The need for simplifying-even streamlining-conveyancing procedure has been all too well recognized for decades, but until the present decade relatively little progress toward a satisfactory system has been achieved. We have continued to labor under the handicaps of an inherited system which has become more cumbersome with each passing year. It is noteworthy, however, that several steps have been put into operation within recent years which have proved extremely fruitful and have, in certain limited areas, introduced thoroughgoing revisions in traditional practices. But in most states the far-reaching improvements necessary to an efficient, simple and fully comprehensive conveyancing system remain largely in the contemplative state. Such particular improvements as have been made and may be made are deserving of appropriate appreciation, but there is growing awareness of an urgency to concentrate emphasis upon designing a larger plan which will bring needed reforms and new techniques to all features of conveyancing procedure.
