ing their training in one wing of the

ferocious blocking and

remarkably few injuries.

crippling. Clem Bauman,
