Abstract

The March, 1951, issue of the Journal made the first announcement of a new experiment in legal education. Thanks to the gift of an anonymous donor, twenty scholarships were established at New York University Law School to prepare outstanding young men for legal careers. The scholarships are large enough to leave the student free to devote his entire time to the pursuit of his studies and the recipients are selected, two from each federal judicial circuit, by committees who choose them on the basis of their scholastic records, extracurricular activities as undergraduates, and potential capacity for leadership. The program is now in its second year. The following article describes its operations to date.
