That modern civilization is drifting toward a relational society, organized on corporation lines is the belief of Roscoe Pound, dean of the Law School, who addressed the Boston Bar Association in the Parker House yesterday. "Workers are engaged in corporate enterprises today," he said. "Nobody owns a business nowadays, he owns shares in a business."
Dean Pound also refuted the criticism that too many courses on ancient laws are given by declaring that the corporations are the outgrowth of the feudal system in which each tenant owned shares of land.
Besides Dean Pound, speakers on legal topics included Judge E. R. Finch, presiding justice of the appelate division of New York city; Judge C. W. Parker of the supreme court of New Jersey, and Judge W. G. Terrell of the Florida supreme court. R. G. Dodge, president of the association, presided.
