Overview

Eighteen lawyers share the stories of their first year of practice, revealing both the challenges and rewards of the day-to-day grind of a novice attorney. Read about a corporate lawyer's fight to maintain his concentration between snatches of sleep on his office floor and about a defense lawyer's attempt to salvage justice for a small-town client who may have been the fall guy for some wily prosecutors. One young attorney recounts how a lunchtime encounter with a birthing sheep had an unexpected effect on his case. Full of humor and insight, these memoirs go beyond the bounds of the courtroom and explore the life lessons learned during the first year of practice.
