Literature for Law Students – Summer’s Subject

Welcome to the summer! It’s a busy time here at the Gould Law Library. We’re getting ready for orientation for our new 1Ls and looking forward to welcoming all of our students to the library in the Fall with legal research instruction and library services that will help all of you succeed in law school.

No matter where you are in your legal education and preparation for entry to the bar, you may be curious about what your future career in the law has in store for you. Here are two fairly new, very popular books that provide insight on what to expect in your career:

Author:                        Richard Susskind
Call Number:              K120 .S87 2013
Publication Date:      2013

Author:                           Karen Thalacker
Call Number:                KF300 .T48 2009
Publication Date:        2009


Tomorrow’s Lawyers has been especially well-received and is recommended by many. After you’ve read it, come by and ask us what we think about the book, or talk to our Dean and our faculty about it. You’ll find that many of us have read it, too.

We’ll post again soon with some more interesting reads about the study and the practice of law.

In the meantime, keep calm and read on.
