The New New World: Lawyers on the Vanguard of Change


'“It is a truism to say that in every age the history of law has been shaped by the general characteristics of the civilization of which it is a part. The lawyers' attitude towards their profession and their preparation for that profession have often been determined by intellectual interests that far transcend their immediate horizons. Sometimes, however, the process has been reversed and the lawyers have been found in the role of an avant-garde creating a significantly new direction in the intellectual life and interests of the community”
