Most fun-to-read law students' memoirs?

Postby alpinespring » Fri Mar 10, 2017 7:21 pm

Recently picked up "Supreme Ambitions" by David Lat (founder of Above the law) and I think it's the best "memoir" about federal clerkship written from an ex-clerk's point of view.

Are there any other books (besides "1L" by Scott Turow) you'd recommend to learn more about top-law-schools.com, BigLaw life, etc?

Thanks in advance

I'm actually interested in what people suggest as well.

Although this isn't a book, the documetary "A Lawyer Walks Into a Bar" is actually pretty interesting.

The Bible.

Particularly the Book of Job. Except maybe the part at the very end.
