In this article, we will explore what unites lawyers for the abused and lawyers for the accused. In Part II, we will discuss our connection as poverty lawyers concerned about the dignity of individual clients. In Part III, we will discuss our shared commitment to the adversarial system, legal process, and access to justice. In Part IV, we will address the challenge of teaching students who represent victims or perpetrators to be zealous and devoted advocates - but also to care about social and legal injustice on both sides.
