Abstract: IT is with a keen appreciation of the vision and spirited activity of the law students of previous courses who started the Law Society and strove to fulfil its aims that we take over the management of the Law Journal. Varied activities in the form of lectures, debates and reading of papers on legal topics particularly marked the first flush of life of our society. This year two very interesting lectures were delivered under the auspices of the Law Society. Prof. W. Buhagiar, who for about the last three years has been Federal Counsel at the Attorney General's office in far-away Malaya, recorded his personal impressions of life in the Federated States against a background of that country's history and constitutional development. Another lecture on "The Privy Council, Criminal Appeals'', was delivered by Prof. A. Mamo, who in his usual lucid way of self-expression gave an account of the constitution, purpose and working of the highest court of appeal in the British Commonwealth. Prof. Mamo had a good opportunity of getting a firsthand knowledge of the subject he treated during his visit to the Privy Council in connection with the now famous Connell Case (1944). We have to deplore, however, the poor attendance at these lectures. not only on the part of members of the Law Society but also of members of the legal profession. Former students of law could sensibly help the University Students' Law Society by subscribing to the Law Journal. An increased circulation of our Journal amongst them would help us meet the very heavy printing expenses for which the University yearly grant is altogether insufficient.
