Book Description

June 1 2000 1889057061 978-1889057064
Law school has the reputation of being one of the hardest academic programs. It is a reputation well earned. However, Law School Basics is chock-full of insights and strategies that will prepare you well and give you a head start on the competition.

Law School Basics presents a thorough overview of law school, legal reasoning, and legal writing. It was written for those who are considering law school; for those who are about to start law school; and for those who are interested in knowing more about lawyering and the legal process.

Law School Basics was written with one overriding goal: to enlighten you about everything the author wishes he had known before starting law school.

1.0 out of 5 stars Trash Jan. 11 2004

Format:Paperback
Buyer Beware! This book has nothing to do with reality let alone legal reasoning. As a partner at a major law firm, I would urge potentially interested readers to stay clear of this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny -and- useful! July 14 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is worth having simply so you can quote real opinions written in the style of Genesis or Mark Twain. It also points out amusing cases -- talking cats leap to mind -- that might otherwise be buried by their more serious brethren. The chapters on how the court systems work, what memoranda should look like, and what certain legal terms mean are easy to understand, and it's useful to have them all in one place. I didn't care for the many pages on why law school is run the way it is, but you might be interested. Overall, it's a practical handbook and a great reminder that law is not as serious a business as everyone seems to think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a pre-law student Oct. 21 2010
By Butterfly Poet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I sent this book to my 17 yr old granddaughter who has been dreaming about being a lawyer for some years but was also interested in psycology. Now that she's at the age of trying to decide what college to go to she couldn't make up her mind which to major in but when she started reading this book, she became convinced to go into law. She was very impressed by the why it answered all her questions and doubts.
1.0 out of 5 stars Law school: how I made it through without being noticed. Nov. 25 2013
By Helmuth Hack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is absolutely worthless for insights on Law itself. Instead, it focuses on the authors self indulgence, naivity of the world as he wanders through the system. I'd be curious as to how he is doing as an attorney?
