Robert A. Brooks. Cheaper by the hour : temporary lawyers and the deprofessionalization of the law. Temple University Press, 2011.

KF299.T46B76 2011

 

Recent law school graduates often work as temporary attorneys, but law firm layoffs and downsizing have strengthened the temporary attorney industry.  This book provides the first in-depth account of these workers.  Drawing from participant observation and interviews, the author provides a richly detailed ethnographic account of freelance attorneys in Washington, DC.  He documents how firms break a lawyer's work into discrete components that require less skill to realize maximum profits and argues that information technology and efficiency demands are further stratifying the profession and creating a new underclass of lawyers who do low-end commodity work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alison Duxbury. The participation of states in international organisations : the role of human rights and democracy. Cambridge University Press, 2011.

JZ4850.D89 2011

 

The admission of a state to membership is an important decision for an international organization. In making this determination, organizations are increasingly promoting the observance of human rights and democratic governance as relevant principles.  They have also applied the same criteria in resolving the question of whether existing members should be excluded from an organization's processes.  Through a systematic examination of the records, proceedings and practice of international organizations, this book examines the role and legitimacy of human rights and democracy as membership criteria.
