Professor Elizabeth Chambliss
Examines Advanced topics in lawyer regulation and considers how regulatory and market incentives affect the organization of legal services and the individual practice of law. Reading for the seminar will be determined in part by student research projects, but will consider topics such as the regulation of law firms; the boundaries between law and other occupations and professions; the dynamics of gender and race integration in the legal profession; and the changing structure of lawyers' careers. The main requirements are weekly comments on the readings and a substantial research paper. The seminar is required for all CPVP affiliates. Enrollment is limited to CPVP affiliates and others with the permission of the CPVP faculty.
