Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A wonderful book...it should be read by anyone who has ever contemplated going to law school. Or anyone who has ever worried about being human." -The New York Times

It was a year of terrors and triumphs, of depressions and elations, of compulsive work, pitiless competition, and, finally, mass hysteria. It was Scott Turow's first year at the oldest, biggest, most esteemed center of legal education in the United States. Turow's experiences at Harvard Law School, where freshmen are dubbed One Ls, parallel those of first-year law students everywhere. His gripping account of this critical, formative year in the life of a lawyer is as suspenseful, said The New York Times, as "the most absorbing of thrillers."

Synopsis:

The #1 bestselling author of "Presumed Innocent" and "Innocent" shares the story of his turbulent first year at Harvard Law School.

Scott Turow is the international best-selling author of The Burden of Proof, Pleading Guilty, The Laws of Our Fathers, and Presumed Innocent, and the sequel, Innocent.
