Kudos to Jaya

Proud to report that Refugee Roulette: Disparities in Asylum Adjudication and Proposals for Reform (2009), coauthored by IntLawGrrls' own Jaya Ramji-Nogales (left), is the subject of the lead book review in the latest edition of the prestigious British journal, The Modern Law Review.
Reviewer Mike Sanderson (right), Kosovo-based Legal Consultant to the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, sets out a superb account of the empirical research by Jaya and her coauthors, Andrew I. Schoenholtz and Philip G. Schrag. Sanderson's evaluation of the book, on which we've posted here, is nothing short of gushing. In the fashion of movie advertisements, here're a few snippets:
... I cannot recall another occasion where an academic work has been so widely trailed, at least in my own area of refugee and asylum law. There is good reason for this. ...
...
... truly eye-popping ...
... exciting ...
... Ramji-Nogales, Schoenholtz and Schrag seem to be stones that have rubbed each other smooth. Their prose is beautifully clear throughout. ...
... it is excellent value and deserves to be widely purchased and read. ...
Agreed!

Congrats to you Jaya! I've learned so much just from reading your posts, and I'm not at all surprised that your book would prove equally lucid and compelling.
