Douglas M. Branson

No Seat at the Table: How Corporate Governance and Law Keep Women Out of the Boardroom. New York University Press, 2007  HD6054.4.U6 B73 2007


Utilizing corporate governance models applied at Fortune 500 companies, hundreds of Title VII discrimination cases, and proxy statements, Douglas M. Branson suggests that women have been ill-advised by experts, who tend to teach females how to act like their male, executive counterparts. Instead, he argues women who aspire to the boardroom should focus on the decision-making processes nominating committees—usually dominated by white men—employ when voting on membership.  Based on empirical evidence, Branson concludes that women have to follow different paths than men in order to gain CEO status, and encourages women to make flexible, conscious, and often frequent shifts in their professional behaviors and work ethics as they climb the corporate ladder.

Federal Preemption of State and Local Law: Legislation, Regulation, and Litigation. American Bar Association, 2006

KF4600.O74 2006

Preemption is a doctrine of American constitutional law, under which states and local governments are deprived of their power to act in a given area. This book covers not only the basics of preemption but also focuses on such topics as federal mechanisms for agency preemption, implied forms of preemption, and defensive use of federal preemption in civil litigation.
