In what follows an attempt is made first to arrive at an estimate of the pattern and the volume of trade in atomic equipment and services in the areas and for the period under discussion (1960-1970); and then a brief survey is attempted of the principal problems affecting this trade. Most of what is discussed is not the usual stuff of a legal periodical. But it will be apparent that a great deal of it has important implications for lawyers and lawyering. In any case one may be forgiven, perhaps, for trying to describe in skeletal form the context in which a large volume of important legal transactions of interest to lawyers in the atomic field will take place during the next decade.
