Making Regulation Work

Preview

The detailed case studies presented in this book illustrate the need to understand what these lawyers did and why they did it. Only then can we look for commonalities across cases, develop hypotheses for quantitative testing, and suggest remedies that transcend unique circumstances. In order to expand the number of instances and see whether jurisdiction matters, this chapter refers to the seven New York lawyers described in an earlier book. It explores the similarities and differences among the behaviors of these lawyers and others who appear in the chapter introductions.
