From Our Editors

While never turning away from its earlier concerns, during the years 1970-1995 the City Bar became a role model for bar associations throughout the United States by directly providing legal services for the poor while at the same time becoming vastly more inclusive in its membership and leadership. The author vividly describes the City Bar's contribution to national events such as its 'march' on Washington against the Vietnam War and the battles against the nominations of G. Harold Carswell and Robert Bork to the Supreme Court.
