Lawyer Presidents

Twenty-five presidents have also been lawyers, from a wide variety of practices. To learn more, take a look at a book from the ABA, America's Lawyer-Presidents: From Law Office to Oval Office, KF353 .A46 2004 at Good Reads. (The Good Reads collection is in the wooden bookcases near the student lounge.)
America's Lawyer-Presidents, which is the work of an impressive assembly of respected scholars, is lucid, informative, and highly engaging. The book provides intriguing biographical perspectives on the professional lives of a number of our most influential citizens, and also demonstrates yet again the profound relationship between the development of American law and our democracy. -- Scott Turow
