Nice Shout-Out to The “Companion Text” to Law School

The "Companion Text" to Law SchoolMy law school prep book, 1L of a Ride, gets a lot more attention, but my book written for the loved ones of law students–The “Companion Text” to Law School: Understanding and Surviving Life with a Law Student (West 2012)–got a nice shout-out on Paul Caron’s popular TaxProf blog.

Thanks to Al Sturgeon, Dean of Students at Pepperdine Law, for  his insightful take on my chapter called Eight Things to NEVER Say to a Law Student, which include:

  1. “Don’t Worry, You’ll Do Fine”
  2. “Maybe You Weren’t Meant to Be in Law School”
  3. “Remember, It’s Only a Test”
  4. “Is That the Best You Could Do?”
  5. “Do You Really Have to Work on That Tonight?”
  6. “What Kind of Lawyer Do You Want to Be?”
  7. “Do You Have a Job Yet?”
  8. “Have You Heard the One About the Lawyer, the Shark, and the Pornographer?”

If you’re attending or planning to attend law school and want your loved ones to understand your crazy, stressful journey, check out The “Companion Text” to Law School.  Here’s the Table of Contents.
