Summary of statistics of law schools in the l’nited States. Number of law schools..

56 Number of instructors

453 Number of students..

6, 106 The number of students who had, previous to their engaging in the study of law, obtained a degree in letters or science, either from a college or some other institution conferring literary or scientific degree, is unknown. Many colleges take no record of such facts; others again may be apprehensive that invidious distinctions may bo drawn against themselves, if the facts in their case be known. Under these conditions there is but one method to follow, that is, to take the total number of students in the schools that report the fact in question and to compare that total with the total number of students reported as having previously obtained a bachelor degree in arts or science. This has been the method followed by the specialist who has prepared the chapter on professional schools in the Annual Report of the Bureau of Education, when preparing the diagrams illustrating the increase of attendance at the various professional institutions in Germany, France, and particularly in the United States. Addopting this method of procedure then, it appears that theNumber of schools reporting the fact was

498 To put the matter briefly, 15 in every 100 students in 26 schools had obtained a degrec in some institution not giving professional instruction, or, more technically expressed, had obtained a degree in letters or science.

The length of the course is two years. Of 54 schools reporting 40 have a two years' course, 7 have a course of 1 year which in several instances inay be spread

over two, 27 schools have a three yoars' course. Of the 40 schools with two years'
courses, several permit the student to take it in one year, and 7 schools, on the con-
trary, offer a post-graduate course. In Washington, D. C., this is called a “post-
graduate course in practice.” Yale Law Schoul has an undergraduate course of two
years and a post-graduate courso also of two, but one (the last) of which need not
be taken.
