That depends- who is your favorite author?  ;)


They say that you can't really prepare for law school.  That being said, I really enjoyed Law School Confidential, Lawyer Boy,and Barman: Ping Pong, Pathos, and Passing the Bar.  I hated Planet Law School II.

Those books are generally not great preparation, but I'm glad you liked them.

I suggest:

Listening to oral arguments on Oyez
A Civil Action for a good Civ Pro primer
Getting to Maybe

That's it.  Anything more would be overkill.  Please, please, please don't delve into any BLL.  You don't understand poo, and you can't teach it to yourself in LS fashion.
