WELLINGTON, October 18. The Wellington Law Society have officially informed the Justice Department that they, are opposed to any change in the law relating to the admission of barristers on the ground before stated— viz , that it puts a man in a position of being able tj advise and be wholly irresponsible for his advice. The law should be satisfied. that a man's standard of edncation is such as to cause the presumption that he is qualified for the post. The society point out that to allow a solicitor who has practised for seven years admission as a barrister is a retrograde step; that a knowledge of the academical branches of the profession ia absolutely necessary, and the service of artiolea of great advantage.
