Are you reading about the great lawyers who practiced law before you?

I was inspired to become a lawyer and I was inspired to become a better lawyer when I read about the great lawyers from the past and present. I am not sure young lawyers are doing it today. So, I wanted to recommend some books for you.

I am not sure if it is a generational thing, or just me, but when I read these books, I felt like I was right there in the courtroom watching some of the most famous trial lawyers of the 20th century .

One last thing: If you are a trial lawyer and want to read about famous trials, like many tried by the lawyers mentioned above, you must go to professor Douglas Linder’s Famous Trials website. Every trial lawyer will find something inspiring there.
