SSRN Research Paper Series

The Program on the Legal Profession has launched a Social Science Research Network (SSRN) Research Paper Series to deepen knowledge about the evolution and dynamics of the global legal profession. With the help of academics from around the world, we hope to build the Research Paper Series into the central depository for high-quality, innovative work on the global legal profession. We welcome submissions from academic researchers doing work on the profession, broadly conceived, and those interested in having their papers part of the Research Paper Series can email Bryon Fong. SSRN users can subscribe to the series here.
