Trends in legal advocacy: interviews with prosecutors and criminal defense lawyers across the globe

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewProfessional

Abstract

[Extract] This book is part of a series, ‘Interviews with Global Leaders in Policing, Courts, and Prisons’, but is the first to focus on legal advocates. While works from the policing series may appear to offer the greatest value to readers of this journal, there is much to recommend in the present volume for policing academics and practitioners. The qualitative data are drawn from interviews with both prosecution and defense lawyers from the USA and Canada; Australia and New Zealand; India, Sri Lanka and Nepal; Japan, China and Thailand; and South Africa, Belgium, and Bolivia. The chapters first summarize the relevant justice systems, then present personal interview material. There is roughly equal distribution between public and private sector lawyers, many are female, and others come from cultural and post-colonial backgrounds.
