545 Stepping Up to the Challenge of Access to Justice

In her 2008 bestselling book, The New Lawyer: How Settlement is Transforming the Practice of Law (UBC Press), Julie Macfarlane described what her research (and that of others) told us about how the work of lawyers is fundamentally changed by an increasing focus on settlement processes, both inside the courts and in private practice.  In her fully revised and updated 2014 second edition (The New Lawyer: How Clients are Transforming the Practice of Law) Julie integrates new data and knowledge about the self-represented litigant phenomenon which is challenging lawyers to develop new and more affordable models of service delivery, and explores the systemic impact of the Internet which has affected client service expectations of in every area of legal practice.While recognizing the many challenges of change, Macfarlane describes a New Lawyer who embraces the "new client", who is a conflict resolution advocate, and who offers critical, responsive, value-added legal services.
