Summary
"This book is about the practice, possibilities, and pitfalls of public interest lawyering. It offers the first systematic treatment of public interest lawyering as a critical field of legal practice in the United States - and, increasingly, around the world. Its central aim is to understand the multiple facets of public interest lawyering as a professional practice and political object. Toward this end, it explores who public interest lawyers are, what causes they represent, and how they mobilize law in the pursuit of change. Synthesizing scholarly research and practical examples, the book reveals public interest lawyers pursuing a diverse range of political goals (from civil rights to property rights) across multiple practice sites (from nonprofit organizations to private law firms) with a variety of strategic approaches to solving problems (from individual litigation to multifaceted advocacy campaigns). In so doing, it illuminates the complex and contested world of contemporary public interest lawyering: showing how it has changed, what it has accomplished, and what challenges lie ahead"--Unedited summary from book cover
