A Nation Under Lawyers: How the Crisis in the Legal Profession is Transforming American Society
Mary Ann Glendon's A Nation Under Lawyers is a guided tour through the maze of the late-twentieth-century legal world, in which even lawyers themselves can lose their bearings. Glendon depicts the legal profession as a system in turbulence, where a variety of beliefs and ideals are vying for dominance. Dramatizing issues and events through stories of lawyers and laypersons caught up in the currents of change, she shows that what is at stake is the future not only of the legal profession but of American democracy.
