I have put up new paper on SSRN titled: "Professions and Professional Service Firms in a GlobalContext: Reframing Narratives".
The abstract reads:
Professions are changing rapidly and profoundly as new technologies, organisational forms, and regulations are introduced into the professional world. As a result, professions are creating new narratives to stake their legitimate claims in the world and justify their positions. This paper examines some of these narratives in the contexts of organisation, globalisation and technology among others. The legal profession is used as a case study of change.
