A Little Holiday "Cheer" from a Grumpy Ralph Nader: "A lawyer's role is to look out for the administration of justice"The Connecticut Law Tribune's Patrick R. Linsey reports on Ralph Nader's visit to the University of Connecticut School of Law in Ralph Nader Calls Out Legal Profession, Law Schools.
