Abstract

History shows us that social change comes about when directly impacted people get together and demand justice in social movements. The world needs more lawyers who will partner with and learn alongside the people struggling for justice. That is what movement lawyering is. This is an introduction to Movement Lawyering for those who are just learning about it. And a refresher for those familiar with the idea who want more information.

Keywords: Movement, movement lawyer, social change, justice, law
