When you're ready for some super tips try the top-ten lists from our field. The American Bar Association provides plenty of list-centric articles in their many publications like, Top 10 Apps for the Productive Lawyer (Nolo's Plain English Dictionary is second on the list, and it's free), 100 best blawgs, or the top 25 legal movies (spoiler-alert: Miracle on 34th Street comes in at #25). Washington weighs in with the Top Ten Tips for Easing the Character and Fitness Review (tip #1 – apply early). Besides webpages there are even a few books in the game – your very own reference office has a copy of A Book of Legal Lists, Bernard Schwartz's compilation of his personal favorites, from justices to judgments, with a bit of trivia added in for your education. Who was the first justice to wear trousers? (I know what you're thinking - if not trousers, then what were they wearing? Come by the office to find out!)
In fact, search for "top ten" in the catalog and you'll cull a surprising number of results, everything from a podcast on how to write the best law school essay to e-books about the most popular print in Elizabethan England, and the nitty-gritty on the need-to-know about the National Flood Insurance Program. If you need any help fixing on or finding items for your own cream-of-the-crop-lists, we are here to help!
