In this swiftly moving age, with its revolutionary advances in so many diverse fields of activity, it is well to pause and reflect upon the Role of the Law in American life. Unfortunately, in our pre-occupation with daily chores, we miss the trees for the forest, for to a large extent the Lawyer's time is taken up with private interests which, while important to the individual, do not touch the great and vital issues affecting the community. Yet no Lawyer can have any real pride in his profession unless he has the capacity for interpreting to himself and to his fellow Americans the full Majesty and Meaning of the Law.
