Abstract:     
This article explores the tools that lawyers can employ to build and sustain social change. These tools add a new dimension to scholarly research in the field by focusing on the role of lawyers as leaders as they seek to influence processes of social change, transform systems, and empower others to lead. This Article draws upon principles of social justice lawyering, which acknowledge that lawyers have a fiduciary duty to create equal justice under the law. It combines these frameworks with leadership theoretical perspectives since there is a dearth of research available on the role of lawyers as leaders in the context of social change. Another framework that informs this new type of lawyering is public policy advocacy. The combination of social justice lawyering practices, leadership skills, and public policy advocacy is referenced in this Article as the three pillars of β€œnew social justice lawyering.”
