The Program on the Legal Profession (PLP) seeks to make a substantial contribution to the modern practice of law by increasing understanding of the structures, norms and dynamics of the global legal profession. To this end, we:

– Conduct, sponsor and publish world-class empirical research on the profession;
– Innovate and implement new methods and content for teaching law students, practicing lawyers and related professionals about the profession; and
– Foster broader and deeper connections bridging between the global universe of legal practitioners and the academy.

Well integrated into the teaching curriculum and intellectual life of Harvard Law School, the Program is uniquely positioned to fulfill its mission of innovation and education. It is engaged with a variety of projects seeking, proposing and implementing solutions to the key issues facing lawyers in the modern legal services environment. This includes not only research and scholarship on the rapidly-changing legal profession, but also substantive proposals for change intended to improve the lives of lawyers.

If you have academic work related to the legal profession that you would like to feature in the Research Paper Series or would otherwise like to learn more about the Program’s research, please contact PLP’s Assistant Research Director Bryon Fong at bfong@law.harvard.edu.
