Frank H. Stephen's evaluation of public policy on the legal profession in UK and European jurisdictions explores how regulation and self-regulation have been liberalized over the past 30 years.
The book surveys where the most recent and radical liberalization involving the ownership of law firms by non-lawyers is likely to lead, and appraises the economic literature on the costs and benefits of regulating markets for professional services.
It challenges socio-legal views on professional legislation, and highlights the limitations of regulatory competition and the importance of dominant business models. The author reviews the empirical work underpinning these theories and policies, and evaluates the effectiveness of regulatory competition as a response to regulatory capture.
Lawyers, Markets and Regulation will be of interest to academics focusing on professional regulation in the fields of economics and law. Lawyers, legal policymakers, competition authorities and regulators will also find the book to be an enlightening read.
