© 1978 Paul R. Verkuil. This Article grows out of a consultant report submitted
to the Commission on Law and the Economy of the American Bar Association, but the
views expressed herein are solely those of the author and should not be attributed to the
Commission or the ABA. For further background, the reader is directed to the Commission's
draft report on regulatory procedures, which was presented to the ABA for discussion in August
1978. The author expresses his gratitude to the North Carolina Law Center, which funded
earlier related research, and to the Columbia University Center for Law and Economic Studies,
which supplied hospitable research surroundings. Invaluable criticism and encouragement from
Walter Gellhorn and Peter Strauss of the Columbia law faculty and Judge Henry Friendly
and David Ginsburg of the Commission are also gratefully acknowledged.
