Memoir; Law System
She was the first African American female judge in the superior court of Northern California.
She takes you through her life as a judge. We see first hand how judges are put into positions that can alter the very foundation of a person’s life.
She describes her time as a judge and what went well and what could have been better.
Through cases she has overseen, we get an education on our justice system and how some laws are just while others need to be addressed and changed.
From juvenile delinquency to divorces to the jury selection process, we get an inside look into a judge’s heart and mind.
“—this is a book for anyone who wants to know what our legal system, for better or worse, means to the everyday lives of all Americans.”
