How is it possible that, with a glut of lawyers in America, so many of our country’s legal needs go unmet? In Liberated Lawyering, Theresa Amato, executive director of Citizen Works and founder of the Citizen Advocacy Center, shows how to realign supply with demand.

In a practical, no-nonsense guide to changing the way the legal profession creates lawyers in order to address the tens of millions with unmet legal needs, Amato explains why lawyers must reform themselves from serving corporate America to serving the “99 percent.” She shares a concise nuts-and-bolts self-help manual for lawyers and law students and describes how law schools and the profession can create more public interest jobs to assist those with no access to counsel.

A stirring and refreshing call for would-be and disenchanted lawyers to rethink their careers, Liberated Lawyering encourages and teaches entrepreneurial lawyers how to navigate the legal landscape that needs them and shows the profession how to redirect the talents of its members to solve the pressing problems and public interests of all of us.
