Globalisation processes are now increasingly visible also in the provision of legal services in Poland. They significantly influence the lives and professional practice of Polish advocates and legal advisers. The realities of the lawyers’ professional practice are changing considerably year by year. Consequently, individual lawyers, as well as the entire professional group, are evolving.
Developments in the number of Polish advocates and legal advisers, their distribution, gender parity, age and professional experience, specialisation and business legal form, professional qualifications and language skills are largely a result of globalisation and internationalisation of legal services. These processes are occurring quite rapidly and are already evident. Modern lawyers are already beginning to differ from the legal practitioners of 20-30 years ago.
The socio-legal study is based on the statistical data analysis of Polish and European public, academic and professional registers, as well as on own empirical research performed among Polish advocates and legal advisers. The research was based on a representative survey questionnaire method and the method of qualitative interviews.
The study results demonstrate a profound transformation of the legal professions, the existence of new development trends and the development of new types of legal services and working methods of Polish advocates and legal advisers.
