30 lawyers 30 books

August 1st, 2011 No comments

There’s still a little bit of summer left so you have time for some summer reading. The ABA Journal cover story for this month is 30 Lawyers 30 Books. Here’s a direct link to the list of books. The Journal asked 30 top lawyers to recommend a book that other lawyers should read. You’ll find a lot of good selections in the last.

The University of Washington law library has created a handy list of all the books on WorldCat so you can find them quickly in your library.

Summer Reading for New Law Students

lawbooksWe’re sometimes asked to recommend books for new students to read before they start law school. I personally would advise you to relax and read something fun while you still can, but we know you’re anxious to get started. We have a list of books for new students on our webpage. It’s a long list so don’t feel you have to read them all. Just pick one!

PrawfsBlawg has a recent post on books for rising 1Ls (or as we usually say at Widener, first years). Besides the books in the initial post there are some great suggestions in the comments.
