Hosted by criminal defense lawyer Elizabeth Kelley, AuthorChats features in-depth interviews with writers about their recent works.  In this episode, she talks with Andrea D. Lyon, Dean of Valparaiso University School of Law, about her latest book The Feminine Sixth: Women for the Defense.  Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking, writes this about The Feminine Sixth:  "Andrea Lyon has done it again.  This time, she invites readers into the fascinating lives and work of nine women who have made careers for themselves as criminal defense lawyers, as well as her own life and work.  This raw and honest window into the diverse and growing ranks of women who chose the noble path of standing beside and defending those accused of a crime is a very spocial book indeed.  The challenges of service as a criminal defense lawyer are formindable.  In The Feminine Sixth: Women for the Defense, Andrea tells the story of these incredible defense lawyers with the insight and sensitivity that one has come to expect from this towering figure in the profession." http://www.linkedin.com/pub/elizabeth-kelley/30/104/141
