Amann on Cecelia Goetz, Woman at Nuremberg

Cecelia Goetz, Woman at Nuremberg has just been posted by  Diane Marie Amann, University of California, Davis - School of Law.  The essay is forthcoming in the International Criminal Law Review.  Here's the abstract:
Cecilia Goetz at Nuremberg
Among the many women who played a role in the post-World War II trials of former Nazis and Nazi collaborators was a 30-year-old American, Cecelia Goetz. This essay, part of ongoing research on women at Nuremberg, to be published in “Women and International Criminal Law,” a forthcoming special issue of the International Criminal Law Review, discusses Goetz. Included are not only details on how and why she became a prosecutor in the Krupp trial at Nuremberg, but also a life story marked by many “first woman” chapters, on law review, at the Department of Justice, and, after Nuremberg, in the federal judiciary.
