Contemporary legal practice faces the paradox of both fragmentation and consolidation through the effects of globalisation of legal services, of clients, and arguably of the law itself. Increasingly, thanks to rapid developments in technology, non-lawyers also deliver legal services.

At the convergence of these influences, lawyers increasingly work outside their 'home' jurisdiction: travelling and working internationally, managing matters for international clients, or dealing with laws that bear an international context. They also face competition from law start-ups that are unconstrained by jurisdiction, and consequently lawyers' work includes interdisciplinary technology-related contexts.

This innovative text is designed to prepare law students and to enhance practitioners' skill-sets, enabling both to deal successfully with the wide range of issues encountered in the delivery of legal services in the contemporary global environment.

It offers a structured approach to develop the intellectual and practical skills of students and junior lawyers necessary to transition from a domestic legal practitioner to a lawyer equipped to practise in diverse global contexts. It addresses a range of challenges, providing a practical 'toolkit' that promotes the capabilities of 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.

  • Designed for students and junior lawyers
  • Offers opportunities to develop practice-ready knowledge and skills
  • Engaging, informative discussion
  • Relatable to student/graduate lawyer experience
  • A progressive, practical resource
