Professor Eduardo R.C. Capulong (On Sabbatical AY 2014-2015)
In this course, we will survey cause lawyers in historical context, focusing on the mid-20th century onwards. Drawing on law and society, critical and clinical scholarship, we will consider various practices and examine their features. What are their aims? The circumstances they work under? Their methods? Examining various ways cause lawyers do their work, we will draw practical lessons. This course has a practicum component that will allow each student to participate in a range of cause lawyering initiatives.
