We are very grateful to Christopher W. Schmidt, Chicago-Kent Law and the American Bar Foundation, for his excellent posts as a guest blogger this month. He started with his recently published book, The Sit-Ins: Protest and Legal Change in the Civil Rights Era, and proceeded to Op-Ed writing and some advice from his editing of Law & Social Inquiry, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Bar Foundation. Links to all of them are below. Thanks so much, Chris!
