If a student has deviated more than three majors from a regular course of study required at the college from which he comes, the relief from prescribed work permitted to him under 6) and c) above will be diminished by the amount of such deviation in excess of three majors. Pre-legal courses may be taken or substituted to satisfy this extra deficiency.
Students already holding such degrees from other colleges may obtain an academic degree from the University upon satisfying the above requirements, but such students may not receive both an academic and a law degree with less than six quarters of residence in the University.
Law degrees.-The degree of Doctor of Law (J.D.) is conferred upon candidates therefor who are college graduates and have completed the professional course.
The degree of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) is conferred upon candidates therefor who have completed the professional course with a standing ten per cent. above the passing mark.
To obtain either of the professional degrees it is necessary to complete twenty-seven majors of law work, distributed over nine quarters of law-school residence, of which at least nine majors of work and three quarters of residence (including the last quarter for which credit is given) must have been at this School. The work of the first year and the practice courses are required.
Candidates for either of the professional degrees who complete the course with high distinction will receive the degree cum laude.
No professional degree will be conferred upon any student markedly deficient in English, and no student may receive both an academic and a professional degree in the same quarter.
FEES 1. Matriculation fee.- A matriculation fee of $5 is required of every student entering the University for the first time.
2. Tuition fee. The tuition fee in the Law School is $50 a quarter ($25 a term) for regular work (three majors). Students who take half-work or less, pay half-fees, and receive residence-credit pro rata. With the consent of the Dean, law students may take extra work in the Law School or in any department of the University without extra charge.
Students not registered in the Law School pay $5 a major extra for each law course taken, except law courses offered by members of the Department of Political Science as part of the work of that department. Undergraduate students not registered in the Law School must pay $20 for each major law course taken as extra work.
For the pre-legal course the tuition fee is $40 a quarter for regular work. For extra work $15 a major is charged.
3. Diploma fee.-The charge for the diploma of the University is $10.
4. Payment of bills.— All tuition fees are due and payable on or before the First day of each quarter to the REGISTRAR, Press Building.
SCHOLARSHIPS A small number of scholarships, each yielding a portion of the tuition fees for an academic year (three quarters), are awarded annually to meritorious members of the Law School needing such assistance, in return for service in the Law Library. A preference is given to students of high rank. Schol. arships for the Summer Quarter only are awarded separately upon similar terms. All applications for scholarships for the Summer Quarter and for the succeeding year, accompanied by statements regarding the age, education, occupation, scholarship, and other qualifications of the applicant, should be made in writing to the Dean before June 1.
REGULATIONS Law students who are candidates for an academic degree from the Uni. versity must conform to the general rules and regulations governing Senior College students. A number of these rules are waived in the case of students already holding college degrees representing twenty-seven majors of work.
In any one quarter first-year students may not register for more than three majors, nor other students for more than three and one-half majors of work without the consent of the Dean.
Students may not take examinations (except to remove conditions) in more than ten and one-half majors of resident work in any three consecutive quarters.
The work of the first year and the practice courses are required. The second- and third-year courses are elective and need not be taken in any fixed order.
To obtain credit toward a law degree for any work done in the School students must pass the regular examinations, which are by printed questions to be answered in writing. Examinations in courses continuing more than one quarter will be held only at the completion of the course. No special examinations will be given, nor will partial credit be allowed for any uncompleted course, or for one in which the student has not passed in the examination. Additional examinations in first-year subjects only will be held the last week in September for admission to advanced standing and for the removal of conditions. Application for admission to these examinations should be made not later than September 15. Other conditions may be removed or advanced standing obtained at the regular examinations. Students who pass below a certain grade in a course must take it again before re-examination.
Regular attendance at class exercises is required as a condition of receiving credit for work done, and the privilege of membership in the School may be withdrawn for unsatisfactory work or attendance.
THE QUARTER SYSTEM The system prevailing in the University of dividing the work into quarters is adopted in the Law School. The quarters are designated as the Summer, Autumn, Winter, and Spring Quarters, beginning respectively in 1909-10 on June 21, October 1, January 3, and March 28. Each quarter is eleven to twelve weeks long, and the Summer and Winter Quarters are divided into two terms. A recess of about one week occurs between the end of each quarter and the beginning of the next, except that there is no recess between the end of the Spring and the beginning of the Summer Quarter, and that there is a recess during September at the end of the Summer Quarter. Any three quarters count as an academic year, and it is thus possible to complete the three-year law course in two and one-fourth calendar years.
The work in the Law School is so arranged that it is better for beginning first-year students to enter at the opening of the Summer or Autumn Quarter than at any other time. The beginning courses given then are not repeated later, and while such students may enter in the Winter or Spring Quarter, it is somewhat less advantageous to do so. Senior College students should plan their work to enter the Law School in June or October. Students admitted to advanced standing may usually enter without difficulty in the middle of the Summer or Winter Quarter, or at the beginning of any quarter. No courses begin in the middle of the Autumn or Spring Quarter.
MAJORS AND MINORS
The credit-value of courses of instruction is reckoned in majors and minors. A major (Mj) is equivalent to four hours of instruction a week for a quarter. A minor (M) equals that amount of instruction for one term (half a quarter.
ROUTINE OF ENTRANCE Applications and correspondence should be addressed to JAMES P. HALL, Dean of the University of Chicago Law School, Chicago, Ill. A student from another institution should present his diploma or certificate of graduation; or, if he does not hold a degree equivalent to three years of college work in the University, he should bring a detailed statement of his work. Blank forms for such statements will be sent upon application. All credentials should be presented at the office of the Dean. In cases of doubt, correspondence is invited upon these matters before the student presents himself for admission. Directions for matriculation and registration will be furnished in the Dean's office.
For information regarding majors and minors; regarding rooms, board, expenses, and opportunities to students for self-help; and regarding University privileges and other general matters, see this Register, pp. 96, 134.
