Below are links to the books that I require and recommend for POLI:1120 Lawyers in the American Political System. Clicking on the cover images takes you to an edition on Amazon.com, but other editions or versions may be available there or from other places. I will provide more details on the books in class.
There are six required books. The first is a reference book, the next three are "how to" type books, and the last two are the stories of the person's experience as a first year law student.
There are three recommended books. The first is a reference book, the second is a book of a young lawyer's experiences, and the third is a book of short essays on the first year experiences of several lawyers.
