System of Advisers for Law Men

In accordance with a resolution of the Law Faculty passed last spring, the system of advisers for new men will be tried for the first time this year. It will be instituted to encourage among first-year men early and intelligent use of the law library and also to render the work of the law clubs efficient. Six advisers will be appointed, all to be of at least two years' standing. "Their duty will be (1) to explain to all inquirers the arrangement of books in the reading rooms, the scope of digests and of the works of reference, the mode of finding authorities upon any question and the arrangement of briefs for club courts; (2) to keep until the end of May two office hours each week in the reading room of Langdell Hall; (3) to serve on the committee on law clubs and if requested to sit as justice 12 times for clubs of first-year students; (4) to spend 12 hours yearly in other work to be determined by the Law Faculty. For these services each adviser shall receive $250; except that if an advisership is held by a student who also holds a Sears Prize or an endowed scholarship, the compensation shall be $100. One adviser shall be designated as chairman of the Board of Advisers. He shall receive $50 additional compensation." The advisers will be appointed at the meeting of the Law Faculty today.
