The Spike or Victoria University College Review 1935
Law Faculty Club
Law Faculty Club
It has been suggested several times in recent years that the Law Faculty Club should disband, but this year, if in none other, it justified its existence by organising a welcome dinner to Professor J. Williams, our new Professor of English and New Zealand Law. Representatives from the College Council, Professorial Board, Wellington Law Society, several student organisations, and fifty law students gathered at the "Duke" on the 12th March and spent a most enjoyable evening. The opinion was expressed by many who were present that a Law Faculty dinner should become an annual event, as it is in other centres. The Club's thanks are due to Mr. A. T. S. McGhie for this brilliant idea.
The Club's congratulations are tendered to Messrs. J. C. White and A. G. Horsley. Mr. White was awarded the prize of £2 2s. offered for the best paper submitted on any subject of law. Mr. C. H. Weston, K.C., kindly undertook the task of judging this competition. Mr. Horsley was awarded the Chief Justice's Prize in Property and Contract, and But-terworth's Prize for Roman Law.
The Annual Law Ball, held in conjunction with the Wellington Law Students' Society, took place in the St. Francis Hall on August 22nd. Credit is due to the Combined Ball Committee for the excellent evening's enjoyment they provided.
Nine volumes of the Notable British Trials Series were presented by the Club to the Library in March of this year and should prove popular reading for all students.
In answer to the Haeremai Club's appeal for support for the procession, the Club had an official entry this year—the first for some time. It is hoped that with the return to popularity of the procession, the Club will continue to take an active part.
