International Acclaim for Law School Professor's Book

A forthcoming book co-edited by Professor Peter Robson of the School of Law has been hailed as 'an unusually important book' and a 'distinguished contribution to scholarship on law and popular culture' (Austin Sarat, Amherst College).  Described as 'the first transnational, empirical look at ethnicity, gender and diversity on legally themed television shows', Ethnicity, Gender and Diversity: Law and Justice on TV, which will be published in December 2018 by Rowman & Littlefield, is co-edited with Professor Jennifer L. Schultz of the University of Manitoba, and has already attracted praise from international reviewers, with one praising it as a 'rare and welcome empirical contribution' (Michael Asimow, Stanford Law School) and another as a 'path-breaking international study' (Richard Sherwin, New York Law School). Professor Robson is not only a co-editor but also a contributor to the book.
