Many of our incoming first year students have requested suggestions for summer reading that would help prepare them for law school this fall. It is that very enthusiasm and interest in the law that makes the first year of law school so exciting, and we look forward to sharing that enthusiasm with you. We have listed below a collection of books on the profession, jurisprudence, legal history and legal writing that may be of interest to you as you begin to think about the study of law. None of these books contains the “key” to success in your first year of law school. We offer most merely as suggestions for summer reading about law-related topics.
