Susan Strauss Feb 21, 2016 Report Abuse
Dr. Tyner’s passion for lawyers combating oppression and hierarchy while striving for social justice is a well thought out and articulated foundation for her exemplary book. She is strong in weaving leadership theory with thought provoking quotes by current and historical leaders—while encouraging “rebellious lawyering” to eliminate injustice. Each chapter’s reflective questions engage the reader to be more than a passive audience of her advocacy for social change and policy reform. Her book provides resources, encourages community activism, and is a catalyst for not only lawyers, but anyone who reads her powerful vision.
MONICA HABIA Nov 4, 2015 Report Abuse
The Lawyer as Leader: How to Plant People and Grow Justice is not only a book for lawyers but also a book for emerging young leaders and change agents. This book provides guidelines and practical ways to bring about social change. As a mentee of Dr. Tyner, her book challenges me to become a better leader and help other young people discover their leadership qualities. (Monica Yaa Habia, Public Policy and Leadership student at the University of St. Thomas and Program Assistant at African Immigrant Services, Minnesota)
Melanie E Bates Feb 24, 2015 Report Abuse
In this brilliant work, Dr. Artika Tyner examines several concepts of leadership to determine how lawyers may best use their unique talents and knowledge to help the underserved population. Dr. Tyner states that a lawyer engaging in social justice lawyering critiques the laws by seeking out those whose voices are not traditionally heard. This is a must-read for any law student, lawyer, or member of the judiciary interested in uplifting others to achieve a common goal.

This book offers a concrete road map for developing the next generation of social justice conscious leaders, including a list of leadership characteristics to develop in law students and young lawyers. Her profiles are excellent at portraying the model traits and ways to success in this arena. This is a must read for those interested in social justice lawyering.
