This chapter is concerned with the ways lawyers either do or do not make their voices heard in processes of political, social, and legal transformation. It examines several key moments in legal and political history to determine how the potential of particular groups of lawyers to serve as the collective conscience of legal professional may be developed and enhanced. The chapter explains the notion of critical juncture and evaluates that sociology of the legal profession.

Keywords:   lawyers, political transformation, social transformation, legal transformation, collective conscience, critical juncture, legal profession
