CHAIRMAN'S COMMENT


Reports submitted to the Council or to me indicate that
the affairs of the Section were running smoothly at mid-
term. Many of our substantive committees have held
very successful midwinter
meetings where scholarly papers
were presented and spirited dis-
cussions took place. Several of
the papers, as well as the annual
reports of committees, will find
their way into the Section's new
journal-The Labor Lawyer.
  The first issue of The Labor
Lawyer was enthusiastically re-
ceived by our members. Editor Elliot Bredhoff
Bob Rabin, the Board of Editors and the contributors
are to be commended for such an auspicious launching
of the journal. The second issue will be in your hands


shortly and the third issue will go to press in July. Pro-
fessor Rabin states that each of the early issues will show
improvements over prior ones. In particular, every ef-
fort is being made to see that committee reports are pub-
lished in a timely and comprehensive manner.
  Our renowned Section treatises are selling briskly, as
indicated elsewhere in this Newsletter. (see Section
Publications, page 5) We look forward with anticipa-
tion to our next major treatise on occupational safety
and health law which is scheduled for publication early
next year. Preliminary work also is in progress for
development of a treatise on the Employee Retirement
Income Security Act.
  At its Midwinter Meeting, the Council approved an
exciting new project proposed by our Committee on
                         (continued on page 6)
