    This key report is available on the Web only in excerpt format. In book form, 414 pages long, it masterfully summarizes the history and composition of the legal profession and of legal education and continuing legal education. The centerpiece of the Task Force report is the Statement of Fundamental Lawyering Skills and Professional Values. The report groups essential skills under these headings: problem solving, legal analysis and reasoning, legal research, factual investigation, communication, counseling, negotiation, litigation and alternative dispute resolution procedures, organization and management of legal work, and recognizing and resolving ethical dilemmas. Fundamental values are grouped under the headings: provision of competent representation, striving to promote justice, fairness, and morality, striving to improve the profession, and professional self-development.
