In August, 1859,t he trustees of The University of Georgia voted to establish a law school "in which facilities for the best legal education would be afforded." This year The University of Georgia School of Law celebrates its 125th anniversary. Great challenges lie ahead for the school as the nation enters a period of declining law school enrollments and continued state fiscal uncertainty, but there is good reason to suppose that the University trustees who set the school on course in the middle of the nineteenth century would be please with the progress of the institution over the past century and a quarter. Measured by the quality of its study body, faculty, and facilities, The University of Georgia School of Law has taken its place among the best state institutions of legal education in the nation. This 1983-84 annual report reviews the accomplishments of the past year and discusses the problem areas that must be addressed in coming years.
