From the Publisher
"Shdaimah has produced a subtle and complex picture of legal services lawyers and their clients. While fully attentive to questions of inequality and power, she charts the ways clients maintain autonomy and dignity as well as the ways their lawyers navigate systems of which they are highly critical. This is an enormously valuable contribution to scholarship on the legal profession and on progressive lawyering. Throughout it is both rigorous and deeply humane."
-—Austin Sarat,co-author of Cause Lawyers and Social Movements
“This volume is an excellent addition to the law and society literature addressing themes of cause lawyering and consciousness. Through over 50 interviews with urban service lawyers and clients, Shdaimah thoughtfully draws out the ways that the relationships between lawyers and clients address values of social justice, autonomy, collaboration, and understanding... Highly recommended.”-Choice,
“Negotiating Justice is a compelling glimpse into a world that most lawyers never visit.” -California Lawyer,
"Negotiating Justice is one of those exceedingly rare books that examine how lawyers and clients collaborate to produce legality. These stories will be an inspiration to law students aspiring to work in the public interest and an affirmation for the thousands of lawyers who do so daily."
-—Richard Abel,author of English Lawyers between Market and State: The Politics of Professionalism
“The book, as a whole, will be a terrific resource for students who would like to leaven their academic scholarship with insights gained from observations, surveys and interviews at a real legal clinic.”
