Summary

This is a friendly and helpful companion for clinical students and new lawyers as they venture forth. Among its topics are solving problems, telling stories, coping with lies and mistakes, interviewing and counseling clients, investigating and negotiating cases, writing legal memos, making oral arguments and trying lawsuits. Kenney Hegland introduced many to legal education with The Study and Practice of Law in a Nutshell. Paul Bennett is a well known clinician. There are many fine books focusing on specific lawyering skills; this one is unique: it covers, in 115 pages, a lot of them. It's a wonderful review of the trees and a needed overview of the forest. It's quite readable: short and happy, quick and funny. Dollars to donuts, this book will be your students' favorite, the one they will take with them. You will be even more popular.
