Description Ordinary Injustice de Amy Bach:

"A groundbreaking book . . . revealing the systemic, everyday problems in our courts that must be addressed if justice is truly to be served."--Doris Kearns GoodwinAttorney and journalist Amy Bach spent eight years investigating the widespread courtroom failures that each day upend lives across America. What she found was an assembly-line approach to justice: a system that rewards mediocre advocacy, bypasses due process, and shortchanges both defendants and victims to keep the court calendar moving. Here is the public defender who pleads most of his clients guilty with scant knowledge about their circumstances- the judge who sets outrageous bail for negligible crimes- the prosecutor who habitually declines to pursue significant cases- the court that works together to achieve a wrongful conviction. Going beyond the usual explanations of bad apples and meager funding, "Ordinary Injustice" reveals a clubby legal culture of compromise, and shows the tragic consequences that result when communities mistake the rules that lawyers play by for the rule of law. It is time, Bach argues, to institute a new method of checks and balances that will make injustice visible--the first and necessary step to reform. Amy Bach, a member of the New York bar, has written on law for "The Nation," "The American Lawyer," and "New York" magazine, among other publications. For her work in progress on "Ordinary Injustice," Bach received a Soros Media Fellowship, a special J. Anthony Lukas citation, and a Radcliffe Fellowship. She lives in Rochester, New York, where she taught legal studies at the University of Rochester.

Once I started reading, I finished in five days; which is less time than I took in a book!
