Inhaltsangabe: While popular TV shows such as Law & Order and bestselling novels such as Presumed Innocent present a sexy, seductive portrayal of the law profession, Richard Moll offers a rare -- and realistic-- inside look at the law and the men and women who practice it.
In a book that's perfect for prospective law school students and citizens interested in a deeper look at the legal system, Richard Moll investigates the people behind the personas: practicing lawyers, would-be lawyers, and ex-lawyers through dynamic interviews.
The differences between public perceptions and private reality emerge when he examines what lured each one of them to their particular type of practice; what they actually do; and what being a lawyer has done to them.
From Library Journal:
The diversity of legal careers is a ripe topic for study, but Moll provides only a tedious series of interviews heavy on style but short on insight. Interesting tidbits abound, yet few readers will plow through the entire text. Moll acknowledges that his effort is strictly anecdotal, but even his "conclusions" are mere highlights with little synthesis or fresh perspective. Moreover, most interviewees were safely employed or well along in pursuit of their goals. Missing are beleagured lawyers with struggling practices or tortuous jobs. Aspiring lawyers may enjoy this book, but they also will be misled. Deborah L. Arron's Running from the Law (Niche Pr., 1989), for example, offers complementary views from malcontent attorneys. For larger collections. --Kenneth D. Crews, Graduate Sch. of Library & Information Science, UCLA
