Letter to the Law Student a:
A great law school require aa a minimum a hard-working st .dent body and a capable, energetic faculty working together In a cooperative manner, with such mutual trust, confidence and reaped aa to create a stimulating intellectual atmosphere for both faculty and students •l‘ke a substantial percentage of the atudenta in any law achool are habitually unprepared, are abaent from classes frequently without good reason, and in general are seeking to do only what is absolutely necessary in order to graduate, then the label of greatness can never be properly applied to that school. Likewise, If a substantial percentage of the faculty become satisfied with past accomplishments, show a lack of interest in and concern about the students and their intellectual development, and conduct themselves in such an unfair manner as to lose the respect and confidence of right-thinking students, mediocrity is inevitable.
The increasing demand for admission to this Law School makes it imperative that everything reasonably possible be done to limit the privileges of legal training here to those who are conscientious and intellectually curious. Moreover, the increasing financial support, not yet sufficient, makes it more nearly possible to assure a high level performance from the faculty.
I have every reason to believe, therefore, that those of you who graduate hereafter will be justified in feeling a sente of pride and accomplishment and that the caliber of legal service in this state will be materially improved.
Sincerely, Page Keeton
