THE EDITOR'S VIEWPOINT
  Since 1962, the year in which the Section of General
Practice was created, our Section has passed several milestones.
  On July 1, 1964, our Section joined forces with the Young
Lawyers Section to publish, on a quarterly basis, a new
publication-Law Notes. October 1964 saw the distribution of
our first issue. That issue, and the subsequent issues, have
attempted to print articles of practical and immediate assist-
ance to our readers.
  Since the first issue of Law Notes was distributed over 4
years ago this month, we have published over 140 articles; We
have covered some 16 general areas of the law, with each area
of law covered by at least 3 articles.
  Law Notes currently is distributed to over 50,000 members
of our Section and the Young Lawyers Section.
  In December 1964 our Section membership was approxi-
mately 2,100. Our membership now stands in excess of 8,000.
We have hopes of passing the 10,000 level before 1970. While
membership statistics standing alone are not important, the
tremendous growth experienced by our Section during its first
six years does suggest that our Section is providing meaningful
services to our membership.
  During the Summer of 1966, our Section initiated a new
publication-Docket Call-to bring important case notes and
digested legal items to the attention of our members. Under
the able direction of Harry Wright, III, Columbus, Ohio,
Docket Call has become an important new service provided by
our Section.
  As a result of the Section's Annual Meeting in Philadelphia,
important programs are planned for 1968-69, such as:

1. Continued discussions of Group Legal Services programs in
   the interests of advocating the position of general prac-
   titioners.
2. Careful attention to the pending concepts of Certification
   of Specialists.
3. Study of the value of increased use of lay personnel in law
   offices, working under the supervision of lawyers.
4. Sponsorship of a 2 1/2 day conference in Chicago on
   January 22-24, 1968, to discuss problems of interest to
   general practitioners.

   The leaders of our Section are committed to advances during
the next six years that equal or surpass the developments and
achievements of our past years. My staff and I at Law Notes
hope that our publication will, in the coming months, play its
part in this endeavor.
