Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robson tackles controversial legal questions, including the treatment of lesbian criminal defendants; lesbianism and violence; the courts' tendency to resort to stereotypes, such as "the good lesbian" and "the bad lesbian"; the numerous debates enveloping same-sex marriage; and the outcome of child custody cases involving lesbians. She also repudiates the recent habit of legal theorists to address lesbians as "alternative family."

Book News Annotation:

Presents 13 of the author's essays which develop a lesbian legal theory that would welcome Sappho or any of her modern incarnations to the legal arena. Paper topics include lesbians and criminal justice, the feminist jurisprudence question, the codifications of lesbian relationships, the third sex and child custody, and teaching lesbian sexuality in the law school classroom. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In Sappho Goes to Law School Ruthann Robson weaves together concepts taken from traditional legal theory, postmodernism, feminist theory, and queer theory, as well as her own personal experience in the courtroom and classroom, to take stock of the complexities of lesbian identity and the often detrimental ways in which legal scholarship approaches lesbianism.
