25: 35 MAIN STREET: Rethinking Homeless America

Mulak explores his personal world Washington is broken and common sense solutions seem out of reach to the beltway politicians. Our historical American values have been stripped by legislation that doesn't make sense. And by so doing, both lawyers come up against the hostility of their fellow white citizens and expose their own families to great danger. To begin with, To Kill a Mockingbird has only one lawyer, the lawyer protagonist Atticus Finch, whose personal and professional probity so pervades the book that it leaves no call for discussion of any lesser vision of the profession.

And naturally, they come in varying hues of personal and professional integrity, which results in a richer palette of depiction. However, if these portrayals effectively cover the scale of categorisations previously discussed, the author quite clearly leans towards the darker side of the scale.

The Long Way Home

The protagonist, as befits his status as the hero of the novel, is a humanised lawyer who champions the right causes but bends the rules in order to do so. It also serves to underline the fact that the American lawyer FASP genre today projects an unequivocally jaundiced view of the profession. This is further supported by an exhaustive study conducted by Asimow tracing the evolution of lawyer representations in cinematic legal FASP films over the last half-century:. Table 2. This question is all the more intriguing as most lawyer FASP authors are, or were, practising lawyers themselves and should therefore, be aware of the dangerous ground they tread by fuelling negative perceptions of their own profession through their fictional representations, a paradox which Creo, underlines with respect to Grisham:.

I suspect that Grisham, who still tries [ sic ] cases e. Negative fictional portrayals are therefore carefully cultivated to sell books, as Asimow points out with regard to films:. If lawyers are already loathed by the likely consumers of a new film, then the odds of commercial success for a film about loathsome lawyers are better than the odds on films putting down French teachers, rabbis or grandmothers.

As a result, writers tend to write stories that feature negative lawyer portrayals, and producers and investors tend to select such stories from the vast array of choices available to them. Is it a mirror of perceptions or a projector of representations that moulds those perceptions? Haddad According to this line of thinking, it is therefore reality that moulds fictional representations. In which case, and in view of the increasingly venomous portrayal of fictional lawyers, we must logically subscribe to the hypothesis that real life lawyers in America today are, on the whole, as they appear in current lawyer FASP novels i.

Such a line of reasoning is patently reductionist and borders on untenable over-simplification and stereotypical over-generalisation which deny all the decent and dedicated lawyers who never make the headlines for precisely those reasons. The legal profession is one that demands integrity, and most lawyers take that very seriously. Several examples serve to defeat this assumption. Is this work of people who can be equated with the devil? In the context of our discussion, according to cultivation effect theorists it is fiction that moulds reader perceptions and consequently, the negative image which clings to American lawyers is, to a large extent, generated by lawyer FASP, whether best-seller or blockbuster.

In the context of FASP novels, these perceptions weaken and distort such essential text analysis and interpretation tools as source discount and critical distance.

Public perceptions and fictional representations are caught up in what appears to be a self-perpetrating cycle in that they both feed off and fuel each other, thus generating an ever widening and unstoppable vicious circle around the antonymic processes of simultaneously both satisfying and whetting appetites.

This optimistic note comes from the members of the cinema industry, in other words those professionals who serve as intermediaries between the author, the book and the vast cinema-going public. By way of conclusion therefore, we would like briefly to touch upon the didactic wisdom of exposing learners to teaching supports likely to propagate and reinforce existing negative impressions regarding the profession.

This is particularly true in the case of young impressionable learners whose knowledge of the domain subject is often based on vague and even erroneous fragments of knowledge acquired randomly Isani and who work in an autonomous self-learning environment. Isani in press. Asimow, Michael.
