Zerkin: Ned, how is the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law attempting to provide legal services for the poor?

Wolf : The Lawyers' Committee was founded by two leading representatives of the establishment bar-Bernard G.

For the first five years, the Lawyers' Committee sent lawyers to represent blacks and civil rights workers in the South.
