Widener faculty recommend their favorite law books

Back in August I covered 30 Lawyers 30 Books an ABA Journal article on book recommendations for lawyers. Now Widener law professor Jules Epstein has enlisted his colleagues to publish a similar book recommendation list. If we have the book in the law library I’ve linked to our catalog, if not I’ve linked to Google Books. For more information on the project see the Widener Law website.
