A ’70’S Woman’S View Of 40 Years In The Life Of The Law, Drucilla Stender Ramey 2017 Golden Gate University School of Law

A ’70’S Woman’S View Of 40 Years In The Life Of The Law, Drucilla Stender Ramey

Golden Gate University Law Review

In reflecting on 45 years of the life of the law in the Bay Area, it was initially tempting to contrast the grim reality of the new Administration with a seemingly kinder and gentler time. But in truth those halcyon days of memory actually began with the landslide reelection of Richard Nixon, emblematic of a decade here that was scarred by unimaginable violence — from the Zebra killings and the Patty Hearst kidnapping to the assassinations of Mayor George Moscone and gay rights icon Harvey Milk; from the Jonestown massacre of over 900 followers of the Unification Church to the gunning ...

Life As A Civil Rights Lawyer In The San Francisco Bay Area, John L. Burris

Golden Gate University Law Review

As a civil rights lawyer for almost 40 years, I have represented over 1,000 victims of police misconduct, thousands in class action employment and toxic tort cases, defendants in many serious criminal cases, and an array of high-profile public figures and professional athletes. During the course of this article, I will write about a selection of cases that are most meaningful and impactful to me. This article also addresses the development of my high-profile status related to my involvement with cases of public interest.


The Office Of The City Attorney Of San Francisco, Louise Renne 2017 Renne Sloan Holtzman Sakai, LLP

The Office Of The City Attorney Of San Francisco, Louise Renne

Golden Gate University Law Review

The San Francisco City Attorney’s Office serves the Mayor, Board of Supervisors, and other elected officials as well as the approximately 100 departments, boards, commissions, and offices that comprise the City and County of San Francisco’s government. In many ways, the office is unique among city attorney offices, both because of the extraordinary scope of activities performed by the City and County of San Francisco’s government, and the scope of the City Attorney’s Office activities within that structure. At the outset, it is important to note that the San Francisco City Attorney is elected — comparatively unusual ...

Golden Gate University School Of Law: A Bridge To The Profession In The Heart Of San Francisco, Rachel A. Van Cleave 2017 Golden Gate University School of Law

Golden Gate University School Of Law: A Bridge To The Profession In The Heart Of San Francisco, Rachel A. Van Cleave

Golden Gate University Law Review

An over 115-year San Francisco institution devoted to opening legal education and the profession to people of diverse backgrounds and experiences, Golden Gate University School of Law (GGU Law) has been a cornerstone of the Bay Area legal community. GGU Law’s mission, graduates, and academic leaders have played an integral role to the fabric of the San Francisco Bay Area legal community and that has shaped a progressive use of the law that seeks to protect the rights of those who otherwise lack a strong political or legal voice. These contributions continue to reverberate throughout California and beyond. This ...

Fixing Law Reviews, Barry Friedman

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

Very few people are happy at present with the law review publishing process, from article submission and selection to editing. Complaints are longstanding, and similar ones emerge from faculty and students alike. Yet, heretofore, change has not occurred. Instead, we are locked in our ugly world of submit and expedite, stepping on the toes of numerous student editors in the process. And the editing process falls far short of ideal.

This Article recommends wholesale change to the submission and editing process. The first part details the dysfunctions of the current system, including everything from lack of student capacity to evaluate ...
