A Conversation with Joan Williams - Legally Speaking

Hastings professor Joan C. Williams has been called a “rock star” in the field of gender studies. For more than a quarter of a century, her work in the areas of pregnancy discrimination and work-family accommodation have helped define the issue of gender equality under the law. At Hastings, in 1997, she founded—and still runs—the Center for WorkLife Law, and she’s written many academic articles and books on the topic, including her recent much-lauded title What Works for Women at Work. (Williams cowrote the book with her daughter, Rachel Dempsey.) In August, Hastings colleague Veena Dubal spoke with Williams about her career and about what she thinks American businesses must do to achieve more gender equality.

A Conversation with Eva Paterson - Legally Speaking

In 1970, as a 20-year-old college student, Eva Paterson famously debated Vice President Spiro Agnew on The David Frost Show. She went on to become a fierce advocate for civil rights, eventually working for 26 years at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights – including more than a dozen years as its executive director. In 2003 Paterson co-founded the Oakland-based Equal Justice Society, which works to close racial divides “through law, social science, and the arts.” Along with advocacy, the Society co-authors amicus briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court on issues of equal protection and litigates civil rights class actions. In December, Paterson spoke with attorney Paul Henderson, the deputy chief of staff, public safety, for the mayor of San Francisco, about her career, affirmative action, the death penalty, and the nature of implicit bias.

Defending Serial Killers - Legally Speaking

John Henry Browne is a criminal defense attorney in Seattle who is best known for his work on behalf of the notorious. One of his first clients was Ted Bundy—a vicious, serial killer who murdered scores of women in at least a half-dozen states. More recently, he represented Robert Bales, a former U.S. Army sergeant who is now serving a life prison sentence for the murder of 16 Afghani civilians. These were, to say the least, extremely difficult cases for a defense attorney to take on. But no matter how vilified his clients, Browne could always be counted on to give prosecutors a rough time. As one prosecutor once observed: Browne in the courtroom is like “a pit bull on crack.” In November, Browne spoke with California Lawyer contributing editor Martin Lasden.

The CIA's Lawyer - Legally Speaking

Over the 67-year history of the CIA, no agency staff attorney has ever wielded more influence or power than John Rizzo. A self-described “company man,” Rizzo joined the Central Intelligence Agency back in 1976 and over the next three-and-a-half decades helped guide the agency through a host of controversies and scandals—from Iran-Contra to the extraordinary rendition of suspected terrorists. Earlier this year, after the publication of his fascinating memoir (“Company Man: Thirty Years of Controversy and Crisis in the CIA)”, Rizzo spoke with California Lawyer Contributing Editor Martin Lasden.

In Defense of the Innocent with Barry Scheck - Legally Speaking

Over the last two decades no criminal defense lawyer in America has had a more profound impact on advancing the rights of the convicted than has Barry Scheck. In 1992, when DNA testing was still in its infancy, Scheck, along with his colleague Peter Neufeld, founded The Innocence Project, which has since figured prominently in the release of hundreds of prison inmates. Scheck also achieved lasting fame for defending O.J. Simpson when the former football star was charged with murder. Scheck spoke with California Lawyer contributing editor Martin Lasden about his extraordinary career and the controversies surrounding it.

Playing Solomon: How Much is a Life Really Worth?

Kenneth Feinberg is best known for the work that he did as the Special Master of the Victim Compensation Fund that was established by Congress to distribute billions of taxpayer dollars to those who were either injured or lost loved ones during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Since then he has presided over the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund to compensate the victims of the Virginia Tech shootings, the BP Oil Spill Fund, the Aurora Victim Relief Fund, and the Boston Marathon Fund. Currently, Feinberg is working with General Motors to vet the claims that are now being made as a result of a defective ignition switch that has so far been blamed for at least 13 deaths. In January, Feinberg spoke with UC Hastings law professor Evan Lee about the challenges he's faced. Series: "Legally Speaking" [Public Affairs] [Show ID: 28448]

Making Peace in the Middle East -- Legally Speaking

As both a diplomat and a scholar, Dennis Ross has had a truly extraordinary career. Under President George H.W. Bush, he led the U.S. State Department's Policy Planning Staff. He also served as a Special Envoy to the Middle East under President Bill Clinton, and was a Special Advisor to President Barack Obama before stepping down in 2011 to become a full-time fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. In March, just one month before the breakdown of yet another series of Israeli-Palestinian talks, Ross spoke to California Lawyer contributing editor Martin Lasden about his own experiences in that part of the world and why cutting a comprehensive peace deal between Palestinians and Israelis remains so difficult.

The Lawyer Who Saved Obamacare -- Legally Speaking

As the 46th Solicitor General of the United States, Donald B. Verrilli Jr. is best known for the case he made before the U.S. Supreme Court in 2012 in which he successfully defended the constitutionality of President Obama's Affordable Care Act. Also that year, he scored a big victory when the High Court largely struck down an immigration law passed by the state of Arizona. Verrilli speaks with UC Hastings Law Professor Rory Little in San Francisco two years after those rulings about what it takes to be an effective Solicitor General and the biggest on-the-job challenges he's had to face.

The Trial of Edward Snowman--Legally Speaking (Special Edition)

In late 2012, an NSA contractor named Edward Snowden leaked to the press almost 200,000 classified documents exposing secrets about the scope and methods of American intelligence gathering. To some this made him a hero; to others a traitor. In this very special edition of Legally Speaking we pose a set of hypotheticals to an all-star panel of experts including New York Times reporter Charlie Savage, former NSA director Michael Hayden, and Washington, D.C., trial attorney Abbe Lowell that in effect put both Snowden (renamed "Snowman") and the NSA on trial.

The Politics of International Justice - Legally Speaking

During the waning days of South Africa's apartheid era, Judge Richard Goldstone led a series of investigations that exposed the human rights abuses committed by his own country's security forces--an effort that may well have prevented a full blown civil war. He then went on to serve as the chief prosecutor for two international war crimes tribunals; one for the former Yugoslavia, the other for Rwanda. In early December, Judge Goldstone spoke with California Lawyer magazine's contributing editor, Martin Lasden. Series: "Legally Speaking" [Public Affairs] [Show ID: 27829]
