Attacks on liberalism differ in degree, and the content of criticisms varies from writer to writer. This chapter focuses upon principal criticisms of liberalism, and evaluates their relevance to, and usage by, public lawyers. It notes that the challenge to liberalism is in fact a series of distinctive, albeit related, attacks. These attacks are separately evaluated. It cites two main points as way of conclusion. First, the analysis reveals the complexity and contestability of the general critiques which have been leveled at liberalism. Second, the discussions reveals the weakness in the normative argumentation of interest-group pluralism.

Keywords:   legislative action, principle of justice, neutrality, liberalism, foundational neutrality, internal neutrality, public lawyers
