The subject of my remarks indicates that at some time in the past and as of now advocacy has been practiced. To me advocacy is the backbone and the real strength of justice in this great land of ours. The term "advocate" has been linked with the legal profession—and properly so—from the beginning of time. We are a profession that has always taken an objective point of view, as contrasted with the negative or defensive point of view, to the end that principles and ideals shall be maintained.
