Cambridge Studies in Law and Society: Diversity in Practice: Race, Gender, and Class in Legal and Professional Careers
Expressions of support for diversity are nearly ubiquitous among contemporary law firms and corporations. Organizations back these rhetorical commitments with dedicated diversity staff and various diversity and inclusion initiatives. Yet, the goal of proportionate representation for people of color and women remains unrealized. Members of historically underrepresented groups remain seriously disadvantaged in professional training and work environments that white, upper-class men continue to dominate. While many professional labor markets manifest patterns of demographic inequality, these patterns are particularly pronounced in the law and elite segments of many professions. Diversity in Practice analyzes the disconnect between expressed commitments to diversity and practical achievements, revealing the often obscure systemic causes that drive persistent professional inequalities. These original contributions build on existing literature and forge new paths in explaining enduring patterns of stratification in professional careers. These more realistic assessments provide opportunities to move beyond mere rhetoric to something approaching diversity in practice.

East West Street: Non-fiction Book of the Year 2017
THE BRITISH BOOK AWARDS NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR 2017 SUNDAY TIMES TOP 10 BESTSELLER When he receives an invitation to deliver a lecture in the Ukrainian city of Lviv, international lawyer Philippe Sands begins a journey on the trail of his family's secret history. In doing so, he uncovers an astonishing series of coincidences that lead him halfway across the world, to the origins of international law at the Nuremberg trial. Interweaving the stories of the two Nuremberg prosecutors (Hersch Lauterpacht and Rafael Lemkin) who invented the crimes or genocide and crimes against humanity, the Nazi governor responsible for the murder of thousands in and around Lviv (Hans Frank), and incredible acts of wartime bravery, EAST WEST STREET is an unforgettable blend of memoir and historical detective story, and a powerful meditation on the way memory, crime and guilt leave scars across generations. * * * * * 'A monumental achievement: profoundly personal, told with love, anger and great precision' John le Carre 'One of the most gripping and powerful books imaginable' SUNDAY TIMES Winner: Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-fiction JQ-Wingate Literary Prize Hay Festival Medal for Prose

Crime or Compassion?: One Woman's Story of a Loving Friendship That Knew No Bounds
'I was torn. My best friend needed me. But little did I know then what the consequences of helping her would be...' In 2015, Gail O'Rorke stood trial on three counts of assisting in the suicide of her friend Bernadette Forde, who had taken her life in 2011 in the late stages of Multiple Sclerosis. Facing the possibility of fourteen years in prison for a crime she didn't commit, Gail was also grieving for the friend she'd lost. Here in Crime or Compassion? she takes us on the journey behind the events that led to her arrest: from her remarkable early years - growing up with an abusive father and her escape to a better life - to her enduring friendship with Bernadette and the highs and lows of caring for someone you love, to the moment she was arrested by Garda officers, signalling three of the worst years of her life. This is a story of friendship and selflessness, of the rules of a society sometimes at odds with the nature of personal suffering, and a gripping insight into the inner world of the courtroom: the characters, the colour, and the emotions that accompany standing in the dock, facing a jury of your peers.

Challenge and Change: Global Threats and the State in Twenty-First Century International Politics: 2016
This edited volume addresses how the state system, the organizing political institution in world politics, copes with challenges of rapid change, unanticipated crises, and general turmoil in the twenty-first century. These disruptions are occurring against the background of declining US influence and the rising power of countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Traditional inter-state security concerns coexist with new security preoccupations, such as rivalries likely to erupt over the resources of the global commons, the threat of cyber warfare, the ever-present threat of terrorism, and the economic and social repercussions of globalization. The contributors explore these key themes and the challenges posed by rapid change.

Religion as Empowerment: Global legal perspectives
This volume shows how and why legal empowerment is important for those exercising their religious rights under various jurisdictions, in conditions of legal pluralism. At the same time, it also questions the thesis that as societies become more modern, they also become less religious. The authors look beyond the rule of law orthodoxy in their consideration of the freedom of religion as a human right and place this discussion in a more plurality-sensitive context. The book sheds more light on the informal and/or customary mechanisms that explain the limited impact of law on individuals and groups, especially in non-Western societies. The focus is on discussing how religion and the exercise of religious rights may or may not empower individuals and social groups and improve access to human rights in general. This book is important reading for academics and practitioners of law and religion, religious rights, religious diversity and cultural difference, as well as NGOs, policy makers, lawyers and advocates at multicultural jurisdictions. It offers a contemporary take on comparative legal studies, with a distinct focus on religion as an identity marker.

Recovering Canada: The Resurgence of Indigenous Law
Canada is covered by a system of law and governance that largely obscures and ignores the presence of pre-existing Indigenous regimes. Indigenous law, however, has continuing relevance for both Aboriginal peoples and the Canadian state. In his in-depth examination of the continued existence and application of Indigenous legal values, John Borrows suggests how First Nations laws could be applied by Canadian courts, and tempers this by pointing out the many difficulties that would occur if the courts attempted to follow such an approach. By contrasting and comparing Aboriginal stories and Canadian case law, and interweaving political commentary, Borrows argues that there is a better way to constitute Aboriginal / Crown relations in Canada. He suggests that the application of Indigenous legal perspectives to a broad spectrum of issues that confront us as humans will help Canada recover from its colonial past, and help Indigenous people recover their country. Borrows concludes by demonstrating how Indigenous peoples' law could be more fully and consciously integrated with Canadian law to produce a society where two world views can co-exist and a different vision of the Canadian constitution and citizenship can be created.

Family Law
Family Law is an accessible, student-friendly textbook which provides a comprehensive foundation in the key topics covered by undergraduate courses. Written with clarity, Family Law offers an introduction not just to the black-letter law but also to the social, economic and historical developments that have helped to shape it, considering key academic debates and areas of controversy. Authored by a highly experienced lecturer, Family Law is structured in two parts around family law and child law, the framing areas of the common syllabus. Developed with all the latest legislative developments, case law and potential reforms in mind, including the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008, R (A child) [2009], Radmacher v Granatino [2009], Re AR (A Child: Relocation) [2010], and Kernott v Jones [2011], the Final Report of the Family Justice Review and the controversy over the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill 2011 (including the Family Law Manifesto campaign led by the Family Law Bar Association and supported by other organisations working with children and vulnerable families) this is the ideal textbook for all students of family or child law today. Student-friendly features include: * Outline contents at the beginning of each chapter which provide students with a context as they read; * Bulleted summaries at the end of each chapter which highlight and reinforce the key concepts; * Further reading lists which point students towards contemporary sources for more detailed study; * An introduction to the key academic debates and areas of controversy, helping students to deepen their critical evaluation of the subject; * A free companion website, which offers students the opportunity to test their own understanding and apply their knowledge to a set of hypothetical problem-based questions.

Living to Some Purpose: Memoirs of a Secular Iraqi and Arab Statesman
OFTEN DESCRIBED as Iraq's elder statesman, Dr Adnan Pachachi has enjoyed one of the longest and most distinguished political careers of modern times, both domestically and on the world stage. In a life spanning nine decades, he has served his country as Ambassador to the United Nations and as Foreign Minister, and has worked tirelessly to establish a secular and anti-sectarian political culture in Iraq. At the UN, where he was an eloquent advocate of the Palestinian cause, he was much admired for his mastery of procedure and his formidable debating skills. In 1969, a few months after the Ba'athist government took power in Baghdad, he resigned from the Iraqi foreign service while at the United Nations in New York. He would not see his country again for thirty-four years. At the invitation of Sheikh Zayed, he took up residence in Abu Dhabi where, until 1993, he played a central role in establishing the United Arab Emirates as a newly independent state. In 1991 he re-engaged with Iraqi politics when he became involved with the expatriate opposition. In 2003, at the age of eighty, he made the courageous decision to return to Iraq in the aftermath of the US invasion and the fall of Saddam Hussein. He became a member of the Governing Council, its President in January 2004, a member of the Interim National Council in 2004-05, and a member of the Iraqi Parliament from 2006 to 2010. In this honest and affecting memoir, in which he combines the political with the personal, Dr Pachachi charts the course of his lifelong dedication to democratic, pluralist, tolerant and civilized values.

The Magic Bracelet: Technology and Offender Supervision
In Europe, over 30,000 criminal offenders were electronically tagged in 2000, and over four times that number tagged elsewhere in the world. With over 20 countries now either starting new schemes or developing existing ones, these figures are expected to grow dramatically over the next few years - and the availability of satellite tracking and voice verification systems will also mean a wider variety of options as technology is increasingly used to supervise offenders. But how effective is it? Can it have any real impact on growing crime figures and on preventing offending, or does electronic tagging simply provide a short-term answer and an increasingly alienated criminal underclass? Is it just another 'quick fix' which will go the same way as so many penal initiatives? The Magic Bracelet is a global jigsaw of the very different ways in which new technology is being used, the known results to date and the lessons for criminal justice policy. Separate chapters cover the history and development of electronic tagging, experience in North America, the UK and Europe and elsewhere; operational issues, human and civil rights implications and future possibilities. It builds - quite substantially - on the author's previous writings in this field, including Tackling the Tag (Waterside Press, 1997).

The Content and Context of Hate Speech: Rethinking Regulation and Responses
The contributors to this volume consider whether it is possible to establish carefully tailored hate speech policies that are cognizant of the varying traditions, histories and values of different countries. Throughout, there is a strong comparative emphasis, with examples (and authors) drawn from around the world. All the authors explore whether or when different cultural and historical settings justify different substantive rules given that such cultural relativism can be used to justify content-based restrictions and so endanger freedom of expression. Essays address the following questions, among others: is hate speech in fact so dangerous or harmful to vulnerable minorities or communities as to justify a lower standard of constitutional protection? What harms and benefits accrue from laws that criminalize hate speech in particular contexts? Are there circumstances in which everyone would agree that hate speech should be criminally punished? What lessons can be learned from international case law?

Law in Context: Laws and Societies in Global Contexts: Contemporary Approaches
This text seeks to situate socio-legal studies in a global context. Law and society scholarship in the United States and elsewhere typically assumes one legal system and one society and explores the relationship between them. Such a narrow endeavor perpetuates a Western international relations model that too often conflates law, culture and the nation-state. A more global socio-legal perspective engages with multiple laws and societies within and across national borders and recognizes diverse socio-legal systems based on very different historical and cultural traditions, interacting on multiple local, national and global levels. This more global perspective also reveals an array of transnational issues including regional conflicts, genocide, mass immigration, environmental degradation, and climate change that have consistently defied resolution via conventional international system of governance. The approach to global legal pluralism outlined here seeks to provide a framework for envisioning new global governance regimes that move beyond state-based solutions to deal with trenchant transnational challenges.

The Parking Ticket Awards: Crazy Councils, Meter Madness and Traffic Warden Hell
This book is enough to drive you parking mad. It's bad enough to return to your parked car to find a ticket stuck on your car windscreen. But what if you've still got an hour left on your permit, but the traffic warden decides to pre-emptively strike, as he thinks you'll go over? Or if your car is sat there because it has broken down? Or if your car isn't a car at all, but a bus, a rabbit hutch or a dead cow? Barrie Segal is 'the UK's leading parking ticket expert' according to Top Gear's Richard Hammond. In 'The Parking Ticket Awards', he has trawled through his vast collection of parking ticket stories to reveal the worst and weirdest traffic warden behaviour. The stories include - the dead cows ticketed as 'unattended vehicles'; the stolen car that was left as a burnt out wreck, and ticketed; the National Blood Service van that was ticketed as people donated blood inside; the bus that picked up both passengers...and a ticket; the van driver who threw his parking ticket on the pavement in disgust...only to be fined for littering; and, how even celebs like Madonna, Jude Law and Kate Middleton found themselves on the wrong side of the law. So park yourself down and indulge yourself in this hilarious compendium of traffic warden tales - it will be just the ticket.

From Barista to Solicitor: An Indian Girl's Epic Journey
This book is a fictionalised account of young Indian girls struggles to become a lawyer. It is a light-hearted but very real account of the problems she encountered. '...The interview day finally arrived. Ayesha felt she had hardly slept a wink. She was greeted by a warm friendly lady. She seemed warm. Ayesha thought to herself. Ayesha had always prided herself on being able to separate the wheat from the chaff but occasionally there would be someone who would slip through her usually sound judgment net. 'Would you like a cup of tea' the lady enquired in an animated fashion. 'Yes please', said Ayesha. The lady disappeared into a small nearby kitchen whilst Ayesha waited for her to return. 'So you want to be a lawyer,' the lady asked in a gentle tone, handing Ayesha a plate of biscuits simultaneously. 'Yes', said Ayesha, 'I'm not sure what the agency has told you. I have a training contract due to start in a year's time and am basically looking to fill the year. I want to be completely upfront with you. 'Yes, I know,' the lady replied, 'I thought of being a lawyer once but then circumstances meant I was steered into a different direction. It is a very honourable profession. I have read how hard it is to get a training contract. I have heard there are too many law students coming out of law school and just not enough places in law firms. You are very lucky to get a training contract.' 'Yes,' I guess I am', Ayesha replied. The lady was obviously unaware of all that Ayesha had been through to get to this point.'

A Practical Approach to Criminal Procedure
Now in its fourteenth edition, A Practical Approach to Criminal Procedure provides a complete guide to the criminal process in England and Wales. It explains what happens before the accused appears in court, the way in which prosecutions are commenced, funding by the criminal defence service, and bail. It describes proceedings in the magistrates' court, including summary trial and committal for sentence, as well as the way in which the youth court operates. Committal and transfer for trial are clearly explained and the process by which serious offences are sent direct to the Crown Court is also studied. Trial on indictment is discussed in detail, as are sentencing and appeals. This new edition has been fully updated to incorporate recent developments in the field. In particular, attention is paid to the changes resulting from the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act, as well as to recent Sentencing Guidelines. Changes to the PACE codes are also considered in detail. Very much a practical guide, this title makes frequent use of examples, flowcharts, and tables, and is specifically designed to assist the busy professional and student. A Practical Approach to Criminal Procedure is an indispensable resource for those working in this field. The A Practical Approach series is the perfect partner for practice work. Each title focuses on one field of the law and provides a comprehensive overview of the subject together with clear, practical advice and tips on issues likely to arise in practice. The books are also an excellent resource for those new to the law, where the expert overview and clear layout promote ease of understanding.

The Devil's Advocates: Greatest Closing Arguments in Criminal Law
In The Devil's Advocateswe turn our attention to the types of crimes and trials that have so captivated the public, cases that have also helped to illuminate underlying principals of the American criminal justice system. From a Tennessee sheriff turning a blind eye to a mob hell-bent on lynching a prisoner; to a single mother protesting a warrantless police search of her home, the cases in this book illustrate the drama behind the legal decisions that control our criminal justice system. Future President John Adams illustrates the principle that even the most despised and vilified criminal is entitled to a legal defense, in the argument he delivers on behalf of the British soldiers who shot and killed five Americans during the Boston Massacre. The always-controversial temporary insanity defense makes its debut within sight of the White House, when a prominent congressman guns down the district attorney over an extra-marital affair, in front of horrified onlookers. Clarence Darrow is represented with a ringing defense of a black family charged with using deadly force to defend themselves from a violent mob, an argument that refines the concept of self-defense - and its applicability to all races. The treason trial of Aaron Burr (who also killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel) for plotting to steal the western territories of the United States and form a new country with himself as its head, offers a fascinating glimpse into a rare type of prosecution, as well as a look at perhaps the most interesting traitor in the nation's history. And perhaps the most famous and significant of precedent-setting cases, that of Ernesto Miranda, an accused rapist who confessed to the crime without having been notified of his Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate himself (and his right to counsel) is analyzed in detail. These arguments - and the cases motivating them - provide the reader with a ringside seat to gripping drama, as well as to the shaping of the legal system we thrill to and curse at today.
