Book Review:Something to believe in

December 3rd, 2005 Comments off

Something to believe in; politics, professionalism, and
cause lawyering.
Scheingold, Stuart A. and Austin Sarat.

 Scheingold (political science emeritus, U. of Washington) and Sarat
(jurisprudence and political science, Amherst College) describe the differences

between conventional lawyers who view their work as an emotionless
technical activity and “cause lawyers,” who may specialize in
environmental or human rights work but in any case have refused to set
their convictions aside. The authors focus on the lawyers with a cause
and their relationships with each other, vvith conventional lawyers, with
the legal system, and with politics, finding some of the most interesting
questions in the concept of being a cause lawyer in a liberal democracy.
