Law students today have a pretty good idea what to expect from the initial plunge into the law. Scott Turow's description of his first year at Harvard has become almost mandatory reading for anyone contemplating law school. But the education does not end after the first year. Facing two more years of grueling class work, mounting student loans, increasing pressure to stand out from the crowd, and the never-ending search for the perfect job, a second-year Tulane law student comes to realize that surviving the fall into the deep is no guarantee he will learn to swim, let alone come up for air.

About the Author:
Lawrence Dieker Jr. received his B.A. and M.A. from the Ohio State University. He graduated with honors from Tulane Law School. He practices law in Ohio.

From the Publisher:
There is a saying about law school that they scare you to death the first year, work you to death the second, and bore you to death the third. Law students today have a pretty good idea what to expect from the initial plunge into the law. Scott Turow's One L, describing his first year at Harvard, has become almost mandatory reading for anyone contemplating law school. And because that level of intensity is what so many expect, that is how the first year usually plays out, complete with ulcers, outlines, and relentless work. But the education does not end after the first year. Law school is a three-year course of study, and the first year often bears little resemblance to the final two. Facing two more years of grueling class work, mounting student loans, increasing pressure to stand out from the crowd, and the never-ending search for the perfect job, upper-class students come to realize that surviving the fall into the deep end is no guarantee they will learn to swim. Letters from Law School is about the second year of law school, after the cold shock of the plunge. This book describes the struggle to come up for air.
