In this lecture Professor Cheatham discusses the specialization of lawyers, a topic of increasing interest and importance to members of the bar. He concludes that while there is a need for specialists in the practice of law, the general practitioner remains vital to the profession.The author lists problems inherent in specialization including training in a particular area, and coordination and cooperation between the specialist, the client, and the generalist, and emphasizes a need for the bar to take an active part in the solution of these problems.
