The Careerist recently posted an interesting interview with Joseph M. Hassett, Hogan Lovells attorney and Yeats scholar.   I like.  Hassett’s book, W.B. Yeats and the Muses, is available on  Amazon.   A little pricey, but there are a few used copies available for $ 30 less. 

I plan to pick up a copy of Woman Lawyer: The Trials of Clara Foltz.   Foltz was the first woman lawyer on the West Coast (we in Maryland are proud of our own Margaret Brent), leader of the woman rights movement and the first person to advocate state-sponsored counsel for indigent defendants.  The author, Barbara A. Babcock, is no slouch herself. 

Law students or those considering law school should read The Jim Report: My Life in Law School, by Jim Reavis.   A collection of funny emails composed by Reavis while he was in law school, it ends with Reavis’ 2010 decision not to take the bar examination.  It’s not 1L, but it’s worth a read.
