The law Htudents hae this year en larged upon their annual practice work and will soon be engaged In pleading the cause nt right nnd Justice with fer vid eloquence nnd profound earnestness of argument. They expect to conduct trials after the regular order, having their own Judges and nil the nccommo dntlons that go with a regular session of court. By this practice work they exppct to gain an Intuition Into how It seems to conduct a trial under pres sure. Instead of limiting their opera tions o the theoretical points of a case. Prisoners will be tried and convicted at their hands, juries corrupted and lovers torn from each other's arms by the relentless severity of the law. They Intend conducting trlnls cover ing the points of law that they have encountered In their courses of studv. The walls of the room have been firmly braced and by means of copious venti lation the outward pressure will be re duced and equalized. Before their awe some tribunal the pathos and woe of human existence will be aired In their numerous and varied lights, as the judges, bound by strictest oaths to do their duty, shall measure out justice in an impaitial manner. In one point, however, will the advo cates of, the law department excel their big brothers of the actual practice They will not have any sordid motives of gain by wayB of fees or compensation to actuate them to pleading the dis honorable and evil causes and prevent In gthe ways of justice to accomplish their own ends. The contests will be ones of logic and mental acutness alone and the winners can rejoice In the glory of their victories.
