Galvanizing Young Lawyers in the Twenty-first Century

“A lawyer’s either a social engineer or . . . a parasite on society. A social engineer [is] a highly skilled, perceptive, sensitive lawyer who [understands] the Constitution of the United States and [knows] how to explore its uses in solving problems of local communities and in bettering conditions of the underprivileged citizens.” These are the words of Charles Hamilton Houston, one of America’s most important civil rights attorneys and a mentor to Thurgood Marshall.
