About the Book

In A Lawyer's Journey, Morris Dees dramatically chronicles the significant events that led him to the front lines of the civil rights struggle and his ongoing crusade against hate groups. This is the story of the courageous and often lonely journey of a skilled and controversial trial lawyer whose career has paralleled a nation's struggle to ensure freedom and equality of all its citizens. It is the story of a man who takes a stand, a man willing to risk his life to fight for minorities and the powerless, a man who has made a difference.

This book was originally published in 1991 as A Season for Justice. A Lawyer's Journey brings the Morris Dees story up to date. It chronicles Dees' most recent legal victories against the perpetrators of hate crimes, including the Aryan Nations in Idaho.

ABA Biography Series:

Lawyers Pursuing Justice

A Lawyer's Journey: The Morris Dees Story is the first in a new series of books published by the American Bar Association about lawyers who are visionaries, who inspire, or who are role models in short, who have worked to make a positive contribution to society and the legal system.


A Lawyer's Journey is the inspiring story of Morris Dees, a southern lawyer of humble beginnings, who has dedicated his life to the pursuit of justice and compassion for the powerless.

Jimmy Carter

A Lawyer's Journey is a gripping study of man's inhumanity to man and the struggle against such injustice by Morris Dees and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Rosa Parks

By any measure, Morris Dees has been one of the most dedicated and effective civil rights lawyers in U.S. history . . . I highly recommend this important book to everyone who cares about making America a better place.
