Review: One L: The Turbulent True Story of a First Year at Harvard Law School

User Review  - Michael - Goodreads

The most impressive thing about this book is how self-aware Turow was able to be so soon after this intense first year in law school. I read it because I will soon be starting my first year in law school, and I think it has given me great insight into what to expect. Read full review
