p.m. in the Assembly Room of Lafferty Hall. President Donovan presided. «ENE

The minutes of March 14 were read and approved.

At the request of President Donovan Dean Stahr explained the purpose of the
called session. He stated that the practice has been for students who completed
work for degrees in Law at the end of the first semester to take the bar examines
tiOn and to obtain their licenses on the besis of a letter from the Dean of the
Law College certifying that their work had been completed. A new interpretation
of ruling had been made, however, which provides that the licenses could not be
issued to anyone who had not actually received his degree. This made it EGCGSE
sary to call a meeting of the University Faculty to recommend candidates for
degrees in Law to the Board of Trustees at the April meeting of that body. He
then moved that the following named students be recommended to the Board of
Trustees for the degree of Bachelor of Laws:
