The Law Library acquires new books every day. Besides textbooks and commentaries on major areas of law, the library also has a lot to offer in more specific fields of law. In a series of blog posts, we will showcase books on a variety of different topics. This second blog in the series highlights some new books related to feminism and law.
Feminist Judgments Series
Earlier this year, the Law Library added the Feminist Judgments Series: Rewritten Judicial Opinions to its collection. The books in this series rewrite key (U.S.) judicial decisions using a broad approach to feminist methods and theories. Each book focuses on a specific topic, for example family law, tax law, criminal law, and employment discrimination.
