Only 48 Jewish lawyers will be permitted to practice in the Paris courts under an order issued today. The order debars an additional 246 Jewish counsellors. The Paris bar association wanted special dispensations granted to an additional 50 Jews who were ex-servicemen but the French officials objected to having more than 44 – two percent of all the Jewish lawyers in the former French capital.
