E. B. Pickett, Jr. Law School Exams (1898-1899) contain ten examinations and review questions on various subjects like torts and partnership from E. B. Pickett Jr.’s senior year at the University of Texas Department of Law in 1899. During Pickett’s time at the University, the Law Department held classes in the basement of the Old Main. The 1890s was a time of growth for Law Department – enrollment tripled compared to a decade earlier, a graduate course in law was added, and additional lecturers were hired. However, because students could take a law examination after their junior year and begin practice, graduation rates remained low. Students who graduated, including E. B. Pickett, were exempt from taking a bar exam.
