The Time Necessary to Get a Legal Education, 1 Columbia Jurist 67 (1885)
There are two ways of determining how long a time should be given to legal studies, before seeking to begin the practice of the profession. One is to look at the statutes and rules of Court of the State, find the shortest term allowed, and take that. Another is to ask how long a term is really necessary to make, or rather to begin to make, a well-read and well-balanced lawyer.
