Abstract:

From the back cover: The market for legal services is growing rapidly. The number of lawyers and notaries approximately doubled between 1971 and 1981; and membership in Canadian law societies rose by 25 percent between 1981 and 1986. What is the source of this growth? Demand by households? Business? What is the regional distribution of sales? And how are sales divided between law firms? Are there any statistics on lawyer unemployment? On the division of labour within the law firm? Answers to these and other questions are found in this study of the legal services market which concludes with a review of selected policy issues, including the multidisciplinary firm, professional corporations and whether restrictions ought to be imposed on the number of practising lawyers.
