The Lawyer Myth · A Defense of the American Legal Profession
By Rennard Strickland and Frank T. Read

“When you mentioned to family or friends that you were considering becoming a lawyer, you probably faced skepticism, if not serious criticism… You are undoubtedly asking yourself if three or four years of a rigorous and costly legal education is really worth the candle. For you … we add these final comments. We hope that they will reassure you, as well as your friends and family, that it is possible, as Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. proclaimed, ‘to live greatly in the law.’”

“An enlightening, convincing refutation of the myriad myths and misconceptions about lawyers and the legal system … highly readable and well–reasoned.”
