Cause Lawyers and Social Movements / Edition 1
The volume attends to the ways in which lawyers help or hinder the movements with which they interact and how movements may both energize and constrain lawyers, encouraging them to engage in political practices that distinguish them from regular lawyers, while perhaps limiting their professional independence and autonomy. The book is divided into three sections. Michael McCann and Jeffrey Dudas provide an insightful account of how broad historical changes in the political environment, climate, and culture of the United States have changed the work of lawyers who seek to assist social movements.
Placing their analysis in the context of broader domestic and international trends, they explore the question of why public interest lawyers for progressive causes face a more hostile legal environment in the early years of the 21st century than in the s and 60s.
