Great Advice/Typical Advice

Though the author seems narcissistic at times, his advice is invaluable. He honestly explains what a legal career encompasses. Further, he goes on to discuss the choice between law and business.

Despite its title, a book for people considering law school, not for practicing attorneys

This book contained a lot of information that I wish I had known before I invested in law school. But, as a guide for those of us who already have the degree, it's pretty worthless. I gave it 4 stars because I recommend it to everyone who tells me that they plan to attend law school.

Targeted, practical advice

I started considering a career in law a year ago and spoke with a range of people including friends pursuing their JD, family lawyer friends, and mentors at work. I also attended a few info sessions and read books similar to this one, but they failed to clearly describe the path from applications to graduation and beyond with the right amount of detail. This is a great book that's straight forward and well written. The author offers practical advice on relevant issues/concerns whether you're an undergrad or have a few years of experience like myself. While One L is an entertaining read, it fails to touch on experiences after graduation-this is where this book makes its name. A random family friend gave me a copy of the book over the holiday. I suggest that anyone exploring a law school and a career in law reads Cannon's advice. Check out the sections on "the big lie," life at large firms and options within the government.
