The American Legal Profession in Crisis: Resistance and Responses to Change by James E. Moliterno

Much has been written over the last decade regarding impending changes to the practice of law. This work explores how the legal profession has reacted poorly in the face of crisis, as illustrated by its reactions to the Watergate scandal, the rush of immigrants into the country in the early 20th Century, and to the threat of communism in the 1920s and 1950s. Professor Moliterno’s aim is to encourage the profession to look outward to society and culture to contextualize crises, and to grow and change along with society, rather than look inward and backward.
