Decades after Scott Turow entered law school comes an all new unabridged production of this classic with a special introduction by and interview with the author
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.
Each September, a new crop of students enter Harvard Law School to begin an intense, often grueling, sometimes harrowing year of introduction to the law. Will the One L's survive? Will they excel? Will they make the Law Review, the outward and visible sign of success in this ultra-competitive microcosm.
With remarkable insight into both his fellow students and himself, Turow leads us through the ups and downs, the small triumphs and tragedies of the year, in an absorbing and thought-provoking narrative that teaches the listener not only about law school and the law but also about the human beings who make them what they are.
"[ One L] 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)

Insight into Harvard Law School
An interesting read for everybody who wants to learn more about US Law Schools and how law is taught there. Even though the book was published 30 years ago, the book provides valuable insights into the lives, ambitions and failures of first year law students. A European law student who applies for an LLM at a US law school may find this book a useful help to understand the American students in his or her classes.
