The American Bar Association exists for two reasons: to serve our profession and to serve the public. And I would, first of all, bring you up to date in capsule form on what our association is today. It is 88,000 lawyers, and I hope we can shove that over 100,000 before the year is over. It is a great new law center in Chicago with more than 100 employees. It is 35,000 members of our American Law Student Association. It is the American Bar Foundation, which can do basic research in all fields of law. It is the American Bar endowment, which raises money to help pay for these research programs.
