Comparative Sociology of Legal Professions: a 30-year perspective

 

Abstract

 

In 1988-89, Philip Lewis and I published the three volumes of "Lawyers in Society" (University of California Press). It contained national reports on 19 common law and civil law legal professions and theoretical and comparative chapters. Now, Hilary Sommerlad, Ole Hammerslev, Ulrike Schultz and I are engaged in revisiting those issues. We will publish two volumes (with Hart) in 2019-20 containing national reports on 45 legal professions and thematic chapters. This paper is my overview of the changes that have occurred in legal professions during the last 30 years and hypotheses about what we may expect in the next 30, based on those 45 national reports (which we are in the process of editing). It will address the following issues among others: neoliberal reforms, globalization, new public management, numbers and demography, legal education, access to justice, the role of professional associations in preserving the rule of law.
