Law Students to Get Wider Range In Course Choice

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Twenty-seven graduate seminars will be offered to third year law students in 1950-51 almost doubling the number now given, George Minkin '41, assistant Dean of the Faculty of Law, announced yesterday.

This increase comes as a part of a new faculty policy to have third year men devote time to working on their own. Is line with this policy is a new compulsory written work requirement. Third year students must present a satisfactory piece of written work in some selected field of study.

David F. Cavers, professor of Law will conduct a seminar in "Problems in the Control of Atomic Energy" for the first time. It will cover the administration of the Atomic Energy Act. John H. C. Morris, visiting professor of Law from Oxford, will give another new seminar in "Conflict of Laws."

The 1950-51 Official Register notes the elimination of the requirement that a student must be 21 years old before he is graduated.

The Law School now has students representing 308 colleges, according to the catalogue. This is an increase of 58 over last year.
