    In Defense of Women PDF/EPUB Ò In Defense Kindle - defense mobile, women kindle, In Defense epub, In Defense of Women EpubOkay I have a new heroine and her name is Nancy Gertner I have never in my life wanted to be a criminal defense lawyer but she made it sound incredibly rewarding AND she did tons of civil rights work too AND was appointed to the federal bench In the preface Gertner talks about a panel that she and Sonia Sotomayor both sat on in the late 90s where they were asked about how one became a judge This is one of my new favorite passages of all time slightly paraphrased for brevitySotomayor You graduate with a stellar record You work as a prosecutor in the celebrated Manhattan DA's office You take care not to be publicly associated with controversial issues You demonstrate that you can be a neutral temperate juristGertner You graduate with a stellar

    In Defense of Women PDF/EPUB Ò In Defense Kindle - defense mobile, women kindle, In Defense epub, In Defense of Women EpubInteresting read written by a woman who was one of the first on the front line in women's advocacy A reminder that in the 1960's there was no protective measures in place to protect women's rights no Roe vs Wade the ERA was in its infancy

    In Defense of Women PDF/EPUB Ò In Defense Kindle - defense mobile, women kindle, In Defense epub, In Defense of Women EpubI'm surprised that the average rating 378 at present for this book isn't higher; I'm also surprised that the lower rating readers haven't included any commentaryIn the last six months I've attended two events where Judge Gertner was a speaker so a number of the anecdotes were not new to me Even so it was hard to put this book down It's not shocking that she writes clearly and draws the reader into the story those skills have made her the lawyer she is I especially liked that she tells many of these vignettes in such a way that you want to know how the case ends up but without manipulating the reader into feeling the suspense She doesn't employ any of the clichés of courtroom drama or oversimplify or mischaracterize legal doctrine that you sometimes see in writing about the law for lay audiences This is a book that lawyers probably experienced ones and certainly green ones like myself can really appreciateI find myself feeling a bit conflicted about how she writ

    In Defense of Women PDF/EPUB Ò In Defense Kindle - defense mobile, women kindle, In Defense epub, In Defense of Women EpubAs a lawyer and a feminist who also represents many of the same types of clients as Judge Gertner did I absolutely loved this book It was inspiring and insightful and for many of the stories she related brave I particularly loved the chapter on her representation of an accused rapist and how she balanced her feminist sensibilities with her representation of a man she was convinced had not committed a crime Having a criminal defense attorney as a father and having struggled with wanting to be a defense attorney in law school and ultimately rejecting that path I truly appreciated her thoug

    In Defense of Women PDF/EPUB Ò In Defense Kindle - defense mobile, women kindle, In Defense epub, In Defense of Women EpubI liked it It wasn't a must read although I've heard Judge Gertner speak and she really is a must listen to The content of this book was great Her story was interesting and she done a lot of interesting work the delivery just could have been a little better The first few chapters were cohesive but the last few felt a little rushed I can see where it would be hard
