Reading Recs for Prospective Students

Professor Gordon Smith recently commented on a number of books frequently recommended for prospective law students, including his number one recommendation:

But one book on Harvard's list stands out above all others in my memory. It is a book about lawyers, legal strategy, and the power of law to change the world. It was recommended to me by a professor at Yale, and if I could choose only one book to recommend to prospective law students, this would be the one: Richard Kluger, Simple Justice.

In the comments and trackbacks there you'll find more discussion and recommendations — plenty of possibilities to fill the rest of your summer if you're waiting to start school or just considering whether to take the plunge for the LSAT.

Whoops! Good call, CM! I added the link in my head, but I guess that's not very helpful for anyone else. It's there for real link now...
