After a discussion of the history of uniform procedural rules and the authority of the Supreme Court to promulgate uniform appellate rules, Professor Cohn discusses some of the problems of expense and delay which are found in the appellate system today. In his analysis of the Proposed Uniform Rules of Federal Appellate Procedure, the author gives special emphasis to those areas where the rules constitute a departure from present practice. In addition, several changes are suggested in areas in which the author believes further improvement can be made.
