in comprise The Law Student's first selection from the several thousand making up recent state bar examinations furnished us by the various state boards of examiners. Other questions will be printed in succeeding issues, and an endeavor will be made to avoid any duplication through printing questions varying
from preceding ones as to the facts, but involving the same or closely related principles of law. Thus the questions published each school year, if cut out and preserved, will constitute an examination of very wide scope, to run over which, and the references for answers, will serve to revivify the student's
knowledge of the law.
These questions stand unchanged as they came to us. We have made no effort either to choose simple ones or ones very complex and involved, but rather have sought to produce a group truly representative of, if somewhat shorter than, the average bar examination. It is our opinion that we have succeeded in this no very difficult task -and it is most certainly true that any student who answer the greater part of these questions in respectable fashion, giving sound reasons
for his views of the law on
A, having executed in due form a deed of gift of real estate to his son C, said to X: "Take this deed and keep it; if I get well, I will call for it; if I don't, give it to C." A was then ill, and died within a few days thereafter of the same illness, survived by B his widow, and C and D their only children, and X then handed the deed to C, the grantee, who caused it to be recorded. D commenced an action in court; the prayer of the petition was for cancellation of the deed and record; that C be compelled to convey to D an undivided one-half of the lands. Decide the case. (See "Deeds," 18 C. J. section 114.)
By order of a city council a certain street is vacated, for the reason that it appeared to the council that there was a necessity for its vacation, the proceeding being regular in form. A certain property owner applies for injunctive relief, upon the ground that the discontinuance of the street causes him much inconvenience and obligates him to travel in a circuitous route to get to the business portion of the city. Can he recover? (See "Municipal Corporations," 28 CYC pp. 840, 841, text and note

The company became insolvent and a receiver was appointed. There being a deficiency on B's mortgage, he filed a claim under his guaranty with the receiver, which the latter disallowed on the ground that the transaction was ultra vires the corporation.

the page and section citations here given with the questions.
The better way is not to use these citations at all to find the correct answers, but to search Corpus Juris-Cyc independently for your answers, as the practicing lawyer does, and then to use the citations to test your own accuracy of search. If this is done, your work with these specimen bar examination questions not only will have tested your substantive knowledge of the law, but also will have served as direct training in legal research.
Students who have taken
are taking Dr. Kiser's course in legal research have been or are being instructed in the scientific and proper method of using Corpus JurisCyc to find an authoritative exposition of any given point of law. For the benefit of others it may be said, briefly, that the first step is to determine the exact principle of law involved in the given state of facts, that the second step is to determine the exact subdivision or title of the law within which such principle is embraced (using the Law Chart to guard against overlooking obscure titles and for purposes of suggestion) and that the third step is to run down the analysis of the article of the title itself as printed in Corpus Juris-Cyc until an analysis-line pointing to treatment of the desired principle is found.
The student who does this conscientiously as to each of these specimen questions after he has written down his answer thereto will be amazed at the benefits of will derive from the process. In the first place, he will be training himself rigorously in precise legal analysis-something in which most students and young lawyers, even most lawyers of an older growth, are woefully deficient. And, in the second place, the repeated running down of analysis-lines in Corpus Juris-Cyc will serve as a rapid review of the subjects and titles thus scanned, refreshing recollection of them and their constituent rules and principles, keeping the whole body of the law a vital possession of the individual's mind, and not a mere series of past studies, the latest alone remembered.
Dr. Kiser's treatise, "Principles and practice of Legal Research," comprising certain lectures, a reprint of the Law Chart, and of certain specimen pages of Corpus Juris-Cyc, has been furnished to students taking his search course; on request The Law Student will forward a numbers.

They owned in fee simple the lot and store thereon in which the business was conducted, and also the stock of goods. The business was not paying expenses. A executed and acknowledged an instrument under seal therein describing the real estate, signing the firm name and the name of each of the partners, and delivered the instrument to a purchaser for adequate consideration for the purpose of conveying the real estate. Did the purchaser get a good title? (See "Partnership," 30 CYC pp. 486, 8, text and notes 79-85; p. 494, text and notes 20-23.)

Afterwards, A sold the automobile to C, who promised, in the presence of B, to pay to B the balance due on A's contract, and B assented to the arrangement, and said he would take C for his debtor. C failed to pay B when the debt became due, and B demands payment from A. Can he enforce his demand in law? (See "Novation," 29 CYC p. 1138, text and notes 55, 56.)
