THE Author prepares Candidates for these Examinations in Class or by means of Cor. respondence through the Post. The following table shows the success of his Pupils for the Final during 1881 :
These 25 Honormen included two Clifford's Inn Prizemen, one New Inn Prizeman, besides several Prizemen of the Incorporated Law Society.
In June there were only 6 Prizemen, and of these two were Pupils of the Author. In November there were 12 Prizemen, and of these three were the Author's Pupils.
At the Intermediate Examinations also, during 1881, great success attended Mr. GIBSON'S Pupils, notwithstanding the large percentage postponed: thus, at the November Intermediate 35 Pupils were sent up and 33 passed.
CLASS PREPARATION. In Class Preparation the work is thoroughly and sytematically done, and all idea of preparing on a mere " Cram” system is discarded, a mode of preparation dangerous as far as the Examination is concerned, and entirely useless for other purposes. Students desirous of joining any particular class are requested to communicate as early as possible with Mr. GIBSON, so that he may map out their work till the class begins and also keep a vacancy in the class. Classes commence three months beforehand (fee £12:128.), and a Special Class one inonth before the Examination (fee £6: 68.). The fee for two months is £10: 108. Classes at present meet, and will probably continue to meet, every day except Saturday: A Special Final Class commences four months before the Examination (fee £16: 168.).
POSTAL PREPARATION. This is carried out by weekly (or more or less frequent) correspondence. The work for each week is allotted for the Pupil to follow. Papers of questions and notes bearing on the week are sent him. His attention is drawn to cases and statutes of importance, and generally he is taken through all the subjects as carefully as he would be in Class Preparation. Great success has attended the Author's Postal Pupils, and by way of illustration it is only necessary to refer to the November Examinations last year, at which, out of 22 Postal Pupils sent up, 21 passed, four of them obtaining Honors, one being Clifford's Inn Prizeman. To take the Student carefully through Stephen's - Commentaries, the Six Months' course of Weekly Correspondence is recommended. Fee, £10:10s.
The Fee for Weekly Correspondence for Three Months is £6: 108.; for Weekly Correspondence for One Year (the time recommended for the Final) the fee is £16:168.; and for Fortnightly Correspondence, £12: 128.
Fees are payable in advance, except for Postal Preparation when the correspondence extends over Six Months, the fees being then payable quarterly in advance.
PARTICULARS. Further particulars can be obtained on application, either personally or by letter, at 35, Southamptoa Buildings, Chancery Lane, where the Classes are held.
PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION. Pupils for this Examination are prepared by the Author's brother, Mr. JOHN GIBSON, M.A., Bromley, Kent, to whom application must be made for particulars.
At the October Preliminary, out of 12 Resident and Class Pupils, 11 passed.
TO THE THIRD EDITION.
WHEN the Examination Committee of the Law Society selected Stephen's Commentaries on the Laws of England as the subject for the Intermediate Examination, it appeared to the Author of this Guide that it was the intention to make that Examination a very searching one, otherwise so wide and difficult a subject would not have been chosen. With this belief he prepared the last Edition of the “Intermediate Law Examination Made Easy” on so thorough and systematic a plan, that the Student who used it could not fail to have his attention drawn to every point on which there was any chance of a question being asked.
The Examinations which have been held on Stephen's during the last two years have proved that the Author's anticipations were correct, the questions asked having been of such a searching nature that only those candidates who had prepared their work on some thorough system could have possibly acquired the requisite number of marks. As far as can be gathered, there is no chance of the questions at the Examinations becoming easier or the standard of marks lowered, and, therefore, in preparing the present Edition, it has been thought desirable not to materially deviate from the course of work laid down in the last Edition, whereby the Student is taken carefully through the Commentaries from beginning to end, no point of importance being passed over. In one or two particulars,
