You don't have to puzzle all on your own. You can use the books and websites listed in our newly revised guide, Careers: Legal Specialties & Practice Settings. The resources will help you learn about specialties as diverse as criminal law, estate planning, and intellectual property law, and practice settings including solo practice, government work, and biglaw. We even have a section on law librarianship (a fine profession!).

Go ahead: check out some of these books. Our library picked them out just for you (and your classmates).
