    If I was independently wealthy, I would buy "The Happy Lawy

    If I was independently wealthy, I would buy "The Happy Lawyer" by Levit and Linder for every pre-law student that I've encountered in my career as a pre-law adviser.

    I love the fact that the authors spend a good portion in the beginning of the book talking about happiness and what makes people happy in life and in their careers. I think many people, whether they are planning on becoming lawyers or not, would find Chapter 2: Happiness: A Primer, and Chapter 4: The Happiness Toolbox, to be useful, helpful and enlightening. The first 4 chapters are a good primer for what's to come--tips and advice on how to be a happier and more successful law student and lawyer.

    It's been hard to find an interesting, practical, realistic book that is written in an engaging way that I can recommend to pre-law students. (So many books out there about lawyers and lawyering are dense, boring and/or terribly condescending.)

    After much searching, I think I've finally found the right book. Thank you, Professors Levit and Linder!

    Awesome book

    This book is research-based so it is authorititive, and it is written in a clear writing style and is enjoyable to read. A must for students contemplating law school, law students, lawyers and law firms who care about the working conditions of lawyers.
