LEGAL EDUCATION IN WALES. PROPOSED LEGAL CONFERENCE AT ABERYSTWYTH. A Conference of members of the legal pro- fession is to be held at Aberystwyth on May 4th to consider the advancement of legal education in Wales. Among those who hope to attend the Con- ference are the President of the Law Society, the Principal and Director of Legal Studies, the President of the Swansea and Neath Law Society, and several other leading representatives of the profession. Three matters will arise for discussion, first, the facilities which now exist for granting degrees in Law to Students about to enter the legal profession second, the provision of Lectures on various branches of the law to those who have already been articled or have begun practice and third, the appropriation towards these two objects of the grants of money now annually made by the Law Society on account of the work already done at Aberystwyth and Swansea, where lectures on the English Law are now regularly given by Professor Levi. At present the Faculty of Law at Aber- ystwyth possesses four groups of students- 1. Students who are taking the University degrees in Law. 2. Students who are studying law for the Home or Indian or Colonial Services, a sphere in which already very gratifying success has been achieved. 3. Articled Clerks of North Wales and Mid Wales. for whom special courses of lectures in Law are held at Aberystwyth. 4. Articled Clerks of South Wales, for whom special courses of lectures in Law are held at the Law Courts, Swansea. All these deprrtments are being carried on during the present year, and resulting in- crease of work calls for this Conference, in order to secure the approval and co-opera- tion of all who are interested in legal education. It is understood that all solicitors prac- tising in Wales are invited to the Conference, and there is every reason to believe that a large number will attend to support the President of the Law Society.
