Books about the actual job of an attorney.
« on: July 18, 2005, 11:31:49 AM »
I wonder if anyone has any suggestions for a good book about the different career choices a law school graduate has.  A book that describes the different directions one can go in the field of law or just a book that captures what life as an attorney will be like.

This isn't a book, but I would suggest looking at the Occupational Outlook handbook, a federal resource guide which profiles hundreds of different careers. It is available online.

Call some firms and see if they will allow you to shadow an attorney for a day or two.  Someone, I'm sure, will let you watch them at work.
