Aloha, All -
It's been a while since I've had time to post anything here. I thought I might post a note as to a new resource. It's . . .Con Law: Avoiding...or Beating...the Scam of the Century (A Real Student's Guide to Law School and the Legal Profession),
by Charles Cooper and Thane Messinger
Given how outrageously expensive everything related to school is, my coauthor (Charles) and I were lucky to get this priced at $2.99, which we hope sticks. And here's hoping this is a helpful boost to your otherwise precarious finances. (I also got the price lowered for Law School: Getting In, Getting Good, Getting the Gold,
which, part three, I hope helps as well.)
In short, Con Law
is about the realities of law school and the profession, by two law school graduates, practitioners, and academicians. While we have ourselves led charmed lives, we have also seen the darker side of the profession, which, over time, has caused us to reflect on legal education. Law School used to be an easy sale: spend three years, and a modest sum of money, and you were pretty much set. This is, of course, no longer true. But not many students are fully aware of the degree to which is is blatantly false. Thus, this book.
For those who are wavering about law school, these are crucial perspectives to consider. For those who are about to enter, the stakes are high. Very high. It is, if anything, even more important to lay out your law school "career" with a serious plan as to both how you will approach law school and how you will connect with, and convince, a future employer.
If anyone is willing to read this and provide a critique, and is otherwise reasonably impecunious (a word at least one of your first-year profs will spring on you), please send me an email, to firstname.lastname@example.org
, and I will buy you a copy myself. [Legal disclaimer: Limited time offer!]
