The academic year 1947-1948 opened with the largest student enrollment in the history of the University of Michigan Law School, overflowing the Law Quadrangle and making the year notable for large classes and keen competition. The 417 beginning students, 329 second-year students, 345 seniors, 10 candidates for advanced degrees in law, and 6 special students, all add up to a grand total of 1107 prospective lawyers. This figure compares with an enrollment of 956 at a corresponding time in the fall semester a year ago, and 641 in the pre-war year 1940-1941.
