An adequate library is absolutely necessary for the operation of a modern Law School. Fortunately the present quarters and physical equipment are satisfactory due to the generosity of alumni and friends of the Law School. Progress has been made during the past few years in providing essential books, but I wish to point out again certain deficiencies that should be taken care of as soon as possible.
Last fall a survey of the University of Georgia Library was made by the committee on behalf of the American Library Association. The report on page twenty-two contains the following statement concerning the School of Law Library:
"The Survey Committee was greatly impressed by the beauty and efficiency of the Law Library. Wisely administered, reasonably well supported, and housed in comfortable and spacious quarters, it is offering to law students and faculty the equality of service which the University should expect from its General Library..."
For the past three years the faculty of the School of Law of The University of Georgia has been studying the curriculum of this School as well as the curricula of the other leading law schools in the country for the purpose of effecting such revision as seemed desirable to better serve the needs of the students. The bulletin of the Law School, which has been issued recently, gives the details of the new curriculum which has been prepared by the law faculty and approved by the President of the University. Some of the changes were made last year, but the complete reorganization became effective during the current school year. The members of the faculty believe that the changes which have been made will better fit the law graduates to meet present day conditions at the bar and to discharge their social responsibilities.
