Abstract: Using data from a recent national US survey of young attorneys, the After the JD Survey, this paper explores where public interest lawyers come from. This type of lawyering is broadly construed, to include not only lawyers in "public interest" jobs, but lawyers who serve the public in other capacities, including as public employees and as service providers for individuals. In particular, I focus on the role of law school prestige, educational debt, social class background and participation in clinic during law school as factors affecting lawyers' early career public interest work.

Abstract: This paper begins to explore the impact of trial lawyers’ associations on the professional identities of its members, their professional development, their understanding of practice norms, and their ethical decision-making. It does so by looking at the New York State Trial Lawyers’ Association (“NYSTLA”), and more specifically, the conversations that occur on its listserv. When these conversations are viewed in the context of the history and current operations of NYSTLA, it is possible to see how such listservs powerfully promote shared professional values and views within NYSTLA’s membership. The listserv extends the advice networks of trial lawyers far beyond the small number of attorneys with whom lawyers previously have been found to consult when questions arose in practice. These computer-mediated communications also result in increased opportunities for extended dialogue about a wider range of issues than previously occurred through more traditional methods of communication. Through the use of the listserv, trial lawyers are able to gain more accurate information to assist them in the representation of their clients and a more conscious and informed approach to the ethical issues they face in practice. At the same time, trial lawyers’ associations–and their listservs–contribute to the segmentation of the legal profession through rhetoric that encourages its members to view themselves as having different roles and holding different values than other members of the bar.

Abstract: This paper will examine the use of lawyers in dispute situations in multiple countries. It will draw on published and unpublished findings. The expectation is that the analysis will show that the decision to obtain assistance from a legal professional is more a function of the problem context than the resources of the disputant.

Abstract: Our paper will examine the characteristics of, and relationships among organizations and advocates that took positions on a set of controversial policy initiatives in the U.S. in 2004 and 2005. In our previous research on lawyers of the political right, we examined lawyers who served a set of organizations active on the “conservative” side of public policy controversies important to the various constituencies of the conservative coalition in the mid-1990s (Heinz et al. 2003). Our current project applies similar methods to a more recent set of policy disputes – all “legal affairs” issues as defined by the Congressional Quarterly Almanac in 2004 and 2005. We examine the full range of organizations and advocates active on those issues – not just those involved on the conservative side. We have identified all groups that appeared in news accounts about these issue-events in twenty-two newspapers and magazines, but we focusing our analysis primarily on the subset of 118 organizations that appeared in at least six news accounts. We will gather publicly available data about the organizations and their advocates, and we hope to interview a sample of the advocates. We will address the following questions: (1) What are the characteristics of the advocates for these organizations? Are there differences by causes served, types of organizations represented, or positions taken? (2) What strategies do the lawyers employ, and how do they understand their roles? (3) What does the advocacy network in this policy domain look like? What are the lines and sources of conflict and cooperation?
