LAW / Reference
A provocative, accessible, and cleverly illustrated guide to legal principles and practice, by a law instructor and internationally experienced attorney

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.

Vibeke Norgaard Martin is an attorney in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, where she works primarily in municipal law. She previously practiced commercial litigation at a major international law firm before turning to civil rights litigation. She has taught at UC Berkeley School of Law, clerked for the South African Constitutional Court, was a visiting scholar at the University of Pretoria, and worked for the Sierra Leone Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Matthew Frederick is an architect, urban designer, instructor of design and writing, and the creator of the acclaimed 101 Things I Learned® series. He lives in New York's Hudson Valley.
