    Congratulations to the authors and to The American Lawyer for this marvelous reporting. I’m often disappointed by what passes for analysis of the legal industry’s performance and issues. But the long-term, data-grounded trends reported here and the authors’ accompanying interpretations and hypotheses are illuminating and persuasive. Our industry needs, deserves and craves the insights available from such good research. Well done!
