NACDL News: NACDL Press to Publish Book by Defense Attorney Andrea D. Lyon

On March 28, 2016, NACDL announced that its publishing unit, NACDL Press, will publish a groundbreaking work on women in criminal defense by leading criminal defense attorney, legal scholar, Dean and Professor of Law at Valparaiso University School of Law, and decades-long NACDL member Andrea D. Lyon. The book is expected to be released in 2017 and will be titled “The Feminine Sixth: Women for the Defense.” In this work, Ms. Lyon will tell the stories of women lawyers who are in criminal defense — public and private — but are not necessarily on the speakers’ circuit or otherwise well known.
