Legal Briefs: The Ups and Downs of Life in the Law

From the publisher:

In Legal Briefs: The Ups and Downs of Life in the Law, editor Roger Witten takes us behind the scenes of some of the most fascinating court cases of the last few decades while introducing us to the sometimes strange, and sometimes comical, situations these lawyers have experienced during their long careers.

This collection features 20 lawyers of varying backgrounds and expertise writing with pizzazz, humor and passion about such significant events as the Watergate break-in, the 9/11 Commission, the Iranian hostage crisis and more. They write of tackling issues concerning money in politics and Citizens United; same-sex parental custody rights and the contempt charge against Martin Luther King Jr. And we are also treated to intimate portraits of some unique clients and towering figures in the legal world.
