Flood, John (2007) Partnership and professionalism in global law firms: resurgent professionalism? In: Redirections in the study of expert labour. Palgrave Macmillan, Basingstoke, UK, pp. 52-74. ISBN 9781403998705Full text not available from this repository.
The industrialization of legal practice is leading to an increased tension between professionalism and business as varieties of the prevailing ethos in large law firms. Using historical and biographical data of law firms this tension is examined with the result that professionalism is, on the legal profession's own terms, dying out. Only in rare niche, smaller firms can residues of professionalism be located.
