Closing the
Communications Gap
Over the past year it has become clear that greater
communication and coordination between the ABA/
YLS and state and local bar organizations can save
everyone effort and greatly increase productivity. The
new newsletter, The Affiliate, is designed to meet the
communication problems caused by the limited time and
resources and geographical separation of the ABA/YLS
The Affiliate will be sent every six weeks to all
officers of state and local YLS organizations. Through
this, and our regional affiliates' meeting, we hope the
ABA/YLS can operate as a clearinghouse and national
source of research material to enhance the ability of
affiliates to get their jobs done.
This year many of the leadership responsibilities rest
with the young lawyers who have been presidents of
You, the affiliate leaders understand the needs of
ABA/YLS affiliates and how the ABA/YLS can best
serve those needs.
In this first issue you can find the names of people to
contact concerning specific needs you may have. We
intend to provide a continuous list of resource people as
various projects and ideas are developed. We need to
hear from you about your projects and materials that
would be interesting to your counterparts in other
Please contact me directly on any YLS matter of
interest to you. We, of the ABA/YLS view our primary
duty as being of service to you. We need to know if our
job is being done correctly or how best you feel we can
improve. Moreover, it is downright encouraging to know
that our activities are of interest to you.

YLS Regional
Five regional workshops have been scheduled during the
coming year by ABA/YLS and various state and local
These workshops have been designed to permit an
interchange of ideas between the national leadership and

Chairman William Ide and other executive board
members will be available as resources consultants to the
affiliate leadership. The national leadership will in turn
utilize the skills of the local leadership to obtain
concepts to improve the national programming.
The emphasis at the conferences will be on relaying
information about successful projects undertaken by the
affiliates and the Section to other affiliates to give them
ideas about successfully implementing new projects.
Individuals from the Section and affiliates responsible
for their projects will be present to describe the
significance of their projects and provide detailed how-
to-do-it information about the successful execution of
these projects on a state or local level.
Substantially all of the projects being undertaken by
the Section for the 1976 Bar Year are designed for
implementation at the state or local level through
committees established by the affiliates.
The projects which the Section will emphasize for
state and local implementation will include:
(1) Projects for reforming the rights of mental
patients under the direction of the Section's Mental
Health Committee;
(2) Providing delivery of legal services to low and
middle income persons, including the elderly, under
the direction of the Section's Delivery of Legal
Services Committee;
(3) Reforming aspects of our criminal justice system
under the direction of the Section's Criminal Justice
(4) Informing law students and recent law school
graduates of their professional responsibilities and
conduct under the direction of the Section's Ethics
Committee; and
(5) Exposing young people to the legal system under
the direction of the Section's High School Law and
Explorer Law Committees.
We solicit your ideas as to how the affiliates can best
be served during the 1-1/2 day regional meetings. The
schedule is set forth below. Please call Charles S.
