It is at once obvious that the subject matter encompassed by the above title is so vast that the most that can possibly be done here is to make a few suggestions that may prove helpful to the younger and more inexperienced members of the bar. It is with that thought in mind, and with a profound sense of inadequacy, that I offer the following suggestions. It likewise should be noted that many of the suggestions here made were, in the first instance, the brain children of others—I have simply adopted these brain children who were given birth by older, more erudite, and experienced lawyers.
