Item description for Global Law in Practice by Ross Harper...
The rule of law is essential to peace, development and the realisation of human rights. The practice of law is a privilege, but a privilege that carries with it a heavy responsibility to ensure respect for the law. In an interdependent world, lawyers must communicate and interact amongst themselves and with others, both at the national and international level. The International Bar Association, as a professional body with a long and distinguished record of achievement, plays an important role in this respect. This volume of essays, written by eminent practitioners and jurists, 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.
