Law Faculty Club
Law Faculty Club
During the past year the Club's activities have been attended with a very pleasing success, and it is now hoped that with the social functions on a sound basis, the Club may be able to devote more time to other matters in the direction of "promoting the welfare of law students in academical activities."
The Annual Law Ball organised by a committee comprising two committee members of the Club and two of the Wellington Law Students' Society was an outstanding success, in fact it would be safe to say that it was the most successful yet held; and as a result the sum of £20 was paid into the Building Fund.
The success of the second annual dinner has placed this function on a firm footing and we may confidently expect it to become a permanent event in the Faculty. Although for financial reasons the committee was somewhat restricted in making the necessary arrangements this year, it was a most enjoyable evening, all the speeches being of a particularly high quality. It is hoped that the Club will be in a position to subsidise the dinner next year and thus improve the quality while still keeping it within the scope of the law student's pocket.
The problem of obtaining degree hoods for use at the Capping Ceremony is one which troubles graduands every year. This year the Club had four manufactured at a very reasonable price, to be hired to graduands each year, and they have already proved their worth at the last ceremony.
As a result of representations to the Professorial Board, students other than law students have been asked to refrain from sitting in the law section of the library so that budding barristers may now study their law reports in peace.
The Club has not arranged any addresses this year as activities of this nature are carried out very efficiently by the Wellington Law Students' Society with which the Club co-operates.
