About Book

Phil Fennel, Public Law
"Essential reading for anyone involved in teaching or researching the legal profession."

Erwin Chemerinsky, UCLA Law Review
"Breathtaking in its scope and brilliant in its coverage . . . a work that will be regarded as a classic for years to come."

Book Description
Among all those who encounter the law in the conduct of their lives or who consider it as a career, few have a solid understanding of the legal profession in America, and fewer still know anything about systems in other parts of the world. Lawyers in Society offers a concise comparative introduction to the practice of law in a number of countries: England, Germany, Japan, Venezuela, and Belgium.
Extracted from the editors' three highly successful volumes Lawyers in Society, these essays guide readers through the differing worlds of civil and common law, law in Europe and Asia, and first and third world legal systems. One contribution addresses the changing role of women in the profession--women comprise half of all new lawyers in most countries--and the changes they are bringing. A new introduction and concluding essay reflect on the place of this volume in current and future research.
