Beyond One L: Stories About Finding Meaning and Making a Difference in Law
"I have always been a believer in the power of narrative and Beyond One L did not disappoint! I had a hard time putting this book down. I loved the way the authors framed their stories to illustrate how the first year of law school was instrumental in forming their personal or professional identities. I laughed at some of the stories and cried at others. I was inspired by the "kaleidoscope of experiences" that were shared. I would highly recommend this book, particularly if you have gone to law school, are planning to go to law school, or just want to read a meaningful book." — Christine Coughlin, Professor of Legal Analysis, Writing, and Research, Wake Forest University School of Law
"Law students and lawyers all too quickly forget why they went to law school. Inside each attorney is some passion that does not involve billing hours. Beyond One L is a reminder to find that passion. From stories of questioning the Torah, to a federal judge’s journey through racial segregation, to a professor’s admission during his 1L year at HLS that “I’m not sure exactly where I’m lost...but I am”, I was reminded of the real world of law. Law school can be funny, affirming and sometimes even enjoyable. The profession is a challenge, but clients are inspiring, the justice system valuable and law school provides lifelong advice like “never turn down free food,” “do not sleep with that person.” Regardless of where you are on your legal path- just considering law school or Buddhist monk-this collection of stories will bring a smile to your face and may justrekindle that passion."— Judge Stephen Bough
