In this paper, I shall first briefly examine some of the most significant changes affecting legal practice, especially civil litigation, and ask what adjustments in the professional identity and role of the lawyer these imply or perhaps even require from lawyers. I shall also consider what evidence we have for the evolution of the "new lawyer." I shall then approach these questions from a practice-based perspective, looking specifically at client advocacy, legal negotiation, and the lawyer-client relationship.
