3. Plain English for Lawyers (2019)

Best Lawyer Books: The Ultimate CollectionPlain English for Lawyers has been a favorite of law students, legal writing teachers, lawyers, and judges for almost 40 years.

Consider this book your textbook to getting through “4L,” your first year as a lawyer in the real world. Inside, you’ll find a no-nonsense guide to workplace etiquette, navigating relationships with your superiors, researching like a champion, drafting impressive memos, moving on from your mistakes and how to handle your workload without This is the book in which Michael Connelly introduced Michael Haller, a lawyer who works out of an “office” in the back seat of his Lincoln Town Car as he navigates the various courtrooms that dot Los Angeles County. Legal knowledge doesn’t always just come from case studies, textbooks, and lectures. Sometimes it comes from books. We reached out to industry experts, lawyers and attornies to find their suggestions of the best books every lawyer should read. These books exist in the same world as Connelly’s popular Harry Bosch series. Not only so, but Bosch happens to be Mickey’s half-brother and makes appearances in the Mickey Haller books (and vice versa). The Lincoln Lawyer Books in Order. This series first landed on my radar when I saw the film adaptation of the first book. Books shelved as lawyer: Sustained by Emma Chase, Something About You by Julie James, Egomaniac by Vi Keeland, Reasonable Doubt: Volume 1 by Whitney G.,

We highly recommend you to buy all paper or e-books in a legal way, for example, on Amazon. But sometimes it might be a need to dig deeper beyond the shiny book cover.

Once again, we do not host any illegal or copyrighted files, but simply give our visitors a choice and hope they will make a wise decision.
