In the December issue of Student Lawyer, the Law
Student Division published a copy of the resolutions
passed by the executive board of the organization
following their annual meeting. Unfortunately, one
resolution was missing. It reads as follows:
WHEREAS, the American Bar Association is vitally
and actively interested in ways and means of bringing
about the improvements of the legal profession; and
WHEREAS, the Standards for the Approval of Law
Schools by the American Bar Association are promul-
gated in pursuance of that objective; and
WHEREAS, a draft of the proposed revision of the
American Bar Association Standards for the Approval of
Law Schools is being considered by the Section of Legal
Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American
Bar Association; and
WHEREAS, rigid adherence to those presently
Existing and Proposed Standards relating to Library
Facilities significantly increases the cost of obtaining a
legal education; and
WHEREAS, many public and/or private library
facilities exist which meet or exceed said American Bar
Association Library Standards and are readily available
to law students;
RESOLVED, that rigid adherence to a Standard
which would require each law school to acquire and
maintain a minimum library without consideration of
other readily available public and/or private library
facilities would not be reasonably adapted to the
American Bar Association objective of bringing about
the improvement of the legal profession.
RESOLVED, that, for the purpose of complying
with the American Bar Association Library Standards,
the Approving Agency should consider the public and/or
private library facilities accessible to the institution in
At no time in our nation's history have our courts been
so challenged as they are today. There is a genuine need

to inform the public fully about how our judicial system
is meeting to a large degree the heavy demands being
placed upon it.
In an effort to help restore much needed public
confidence in the courts, and to foster greater public
understanding of our judicial system, the main thrust of
all 1973 Law Day U.S.A. programs will be centered on a
single, all-embracing, court theme:
Participating state and local bar associations in Law
Day '73 programs will be asked to build their events
around the 1973 Law Day theme. State and federal trial
court judges will be invited to join with local bar
associations in presenting meaningful programs which
will explain the day-to-day workings of the courts,
pinpoint the many faceted problems facing the judiciary
today, and enlist the aid of all citizens in resolving the
The Conference of Chief Justices, The Judicial
Conference of the United States, Administrative Office
of the United States Courts, and The Federal Judicial
Center, have been invited to cooperate and assist in the
16th annual nationwide Law Day observance next May 1
through the presentation of courtroom programs, out-
of-courtroom events, and talks keyed to the Law Day
A special effort will be made again in 1973 to
encourage all law schools throughout the country to
participate in meaningful Law Day programs, hopefully
on a campus-wide basis. An invitation also has been
extended to all universities, colleges and junior colleges
to take part in the observance.
The Law Student Division will spearhead the pre-
sentation of Law Day programs on some 160 ABA
accredited and non- accredited law school campuses. In
addition, the Law Student Division will contact universi-
ties, colleges and junior colleges which do not have law
schools, within a 50 mile radius of the participating law
school, to invite their support of the observance. Special
awards will again be presented for law school programs
selected by the Law Student Division/American Bar
Association circuit governors in each of the 13 regional
circuits. Also, national awards will be presented for the
most outstanding programs at the annual meeting of the
Law Student Division/American Bar Association in
