This book puts the law concerning lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people into a social context. The result is that students better understand the law by understanding the social issues underlying the legalities. Material providing background discussion (law review articles, journal articles from other disciplines, journalism, history, science, philosophy, traditional prose, and comparative law materials) supplements cases that involve all major aspects of sexual identity law. The book provides a detailed course designed for an upper-level law school seminar, but introductory explanation provided for major legal concepts makes it suitable for beginning students as well.

Mass media has become an integral part of the human experience. News travels around the world in a split second affecting people in other countries in untold ways. Although being on top of the news may be good, at least for news junkies, mass media also transmits values or the lack thereof, condenses complex events and thoughts to simplified sound bites and often ignores the essence of an event or story. The selective bibliography gathers the books and magazine literature over the previous ten years while providing access through author, title and subject indexes.

Magnus Hirschfeld war nicht nur, gemeinsam mit drei anderen Berliner Ärzten- Ivan Bloch, Albert Moll und Max Marcuse - der Begründer einer deutschen, seinerzeit auch international unerreichten Sexualwissenschaft. Er war darüber hinaus Jude und homosexuell veranlagt. Dies alles hat ihn zu einem der ersten prominenten Opfer der Nationalsozialisten werden lassen. Bereits 1930 mußte er in seinem Berliner Institut für Sexualwissenschaft, das er 1919 gegründet hatte, um seine Existenz und sein Leben fürchten. Der drohenden Ermordung entging er nur zufällig, weil er sich bei der Zerstörung des Instituts durch den SA-Mob auf einer Vortragsreise befand. Damit ging ein ruhmreiches Kapitel der deutschen Kulturwissenschaften dramatisch zu Ende. Es sollte bis in die jüngste Zeit dauern, daß man sich der Bedeutung Hirschfelds in ihrer ganzen Tragweite bewußt wurde. Sein erstes großes Hauptwerk verfolgt das Thema Homosexualität in all seinen Facetten. Zugrunde lagen Hirschfelds Ausführungen zahllose Fallstudien und Untersuchungen, die er nach standardisierten Mustern vornahm. In dem umfangreichen Band versuchte er, das Thema in seiner ganze Breite zu erfassen. Auch wenn die biologischen Ausführungen Hirschfelds heutzutage als veraltet gelten, so sind doch seine Analysen immer noch ausgesprochen lesenswert und berühren in ihrer Detailversessenheit- etwa, wenn Hirschfeld den Tascheninhalt des homosexuellen Mannes beschreibt oder die Eigenarten des Schwulenlebens in den südlichen Ländern, die Wohnungseinrichtung und Berufswahl der typischen lesbischen Frau etc. Mit diesen Beschreibungen ging allerdings auch eine Gefahr einher: Hirschfeld lieferte ungewollt den Nationalsozialisten gewissermaßen die Checklisten, mit denen sie dann, verstärkt nach dem Röhm-Putsch von 1934, die Verfolgung der homosexuellen Männer intensivieren konnten.

Continuing the tradition that has made it a leader in its field, this casebook uses problems to provide an overview of lawyers' professional responsibility. One of the most rapidly changing fields in American law, professional responsibility sees new issues, rules and cases each year, all of which are covered in this book. The authors have carefully designed this Thirteenth Edition to be familiar to long time users, and accessible to new ones. It continues its tradition of offering the most usable and up-to-date course materials to teach legal ethics and the law governing the practice of law. The new Thirteenth Edition provides resources to help law teachers address the many changes in the legal profession and professional responsibility law since the last edition in 2014. Among those changes are: ABA adoption of Model Rule 8.4(g) that forbids "harassment or discrimination by lawyers on the basis of race, sex, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status or socioeconomic status in conduct related to the practice of law." Efforts to expand the availability of legal services to poor and middle-income persons who do not now use lawyers. Changing methods of delivering legal services, both those used by traditional law firms and services proposed by non-traditional providers. Changes in discovery rules and other procedural requirements that create new lawyer obligations to opponents and the court, Efforts to simplify and clarify rules relating to lawyer marketing. Use of judicial ethics rules to define Constitutional due process requirements that lawyers may raise on behalf of their clients.
