Jeremy Blachman and Cameron Stracher
The story of students at Manhattan Law School, a decrepit institution on the edge of the toxic Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, who are geographically challenged and mad as hell—in debt up to their eyeballs and fighting over the few legal jobs left for those who are far outside the Ivy League.
How to convey legal information in a cogent, persuasive way to the client who needs the help, to opposing counsel and to the decision-maker who has to make the final call.
Sherlock Holmes meets Bridget Jones when fast-talking, face-blind lawyer Liz Howe finds the managing partner dead in the stairwell.

John H. Johnson, PhD, and Mike Gluck
Understanding the little data can help you make smarter, more informed decisions at work, at home and in every aspect of your life.

M. Gerald Schwartzbach
Part memoir, part case history, Schwartzbach demonstrates why and how true justice can only happen when we refuse to objectify the defendant—whether it be Hollywood actor Robert Blake or Hootan Roozrokh, the youngest transplant surgeon in the United States—regardless of his or her alleged crime.
Ben W. Heineman Jr.
A succinct, concrete yet visionary statement of first principles from a highly regarded founder of the in-house revolution that fundamentally changed the legal profession and reframed the lawyer-statesman role in this era to serve the performance, integrity and risk goals of global capitalism.
G. William Quatman

A satirical novel lampooning injustices in the criminal justice system.

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions” inspires this collection of short stories involving lives caught up in the criminal justice system.
A hit man and a lawyer team up to defeat a joint client. Kirkus Reviews says: “The author retains her tongue-in-cheek narrative all the way until the final act, a coda that’s both unnerving and gleefully comical.”

An inside view of adoptive parenting told in a unique writer’s voice. Humorous, sharp and poignant. Simply put, “a great read.”
