When and why do legal professions seek to influence law

In this presentation Professor Levin looks at the circumstances under which legal professions throughout the world, through mandatory and voluntary lawyer associations, attempt to influence the law by either advocating for legal change or opposing it. They do so, for example, in order to benefit the profession as an occupation; to benefit their clients; to bolster (or improve) the legitimacy of the courts; and to advance human rights and other issues affecting civil society.
