The law library contains a large collection of the books most needed by the student, and is being constantly extended and improved. It is conveniently placed in connection with the reading room of the Boalt Hall of Law.


The following persons will be admitted, without examination, as candidates for the degree of Juris Doctor: (1) graduates of any college of the University of California, and of other colleges and universities of approved grade; (2) students of the University of California having senior standing in the College of Letters or of Social Sciences. The same privileges are open to regular students having senior standing in other colleges of the University, provided they have completed at least six units of Latin.

Students who enter the professional curriculum with senior standing may obtain the academic bachelor's degree on the satisfactory completion of the first year of such curriculum, provided that not more than twenty-six units of professional law work will be counted toward the bachelor's degree.


Any person who, after becoming entitled to enter the professional curriculum as a regular student, has been in regular attendance for at least one academic year at another law school, having similar admission requirements, may, in the discretion of the department of Jurisprudence, and on such terms, with or without examination, as it may prescribe, receive credit for the work done at such other law school not exceeding in any case two years. The last year must be spent in residence in the department of Jurisprudence.


The degree conferred by the University on the satisfactory completion of the professional curriculum is Juris Doctor (J.D.). Except as provided for students admitted to advanced standing, candidates for this degree must have been in residence in the department of Jurisprudence during three academic years, and must have completed satisfactorily the eurriculum prescribed for the first year and forty-four units of work in the second and third years. Credit for not more than twelve units in the second and third years will be given for any half-year, and at least eight units must be passed in order to maintain residence. Work done in the Summer Session may be counted for units, but not for residence. Every candidate for the degree of J.D. must present an acceptable dissertation on some legal topic.


Attention is given, in connection with the courses in procedure and practice, to the subjects of brief-making and legal forms.

The students have organized two Law Clubs for the primary purpose of holding Moot Courts. These courts are aided with the advice and direction of members of the Faculty.


Section 280b of the California Code of Civil Procedure provides that any person producing evidence of having satisfactorily completed the three years' course of law prescribed by the department of Jurisprudence of the University of California shall be entitled to a license to practice law in all the courts of the state, subject to the right of the chief justice of the Supreme Court to order an examination as in ordinary cases of applicants without such evidence.
