This article is intended to consider the future of group retainers in light of the conflicting views of proponents and opponents. Attention will first be given to the "Canons of Professional Ethics" which affect this subject and the judicial decisions interpreting them. Next, an attempt will be made to evaluate the effect of the Supreme Court Brotherhood case, and other related decisions, upon the Canons. Finally, an effort will be made to anticipate the prospects of group legal service with a view towards implementing or modifying present standards.
