Symposium on the Deregulation of the Legal Market

Absolutely fascinating reading from Larry Ribstein's "Unlocking the Law: Deregulating the Legal Profession" online symposium from his Truth on the Market blog. An excerpt:
"Licensing and regulation of lawyers, long questioned by scholars, is emerging as an important public issue.  Legal costs are rising for individuals and firms with increases in litigation and regulation.  These costs tax business growth and entrepreneurship and impede ordinary Americans’ access to the civil justice system.  Meanwhile, the development of new business structures and technologies and significant regulatory moves toward opening up competition for legal services in the UK and elsewhere are forcing policymakers to address lawyer licensing and regulation."
