CHAMA, Mauricio. The defense of political prisoners in the early '70s: professional practice, law and politics. Cuad. antropol. soc. [online]. 2010, n.32, pp. 195-217. ISSN 1850-275X.
The work addresses the relationship between law and politics in the early 70s. More precisely aims to identify and reconstruct the main features that assumes the defense of political prisoners in this period. Rather than a specific work, means that the defense of political prisoners in those years represented a new configuration that was able to articulate a new association of legal professionals, renewed defense strategies, a vast and systematic effort of denunciation, a fluid network of lawyers national and a peculiar rhetoric aimed at the formation of a "new law". Conceived in these terms, we believe that the defense of political prisoners in the early '70s redefined the conventional modes of understanding the relationship between professional practice, law and politics, encouraging the emergence of a new model of counsel in the public sphere.
