§ Order of the Day for the Second Reading, read.
§ LORD MACNAGHTEN
said, in moving the Second Reading, that the Bill had been promoted by the Incorporated Law Society. Its object was to enable that Society to exempt from one of their examinations, either in whole or part, persons who had obtained law degrees at one of the Universities of the United Kingdom. The Bill had passed the other House.
§ Moved, "That the Bill be now read 2a."—(The Lord Macnaghten.)
§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR (Lord HERSCHELL)
The only observation I have to make upon the Bill is that it limits the power of the Incorporated Law-Society to except persons from examination to cases where a University examination had been passed before entering into articles or into partnership.
§ Motion agreed to; Bill read 2a accordingly, and committed to a Committee of the Whole House on Friday next.
