Gould Patricia Albjerg Graham Barbara V. Hertz Catharine R. Stimpson Martha Peterson, ex oflicio The Second Feasibility Meeting of the Barnard Lawyers‘ Committee was held on November 16th to discuss the formation of a comittee, to be a subsidiary of the Women's Center, which would provide women's legal services. We are enclosing a copy of the report of that meeting and also a questionnaire which we would like you to fill out and return to us. Even if you don't have time in your busy schedule to take case referrals or do research on a regular basis, we would like to know where your interests lie and what you feel the Barnard Lawyers‘ Committee should be doing. Please use the questionnaire to indicate your availability, your interests, and your comments. We are hoping that the Committee can begin to function and become a reality for the beginning of the new year. Your interest and your time, however little, are essential to the success of this project. We look forward to hearing from you. There will be an announcement soon of the next Lawyers‘ Committee Meeting. NOTE: Sincerely, Catharine R.
