30 Lawyers, 30 Books: Kim McLane Wardlaw
Kim McLane Wardlaw
Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton
Kim McLane Wardlaw is a judge on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals at San Francisco. A former partner at O’Melveny & Myers, Wardlaw served on the transition teams of President Bill Clinton and Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan.
“Cry, the Beloved Country, a book about apartheid, reminds us of the importance of a neutral judicial system in remedying inequities. Its inspiring theme of hope in the face of injustice echoes an earlier American novel, The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck’s great book about a family’s struggle to survive in Depression-era America.”
