Case study: lawyers

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses studies on legal practice and the contribution of legal practice to the law on free movement. Lawyers provide the subject matter for a case study on the free movement provisions because of the significant differences in the structure and organization of national law and national legal orders. Also, lawyers make a good case study since the practice of law is heavily regulated; this means that the controlling and constraining influence of Community law might be more clearly seen here than in some other areas of professional activity.

Keywords: legal practice; free movement; lawyers; Community law
