Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Should one go to law school? How does one prepare, find the right school, and gain admission? Is the first year as grueling as it is reputed to be? What are classes really like? Should successful graduates enroll in a bar exam prep course, and what are the differences among states' bar exams? This lively career guide, compiled by the editors of JD Jungle magazine and www.jdjungle. com, provides answers to these and many other questions about law and law schools. Through lively, factual, and anecdotal narratives, law school faculty, third-year law students, and practicing attorneys discuss the advantages of a law degree and step-by-step milestones in law school education. There are also firsthand accounts of preparing for and taking the bar exam. An inspirational final chapter consists of recent interviews with five high-profile litigators and a Supreme Court justice, who speak candidly about law school, attorneys, and their own contributions. Online and print resources are appended. This helpful survival guide should be read cover to cover by anyone considering law school. For all career collections.-Stanley P. Hodge, formerly with Ball State Univ. Lib., Muncie, IN Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
