THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO SCHOOL OF
                                   LAW



                            ACCREDITATION

        The  School has met the standards of the American Bar Association and of
the Association of American Law  Schools. The School has been fully accredited
since 1948.

                          AIMS   AND   METHODS

        Lawyers  who function in their profession, whether as private practitioners
or public servants, are an integral part of the system by which a democratic society
governs itself. If they are to properly discharge the responsibilities of this role, their
education for the profession must be broad  and intensive. In its breadth, that
education must encompass  a full understanding of and belief in the democratic
respect for individual personality and the democratic processes designed to allow
individuals to develop and participate in a free, self-governing society. In its
intensification it must impart a high degree of competence in the craftsmanship of
the law in those skills and insights essential to an adequate performance of the
lawyer's function as advocate, judge, legislator, teacher, administrator, or civic
leader. Such education neither begins nor ends in the law school, and the School of
Law  is continually concerned not only with its own curriculum but also with the
quality of pre-legal education and with the continuing self-education that should be
pursued by  all members of the profession. Consequently, students are urged to
enter the School with as broad a cultural and educational background as possible.
Accordingly, the basic requirement for admission is now a baccalaureate degree
from an approved college or university. The student will spend the equivalent of six
semesters of study in the School of Law in courses designed to bring the teachings
of history, philosophy, and the social sciences to bear upon the solution of legal
problems  and to develop the skills and insights essential to research, analysis,
synthesis, criticism, and exposition. Due to the low ratio of students to teachers
(fewer than 15 to 1), substantially more individual and small group work is possible
in the School than in most  law schools. For application materials and further
