This article is dedicated to Andrew Abbott for all the thought-provoking discussions on the professions during 2003–2004. I would like to thank Ruoying Chen, Robert Dingwall, Terence C. Halliday, Ryon Lancaster, Joanne Martin, Ethan Michelson, Robert L. Nelson, Susan P. Shapiro, Xiaomeng Zhang, and Dingxin Zhao for their helpful comments on earlier drafts. Herbert M. Kritzer, editor of the Law & Society Review, and four anonymous reviewers provided valuable suggestions during the revisions, which significantly improved the quality of the article. The fieldwork in Beijing benefited from the enormously helpful support from my former colleagues at Peking University School of Law and all the other lawyers I interviewed and worked with in 2002 and 2004, whose identities have to be kept confidential. Financial support for my fieldwork was provided by the research grant from Urban China Research Network. Needless to say, I am solely responsible for all the errors and problems in the article.
