Now, this matter of the unauthorized practice of law is a matter for the protection of the public from the incompetent and the unqualified. It is not a committee that acts to see that the lawyers maintain and keep their business. Some people seem to think that this is the idea. It isn't. A lawyer's business has been decreasing in the forty-five years I have been around here. I have seen things taken away from the lawyers. But that is not the purpose of this Committee to remedy that situation, but rather to attempt to protect the public from the incompetent and unqualified.
