Janet E. Gans Epner.

Visible Invisibility: Women of Color in Law Firms. American Bar Association, c2006.

KF299.A35 A44 2006

 

To fully examine advancement and retention issues among women attorneys of color, the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession embarked upon a research initiative to answer rarely asked questions regarding women of color in the legal profession. Visible Invisibility: Women of Color in Law Firms presents the findings of the survey and focus group research and concludes with specific recommendations for law firms interested in retaining women of color. Visible Invisibility is a critical tool that law firms can incorporate into their diversity initiatives to eliminate the double whammy of gender and race discrimination faced by women of color.

 

 

Josh Chafetz.

Democracy's privileged few : legislative privilege and democratic norms in the British and American constitutions.  Yale University Press, c2007. 

K3324.C47 2007

 

Comparing the freedoms and protections of members of the United States Congress with those of Britain’s Parliament in historical context, the author explores how and why legislators in Britain and America have been granted special privileges in five areas: jurisdictional conflicts between the courts and the legislative houses, freedom of speech, freedom from civil arrest, contested elections, and the disciplinary powers of the houses.  In recounting and analyzing the remarkable story of how parliamentary government emerged and evolved in Britain and how it crossed the Atlantic, he illuminates a variety of important constitutional issues, including the separation of powers, the nature of representation, and the difference between written and unwritten constitutionalism.
