Law and Society
Founding editor: W. Wesley Pue
The Law and Society Series explores law as a socially embedded phenomenon. It is premised on the understanding that the conventional division of law from society creates false dichotomies in thinking, scholarship, educational practice, and social life. Books in the series treat law and society as mutually constitutive and seek to bridge scholarship emerging from interdisciplinary engagement of law with disciplines such as politics, social theory, history, political economy, and gender studies.

This provocative, intelligent work looks at the evolving role of lawyers, articulating legal and ethical complexities, the growth of conflict resolution, and the increasing impact of alternative strategies on the lawyer-client relationship and the legal system.
