Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungLawyers and the legal profession have become scapegoats for many of the problems of our age. In "The Lawyer Myth: A Defense of the American Legal Profession," Rennard Strickland and Frank T. Read look behind current antilawyer media images to explore the historical role of lawyers as a balancing force in times of social, economic, and political change. One source of this disjunction of perception and reality, they find, is that American society has lost touch with the need for the lawyer's skill and has come to blame unrelated social problems on the legal profession. This highly personal and impassioned book is their defense of lawyers and the rule of law in the United States.
