A Need for a New Kind of Lawyering
According to Menkel-Meadow, in a modern world of multiple parties and multiple issues within most legal and social problems, the lawyer's role must expand to incorporate new roles as mediators, consensus builders, facilitators, meeting managers and problem solvers. Drawing on such wide ranging sources as political theory (democratic deliberation and participation), game theory, popular culture (John Nash and A Beautiful Mind), literature (Ian McEwen's Enduring Love) and examples from actual legal practice, she illustrated her point.
