Editorial Reviews

Review

“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 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



“Negotiating Justice is a compelling glimpse into a world that most lawyers never visit.” -California Lawyer

“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.”
-City Limits Weekly



". . . the power of the Negotiating Justice lies in its efforts to broaden the way in which we often think about the nature of progressive lawyering. . . the book has many interesting ideas and is a useful addition to the lawyering literature." 
-Lolita Buckner Inniss,Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare



"In Negotiating Justice: Progressive Lawyering, Low-Income Clients, and the Quest for Social Change, Corey S. Shdaimah breaks new ground by exploring not only the lawyers', but also the clients/ understanding of the work that these lawyers do within the legal system-a system preceived by bothe to be inequitable."
-Seher Goderya,Osgoode Hall Law Journal



Negotiating Justice is the kind of book that a mentor might loan to his or her mentee. Shdaimah’s work will be perfect to begin the discussion with the summer intern who asks, ‘What’s it really like to be a Legal Services attorney?’ Finally, someone took the time to record the answer.”

-Management Information Exchange Journal
