The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 11



The advantages afforded by a College of Law for instruction in the science and practice of Law are appreciated by both the Bar and the public. A systematic course of study, under eminent living teachers, is quite as valuable to the legal student as to the medical or theological. For laying the foundation of a thorough knowledge of the Law, the advantages of the Law College far exceed those of an office. In an office it is seldom that the student receives the attention his best interests demand. In the College the professors are specially charged with this work. The value of this instruction is indicated by the fact that about one hundred students had, prior to the establishment of this College, gone yearly from the State of Illinois to the schools of other Stales, even though these schools do not teach our system of practice, nor the statutes and decisions of our State. It is believed this demand for systematic instruction will be fully met hereafter in our College of Law.
