Lawyers, Law, and Social Change
by Steve Bachmann
UP Bookstore


Lawyers, Law and Social Change consists of seven essays exploring the impact of lawyers and law on social change. The title essay and two others have been widely read in major legal publications and assigned in law school classes; four new essays, never before published, are also included in this thought provoking book.

Written over the course of his 25 years as General Counsel to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), Bachmannís essays discuss attacks on the legal profession; living the life of the activist lawyer; the ability (or lack thereof) of law and lawyers to effect lasting social change; the efficacy of poverty law; the religious perspective and social change concerns; and recent developments in law and social change.


Since graduating from Harvard Law School in 1976, Steve Bachmann has represented many organizations working for social change, including ACORN, Local 100, SEIU, AFL-CIO, community based radio stations, fair housing organizations, and anti-death penalty groups. His legal practice has included corporate and tax work, and litigating civil rights actions in federal and state courts across the nation. Bachmann has written articles for a number of legal journals over the years, and published three other books: The U.S. Constitution for Beginners (Writers & Readers Press, 1987), illustrated by Pulitzer prize winner Joel Pett; Preach Liberty (Four Walls Eight Windows, 1990); and Nonprofit Litigation (John Wiley & Sons, 1992).
