Cause Lawyering and the State in a Global Era

Austin Sarat and Stuart Scheingold


“Cause lawyering” denotes the practice of law by those committed to furthering through the upholding of a particular cause by legal means, the aims of the good society. This books explains how new configurations of state power, brought about by globalization and democratization processes, are creating new opportunities for altering the political and social status quo, and how cause lawyers in a wide variety of fields are developing new transnational networks for exploiting them.

Keywords: cause lawyering, democratization, globalization
