ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE
ACADEMIC YEAR
1943-1944
THE SCHOOL OF LAW
ANNOUNCEMENT FOR 1943-1944
NEW THREE-TERM SCHEDULE
Beginning in the fall of 1943, the Northwestern University School
of Law will change its basis of instruction from two semesters a year
to three terms a year. There will be fall, spring, and summer terms,
each the equivalent of a semester. A student will be able to complete
the requirements for a degree in six terms, or two years. If he desires,
however, he may attend school only two terms a year and spread his
work over three years, as formerly.
OPENING DATES
The fall term will open October 4, 1943, and close February 5, 1944;
the spring term will open February 7 and close May 27; the summer
term will open June 12 and close September 23.
ADMISSION
Students may be admitted at the beginning of each term. While
they may be admitted on the basis of two years of acceptable college
work, students are advised where possible to continue in college until
they have obtained a degree. In most cases the additional maturity
and understanding obtained by continuing in college will add greatly
to their work in the School of Law.
PROGRAM OF INSTRUCTION
The program of instruction will be substantially the same as during
the past year. Some of the more specialized courses have been discontinued
during the war period, but all basic courses and others for
which there is any appreciable registration will be offered.
SCHOLARSHIPS
A limited number of scholarships are available for students of
high scholastic standing who are in need of financial assistance.
EMPLOYMENT-CLASS SCHEDULES
Students who are compelled to earn part of their expenses while
in school can usually obtain employment through the Placement
Bureau of the University, 337 East Chicago Avenue. For their convenience,
classes are scheduled almost exclusively in the morning hours.
LIVING ACCOMMODATIONS
Since the Navy has taken over a large part of Abbott Hall for the
housing of midshipmen, the fourth floor of Levy Mayer Hall has been
converted into living quarters for law students. The furnishings are
the same as those of Abbott Hall, and the rooms are very livable.
The cafeteria at Abbott Hall is open to all students. Both rooms and
meals are available at reasonable prices. Inquire of Mr. C. R. Longwell,
Manager of Abbott Hall, 750 Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, for
details.
A bulletin giving full information concerning the School will be
sent on request.
