Address of Henry Wade Rogers, LL.D., 17 Annual Report of the American Bar Association 389 (1894)


Gentlemen : The American Bar Association is to be congratulated on the organization of a Section of Legal Education. For the Association, as declared in its constitution, seeks, among other objects, " to advance the science of jurisprudence * * * and uphold the honor of the profession of the law among the members of the American Bar." There is no way by which these ends can so certainly be attained as by a thorough training in the science of jurisprudence of those who are to become members of the profession, and by inculcating in their minds high ideals of the honor and the ethics of the profession. It is the exalted privilege of those who are engaged in legal education to perform that noble duty. It is, therefore, most fitting that the very first Section which the American Bar Association establishes should be this Section on Legal Education.
