The Russian Legal Practitioner concentrates primarily on the advokat, who is the Russian lawyer with a right of audience in court, but also deals with the jurisconsult -- the lawyer who works for commercial law firms or in the civil service.
The book uses the Federal Law on the Advokatura as its central organizing point, with introductory chapters on the history of both branches of the profession. Under the new (2002) legislation foreigners can become either, but the book is orientated mostly towards the academic and professional markets, as these are the Russian jurists whom foreign investors and foreign law firms work with.
