International Journal of the Legal Profession is an academic journal addressing the organization, structure, management and infrastructure of the legal professions of the common law and civil law world. The journal encompasses studies of the work, work practices, skills and ethics of the legal profession as well as the internal management of law firms and chambers. It also considers the methods and extent of provision of legal services. A range of socio-legal information is included involving inter-disciplinary interest from academic and professional lawyers, economists, philosophers, psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists and business academics interested in the world of law and lawyers. Major changes are occurring in the legal professions of America, Europe and Australasia. The profession has become much more open for study and accountability to the public and to government. Academic interest has grown over recent years and study of the legal profession is now well respected and represented within law departments. Scholars have begun to view law as an interesting area of study and lawyers, without any internal methodology for assessing and measuring their work or value, have welcomed the outside interest. International Journal of the Legal Profession considers these issues at an academic level, but also provides strategic solutions emanating from its literature. It is therefore of interest to theorists within law firms as well as academia.
