Published in 1997, an edited collection of essays by a group of international public interest scholars and activists that examines the role and function of the law school in developing, transmitting and understanding the use of law to bring about social change to the advantage of subordinated people. The book traces this influence from the early days of the law school and its induction of legal principles and client responsibilities, through training for practices in a variety of settings, including teaching, social action research, client empowerment programs, to the outer limits of law school in community legal education and awareness. An important and pioneering series of international case studies.


’…a great contribution to jurisprudence.’ Adrul Haider Chowdhury, former Chief Justice of Bangladesh ’…an outstanding work. Its great strength is that it brings together reports of an eclectic group of experiments that, each in its own way, tries to get outside the box� that defines contemporary legal education…Surely, these stories from the trenches� will be an inspiration for faculty and students committed to broadening the mission of legal education and of law more generally.’ Professor Howard S. Erlanger, University of Wisconsin Law School, USA ’This is an inspiring book…The idealism and creativity of the authors jumps off the page.’ Duncan Kennedy, Carter Professor of General Jurisprudence, Harvard Law School, USA
