about

While popular TV shows such as Law & Order and bestselling novels such as Presumed Innocent present a sexy, seductive portrayal of the law profession, Richard Moll offers a rare -- and realistic-- inside look at the law and the men and women who practice it.

In a book that's perfect for prospective law school students and citizens interested in a deeper look at the legal system, Richard Moll investigates the people behind the personas: practicing lawyers, would-be lawyers, and ex-lawyers through dynamic interviews.

The differences between public perceptions and private reality emerge when he examines what lured each one of them to their particular type of practice; what they actually do; and what being a lawyer has done to them.
