            Soon to be a major motion-picture, starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx, and Brie Larson. Named a Book of the Year by the New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Esquire, and Time. The US has the highest rate of incarceration in the world. One in every 15 people born the...re today is expected to go to prison. For black men this figure rises to one in 3. And Death Row is disproportionately black, too. Bryan Stevenson grew up poor in the racially segregated South. His innate sense of justice made him a brilliant young lawyer, and one of his first defendants was Walter McMillian, a black man sentenced to die for the murder of a white woman - a crime he insisted he didn't commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, startling racial inequality, and legal brinksmanship - and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever. At once an unforgettable account of an idealistic lawyer's coming of age and a moving portrait of the lives of those he has defended, Just Mercy is an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of justice.

            This major collection contains selected papers from the third Public Law Conference, an international conference hosted by the University of Melbourne in July 2018. The collection includes contributions by leading academics and senior judges from across the common law world, incl...uding Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. The collection explores the frontiers of public law, examining the intersection of public law with other significant fields, and considering the possibilities for legal thought and legal development at public law's edges. The essays provide striking insights into public law, and its place within the wider legal landscape. The collection addresses four principal frontiers of public law - public law and international law; public law and indigenous law, rights and culture; public law and other domestic fields including private law and criminal law; and public law and public administration. In common with the two previous books in the Public Law Conference series, this collection provides invaluable insights at the cutting-edge of public law, and is essential reading for those working in the field.

            Baby Jails: The Fight to End the Incarceration of Refugee Children in America
             

            Baby Jails: The Fight to End the Incarceration of Refugee Children in America (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            I worked in a trailer that ICE had set aside for conversations between the women and the attorneys. While we talked, their children, most of whom seemed to be between three and eight years old, played with a few toys on the floor. It was hard for me to get my head around the idea... of a jail full of toddlers, but there they were. For decades, advocates for refugee children and families have fought to end the U.S. government's practice of jailing families for months or even years until courts could decide on their claims for asylum. Baby Jails is the history of that legal and political struggle narrated engagingly by Philip G. Schrag, a legal activist, who takes readers on a thirty-year journey of the battle to end the detention of migrant children. Using the Reno v. Flores case of 1985 as a backdrop, Schrag shares the story of 15-year-old unaccompanied Jenny Lisette Flores, who languished in a makeshift jail of a motel surrounded entirely of barbed wire, chronicling legal twists and turns on the case over the years. Yet no one could have predicted how Flores would become a significant target for the Trump administration. Honing in on developments over the last two years, Schrag provides recommendations to reform a system that has caused anguish and trauma for parents and children alike. Provocative and timely, Baby Jails exposes the continuing struggle between the government and immigrant advocates over the duration and conditions of confinement of children who are simply seeking safety in the U.S.
