Just Lawyers proposes a model for the regulation and organization of lawyers, guided by an ideal of access to justice. It is grounded in empirical analysis of why people complain about lawyers, the nature of existing legal institutions, and the ethical ideals of the profession. Parker weaves the normative theory of deliberative democracy with the empirical law and society tradition of research on the limits and possibilities of law. She shows that access to justice can only occur in the interaction between courtroom justice, informal everyday justice, and social movement politics. Lawyers' justice should educate people's justice to improve the justice quality of everyday relationships and transactions, while community concerns (including community access to justice concerns) should reshape lawyers' regulation, organization, and practices to improve substantive justice. Just Lawyers shows how legal proffesionalism can only be revitalized through the reform of access to justice beyond lawyers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a well-written book which combines a comprehensive vision of reform with immensely detailed empirical research, of interest to anyone concerned with methods of increasing access to justice. * Emily Henderson The Cambridge Law Journal July 2000 Vol.59 Pt2 *
Parker's valuable book proposes a model for the regulation and organization of lawyers guided by the fundamental democratic ideal of access to justice ... Her practical model for improving access to justice, incorporates lawyers' justice, but goes beyond it ... The argument by which she outs forward her model is long and intricate ... and brings in deliberative democratic theory and a considerable body of law and society research. * David Wood, Journal of Law and Society Vol 27 No 3 2000 *
