Lawyerland: what lawyers talk about when they talk about lawFelhasználói ismertető - Book Verdict
In this quirky but oddly appealing look at the attitudes and perceptions of a variety of New York lawyers, chapters read like the dialog in a good legal novel. Law professor Joseph (St. John's Univ.) describes his work as "truthful" rather than "factual"; the candor requires that names, places, and incidents be masked. The chapters consist of dialogs with a variety of lawyers--criminal, personal injury, labor, and corporate--as well as judges. The style is free-form; the interviewer fades away as the lawyer's voice takes over in a near stream-of-consciousness monolog about law and lawyering. Readers of John Grisham novels may balk at the book's starkness and lack of movement, but those who enjoy Scott Turow may wish to give this work a try.--Patrick Petit, Catholic Univ. Law Lib., Washington, D.C.

I like reading books by lawyers. Lawrence Joseph was a private practice attorney and now is a professor in NYC. So far, this is a good read, and I find myself agreeing with many of his observations.
