    Abstract

    Unleashing the Force of Law answers three main questions about the protection of these basic freedoms: when do lawyers mobilize for the protection of basic freedoms? In what sort of mobilization do they engage? And how do the strategies they adopt affect their outcomes? Spanning over the last five decades, the book focuses on the analysis of the work lawyers did for basic freedoms in the 1980s, at the time of peak of the Conflict in Northern Ireland, and Puerto Rican separatist movement in the United States, as well as modern day legal mobilization for basic freedoms post 9/11.
