Property 2 Becomes Third Year Course at Law School Next Year

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Two Law School professors will be able to take sabbasticals next year when Property 2 takes a permanent jump to a third years course. It was learned yesterday, Andrew J. Casner, professor of Law, will take the first half-year off, while William B. Leach, professor of Law, will not be at the University during the second semester.

Since Property 2 will not be given next year, no one will be called in to replace Casner or Leach. The reason for moving Property 2 up a year, interchanging it with Taxation--now a third year course, is to give students a background of taxation theory by their third year, according to Casner.

Taxation

"The earlier students get taxation training, the more you can draw on it in other courses," he said. "It will also open the door for advanced seminars in taxation."

Neither Leach nor Casner has yet made definite plans for his sabbaticals, though it is thought that Casner may teach at Oxford.
