In this episode, Professor Renee Knake speaks by phone with Podcast Editors, Adri Langemeier and Robert Cunningham, to discuss her forthcoming book, Shortlisted: Women in the Shadows of the Supreme Court, which is available May 12th on Amazon.
Shortlisted tells the incredible stories of nine women appearing on Presidential shortlists prior to Sandra Day O’Connor’s nomination. We discuss the research that went into writing the book, as well as some of the findings. Finally, Professor Knake talks with us about how we can overcome the challenges still faced by women in the legal field today.
