(p.244) Chapter 9 The Global Language of Human Rights
Cause Lawyering and the State in a Global Era

Yoav Dotan

Oxford University Press

The conventional distinction, between the dispassionate “hired gun” lawyer and the committed cause lawyer, appears not to work in the case of Israel, where there have been cases of lawyers crossing the divide between pro‐Palestinian human rights work and pro‐Israeli government work. This chapter assesses the implications for cause lawyering of such changes of allegiance, and of the extent to which it reflects the impact of globalization on the practice of human rights law.
