The course of study in the College of Law is the standard three
year course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Laws. The design of
the College of Law is to train the student in the fundamental principles
of English and American common law so as to equip him to practice
his profession wherever that system of law prevails. As most of the
students intend to practice in the state of Kentucky, special emphasis r—
is placed on the decisions of that state, but only as representing the
current of judicial authority or a dissent therefrom. The method used
in all classes is the study of cases, the method of instruction followed
in all the leading law schools of the country. Credit is obtained by
the successful passing of written examinations at the end of each semes- ,
ter, and the student who successfully completes the course is awarded f
the degree of Bachelor of Laws.

of study in a college.

hours, if they devote only part of their working time to their studies. 5
