Notwithstanding wars and rumors of wars, the September 1950 semester opens with almost 1000 prospective candidates for the legal profession, 372 members of the first-year class, 288 members of the second-year class, 284 in the third-year class, 24 graduate students in law and 3 special students, making a total of 971 students. The enrollment is actually 59 less than last year when a total of 1030 students were enrolled for the fall semester, but the call of reservists and the prospective induction of all other able bodied male persons have had a noticeable though limited effect. Moreover, they create an atmosphere of suspense not to say apprehension throughout the student body, but the fundamentals of law will be imparted just as rigorously as ever.
