The Russian Legal Practitioner focuses primarily on the advokat, the Russian lawyer with a right of audience in court. Additionally, the book examines the jurisconsult, the lawyer who works for commercial law firms or in the civil service. The book uses the Federal Law on the Advokatura as its central organizing point, with introductory chapters on the history of both branches. The book will be of interest to academics and professionals, since the advokat and the jurisconsult are the Russian jurists with whom foreign investors and foreign law firms will be working.
