One thing I have noticed about American lawyers is how specialised some of their practices are. I often wonder if the local legal market is big enough to sustain these sorts of specialisations. I came across a blog called CamLaw dedicated to a pretty specialised area of the law through a post on Lexblog which contains an interview with the attorney concerned, Michael H. Cohen. Cohen is an attorney specialising in complementary and alternative medicine law and policy. For those people who are unfamiliar with the term “complementary and alternative medicine”, it covers a range of healthcare options outside mainstream medicine such as yoga, reflexology and a range of energy practices. It fascinates me how specialised some of our American colleagues are.
