The undersigned, under the sanction of the Board of Trustees, will open in Athens, on 1st of October next, a Law School, in connection with the University of Georgia. Believing that such a school is demanded by the wants of the profession and of the State, and looking alone to its own income for the reward of our labor, we shall devote our energies to the effort, which we will not lightly abandon. We expect success only by deserving it. If we deserve it, we shall not fear obtaining it.
