The Locke Institute is an independent, non-partisan educational and research organization, seeking to engender a greater understanding of the concept of natural rights, its implications for constitutional democracy and for economic organization in modern society. The aim of this book is to examine the role of powerful members of the organized Bar in the US, who exploit the rational ignorance both of their own colleagues and the wider electorate to pursue their own political agendas through the institution of the American Bar Association. The author's intention is to destabilize the equilibrium established by the legal services bureaucracy and expose its behaviour and the consequences of the principal actors to the lens of public choice, by narrowing the range of that rational ignorance on which the special interests ultimately depend for political influence, and by identifying incentives for a regrouping of forces in the market place for legal services into constellations more favourable to the deserving poor.
