The New York Times reports on the October 1, 1891 opening of New York Law School, noting that "[t]he prospect for the new institution is brighter than the most sanguine had hoped for." It notes that "[o]ver 250 students have already enrolled . . . ," adding that "[t]here is hardly a college or university of moment in the country that has not graduates whose names are on the list of students of the new school, and there are several representatives of foreign universities."
