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 law school life, 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.
