"Takes a close look at significant legal stories with an eye toward addressing the legal myths and misconceptions that turn up in news stories, movies, TV programs, websites, anonymous emails and other forms of mass communications. Provides readers with a thoughtful examination of what the media and others are saying about the legal profession, while providing the frequently-absent context of how the legal system actually works."

Author: Jonathan E. Smaby is the executive director of the Texas Center for Legal Ethics and the co-author of the third edition of Opening and Managing a Law Practice, which is published by the Texas Center for Legal Ethics.
