Studies in Law, Politics, and Society
This volume of Studies in Law, Politics and Society considers the crucial role played by intermediaries, such as companies and lawyers, in the legal system.
In this special issue, scholars from different disciplines find that, in some instances, legal intermediation can succeed in fulfilling the initial goals of regulation. However, in re-evaluating the role of the legal devices that organizations set up to comply with regulation, this volume also illustrates their diverse impact on legality and legal consciousness in organizations and in economic life.
With a broad range of case studies covering anti-discrimination law, financial rules, competition law, labour law and health and safety procedures, this European-focused volume makes an important contribution to the scholarship in this field.
