INJUSTICE ON APPEAL: The United States Courts of Appeals in Crisis
KF8750 .R53 2013
By Richman, William M.


In Injustice on Appeal: The United States Courts of Appeals in Crisis, William M. Richman and William L. Reynolds chronicle the transformation of the United States Circuit Courts; consider the merits and dangers of continued truncating procedures; catalogue and respond to the array of specious arguments against increasing the size of the judiciary; and consider several ways of reorganizing the circuit courts so that they can dispense traditional high quality appellate justice even as their caseloads and the number of appellate judgeships increase. The work serves as an analytical capstone to the authors' thirty years of research on the issue and will constitute a powerful piece of advocacy for a more responsible and egalitarian approach to caseload glut facing the circuit courts.


CONSCIENCE AND CONVICTION: The Case for Civil Disobedience
JC328.3 .B76 2012
By Brownlee, Kimberley


Arguing for the moral and legal defensibility of conscientious disobedience, and particularly civil disobedience, this book first examines the morality of conscience and conscientiousness and then the legality of conscientious breach of law.


THE NEW KINSHIP: Constructing Donor-Conceived Families
K3611.A77 C34 2013
By Cahn, Naomi R.


The New Kinship details how families are made and how bonds are created between families in the brave new world of reproductive technology. Naomi Cahn, a nationally-recognized expert on reproductive technology and the law, shows how these new kinship bonds dramatically exemplify the ongoing cultural change in how we think about family. The issues Cahn explores in this book will resonate with anyone and everyone who has struggled with questions of how to define themselves in connection with their own biological, legal, or social families.
