The Report (that this is a Preface for) is known familiarly as the MacCrate Report, after the Task Force’s revered chairperson, Robert MacCrate, a leader of the bar in New York City and a former president of the American Bar Association. The Report was the result of almost three years of research, study and reflection by a group of twenty-seven of the most distinguished and experienced law school deans and faculty members, judges and practicing attorneys in the United States.
The MacCrate Report not only was hugely ambitious, it also has been tremendously influential, particularly on legal education in the United States.
