Lawyering for Good

noun_48290_ccI woke recently to a twitter feed filled with news from the International Legal Ethics Conference in New York. There were a few sessions that really interested me, and I captured the tweets in a series on Storify. (This is the second of four posts.)

There is an emerging scholarship of heroism science that I find intriguing – in particular its potential to explore the nature of lawyering. Interestingly, at the ILEC conference I noticed tweets about the lawyer as hero, notably in strategic human rights litigation. The tweets are brief of course, but the germs of an idea they contain is food for thought.
