Autor/en: Alan Paterson
Autor/en: Alan Paterson
1. September 2011 - gebunden - 240 Seiten
Alan Paterson argues that, in a democracy, legal institutions are too important to be defined and controlled by lawyers alone.
1. Introduction: determining the public good; 2. Professionalism reassessed: what now for lawyers?; 3. Access to justice: whither legal aid?; 4. Judges and the public good: reflections on the last Law Lords; 5. Conclusion: where next?
Alan Paterson is Professor of Law and Director of the Centre for Professional Legal Studies at Strathclyde University. He is also the Chair of the International Legal Aid Group. As research adviser to the Scottish Legal Aid Board he has been responsible for the training and monitoring aspects of the peer review programme of quality assurance for legal aid lawyers in Scotland. He served as a member of the Council of the Law Society of Scotland from 2000 to 2008 and as a founding member of the Judicial Appointments Board for Scotland from 2002 to 2008. In 2008 he was appointed as an inaugural member of the Scottish Legal Complaints Commission and in the following year he was awarded the OBE for services to legal education and the law.
'This book addresses the role of lawyers in pursuing the public good. By revealing how judges of the House of Lords and Supreme Court approach their task, Alan Paterson has contributed greatly to the transparency of the judicial process in our top court, and thereby advanced the public good in his own right.' David Feldman, Rouse Ball Professor of English Law, University of Cambridge 'An excellent read, full of detail and fresh insights. What comes out of [Paterson's] writing is a commitment to the role and value of an independent profession. On legal aid [he] makes comparisons between England and Wales v. Scotland that certainly repay close reading.' Professor Dame Hazel Genn, University College London 'The mandatory read for the tail-end of the festive season ... Paterson has wrestled expertly with these issues for decades and here, with characteristic directness, he lays out the challenges and opportunities for tomorrow's lawyers.' Richard Susskind, The Times
