Mr. Ernst states flatly that the lawyers of the country have either abandoned or lost their role of leadership. He traces this to a number of causes: failure to communicate ideas to the public; use of the committee process which is antithetical to leadership by its nature; the refusal of the best lawyers to handle negligence cases or serve as defense counsel in mine-run criminal trials; the denigration of new lawyers by established leaders of the Bar. What is needed, Mr. Ernst declares, is a leader with fire in his belly to let the people know that the legal profession does really care about truth and justice.
