How to Study Law is a question of import ance to an ever increasing number of persons who desire a practical and inexpensive method of fitting themselves for the legal profession. The same question is also suggesting itself to persons who are, or expect to be, established in other callings, who wish to understand their privileges and responsibilities under the law, and the legal ties that regulate their varied business and social relations. This book — introducing' the Home Law School Series — seeks to answer this question in a manner at once practical and satisfactory to students in every sphere and condition of life. The Series, it is hoped, will aid the law office student and the law school student, as well as that great class of persons who are unable to have the advantages of either school or office instruc tion. The time has arrived in America in which a person who wishes to succeed must be able to think as well as 'act. The law offers a large and expanding field for the development of charac ter and personality, and a knowledge of it is as beneficial from the standpoint of a liberal educa 'tion as from that of a life calling.
