about

How do lawyers think about and make the important decisions that constitute the day-to-day practice of law? This book explores that question through an extensive empirical study of lawyers practicing divorce law in New England. The authors emphasize the importance of "collegial control" inshaping lawyers' decisions and identify a variety of "communities of practice" that serve as key agents of that control. Offering a new understanding of the nature of lawyers' work in divorce law as well as a new perspective on legal professionalism, this book is required reading for scholars, students, and practitioners.

Editorial Reviews

"This topic is of great interest to not only those concerned with the practice of law, but also with broader social welfare interests in the management of the divorce process, and with a sociological interest in the development and pressures on the legal profession. The authors are in thefirst rank in their field, and write with clarity and authority. Their book is an important contribution to the field."--Mavis Maclean, Director, Oxford Center for Family Law Policy
