July 15, 2015, ABF news

ABF Faculty Fellow Ronit Dinovitzer and co-authors Hugh Gunz and Sally Gunz have received the 2014-2015 ‘Best Paper Award’ from the Journal of Professions and Organization for their article, “Unpacking Client Capture: Evidence from Corporate Law Firms.”

The prize-winning article appears in the March 2015 issue of the Journal of Professions and Organization and is based on a qualitative study of 106 Canadian corporate lawyers working in large law practices.  The article explores how a client may influence a professional, specifically when the client is a corporation.

Professor Dinovitzer’s research centers on the sociology of law, with a particular interest in the legal profession.  Dinovitzer is also co-principal investigator on the seminal ABF project, After the JD, a longitudinal study of lawyers’ careers.

The award was publicly presented at the Annual Conference on Professional Service Firms in Oxford, UK on July 6, 2015.
