Twenty Recommended Books for Law Students

This list is not a mandatory pre-reading list; we certainly do not expect you to read all 20 of
these books. However, the list contains some very good and very interesting books which we
feel will prepare you well for your first year of studying law. We believe that it would be
helpful to you to read one or more of these books.

Also, please remember that law is all around you, so you should always try to read a high
quality newspaper and watch and/or listen reputable news broadcasts.
