The Global Lawyer

Kate Galloway, Melissa Castan, John Flood

Research output: Book/ReportBookOtherpeer-review


This innovative work represents a research-based approach to identifying legal practitioners’ skill-sets necessary to deal successfully with the wide range of issues encountered in the delivery of legal services in the contemporary global environment.

The research foundation of this work is presented within a clear structure designed to develop the intellectual and practical skills of law graduates and early career lawyers in particular, that are necessary to transition from a domestic legal practitioner to a lawyer equipped to practise in diverse global contexts. It challenges the reader through the use of targeted case studies, identifying the requisite knowledge, skills and attributes to promote ethical global citizenship and a professional, global outlook. Topics covered include cultural competence, diverse digital contexts of legal practice, notions of professionalism and ethics in the global context, and more.
