Catalonia's Advocates

This chapter discusses the rise of the corporate profession. During the second half of the century, young lawyers embraced bourgeois culture but became increasingly corporatist, bonded through education, training, and the shared stresses of developing a private practice within a competitive and overcrowded environment. By the later decades of the century, many lawyers called for home rule for Catalonia, which, among its various attractions, promised to build and to center a Catalan bureaucracy in Barcelona; self-government would provide increased opportunities in the judiciary and administration for men with law degrees who faced difficult prospects breaking into private practice.
