Every failure of civil rights is at bottom a reflection on the legal profession. The last census revealed approximately 160,00 lawyers in the United States, or one lawyer for about 760 of population. These lawyers reside in every community, large and small; they are in contact with every class of the people; and they take part in every individual and group struggle.
