Extra Assimilation Required

(p.108) Chapter 5 Citizens into Lawyers

Julie Fette

Cornell University Press

This chapter examines how French lawyers used the issue of assimilation as part of their exclusionary sentiment against foreign lawyers. It considers how French lawyers masked their professional protectionism by insisting that naturalized lawyers constituted a danger for the French client and thus for the collective good. It also discusses the rallying and lobbying mechanism used by French lawyers as part of their strategy for promoting legislation to exclude recently naturalized citizens from their profession; the threat posed by Jewish refugees with legal training from abroad to the French law bars; and parliamentary response to lawyers' demand that naturalized citizens ought to be excluded from the legal profession. Finally, it analyzes the easing of restrictions against foreign lawyers under the Popular Front coalition.

Keywords:   lawyers, assimilation, exclusion, foreign lawyers, professional protectionism, naturalized lawyers, Jewish refugees, law bars, legal profession, Popular Front coalition
