    One L, Scott Turow's journal of his first year at law school and a best seller when it was first published in 1977, has gone on to become a virtual bible for prospective law students. Not only does it introduce with remarkable clarity the ideas and issues that are the stuff of legal education; it also brings alive the anxiety and competitiveness, with others and, even more, with oneself, that set the tone in this crucible of character building.

    william c thill says: "A well-told and well-written account"
    "Still a great choice 30 years later!"
    Overall

    This audiobook describes Scott Turow's first year at Harvard Law in the 1970s. The first person perspective kept my attention. He candidly describes elitist professors, competitive fellow students, the detrimental effect on his marriage and the stress all 1Ls seem to endure. Any negativity is balanced by his underlying respect for the law, education and the process. The narrator is very good. I especially admired how adept he was at switching to different accents to portray different characters. This was a great choice for my commute as a 1L. It's remarkable how little legal education has changed in 30 years--many of his experiences are similar to my own. Several of his anecdotes even made me laugh out loud. I wish it hadn't ended...
