Lookup NU author(s): Dr Jacqueline Kinghan


Full text is not currently available for this publication.


Lawyers, Networks and Progressive Social Change explores how, and why, lawyers pursue social change. The progressive lawyering movement in the UK has been subject to limited analysis to date, yet the stories of those lawyers working within it allow us to develop a richer understanding of social justice legal practice across and public and private spaces; and the links between personal, professional and cultural identity. Underpinned by theories of cause lawyering and legal mobilisation, Lawyers, Networks and Progressive Social Change argues that it is vital to understand the positions that progressive lawyers collectively take in order to frame the connections they make between their personal and professional lives, the tools they use to achieve social change, as well as ethical tensions presented by their work.
