Summary

A theoretical framework for evaluating the twenty-five year experience of social reform groups and law reform lawyers is presented in this paper. Law reform organizations participate in activities that have common, underlying themes. For instance, in most cases the lawyers want more of society's goods for the clients. In order to evaluate whether law reform activities are successful or not, five variables of a theory that would explain success in reform group law and reform activities are identified. Among these are the following two: (1) the characteristics of social reform groups, and (2) the distribution of the benefits and costs of social reform group activity. A series of case studies are provided in order to illustrate a different type of social reform legal activity. They were selected from four principal areas of law reform activity: environmental litigation, consumer issues, civil rights, and welfare. The theory presented predicts where law reform activity on behalf of social reform groups is less likely to be successful. (Author/AM)
