ATTACKS ON LAWYERS: Human Rights Defenders Under Siege

This collection is a peek into the silent struggle of lawyers who have chosen the road less travelled. These are the men and women of law who have dedicated their lives to serve the ordinary people. Reading through these personal narratives elucidates how a peoples’ lawyer becomes and lives – their choices, made despite knowing the very real risks they will encounter, and their unwavering commitment to justice in the face of threats and death. These are the lawyers who serve the oppressed, the exploited, the poor, the dissenters to an establishment that has abdicated its duty to govern in the interest of the people.
