MEMBERS AND OFFICERS President .... V'f!fU-Ijf6.9'flf6'7l't . Secretary . . f V I ruusurcr Organized in 1915 as a working society by which a small group of students might better study the funda- mental principles of law, Woolsack has since developed into the honorary scholastic society of the School of Law. Seeking a name which would properly imply the ideals, standards and purposes of the organization, Dr. Frank L. Simpson, founder of the group chose "Wool- sack." The VVoolsack. upon which have sat each of the Lord Chancellors of England since the days of Queen Elizabeth, is recognized as a symbol of the majesty, the erudition and the integrity of British law. Election to Woolsack is regarded as the highest honor which can be bestowed upon a student at the School of Law. Membership is restricted to those seniors who have distinguished themselves by outstand- ing scholastic achievement, irreproachable ethical characteristics, leadership ability and professional interest. Students who meet the exacting requirements of the society are extended conditional membership in the early part of their senior year. If the high scholastic record upon which conditional membership is given is upheld throughout the year, permanent membership is granted in May. VVoolsack's purpose is to establish the importance of scholarship as a component to the practical aspects of the legal profession and to foster a spirit of profes- . Rene A. Brassard John F. Campbell, Jr. Abraham Belilove Stephen C. Struffolino sional brotherhood among the students at the School of Law. To materialize its ideals, VVoolsack sponsors a well organized program of round table discussions each year. Student members meet with prominent alumni and discuss vital problems confronting the practising attorney. Through these group meetings, students are afforded the opportunity to express their views on pertinent controversial problems of the day, to hear what experienced lawyers think about these questions and to form more significant legal opinions concerning them. In addition to maintaining high academic standards, members of Woolsack have gained recognition by parti- cipation in extra-curricular activities both at the School of Law and in the University as a whole. Wool- sack men have been prominent in the publication of the Boston University Law Review, quarterly legal maga- zine, many rising to high staff positions. Numerous class oflieers, members of the School of Law Student Council and the University Student Council have been awarded membership in Woolsack. VVoolsack can list among its alumni many men who have been highly successful in their chosen fields, men respected as practising attorneys, judges on State and Federal benches and men who have been elected to responsible local and national governments.
