Law Student Essentials: Books Every Law Student Should Read

Law Student Must Have: Getting to Maybe

If you read my blog, you know I write a lot about Getting to Maybe. That’s because I like to joke that this book saved my 1L life. As a first-generation professional and lawyer, I had no idea how to write a law school exam. And I’m so glad someone turned me on to this resource. It might not have actually saved my life, but it sure did save my GPA!

And this is at the very top of my list of best books for prelaw students. Future law students check out Getting to Maybe, so you can spend your summer doing very light pre-1L summer prep and relaxing!

Law Student Essential: Read for Fun

Yes. My list of books every law student should read is noticeably short. That’s because I think the most important thing you can do in law school is to develop healthy outlets. One of my healthy outlets was reading for pleasure, which I did every night before bed to help me fall asleep. If you are like, then you’ll love a Kindle!
