showing of undue hardship, but only to the extent of permitting the

work to be taken over by correspondence, and only with the permis-
sion of the dean of the College in which the student is enrolled.

toward a degree for correspondence work in courses in which the
student has received a grade of E and which he can repeat or could
have repeated in class while in residencco"

Dean Terrell presented a request from the Department of Mechanical Engi-
neering that the senior mechanical engineers be allowed to take an industrial
inspection trip to Detroit, Michigan during the period from April 14 through
the 18th. This request was approved by the University Faculty.

Dean Stahr presented for the College of Law a recommendation to the
Faculty and the Board of Trustees that the degree of Bachelor of Science in
Law be authorized effective with the June Commencement of 1955 for awarding
to candidates of the College of Law who meet the following requirements.

(1) PRELAW REQUIREMENTS: A minimum of 64 semester hours of
accredited college courses, as follows:

(a) All lower division requirements of the College of Arts

and Sciences (of the equivalent, except for Military Science
and Physical Education, in the case of transfer students): or

(b) All courses prescribed for the freshman and sephomore
years of the combined CommercemLaw curriculum (or the equivalent.
except for Military Science and Physical Education, in the case
of transfer students). plus sufficient credits from the list of
electives provided for such curriculum to bring the total to at

least 64 semester hours.
(c) At least 54 hours acquired in residence.

(d) All 64 semester hours certified by an accredited

(e) At least 54 semester hours in "theory" courses.

(f) An average academic standing of at least 1.3 on all
work undertaken toward satisfying the "prelaw" requirements.

(3) Since the foregoing requirements are slightly
different from the minimum requirements for admission to the
four-year Law curriculum, any deficiencies may be satisfied
after such admission (but not in class during one of the six
semesters otherwise required for the degree after such

(a) Eligibility for admission to the College of Law.


(b) A minimum of six semesters of residence, and 82
semester hours. in a law school which is a member of the
Association of American Law Schools.

(c) A minimum of four semesters of residence in the
University of Kentucky College of Law, including the two

semesters next preceding the award of the degree.

'(d) A minimum of 67 semester hours in Law courses.


(e) A minimum of 15 semester hours in other courses ‘
approved for the four-year Law curriculum. f

(f) An average academic standing of at least 1.0 on all ‘
courses undertaken toward satisfying the "Law" requirements.

(3) All 82 semester hours acquired in residence.

It will be noted that the foregoing means that the typical
candidate for the proposed degree will have to offer (1) at
least five years of collegeelevel work, with at least four ‘
semesters at the University of Kentucky; (2) at least 79 hours
of non-Law courses; (3) at least 67 hours of Law courses: (4) L
at least 146 hours of collegemlevel work, of which no more than {
eight may be in “nontheory” courses: (5) an overall academic I

' standing of at least 1.3 on "prelaw" courses and 1.0 on "Law"


There are two principal reasons for recommending this new
degree: (1) to encourage the acquisition of a better general
education by those entering or desiring to enter law school
after only two years of college work: and (2) to remove the
inequity inherent in awarding only one degree (LL. B.) to such [
students after six full years of collegeelevel work, while other ~
students can obtain one degree in four years and two in five fifl‘


Afl—‘VVA ‘fi'v' ,-

years, if they work for a Master's. or one in four years and two

in six years. (They would still need the LL. B. in order to
qualify to take the bar examination.)

Most of the Universities. if not all; which now offer a
four-year Law curriculum have authorized the B. S. L. degree.
Moreover. they offer it after only two years in law school.
as against the three years above recommended. They are: Indiana {
and Northwestern Universities. and the Universities of Alabama.
Arkansas. Denver, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota,
Utah, Washington and Wyoming. 7

The University Faculty voted to recommend to the Board of Trustees that this
degree be authorized.

Dean Spivey presented for the Graduate Faculty a recommendation for

approval of the following policies relating to the Graduate Record
