Peter Lederer and I have put our first joint paper on SSRN. The title is "Becoming a Global Lawyer" and it is based on interviews I have conducted with Peter. The paper's abstract says
Using oral history we track the rise of legal globalization through the experience of an early partner in Baker & McKenzie, the world's largest and most global law firm. The paper considers two case studies in counseling and advising illustrating the role of the lawyer and clients in the construction of complex deals. In addition, we examine the role of education, career, and cosmopolitanism.This will be the first of a series of papers. We welcome any comments and feedback.
Why this should be so, I don't know. But if you google "global lawyer", you get this....
