    For those obsessed with Law & Order

    Law 101, overall was both entertaining as well as informational. Each chapter explains in depth different forms of law including contract law, tort law, criminal law and property law. Within these chapters the author explains the basic rules that are generally applied as well as the thinking process that lawyers actually experience from case to case. Themes throughout this book are primarily focused on the process of litigation (process in court) and problem solving skills that apply to judges and lawyers a like, making every case as fair as possible. Most of the cases presented in the book are well known, making it easier for the reader to connect to them like the famous Mcdonald's case where the woman won $480,000 after receiving third degree burns. The book was well written and easy to understand, Feinman wrote it all as if they were all short stories, like mini episodes of Law & Order but with more explanation. Shortly after reading the first chapter I was skeptical about if I had chosen the wrong book, but trust me once getting past the first chapter you're hooked. Anyone who is obsessed with Law & Order, aspires to be a law student, or just wants a better grasp on the American legal system should definitely read this book. By going into depth on several public and private cases, it will keep your interest while elaborating the type of law you're trying to comprehend.

    Let me start out by saying that I never had a particular interest in Law before reading this book. If anything, I imagined the subject matter to be boring. With that said I have five words: I LOVE THIS BOOK! It is so well written and interesting. It really made me understand the basics of law, and more importantly, it made me understand how legal theory "works". It turned me into a "law-lover" because I now understand what is at stake, when laws are written and interpreted. With this book YOU WILL LEARN SO MUCH!
