Bar Distributes Book on State Legal Profession


A total of 1,200 complimentary copies of the book, "And Justice for All: the Legal Profession in Oklahoma, 1821-1989," have been mailed to libraries throughout the state.

"The Oklahoma Bar Association and the Oklahoma Bar Foundation believe the 245-page volume will be a valuable research tool for students and provide the citizens of the state more insight as to the role lawyers have had in the development of our state," said Michael Barrage of Antlers, Okla., the association president.

Author Orben J. Casey of Oklahoma City began research on the volume about 10 years ago. Covering the bench and bar of the five civilized tribes and the practice of white lawyers in Indian Territory, the book spans the history of black lawyers and the emergence of women in the legal profession.

The 47-year-old Wine-Banks, who first achieved fame as an assistant Watergate special prosecutor and later as general counsel to the United States Army, submitted her resignation to L. Stanley Chauvin Jr. of Louisville, Ky., president of the 360,000-member organization.

``Although my tenure at the American Bar Association has been an exciting and challenging time, I am now eager and ready to move on to explore several other exciting opportunities awaiting me,'' she wrote in her letter to Chauvin. She said she had accomplished all the ``major goals'' she had set for the job.

Those goals, she told the newspaper, included devising more long-range planning for the group, streamlining its bureaucracy, reducing its reliance on membership dues, and reaching out to minorities in the legal profession. …
