|The Good Reads section of the Gallagher Law Library, just west of |
the Student Lounge. Note that this area doesn't include all of our "good reads":
we have thousands of books that might fit your interests.
Albert's top nonfiction recommendation from her book project is The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, by Michelle Alexander. I thought it was great too. See this blog post.
Even though the workload in law school precludes reading huge stacks of unassigned books, many people still find it helpful to keep a book or two going—either to offer a break from all the other reading or to complement it. I could go on and on about this. Oh, wait! I already have! See Good Reads in the Law Library?, 93 Law Libr. J. 517 (2003) and Bitten by the Reading Bug, 105 Law Libr. J. 113 (2013).
And our library has a variety of lists to get you started. See, e.g.,
- Suggested Reading List for Prospective & Current Law Students
- Diversity Readings Related to First-Year Courses
- Diversity in the Legal Profession
