Chafee Speaks in Langdell Hall Court Room Tomorrow

Llewellyn Will Share Joint Discussion Sponsored by P. B. H.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

"What is Wrong with Education for Law?" will be the subject of a joint discussion by Zeebariah Chafee, Jr., professor of Law, and Professor Karl N. Llewellyn, of Columbia University, at 8 o'clock tomorrow evening in the court-room of Langdell Hall. The meeting, open to all members of the University, will be held under the auspices of the Law School Committee of Phillips Brooks House.

It is expected that Professor Llewellyn, an advocate of the "functional" rather than the "historical" approach to law study, will deal with the system of law training now used at Columbia, and discuss its advantages. Law instruction at Columbia, he maintains, is given from the point of view of practical relations with clients, whereas at Harvard, too much stress is placed on the growth of principles from the past. Following Professor Llewellyn's address, Professor Chafee will comment on his remarks.
