4 Books to Read if You Want to Go Into Law

4 Books to Read if You Want to Go Into Law
Posted By: Anica Oaks on April 04, 2022

The legal field has its fair share of challenges and triumphs. Though it's a respected field, it's also known as one with an extremely high rate of burnout. Therefore, if you decide to go into the legal field, it's best to know what you're getting yourself into. Once you're well-informed, it's much easier to make a sound decision. Consider some of the best books to read if you'd like to enter the legal field.

Storytelling for Lawyers by Philip N. Meyer



While there are different types of law you can practice, all lawyers need to be good storytellers. To know how to adequately craft a narrative that's both persuasive and effective isn't the easiest skill. This book teaches you how to master the art of storytelling that's unique to your field. When you're hired by a firm like the Brooks Law Group, you'll need to pull from this book to develop the winning case.

The Little Black Book of Lawyer's Wisdom by Tony Lyons



This book is comprised of words of wisdom from a myriad of judges, lawyers, and former political figures. Within the legal field, chances are you'll come across some cases that challenge your morals, make you question humanity, and more.



However, with these words of wisdom, you'll learn that you're not alone in what will eventually prove to be a complicated quest for equality.

Law School Confidential by Robert H. Miller



Before you enter the legal field, you'll have to go to law school. Law school is its own experience that you'll want to be prepared for. This book allows you to learn what a lot of law school graduates wished they knew before they started their own journey. You'll learn details about how to manage the financial aid process, the details behind submitting applications, and how to implement practical exam strategies.

The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene



As a lawyer, you'll have to utilize a number of strategies to get the results you desire. Whether you're trying to persuade the judge in the courtroom or question a witness on the stand, the tactics in the 48 laws of power can help you gain control, build your confidence and assist you in strategizing for the win.

Truthfully, it's pretty easy to find countless books on the legal field. You can read, talk to friends who are lawyers, and gather as much information as possible. However, there's nothing quite like diving in and doing the work. When you're getting the actual experience, you'll be able to see how rewarding a career in law can be.
