This interview is well worth listening to: http://lawanddisorder.org/2013/12/law-and-disorder-december-30-2013/ Holly Maguigan is a law professor at NYU who has experience in criminal defense going back to the 1970s. Around the 17:30 point at this interview she is asked if she had developed any specialty in her practice. She responds by telling a story about her first case defending a woman who killed a man in self-defense, and spoke of how that case led to her specializing in defending women who kill men. (the whole interview is great – she is an excellent storyteller)
