Cause lawyering : political commitments and professional responsibilities by Austin Sarat( )

17 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 2,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why do some lawyers devote themselves to a given social movement or political cause? How are such commitments justified, given the ideals of disinterested professional service to which lawyers are (in theory, at least) supposed to adhere? What can we learn from such lawyers about the relationship between law and politics? Cause Lawyering is a varied and provocative collection of responses to these questions, featuring the work of several distinguished legal scholars. These essays explore the relationship between cause lawyering and the organized legal professions of many different countries: Brazil, England, Indonesia, Israel, South Africa, and the U.S., among others. They describe the utility of law as a resource in political struggles and, conversely, highlight the constraints under which lawyers operate when they turn to politics. Some provide broad theoretical overviews, others present rich case studies, and all will appeal to students and professionals interested in law and society."--BOOK JACKET
The politics of rights : lawyers, public policy, and political change by Stuart A Scheingold( Book )

23 editions published between 1974 and 2004 in English and held by 1,875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stuart A. Scheingold's landmark work introduced a new understanding of the contribution of rights to progressive social movements, and thirty years later it still stands as a pioneering and provocative work, bridging political science and sociolegal studies. In the preface to this new edition, the author provides a cogent analysis of the burgeoning scholarship that has been built on the foundations laid in his original volume. A new foreword from Malcolm Feeley of Berkeley's Boalt Hall School of Law traces the intellectual roots of The Politics of Rights to the classic texts of social theory and sociolegal studies. "Scheingold presents a clear, thoughtful discussion of the ways in which rights can both empower and constrain those seeking change in American society. While much of the writing on rights is abstract and obscure, The Politics of Rights stands out as an accessible and engaging discussion."--Gerald N. Rosenberg, University of Chicago "This book has already exerted an enormous influence on two generations of scholars. It has had an enormous influence on political scientists, sociologists, and anthropologists, as well as historians and legal scholars. With this new edition, this influence is likely to continue for still more generations. The Politics of Rights has, I believe, become an American classic."--Malcolm Feeley, Boalt Hall School of Law, University of California, Berkeley, from the foreword Stuart A. Scheingold is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Washington

The worlds cause lawyers make : structure and agency in legal practice( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of cause lawyering has grown dramatically and is now an important field of research in socio-legal studies and in research on the legal profession. The Worlds Cause Lawyers Make: Structure and Agency in Legal Practice adds to that growing body of research by examining the connections between lawyers and causes, the settings in which cause lawyers practice, and the ways they marshal social capital and make strategic decisions. The book describes the constraints to cause lawyering and the particulars that shape what cause lawyers do and what cause lawyering can be, while also focusing on the dynamic interactions of cause lawyers and the legal, professional, and political contexts in which they operate. It presents a constructivist view of cause lawyering, analyzing what cause lawyers do in their day-to-day work, how they do it, and what difference their work makes. Taken together, the essays collected in this volume show how cause lawyers construct their legal and professional contexts and also how those contexts constrain their professional lives.--Provided by publisher
