This might be the most useful book law students ever read. Not because it contains the details of case law, but because it teaches them how to think like a lawyer. From the fundamentals of effective argument to the principles, structures, and assumptions underlying our legal system, 101 Things I Learned in Law School makes the impenetrable clear and the complex understandable. Illustrated lessons summarize landmark cases and illuminate a fascinating range of questions, including-
.What is the difference between honesty and truthfulness?
.Why is circumstantial evidence often better than direct evidence?
.How does one find the proper sources to substantiate a legal argument?
.Why do states deliberately pass unconstitutional laws?
.How can testimony from a hostile witness be helpful?
Written by an internationally experienced attorney and law instructor, 101 Things I Learned in Law School is a concise, highly readable resource for law students, graduates, professionals, and anyone else fascinated--or confused--by our legal system.
