RebLaw 2017 Conference at Yale Law School – Reader

Introduction from Professor Gerald P. López:

The written work originating, enriching, and commenting upon Rebellious Lawyering is now large – including professional, journalistic, social media, and scholarly contributions.  What I’ve tried to do in developing these readings is to identify some of the vital publications a newcomer might find helpful in understanding this vision of problem solving, of which lawyering is but one important practice.  But my definition of what “a newcomer might find helpful” is likely idiosyncratic.  That’s particularly true because I have included many publications by others that I reread time and again, not just with students and lawyers I train, but entirely on my own.  Each time I return I find myself discovering and rediscovering important themes and insights.  What I hope newcomers find illuminating certainly reflects what an old-hand still keenly studies.

The Table of Contents is in chronological order, and absorbing the publications in this way helps to understand how the story has unfolded.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me (lopez@law.ucla.edu).  Congratulations on the incredible work you and all those before you have done in organizing over the years the Yale Rebellious Lawyering Conference. I hope to see you there again very soon.

Gerald P. López
