So there are some things I’ve posted here on Wanna Be Lawyer that I’ve really felt could and have helped people. Things like my post on ranking law schools your own way. Well I’ve spent the past few weeks working on a little Kindle book that takes some of the more highly viewed posts here on Wanna Be Lawyer and compiles them and adds a good deal of content too. You can find the Kindle book here.
My main goal when writing it was to make something that provided some contrast to all of the other law school books out there, particularly some of them that I’ve reviewed here on the blog. I love the ones I read before getting to law school. However, it always hit me as odd that everyone writing a law school book was doing so after a substantial break from actual law school. Sure, there’s great advice on taking exams in those other law school books, but none of them capture the struggle and daily stress that you suffer as a law student.
By writing this short(because 1Ls don’t have tons of free time) Kindle edition I was really trying to capture a lot of the advice I wish I had received before I got to law school. I hope you’ll find it informative and I went out of my way to make it not overly verbose. You do enough reading in law school as it is, so why add to that more than is necessary?
I’ll be making the book free this weekend to encourage lots of you to check it out. Please leave a review and remember I tried to keep it short for a reason. It’s meant to be a supplement of the blog here and vice versa. My hope is people will use both in tandem.
