    The Modern Law Library

    The good news for anyone aspiring to a life of crime is that you may be a multiple offender of federal criminal laws without even being aware of it.


    Mike Chase, a white-collar defense attorney with Shipman & Goodwin, launched his popular Twitter account @CrimeADay in an attempt to begin counting how many federal crimes are on the books in the Unites States. Five years later, he’s still going strong, and the exercise led him to write How to Become a Federal Criminal: An Illustrated Handbook for the Aspiring Offender.


    In this episode of the Modern Law Library, Chase talks with the ABA Journal’s Lee Rawles about crimes like impersonating a mailman, importing pregnant polar bears, selling mail-order dentures, and letting your falcon be filmed for a movie.

    Beginning before Stonewall and continuing in the 50 years since, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people have regularly turned to the courts for protection against mistreatment or to overturn laws that targeted them. From H.I.V.-based discrimination to the fight for marriage equality to President Trump’s attempt to ban transgender people from the military, courts across the country have played a key role in the story of L.G.B.T.Q. rights in America.

    EPISODE NOTES

    Are you slipping on keeping up with your clients and meeting important deadlines? For many lawyers, they use paralegals and legal assistants to help them practice law with superior organization and efficiency. In this Legal ToolkitJared Correia hosts Keith Shannon in a discussion about the importance of paralegals and legal assistants in the legal profession. They define both roles and the types of work they can and cannot do according to ABA guidelines for paralegal services. They also talk about the types of law office technology and training that lawyers should invest in for their paralegals to help maximize skills in needed tech and e-Discovery. Finishing up, they address how to hire qualified paralegals and avoid paralegal burnout.

    “Every generation is responsible for creating democracy anew, a democracy that is relevant and responsive to the needs of that generation. One that expands upon and completes the previous work of the prior generation. In my view, the civil rights movement that began in the ’50s remains unfinished. Daily we hear in the news about actions like #Blacklivesmatter, #Metoo, and #Timesup—just to name a few. Frederick Douglass said, “Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, or degrade them, neither person nor property is safe.”…We must ensure that income inequality doesn’t translate into a two-tiered justice system.” – California Chief Justice Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye during the March 2019 State of the Judiciary Address.

    Last week, Justice John Paul Stevens sat down for a wide-ranging telephone interview with me. The occasion was the recent publication of his memoir, The Making of a Justice: Reflections on My First 94 Years” (Little, Brown and Company, 2019). A lightly edited transcript of our conversation follows.

    This year, a landmark case challenging the constitutionality of money bail is expected to come before the California Supreme Court. This is the culmination of an effort to reform the state’s troubled money bail system, pitting justice-reform advocates against the for-profit bail industry.

    California Supreme Court Historical Society

    Spring / Summer 2019



    When Joshua Paul Groban took the oath of office as an associate justice of the California Supreme Court on January 3, 2019, he was in one sense a familiar face to attorneys and judges throughout the state. As a senior advisor to Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr., Justice Groban screened and interviewed more than a thousand candidates for judicial office. Over an eight-year span, the governor, with Groban’s assistance and advice, appointed 644 judges, including four of the seven current justices on the California Supreme Court and 52 justices on the California Courts of Appeal. These appointments have transformed California’s judiciary.
