This is an excellent brief survey of American legal education- succinct, comprehensive, and readable. It is admirable for its immediate purpose, as "A Report Prepared for the Survey of the Legal Profession." In fact it is one of the best of the reviews yet to come out of that far-flung project. If some limitations to the discussion, particularly as respects some controversies over present-day training of lawyers, are to be discovered, its objective must be kept in mind. A fuller attack upon these issues would inevitably have taken the study beyond a survey and into realms where debate has waxed violent and disagreement appears inevitable.
