The need and utility of fact research in the study of law administration was graphically presented in these pages some months ago by Dean Charles E. Clark. In that article Dean Clark in presenting a preliminary report of a study of a large number of court records, made the following statement: "These records are capable of use for at least two important purposes. They may be used to illustrate and to test the efficacy of our rules of procedure and our general methods of administering justice. And they may be used, second, as starting points for the further detailed investigation of social problems of many and varied kinds."
