30 Lawyers, 30 Books: Eugene Volokh
The Legal Analyst: A Toolkit for Thinking about the Law by Ward Farnsworth
Eugene Volokh, a former clerk for retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, teaches constitutional law at UCLA. He also writes about constitutional issues on the Volokh Conspiracy, a highly popular and influential legal blog.
The Legal Analyst “clearly and helpfully explains the structure of various kinds of legal arguments—arguments about efficiency, public goods, slippery slopes, hindsight, bias and more. An excellent book for law students, soon-to-be law students and lawyers.”
