Becoming a lawyer is a process, not an event [Section 5 of 5]

By: Paul Ebeltoft

A Suggested Reading List
For People Who Would Like To Become A Lawyer

"What will help prepare us for law school?" "What are the skills that may make a good lawyer great?" "What is it like to be a lawyer?" We lawyers have all had these questions asked of us. I rely on others to begin to answer them.

Due to space limitations in this column, I have divided 25 recommended readings and film suggestions into sections. This is the fifth of five. Look for the earlier sections in the archives to the left for those you may have missed.

I welcome suggestions and comments.
