This volume seeks to contribute to the debate on convergence and differences in the role of law and legal institutions throughout the world. Globalization and technology may allow, even require, convergence of lawyer's 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.
