Corporate Responsibility and the Business of Law
Little has been written about the business of law. And very little has been done to address the contribution of business lawyers to the corporate responsibilities of their clients or employers. There has been a tendency to focus, not on the practice of business law or the legal profession, but on the content of laws that are relevant to corporate responsibility. This report considers the implications of the corporate responsibility agenda for business lawyers and for the practice of business law. Its aim is to stimulate discussion in this neglected area, with a view to strengthening the contribution that business lawyers make to corporate responsibility.
