Book Review: Introduction to the Study and Practice of Law

As part of her (I think her; so hard to keep track of genders sometimes) pre-law reading, CM at Magic Cookie
reviews Introduction to the Study and Practice of Law, a Nutshell book by Professor Kenney Hegland. The review follows CM's previous notes about OneL and includes brief comments about Law School Confidential, as well. CM writes:

This was the best of the three, although not as widely known. Unlike the other books, this one does not focus solely on what law school will be like. Instead, Hegland tries to explain the fundamentals of studying law: how to read and understand a case, how a trial works, how to write effectively.

It sounds like the book is not just intended for pre-law preparation, but contains information that law students and graduates might find helpful, as well.

Oh, and for you pre-law students who think you might not want to do any law-related reading prior to law school, you're in good company.
