Dear Members:
It is a pleasure to greet each of you with the Section's new publication, The Advocate. It
has been a long time coming but with this, the first of four quarterly publications, I am
hopeful that you will begin to appreciate your membership in the section. May each of you
find this first edition a harbinger of things to come.
We are attempting not only to publish articles of interest to most litigators, but also to begin
regional seminars on matters of interest to litigators. Efforts are being made to steer the
section toward a more general outlook rather than to a more specialized outlook, such as
plaintiff or defendant's personal injury practice or to criminal defense practice. In addition,
it is my hope that the section will have a strong voice in solving the problems of delivering
better services to our clients at more reasonable prices. In the past ten years we have
seen the change from the trial lawyer to being more of the 'litigator. As that change
has occurred, we have found the cost of services escalating dramatically to the point
where it is very difficult for an individual to prosecute or defend any type of claim. Precious
few individuals can now afford to litigate in federal court.
I welcome each of you to what I hope will be a very active section. I solicit your views as
does our publications committee, consisting of Professor Bob Galligan of St. Mary's
University, Eugene Cook of Houston, and Ric Handler of Dallas. Please let us know of your
interests in various subjects.
It is the design of the Publications Committee to provide the litigation section membership
with practical articles related to the preparation and trial of lawsuits. In order to be more
responsive to the needs of our membership, we solicit your ideas and suggestions for
articles. Please don't be bashful (trial lawyers are never bashful, are they?) if you would like
to submit an article for publication. All that is necessary is to call or write the editor to
discuss the topic and obtain a deadline for your article.
We would like to include reports from the various judicial, legislative, and State Bar
committees which are discussing and proposing changes that would affect trial lawyers. If
the chairman or an authorized member of any such committee would contact the editor,
we would be most happy to include a report from your committee.
The Advocate will also include a section on recent decisions addressing trial procedure
and evidentiary issues. It is not our intention to include all appellate cases dealing with
those subjects; we will try to include recent significant decisions that will aid our education
in evidence and procedure, insofar as space will permit.
Again, if you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact anyone on the Publications

Publications Committee
