Abstract / Description of output

This paper presents the findings of a study examining the ways in which institutions and professions are recursively interrelated, and act to mutually shape each other during times of institutional change. Our work explains how professional projects connect to broader institutional projects and change, as well as how a profession with different segments can maintain its integrity and institutionalised hierarchies during turbulent times. We also offer insight into the role of professions, particularly intra-professional dynamics, on attempts to address some of society’s most pressing issues, such as legal reform.
