Summary

The concluding chapter draws together the core themes of the book in light of the broader literature on conflict, authoritarianism, transitional justice, cause lawyering, and the broader sociology of law and the legal profession. In particular, we revisit the themes of exceptionalism, agency/resistance, legitimacy, and memory to illuminate the tools, tactics, and strategies that lawyers resort to when professional boundaries, ethics, and norms are compromised. In all of the sites under review, engaging in legal work that challenged the prevailing political regime required moral and political commitment and often entailed significant personal risk and sacrifice.
