Criminal Practice

Ingrid Eagly

Criminal practice demands of new advocates a daunting array of skills. They must be interviewers, investigators, counselors, researchers, scribes, planners, negotiators, ethicists, strategists, and courtroom protectors of truth, justice, and the oppressed. Mastering these many skills takes time, a luxury the system too rarely affords. Here between two covers is a wise and readable guide to all facets of a new advocate's role. More than a trial-practice manual, this handbook looks beneath a lawyer's public duties to the preparation and planning that lead to courtroom success. And it gives both prosecutors and defenders an insider's view of their counterparts' roles, lending insights that build both effectiveness and mutual respect.

A Short & Happy Guide to Conquering the MBE

Don L. Doernberg

The Multistate Bar Exam is intimidating because it covers a wide array of subjects and because it is all multiple-choice questions. If you feel overwhelmed by all the subjects and the nuances of them and have never liked multiple-choice questions, particularly in law school, then this book is precisely what you need.Practice multiple-choice questions can serve two purposes. The more common is that they allow you to have some sense of how you are doing—an assessment function. The less common but far more useful function is that they provide a structured study method for review of material. Few students use them that way, but those who do reap great rewards.This small volume will show you how to use practice multiple-choice questions to greatest advantage. That involves changing the way you approach those questions. Conquering the MBE gives you a step-by-step process for attacking every multiple-choice question in every MBE subject, with lots of examples. You will discover that most questions offer review of four concepts rather than just one, and they do so on concrete contexts, not in the abstract. You will also discover that when you do this step-by-step review, one answer, and only one answer, is correct.The authors have tutored hundreds of law students in using the method presented. It works.

The Making of Reverse Discrimination

Ellen Messer-Davidow

This book about DeFunis v. Odegaard and Regents of the University of California v. Bakke, the first two cases challenging race-conscious admissions to professional schools to reach the US Supreme Court, works on legal-judicial discourse, showing how the mechanisms of law, the shape-shifting capacity of language, and the pressures of social surrounds created white-against-white conflicts that marginalized the persons, voices, and interests of minority applicants and their communities, thereby reproducing the regime of white privilege and minority disadvantage that structure higher education to this day.

Critical Justice

Francisco Valdes

Critical Justice equips students and teachers with a framework for confronting systemic injustice by developing systemic advocacy projects rooted in insights of the critical schools of legal knowledge and field-based advocacy approaches. The textbook describes both law's complicity in maintaining injustice and its importance as a tool in struggles to advance equal justice. Drawing on iconic and cutting-edge writings, the textbook outlines the "Critical Challenge" for advocates: how to translate the noble promise of equal justice into lived social realities for all—how to use law for justice.The textbook prepares students to use law for justice by developing systemic advocacy projects that overcome the "blindfolds" and "handcuffs" of traditional legal education and practice. Critical Justice's conceptual and practical toolkit focuses on four key missing elements—social identities, groups, interests, and power—to explain the persistence of systemic injustice, and on redesigned professional norms to promote collaboration with subordinated communities. The textbook defines and illustrates systemic advocacy: systemic advocates craft ameliorative fixes to discrete problems while also transforming the playing field by building the organized power of subordinated groups and shifting consciousness and culture to undermine supremacist ideologies. Critical Justice also presents a template for designing advocacy projects to help students craft fellowship projects and pursue dream jobs.Critical Justice fills a gap in racial and social justice curriculum that connects the dots among systems and oppressions that persist across time and borders. With all author proceeds going to an academic nonprofit with antisubordination aims, this textbook is truly a collective undertaking in praxis toward equal justice for all.
