Short description:

This provocative, intelligent work looks at the evolving role of lawyers, articulating legal and ethical complexities, the growth of conflict resolution, and the increasing impact of alternative strategies on the lawyer-client relationship and the legal system.

Long description:

Today?s justice system and the legal profession have rendered the ?lawyer-warrior? notion outdated, shifting toward conflict resolution rather than protracted litigation. The new lawyer?s skills go beyond court battles to encompass negotiation, mediation, collaborative practice, and restorative justice. In The New Lawyer, Julie Macfarlane explores the evolving role of practitioners, articulating legal and ethical complexities in a variety of contexts. The result is a thought-provoking exploration of the increasing impact of alternative strategies on the lawyer-client relationship, as well as on the legal system itself.

The New Lawyer is the first book to thoroughly research and describe the massive changes in the legal profession and practice in the last three decades, and to make a serious attempt to predict what will happen in the decades to follow ? an outstanding effort. Readers will not be disappointed.
