The rule of law is essential to peace, and to the development and realisation of human rights. The practice of law is a privilege, but one that carries the heavy responsibility of ensuring respect for the law. In an interdependent world, lawyers must communicate and interact amongst themselves and with others, both at the national and international levels. The International Bar Association, as a professional body with a long and distinguished record of achievement, plays an important role in this respect. Written by eminent practitioners and jurists, this volume of essays marks the occasion of the Association's 50th anniversary. It takes as its theme the concept of the globalisation of the law, offering an in-depth and forward-looking analysis of a wide range of topics, among them: - the role of the lawyer in the information society, - the future of multidisciplinary practices, - the future of the foreign legal practitioner, - the role of law in economic development and the fight against corruption, and - the role of the lawyer in the UN. The preeminence of the International Bar Association in the practice, the milestone occasion marked by this work, the expertise of the authors, and the significance of the theme addressed all make "Global Law in Practice" a work of lasting import.
