I enjoyed One L as well, but more as a story than an actual account of what my law school experience might be.

Oh, and A Civil Action as well. Fiancee is a 3L and it was required reading at her school. Pretty interesting stuff. Too bad Travolta and company ruined it in the movie version.

Is A Civil Action fiction?  Non-Fiction?  How-To?

Non-fiction book by a Boston reporter on an actual class action lawsuit brought against manufacturing companies that were dumping waste in a river. Ended up creating a cancer cluster and a host of other problems. The book follows the civil case from start to finish through interviews with the participants on all sides.

In the end, the EPA prosecuted the case criminally as well.

Hmm.  Maybe I should look into that.
