The article highlights the 50 Catholic Professional schools in the U.S. All schools are required to be real service to their prospective students and to those who direct them. Five out of 50 are for medicine, six for dentistry, nine for sociology, nine for engineering and twenty-one for law. Moreover, the author implies that law schools are numerous enough, but there is a demand, which the mechanical age will deepen, for more schools in engineering.
