Margaret KlawJoin Monica and Caroline this week on Writers' Voices for an inside look at the changing definition of family from a legal perspective.  Filled with interesting case histories and personal insight, "Keeping It Civil: The Case of the Pre-Nup and The Porsche & Other True Accounts from the Files of A Family Lawyer" describes the impact on real people from such soietal hot-button issues as divoce, custody, marriage equality and reproductive technology.

Family law is not a high-profile specialty, yet it is an area where attorneys can have real impact on the lives of their clients. In "Keeping It Civil,"  Klaw takes us inside the courtroom and discusses strategy, how attorneys work with opposing counsel, and how to determine the best approach for each case. Would-be attorneys can learn a lot about their future career from this book, but anyone with an interest in the law will find it fascinating.  "Keeping It Civil" is published by Algonquin Books.
