From School Library Journal Grade 7-12 Short and to the point, this is a clear and informative introduction to the basic philosophies and influences behind the American legal system, its status in today's society, and what it takes to become a lawyer. Some history of the law field is included, but it is not as in-depth as in Franck and Brownstone's Leaders and Lawyers (Facts on File, 1986). It is better on contemporary law, explaining how our legal system operates, types of law practices, and how a lawyer approaches a case. Legal activities which are or are not permitted by non-lawyers are also covered, as are law school and its requirements, the bar exam, and job prospects for graduates. There are no lists of schools or places to contact for more information, notable absences that make the book less complete in this area than Opportunities in Law Careers (VGM Career Horizons, 1986) by Gary Munneke. Yet, without fictionalizing, it does give a true feel for what it is like to be a lawyer. It ends with a look at the future of law practice and the effects of public impressions, less expensive alternatives to professional legal advice, and computer technology. A good overview of lawyers and law for those considering a law career. Diane P. Tuccillo, Mesa Public Library, Ariz.
