A Career in Law? – Pic of the Week

Share this post:

In this week’s staff interview, Hope O’Keeffe tells us she signed up for the LSAT after taking a class called, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”  This inspired me to check the collection for books which may offer advice on becoming a lawyer.  Today’s Pic of the Week is a sampling of what I found, past and present.  Note the blatantly gender biased early twentieth century resources.


The Law as a Vocation,  Frederick J. Allen.

Should You Really be a Lawyer? : the Guide to Smart Career Choices Before, During & After Law School,  Deborah Schneider and Gary Belsky.

The Young Man and the Law, Simeon E. Baldwin.


  1. I want to become a lwayer, and I may get one of these books and read a little. But do i need to read a book to find if I want to become a lawyer? I do not think so. 🙂
