Call Number: KF373.D35 F37 2011
ISBN: 9780385522588
Publication Date: 2011
Summary: Clarence Darrow is the lawyer every law school student dreams of being: on the side of right, loved by many women, portrayed by Spencer Tracy. His days-long closing arguments, delivered without notes, won miraculous reprieves. Darrow left a promising career as a railroad lawyer during the tumultuous Gilded Age in order to champion poor workers, blacks, and social and political outcasts against big business, Jim Crow, and corrupt officials. He became famous defending union leader Eugene V. Debs in the landmark Pullman Strike case and went from one headline case to the next--until he was nearly crushed by an indictment for bribing a jury. He redeemed himself defending schoolteacher John Scopes in the "Monkey Trial," cementing his place in history. Journalist John A. Farrell draws on previously unpublished correspondence and memoirs to offer a candid account of Darrow's divorce, affairs, feuds, tactics, and controversies.--From publisher description

Summary: "The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, signed into law in July 2010, includes a new mechanism for offering financial awards to internal corporate "whistleblowers" who report instances of fraud to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Final whistleblower rules enacted by the SEC under the statute have been controversial, particularly in neglecting to require that corporate insiders make use internal corporate reporting channels as a prerequisite to eligibility for any subsequent bounty under Dodd-Frank. On May 11, 2011, RAND convened thought leaders and stakeholders from the government, industry, academic, and nonprofit sectors to discuss the potential impact of the Dodd-Frank whistleblower rules on corporations, the importance of internal compliance and reporting processes both for corporations and the regulatory community, and steps that might be taken to strengthen internal compliance and reporting in the era of Dodd-Frank. These proceedings summarize key issues and topics from the symposium and identify major points of agreement and disagreement among the participants. The proceedings also feature three invited papers presented at the symposium."--Publisher's website

The freedom to be racist? : how the United States and Europe struggle to preserve freedom and combat racism - Erik Bleich
Call Number: K5210 .B57 2011
ISBN: 0199739684
Publication Date: 2011
Summary: "We love freedom. We hate racism. But what do we do when these values collide? In this wide-ranging book, Erik Bleich explores policies that the United States, Britain, France, Germany, and other liberal democracies have implemented when forced to choose between preserving freedom and combating racism. Bleich's comparative historical approach reveals that while most countries have increased restrictions on racist speech, groups and actions since the end of World War II, this trend has resembled a slow creep more than a slippery slope. Each country has struggled to achieve a balance between protecting freedom and reducing racism, and the outcomes have been starkly different across time and place. Building on these observations, Bleich argues that we should pay close attention to the specific context and to the likely effects of any policy we implement, and that any response should be proportionate to the level of harm the racism inflicts. Ultimately, the best way for societies to preserve freedom while fighting racism is through processes of public deliberation that involve citizens in decisions that impact the core values of liberal democracies"-- Provided by publisher

Stories mediators tell - Eric Galton
Call Number: KF9084 .G35 2012
ISBN: 1614383561
Publication Date: 2012
Summary: "Stories Mediators Tell is a collection of inspirational stories shared by experts in the field who want others to experience the art of mediation. Their stories share advice on how to handle certain situations. The stories were not collected to glorify or to vilify mediation, but to make it accessible to readers generally to share what mediation is about and how certain situations were handled. The authors are motivated by the belief that mediation is not well understood--even its practitioners are often limited to their own experience, particularly given confidentiality strictures." from the publisher's website.

A troubled marriage : domestic violence and the legal system - Leigh Goodmark
Call Number: KF9322 .G65 2012
ISBN: 9780814732229
Publication Date: 2012
Summary: "The development of a legal regime to combat domestic violence in the United States has been lauded as one of the feminist movement's greatest triumphs. But, Leigh Goodmark argues, the resulting system is deeply flawed in ways that prevent it from assisting many women subjected to abuse. The current legal response to domestic violence is excessively focused on physical violence; this narrow definition of abuse fails to provide protection from behaviors that are profoundly damaging, including psychological, economic, and reproductive abuse. The system uses mandatory policies that deny women subjected to abuse autonomy and agency, substituting the state's priorities for women's goals. A Troubled Marriage is a provocative exploration of how the legal system's response to domestic violence developed, why that response is flawed, and what we should do to change it. Goodmark argues for an anti-essentialist system, which would define abuse and allocate power in a manner attentive to the experiences, goals, needs and priorities of individual women. Theoretically rich yet conversational, A Troubled Marriage imagines a legal system based on anti-essentialist principles and suggests ways to look beyond the system to help women find justice and economic stability, engage men in the struggle to end abuse, and develop community accountability for abuse"--Provided by publisher
