Calgary and Everything after: A Postmodern Re-Vision of Lawyering
AbstractHutchinson encourages a re-thinking of the ethics of lawyering. He explores the need to transform through legal theory what is done in legal practice and what is justified to be left undone. This exploration begins with a discussion of the traditional image of the ethical lawyer. He then exposes this image to a series of critiques and introduces alternate models of legal practice. A postmodern vision of lawyering is introduced which reframes and reworks these traditional ways of thinking. By the adoption of such a postmodern re- vision of lawyering, change in legal practice may come about through the legal profession, rather than in spite of it.
