To:  Better Way Study Steering Committee
From: Tom Rowe
Re: Progress report and memo on working groups
This is to report on developments since our September meet-
ing and to circulate materials concerning the small group ses-
sions we discussed then.  In brief, since the full Steering Com-
mittee met: 1) Arlin Adams, Geoff Hazard, Pat Head, Paul Wolkin,
and I met in Philadelphia in early November to discuss some of
the logistics and finances of proceeding with the small group
meetings and the larger conference; 2) I prepared an interim re-
port to the Council, which is one of the enclosed materials and
which will provide background for an oral report on the project
that Judge Adams and I will present to the Council in Philadel-
phia on Wednesday, December 10; and 3) Pat Head has contacted
Northwestern Law School about serving as a site for the meeting
on the legal culture topic we discussed at our September meet-
. ing and has received an initial favorable response. I understand
that he plans to contact Dean Pitofsky at Georgetown shortly
about having our session on administrative dispute processing
there, and that Judge Adams expects to see retired Chief Justice
Burger soon about support for the study.
Enclosed with this memo are three items:    1) a memorandum
which attempts to develop the ideas for small group meetings, in
terms of both their substantive focus and how they could proceed;
2) a list of persons who spoke at or attended the National Sym-
posium on Civil Justice Issues at Fordham Law School last spring,
which could be a valuable source on people whom we might want to
invite to one of our small group sessions, the final conference,
or -both; and 3) the interim report to the Council on our Study,
which has been distributed to the Council of the Institute as
part of the background materials for its December meeting.
To make the most economical use of your time: I am not re-
questing or even suggesting that you look at all three items. In
particular, the first memorandum is essentially an expanded ver-
sion of the interim report to the Council, so you should not feel
under any obligation to read the latter. I include it because I
do think you should have available to you what the Council is be-
ing told about our study; if you look at the report and have any
thoughts concerning what Judge Adams and I should cover at the
Council meeting, I'd be glad to hear from you.   (My office phone
is 919: 684-5362.)    In the oral report, I do plan to include
