Not illustrated. 1893 edition. Excerpt: ...question is, how he shall best fit himself for admission to the bar. In regard to this, there can scarcely be a question but that two years spent in a first-class law school will afford the most thorough preparation. Not that this alone w1ll fit the student to enter upon practice--a year or two more may be profitably spent in a law office having a large practice. But in no other way can the fundamental principles of law be so thoroughly acquired and fixed in the mind, and make themselves felt and recognized in practice through all future life. The experienced lawyer can, without long observation of the young man in the trial and argument of cases, almost certainly decide whether he has enjoyed the advantage here spoken of In all cases where it is possible the young man should not hesitate to avail himself of this advantage. The writer hereof had not a dollar nor any means on which to rely, when he entered the Yale school, but supported himself by teaching. Almost any one can do this (especially if a college graduate) and the effort will never be regretted. But in case the advantage of a law school cannot be had, let the student select the best law office attainable for the commencement of his studies. And whenever possible, let him by all means, stipulate for not less than one hour in each week of instruction from the head of the office in reviewing the studies he has gone over. If need be, pay for such instruction over and above services rendered in the office.
