The Official Guide to Legal Specialties
Lisa Abrams, 2000.
This book, based on interviews with lawyers who enjoy their work,
offers a comprehensive look at 30 practice area specialty areas, from
anti-trust to trusts and estates. The guide incorporates interviews
with 130 attorneys from private law firms of all sizes, solo
practitioners, public interest organizations, and government agencies.
The profiled attorneys describe their career paths and provide insight
into their daily work. The author describes the basics of each practice
area, details what students/graduates need to know to practice in that
area, and encourages readers to find a practice area that is a good fit
with their own strengths and interests.
