Clark D. Cunningham: Gerald P. Lopez’s “ ‘Rebellious Lawyering’ is perhaps the most balanced assessment of the moral dangers of public interest lawyering”

Cunningham_Clark-300x300

“[S]ome of the harshest critiques of the lawyer’s role now appearing in law reviews are written by former public interest lawyers who criticize their own work as ‘inevitably’ subordinating clients despite their best efforts to empower them.”

“Perhaps the most balanced assessment of the moral dangers of public interest lawyering is GERALD P. LOPEZ, REBELLIOUS LAWYERING: ONE CHICANO’S VISION OF PROGRESSIVE LAW PRACTICE (1992).”

Cited from Clark D. Cunningham, SOMETIMES YOU CAN’T MAKE A DENT, BUT THEY KNOW YOU’VE BEEN THERE: THE LAWYER AS GOD’S WITNESS, 106 Harv. L. Rev. 1962 (1993).
