Published in 1999, this volume contributes to the debate on convergence and differences in the role of law and legal institutions throughout the world. Globalization and technology may allow convergence of lawyers training, practices and values. However, local conditions may create resistances and barriers which must be acknowledged and studied. The book focuses on social values in legal education and practice in four regions: East Asia, South Asia, South-East Asia and Latin America.


’A fascinating account of the transnational reinvention of legal activism. In the aftermath of the Chicago boys� and the triumph of neo-liberal economics, we are finally witnessing innovative legal responses that, as this book systematically shows, amounts to a reinvention of law and legal practices in numerous societies around the globe.’ Bryant Garth, American Bar Foundation, USA ’This is truly excellent…All essays are clearly expressed, challenging and thoroughly researched…A superb outcome would be to see some of these essays on student reading lists…’ The Law Teacher
