V.S. Woeste, A. Mermelstein, E. Zadoff, and M. Galanter. "Jews and the Law." Quid Pro Books, 2014.

This book discusses what it is to be Jewish, and more problematically, what it means to be Jewish and participate in secular legal systems as lawyers, judges, legal thinkers, civil rights advocates, and teachers. Composed of various essays that trace the history and chart the sociology of the Jewish legal profession over time, this book reveals new stories and layers of the American Jewish experience in relation to secular legal systems, as well as explores the impact Jewish lawyers and law firms have had on American legal practice.
