Exams are nearly over and summer is nearly here (notwithstanding spring’s rather reluctant arrival), so no doubt everyone’s mind is turning to their summer reading. The Guardian newspaper has very thoughtfully compiled a reading list for you, and we have a number of the books in our collection, including a DVD in one case. Your summer reading list is ready for pick-up!
Of the top six nominations, we have (in the order set out in The Guardian):
- Glanville Williams, Learning the Law,
- Helena Kennedy, Eve Was Framed
- Charles Dickens, Bleak House, book; eBook; DVD
- Of the other nominations, we have:
- Richard Susskind, The End of Lawyers
- Geoffrey Robertson, The Justice Game
- Madsen Pirie, How to Win Every Argument: The Use and Abuse of Logic, (at Scott library)
- James Holland, Learning Legal Rules
- John Kelly, A Short History of Western Legal Theory
- Paul Dershowitz, The Best Defense
Other books in the top six recommendations for you to hunt down (try your public library):

Of course, we have plenty more DVDs and law-related fiction in our fiction corner in the northwest corner of the main floor of the library, in the midst of the study rooms.
