Legal Activism and Social Movements

23 Nov 2020 to 4 Dec 2020

This course aims to study the relationship between lawyers and social movements.  We will critically analyze literature related to the limits and possibilities that lawyers have when working in conjunction with social movements.  We will reflect on the role that lawyers play in the formation and support of social movements, with emphasis on work done in Puerto Rico, other Latin American countries, and in the United States of America.
