Teaching Resources

Using Feminist Judgments in the classroom can be an enriching way to teach feminist legal theory, CRT, Queer theory and social justice and show students concretely how to make social justice arguments.

How to gain access to the complete e-book and individual chapters for course use on Cambridge Core

  1. To request access to the e-books, contact your university or law school collection development librarian and ask the librarian to request access from their Cambridge sales representative.
  2. Once the title has been acquired by your university or law school library, that library will have perpetual access to the e-book as well as “unlimited concurrency,” which means that an unlimited number of individuals affiliated with your institution can access the book at the same time. Each individual chapter will have an individual DOI, or permalink, on Cambridge Core so professors can direct students via a course webpage or syllabus to specific chapters with hyperlinks. So, you can assign individual chapters to students, who can then simply “borrow” and download the chapter from your library.
  3. The complete e-book and the linked chapters can be read on laptop, notebook, or smartphone. In addition, students may download the material as long as they are not distributing the downloaded materials to others not covered by the institutional membership.
