Law and lawyers in the time of globalization

I wrote a reply to a short piece written by Alberto Musy, an Italian law professor, on the Anglo-American lawyers dominate the market for legal services and the production of transnational rules.

I argue that the causes of the Anglo-American oligopoly ought not to be identified with the success of Anglo-American law firms but in the ways in which globalization has taken place and in fact that the North-American economic and political (and not the European) model has shaped globalization.

My piece is available both in Italian and in English.
