In September 2018, we celebrated the launch of Michael Tigar’s digital archive, which features hundreds of documents that offer a glimpse into his multifaceted life as an activist, lawyer, and academic. Now, in April 2021, we come together to celebrate the publication of Tigar’s latest memoir, Sensing Injustice: A Lawyer’s Life in the Battle for Change.

From Monthly Review Press: “Sensing Injustice is a vibrant literary and legal feat. In it, Tigar weaves powerful legal analysis and wry observation through the story of his remarkable life. The result is a compelling narrative that blends law, history, and progressive politics. This is essential reading for lawyers, for law students, for anyone who aspires to bend the law toward change.”
