"A wonderful book...it should be read by anyone who has ever contemplated going to law school. Or anyone who has ever worried about being human."—The New York Times

It was a year of terrors and triumphs, of depressions and elations, of compulsive work, pitiless competition, and, finally, mass hysteria. It was Scott Turow's first year at the oldest, biggest, most esteemed center of legal education in the United States. Turow's experiences at Harvard Law School, where freshmen are dubbed One Ls, parallel those of first-year law students everywhere. His gripping account of this critical, formative year in the life of a lawyer is as suspenseful, said The New York Times, as "the most absorbing of thrillers."

About the Author:

Scott Turow is the author of over ten internationally bestselling books, including IdenticalLimitationsOrdinary Heroes, Ultimate Punishment, and Reversible Errors. He lives in Chicago, where he is a partner at a law firm and teaches fiction writing at Northwestern University.

From AudioFile:

Before the general public discovered Scott Turow's novels, law students knew him for One L. Published while he was still attending Harvard Law School, it tells the story of his first year (with names changed to protect privacy). Holter Graham reads the memoir with a youthful voice that captures all the wonder, surprise, and indignation that the naïve Turow experienced in 1975-76. Turow's writing reveals self-deprecating humor, for example, his comment that a prof's brief "resembled the brief I had written only in that it was written on paper." We hear Turow's older, more jaded, and perhaps wiser voice as he introduces the 1977 book and closes it with comments and an interview.
