The Law Library has recently revived our recent acquisitions bookshelf, where we display new library titles. It’s always fascinating to see what has come in recently, and patrons seem to feel the same, as we’ve had a number of check outs from those shelves.

Here are some recent titles that the Kathrine R. Everett Law Library has acquired:

Breaking the Promise of Brown: The Resegregation of America’s Schools . Stephen Breyer. Brookings Institute Press, 2022.

This title republishes Justice Breyer’s dissent from Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District No. 1 and Meredith v. Jefferson County Board of Education, 551 U.S. 701 (2007). In addition to the text of the dissent, this volume includes an introduction by Thiru Vignarajah, one of Justice Breyer’s former law clerks, that contextualizes the dissent and its history. The appendix also includes data on resegregation trends in U.S. schools.

Environmental Law, Disrupted . Keith Hirokawa and Jessica Owley, eds. Environmental Law Institute, 2021.

This collection of essays argues for legal change and “disruption” as a solution to climate change and climate disaster. Authors examine challenges like biodiversity loss, environmental racism, and federal climate litigation, and suggest solutions and alternate strategies for addressing the connections between environmental law and threats to the environment.

Hospital and Physician Law . Marilyn E. Phelan, Kimberly P. Mayfield, and Ryan P. Phelan. Vandeplas Publishing, 2022.

This text provides comprehensive coverage of legal issues for hospitals and physicians, from organizational structures of hospitals to patient rights to liability to different types of government regulation. The authors are all practicing attorneys with a wide variety of specialties, including tax law, bankruptcy, nonprofit law, and medical malpractice.

Unequal Profession: Race and Gender in Legal Academia . Meera E. Deo. Stanford University Press, 2019.

Deo is a Professor of Law at Thomas Jefferson School of Law and is also the director of the Law School Survey of Student Engagement. Deo’s work here examines and explains the results of the Diversity in Legal Academia project, a systemic multimethod analysis of law faculty experience. Each chapter highlights a different “pressure point” for law faculty, including “Barriers to Entry,” “Tenure and Promotion Challenges,” and “In Pursuit of Work/Life Balance.” In addition to outlining the challenges that law faculty face, the book also recommends methods of support and solutions for various problems.
